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

From 01/11/13 notes. Had this on tap at The Jeffrey in NYC. 14oz our in a snifter.

a - Pours a hazy bright orange color with one inch of bright white head and low to moderate carbonation evident. Looks nice and bright.

s - Smells of oranges, citra hops, brett, light funk, mangos and tropical fruits, straw, floral hops, and earthy malts. Nice nose with a lot or oranges and brett to it; I like it a lot.

t - Tastes of oranges, brett, tropical fruits, mangos, pineapples, citrus hops, floral notes, light earthy funk, wheat, and grapefruit. More mangos and tropical fruits; pretty awesome taste. Like it slightly better than the nose.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink.

o - Overall I liked this one a lot; I'm a sucker for IPA's that use Mangos and tropical fruits, and I love brett. reminds me of a few Tired Hands IPA's I've had like Magotago and Extra Knuckle, but will light brett. Worth checking out, would love to have it again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a dirty pineapple hue with a creamy two finger head and lacing all around,I really like this smell it's a classic Brett IPA aroma with hints of pineapple,funky Brett,bitter piney hops and obviously use yuzu fruit along with mandarins and it's a beautiful mix of sweet and sour,the mouthfeel is near perfect it's Medium bodied,creamy and a touch over moderate carbonation which suits this rather sessionable funky IPA with a near perfect balance of bitter piney hops vs funky sour Brett vs sweet pineapple and mandarins and yeah it's well balanced with none of the three tastes dominating but all having their place in
Making this a tasty Brett IPA all though not outstanding it's a great example of balance which won't last long in my fridge cheers.

4.26/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Very cloudy orange-yellow with a huge, dense, foamy head after each pour. Lacing is sticky and abundant, though not patterned

Scent: A wallop of fresh citrus, light crackery malt, band-aid (yeah yeah), pineapple, lemon and orange peel, hay, lightly medicinal

Taste: Mango, citrus peel, apricot, yuzu (like grapefruit but more bitter), powdery yeast, very light crackery malt, light green apple tartness

Mouthfeel: Hugely effervescent though puckeringly dry; light-medium feel all the way down; great balance of flavor to carbonation

Drinkability: This is light, bright and fruity enough to appeal to a wider audience than typical Brett beers, but fancy enough to demand attention

Overall: One of the most engaging, delightful and playful beers I've had the pleasure of imbibing lately. Super complex and interesting flavor profile is enhanced by the Brett fermentation to bring out very intense, fruity, funky and citric flavors while still being bright and well-rounded. Not too funky but also ever-evolving and impressively enjoyable. Bonus points for the nice, low-ish ABV and slight tartness. Brett IPAs are the future!

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

On-tap at Cask in London.

Beer is golden with a large white head. Good retention.

Nice fruity smell, which is obviously yuzu. Not much else gets through to my nose, but the yuzu smell is very nice on its own.

I cannot pretend to be sure what yuzu tastes like, but the beer features a prominent fruit flavour that is obviously yuzu. Quite dominant, but nice. A bit of additional citrus flavours as well, and some sight malty backbone. Moderately bitter.

Medium bodied, moderately to highly carbonated.

Overall, quite nice, but a bit one-dimensional in terms of flavour.

4.34/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours a light, yellowish orange. Hazy, cloudy liquid. Medium to medium-large head, white. Good lacing, retention, bubbles, etc. Pretty similar to my memories of the other versions of Femme Fatale that I've tried. Nice level of citrus peel in the aroma. The yuzu is prominent but doesn't dominate. I can still smell some simply sweet, fresh grain notes and pleasant hoppiness. Hops probably have some citrus to them but also lend a more floral aroma with a little bit of pine. Mild fruity brett flavors - peaches, plums, etc. It's always hard to describe a clean brett aroma but it's there. That punchy yuzu citrus is a great centerpiece for this beer. The taste starts lightly sweet before more bitter flavors start popping in. The hops/yuzu bring a mix of citrus with some grassiness, though the citrus is unsurprisingly stronger. Bitterness is firm but not over the top. Finishes dry and clean. Normal carbonation. Pretty light feel. Easy to drink. Refreshing beer. I've been a big fan of the Femme Fatale line and this one lives up to its predecessors. The brett is clean and fruity and dries the beer out nicely, which gives the hops and yuzu more room to shine. Very well made. Evil Twin and Westbrook deserve a lot of credit, even if I wished the bottle carried a lower price tag.
