look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Pours a cloudy medium golden yellow in color with moderate to significant amounts of active visible carbonation quickly rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint straw yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a half finger thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of tropical/pineapple and citrus/tangerine hops over moderate aromas of brett funkiness and just a touch of slightly sweet grainy malts.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of slightly sweet grainy malts which are quickly overtaken by the moderate to strong flavors from the hops - tropical/pineapple, citrus/tangerine, and tropical/passionfruit. There is a light flavor of light fruit/white grape and a moderate amount of brett hay-like and spicy funkiness. Light amounts of bitterness which does not linger for long.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly prickly with a light to moderate amount of dryness.

O: Really nice combination of flavors/aromas between the Nelson Sauvin hops and the Brett - they really complement each other and there is enough complexity to keep it interesting. Easy to drink and very enjoyable - well hidden alcohol.

2 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours lightly hazy bright gold color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pineapple, tangerine, melon, white grape, passion fruit, orange peel, clove, pepper, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright hops and moderate fruity/spicy brett notes; with good strength. Taste of pineapple, tangerine, white grape, passion fruit, melon, orange peel, clove, pepper, floral, grass, pine, and grass/yeast earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness and peppery yeast on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, tangerine, melon, white grape, passion fruit, orange peel, clove, pepper, floral, grass, pine, and grass/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of bright hops and fruity/spicy brett flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Brett IPA. All around great complexity and balance of bright hops and fruity/spicy brett flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours a cloudy, golden color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of strong hops (citrus and piney), sweet malt, slight earthy malt, alcohol, slight citrus, hint of wet hops, slight spice (clove), and hint of grass. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable tartness. Tastes of sweet malt, citrus hops, clove, yeast, slight grass, hint of earthy malt, and slight alcohol. Overall, good appearance, aroma, blend, body, and complexity. This IPA had much more tartness, astringency, and grassy aromas and flavors than I was expecting, but it was nevertheless, great. This beer strongly resembles a Saison, but of the hoppy extremes.

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.

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.

Pours a glowy orange. Lighter at the sides. Very cloudy. Medium off-white head. Good retention, some lacing. The aroma is a tangerines, white grape juice, pineapple, apricots, blackberries, clean funk, pine, earth, dusty barnyards, fresh grain and some sort of yeasty spice note. The hops smell fresh and bright. It's a somewhat citrus-heavy expression of Nelson, but the white wine flavors are still there, and it's still adds a wonderful element. I really, really like brett combined with Nelson. The taste is full of fresh grain and hop flavor. There's a grassier twist to the taste, but there's still plenty of Nelson fruitiness. More clean brett funk and some solid yeast fruitiness. Starts mildly sweet with pale malt but finishes dry and light. Carbonation is pretty normal. There's some definite body to the beer but it sits lightly on the palate and goes down easily. I'm a big fan of the Femme Fatale line, and this is another winner. All brett IPAs are tasty things, and Nelson is pretty much always a winner.

Pours a cloudy golden body with decent head and lace and has an aroma that is airy, floral, hoppy but not overpowering with minimal sweet malts. Beer retains an easy drinking smoothness even with the dry finish and a large citric hop presence, perhaps the yeast smoothens it out and there are touches of sugary/grapey sweetness. Mostly, the beer has dry, grassy hops with some spice and tartness (possibly could be described as sourness) thanks to the Brett. A wonderful change of pace from other IPAs or "hoppy Saisons" and I really enjoyed this as all the little different aspects worked well together.

Splitting a bottle with Merc, just hit shelves today

The beer pours a very cloudy (lambic-like cloudiness) golden yellow with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. The nose is potently hoppy (white grape, citrus, passion fruitiness) with a hint of sweetness, but very little barnyard. The taste is pleasantly hoppy, a touch funky, and semi-sweet finish. It's a definitely a medium bodied, bretty IPA with a delicious hop profile. Very drinkable. I'm impressed by this beer and like it the most out of the femme fatale series.
