On tap at the brewpub.

The beer pours a hazy golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of brett, leather funk and a little bit of grass. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of cherry and leather notes as well as a little bit of brett funk. There is also a decent amount of sourness mixed in to the flavor. Very dry and very easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. One of the best North By Northwest beers I have drank. Definitely one to seek out.

On-tap at NXNW, served in a snifter. Described as a "Wild Golden Ale" on the tap handle.

Brett X pours with a golden orange hue that sits hazily beneath a hefty tuft of meringue-colored head. Aroma is bretty up front with earthy undertones and a backing of pale malt. Sharp, sourish white grape rinds round out the nose and make for an enticing profile.

The flavor replaces most of the perceivable Brett funk and any tartness with tangy, fruity yeast esters and booziness. The finish is sharp and cloyingly sweet to the point of having difficulty putting away an 8oz pour. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with a tight carbonation level. NXNW needed to let this one develop a bit longer before releasing it. The Brett is there in the nose, but it needs more time to eat through some of the residual sugars to both lessen the sweetness and make the funky Brett flavor more pronounced.
