Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this

Consumed 3/25/14

Appearance: Hazy gold with some light orange, tangerine tones - some nice clarity around the edges - pours with a medium-sized, off-white head - leaves some nice streaks of lacing

Smell: Potent, pungent Brett - truly a ridiculous amount of Brett funk - some barnyard aromas, with a touch of lemon - some nice citrus from the dry-hopping - floral citrus - some straight-up sour, with acidic and lactic notes - remarkably aromatic - I haven't been this dumbfounded by an aroma in quite some time

Taste: Hoppy and sour with a ton of Brett - moderately sour, with some tartness - lemon, green apple, and some white grapes - some nice hops, with citrus that interacts in some strange ways with the funk - plenty of Brett - finishes with some grass, some acidity, and some bright tartness

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, tart but not puckering, nice carbonation

Overall: We are the wild Brett

This beer is fairly ridiculous on a couple of levels. It's extremely aromatic with some really interesting flavors. There are a number of components of this beer, and they work together oddly well. This is a gem worth seeking out.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy bright orange. Nice white head that doesn't last.

Smell - Smells herbal, citrusy, lemony. Brett. Interesting for sure. Almost smells dry-hopped.

Taste - Lemony and herbal tang. Very bretty. Bright tanginess. Orange citrus flavor. Really delicious.

Mouthfeel - Light and crisp. Well carbonated.

Overall - I could drink a ton of this. Truly excellent.
