Poured from a 22oz bomber into a Duvel Tulip. Split with my brother-in-law.
A: Bright golden color - relatively aggressive pour leads to a 2 finger head. Hazy, not clear.
S: Funk. Barnyard, funky, feet and some light malt flavor as well. We couldn't come up with why it smelled like feet and then we realized it was the Brett.
T: Brett rules. It's such a nice combination of funky barnyard, citrus zest and hoppy bitter mixed all in together.
M: Light body, nice carbonation.
O: Easy drinker, funky ass brett. I love this yeast when done well...this is middle of the pack Brett beer, which makes it excellent.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a goblet. Thank you Keith for this one, appreciate it man.
A- Pours a very, very hazy dull yellow body with a decent sized white head that reduces slowly and leaves blotchy lacing. Opaque.
S- Very nice on the nose.. barnyard funk, belgian yeast, citrus rind, lemongrass primarily, some malt and fruit in the background, bananas and spices.
T- Upfront I get an even combination of the Brett yeast, citrus peel, and belgian spices. Funky, yeasty, and spicy notes all show up on the follow through. The IPA character of this beer eventually shows its head on the finish, in which a slightly bitter resinous note sticks on the tongue.
M- Medium mouthfeel, low carbonation. Easy drinker.
I did enjoy this beer - I really wish the taste followed the enticing aromas a little more, I was expecting more funkyness on the tongue. Overall very good and recommendable, though.
