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.

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.

22 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with a big meringue white head that retains and laces the glass.

The aroma is tropical fruits with some musty funk and some sharp brett.

The flavor is sweet wheaty malts with tropical fruit and a musty yeasty hoppiness with a bit of brett. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with sharp carbonation.

Overall, a nice brett ipa with some unique tropical fruit from the yuzu.

Quite pretty straw-gold colored smoothly hazy beer with a nice soft foam white pile atop. I haven't brought it in for a close smell yet, but it's already wafting fruity, juicy aromas my way. Aroma is loaded with pleasant stinky fruit and flowers. Yuzu seems to be fitting its description that I looked up well. Sweet candy lemon, red grapefruit, lime, and tangerine/tangelo. Tropical funk and earthy floral aromas mixed in. Light simple pale bread dough malt smoothly underneath. Intoxicatingly tantalizing aroma... Taste is sweet, perky, and evenly bitter. Tropical kind of citrus, brisk pine, and earthy, juicy, whacky fruit. Lime, citrus skins and pulp. Acidic kind of bitterness kicks in at the finish after a not overwhelming surge of sweetness. Mouthfeel is slick and soft with spicy carbonation. Smacky. Easy to drink and interesting. I think I would like yuzu fruit a lot. Very nice beer here.
