A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down but never completely faded away, leaving a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of orange and tangerine citrus zest are present in the nose along with notes of sourness from the brett.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts out with flavors of zested yuzu citrus, which are followed by notes of sourness towards the middle of the taste. A light to moderate amount of hop bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to have a nice balance between the yuzu fruit and brett as you can smell and taste both of them in nearly equal proportions.

Poured this 22 oz. brown bottle into a Sam Adams glass. No date. The body was golden with a light haze. The head was white and clingy.

The smell was candy and pine needles. Damp bricks and clementines. Bold delicious aromas.

The taste was citrus and kiwi fruit. Ground pepper and lemons. There was a gentle funky bite I attribute to Belgian yeast. Hints of soap. Grapefruit pith and a drying finish.

The body was light to medium and a bit dreamy. I would seek this out again.

Pours a light amber with huge, dense, structurally sound head. Smell: tons of lime, grapefruit peel, slightly acetic, peppery, sugar cookie dough. Taste: lemon-lime, tons of sweet orange, crackery and sugary back, lsightly acetic with an herbal/woodsy note in the finish. Fantastic.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a hazy golden amber with a massive three finger white head that had good retention and left pillowy lacing. Aroma is very citrusy lemon and orange with hints of tropical fruit, faint biscuit malt, quite pleasant and estery. Flavor is also citrus forward, dominated by a mildly tart grapefruit citrus, presumably the yuzu, with peripheral exotic fruit flavors; light to moderate brett and a light bready, biscuit malt body. Medium bodied with a bit of nice creaminess. My second Femme Fatale with a new Japanese citrus fruit, and like the Sudachi version, the fruit really has some interesting, pleasant unidentifiable flavors. This one seems to lean towards grapefruit and lime with some woody, earthy herbal notes. Once again, not my go to style, but this completely won me over for the exotic citrus flavors and light touch of brett and mild tartness. These ales are the best chance to win me over to sour styles, but I'm not there yet. Nicely done. Looking forward to the Kabosu and whatever they think of next.

Bought in juni 2014. Best before 2015-03-13.

Hazy yellow beer with a three finger high, white fluffy head.
Brewed at Westbrook with brettanomyces yeast and added Yuzu fruit.

Nose: Citrus, flower, herbs, grass, parfume, sweet orange marmelade and hops.
Taste: Citrus peel, grass, pinapple, sweet orange and grapefruit. A sour feeling with a bitterness that stays on your tounge for a long time.
Mouth: Medium body. Crisp carbonation.

Easy dringking, great Brett-Yuzu ale!

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

Pours a slightly hazed bronze with w thumb of pearl colored head. Very good head retention & lacing

S: Tons of grapefruit, pineapple & orange

T: Grapefruit peel, slight hints of melon, lemon rind, a little bready sweetness & pineapple up front. Dryness, more pineapple & grapefruit as this warms, a little brett tartness/sourness sneaks in as well. Finishes with grapefruit, restrained brett presence & a little lemon zest, & other cirtrus notes ( the yuzu? )

MF: Medium bodied, lively carbonation, nice balance

Drinks very easy, would drink this often if not for the price
