3.91/5  rDev -3.9%

22oz bottle into a snifter

A: Pours a very clear light golden color with two fingers of fluffy white head. Great retention and lacing. Active carbonation throughout. Near perfect.

S: Nice citrusy hops combine with stone fruits and some funk. Smells quite dry. White wine comes in afterwards. The hop/funk/wine go together extremely well in a fruity/funky/earthy kind of way. Impressive.

T: Citrus and pine hops are now upfront. Quite dry with a touch of funk, but not much. Wine is way in the background. Very subdued. When the yeast is poured, it provides a bit more flavor that helps the dryness.

M: Medium thickness with great carbonation. Exactly where it needs to be.

O: The aroma on this is amazing. The taste is just slightly above average. Not bad.

My brother was kind enough to bring a gift by this week...a variety care package of beer...
Left Hand, Sol, Grand Teton, Flying Dog and Evil Twin....very nice.
Let's speak of the Evil Twin today...very unique, indeed.
American IPA meets Bavarian Wheat...awesome!
No doubt that this is a marrage made in heaven..
Up Front taste:
Extreme hoppy, exotic citrus flavor mango-pineapple-apricot...even kind of lemony
Backend taste and finish:
Lemony lingers...mild tangerine and then the Belgainy banana and bubble gum flavors fade out the palate.
Bitterness lets you know this wants to be an IPA....but that bubble gum finish leaves no reseny feel...I do love this beer.
Very unfiltered and yellow/orange hue is gorgous.
I give this ole' jewel a rating of 4 out of 5.

4.76/5  rDev +17%

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip

A- Cloudy Apricot orange with a nice 2 fingers of head that stays around. Looks very Farmhouse to me.

S- Was not expecting the hop presence this thing has! Whoa! I'm getting lots of Berries, dry white wine, Oranges, Pineapple juice. Very Tropical and lush with a slight wine finish. Love it. Smelled this beer over and over and over, almost didn't want to drink it

T-Same as the smell. Tastes like an orange juice pineapple juice mix with a dry white wine finish. Also getting some slight funk towards the end which I'm assuming is the Brett showing up to the party.

M- Farmhouse like carb. Seems bottle conditioned. Very creamy mouth feel and is almost like drinking juice

O- Wish I knew how old this bottle is. This is my first all Brett IPA and I have no clue why there aren't swarms of them around. Reminds me of a IPA/Saison cross. Total Nelson Sauvin showcase. Wondering if the Brett preserves some of the hop smell/flavor? This is the type of beer I wish I had a case of to review from inception and see how it changes as it ages. If you see this thing laying around pick it up! if not let me know and I will.

4.06/5  rDev -0.2%

650 mL bottle poured into a goblet.

Appearance - Hazy light orange body. Nice white head. Sticky lacing and a few chunky islands of foam on the surface.

Smell - From a distance, I smell brett. Once I really take a whiff, I don't get anywhere near as much brett. Sweet tropical fruits all over up close. Some herbal notes, but once I hone in on those tropical fruits, that's all I smell. Some sweet doughy malts behind it along with some clove spiciness.

Taste - Big tropical fruit sweetness and hop flavor. Cloves are more prominent, reminiscent of a Belgian IPA. Earthy flavors kick in immediately though. Some sweet malts and toasty grain flavors come through, but brett and herbal hops dominate the back end. Mild bitterness from the hops, seems to be some from the yeast, though.

Mouthfeel - Lots of flavors going on for a single IPA. Medium bodied. Well carbonated. A little abrasive on the back end.

Overall - I'm enjoying this more and more as I drink it. Dynamic flavors.

4.2/5  rDev +3.2%

Pours a semi-hazed bronze with 3+ fingers of billowy pearl white head. Great lacing & good head retention (4.5)

S: Grassyness, sourness, & grapefruit (4.0)

T: Follows the nose, not quite that sour up front. Some pear notes as this warms, more grapefruit, a little pineapple, & some brett sourness. Finishes with pineapple, grapefruit & grassy sourness (4.25)

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, nice balance (4.0)

Drinks easy enough. Makes for a nice change of pace, but Brett IPAs are not life-changing (4.25)

4.01/5  rDev -1.5%

Served from bottle into a Mikkeller Teku (almost proper). Poured a hazy golden yellow-orange with a one finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, spice, smoke, citrus, citrus hop, earth hop, wood, bubblegum, and subtle white wine. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, earth, earth hop, bubblegum, and spices. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. I was really quite surprised to find some of the flavors and aromas that I did in this one. Particularly the bubblegum notes in both. This added a nice touch of fruity sweetness that really helped to balance out every other aspect of this one. A really quite well done brew that I'm glad I got the chance to tick.

4.36/5  rDev +7.1%

Poured from a 750ml bottle, there is a very slight head which disappears quickly. The beer is a clear golden color. The smell of hops is very distinct. The hoppy beer has wonderful complex fruity and citrus flavors. There is a sweetness on the back end but it is dominated by the strong delicious hops. Hop flavor goes up ones nose as the beer moves from the front to the back of the mouth. There is a very nice sharp carbonation, but not too strong. A perfect crisp mouthfeel. This is a very good IPA.

4.25/5  rDev +4.4%

A: deep gold and hazed; pillar of white head a few fingers high (watch yer pour - this is a heady beer); laces and motes down the sides

S: bright fruits, citric and tropical; oak white wine barrels; mild brett aromas throughout

T: the hops and brett work with the malt to bring some suggestions of pale fruits and dry, dank funkiness; slightly woody

M: light and crisp; fuzzy and fizzy; modest bitterness; drying finish with brett written all over it

O: there's something distinct about IPAs with brett done right, and I suppose there will be detractors, but I enjoy the balance struck between hops (in this case, Nelson Sauvin) and brett and pale malts. In this beer, balance is good term, and all the elements of the ale mesh together very smoothly. Sister ales, Femme Fatale Brett and Femme Fatale Yuzu Pale, are notable as well.

3.94/5  rDev -3.2%

Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a thin white head that dissipates into small patches and a ring around the glass, with light lacing. Aroma of orange and grapefruit, lighter stone and tropical fruit. Faint hints of grassy hops and brett. Flavor of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, light sweet malt, wild yeast slightly earthy Finishes drier with spicy hops and brett. Light bodied with nice active carbonation. A nice IPA and wild ale hybrid. Fairly complex with an interesting flavor progression and a couple of flavor elements that are unidentifiable, but interesting.
