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.

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.

375 mL bottle poured into a HF wine glass. Courtesy of Denverbeerdrinker. Served at 50F

A: Coudu straw gold body with a thin 1" head. Tiny bubbles and the head dies quickly. Mild lacing on the glass. Gentle swirling regenerates about 50% of the head.

S: Pale ale all the way. Mild dry hopping and a touvch of earthy funk and lactic sour.Very nice alteration on the style.

T: Sweet, tart, hoppy...what is this? Lemonade, bitter citrus, sweet roasted malt. Elements of lemony funk, barnyard and a touch of wood. Complex, but well balanced. Brett must be lambicus and bruxellensis focused.

M: Light and well carbonated. Clen finish with mild sweetness. It lingers ever so slightly, but the tartness clenses the palate.

O: Amazing example of twisting a classic style. Love this bee. Chad...more please?
