Sun golden yellow in appearance with a slight orange hue about it.

Whoa!!!! This brew smells funky! There is no doubt in my mind at this point this is a wild ale. Explosive malt sweetness to the extreme.

Definitely not for me, very sour and dry. No hop presence whatsoever and that's what I'm into. I enjoyed this beer until I tasted it.

Mouthfeel is dry and sour.

Overall, wasn't expecting to be thrilled as I'm not a huge wild ale fan to begin with, but this is definitely not for me. Not awful, just not my cup of tea.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer

Consumed 3/26/14

Appearance: Hazy orange gold - pours with a large, white head - fades to a nice cap, leaves some nice streaks and spots of lacing

Smell: Lots of Brett, as the name would imply - very funky with a load of straight-up, pungent Brett - some barnyard funk, with some dirt, and some light fruits - white grapes and some green apples - citrus in the background that mixes with the Brett in some weird ways - some other layers of funk that I can't quite describe

Taste: Pungent Brett and some citrus - very yeasty, with a ton of funk - some barnyard and wet, dirty basement - some fruity esters including green apple, white grapes, and lemon - some nice citrus notes including orange and grapefruit flesh, with some tropical notes - some pale and caramel malts at the base - finishes with more Brett and tartness

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nicely carbonated, nicely tart

Overall: Excellently executed

This smells funky, but I'm guessing it smells much better than a WWE locker room. I'm glad I had a chance to try this before (I'm guessing) Against the Grain receives a cease and desist letter. Regardless of the name, this is a good beer, with some nice funk and nice tartness.

Shared with a large group of individuals during a gaming night. This was the first brew of the evening and by far the one with the most character... in a bad way.

A- Looked fine. Nothing special to note either way.
S- OOOHHHH MAN! Seriously, this is one pungent brew. It smelled sort of like concentrated rotten lemons. The citrus was beyond overpowering and when combined with some of the other ingredients, it smelled extremely musty. We found the smell comical and made everyone smell the contents. Suffice to say, each reaction was priceless.
T- Overpoweringly citrus.
M- Nothing special to note here.
O- This beer could double as a gag gift and it is worth the cost just to watch your buddy's faces crumble as they smell it.
