Tastes like olive brine, drain cleaner and perfume, all mixed together. Slight funk, probably from a souring bacteria or wild yeast, and a heavy phenolic presence I associate with infected homebrew. Those flavors combine with the massive hopping to create an artificial perfumey-chemical aroma and flavor. It's interesting, and tastes better if you keep trying and get used to it, but it never gets past 'horribly infected' to me.

CLOUDY ORANGE WITH COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF HEAD ON A LESS THAT VIGOROUS POUR INTO MY STOLZLE TULIP FROM A SINGLE BOTTLE FROM FAMOUS IN LOMBARD. A BIT OF ANTICIPATION BRINGING IT TO MY NOSE, A LITTLE BISCUIT, A LITTLE CITRUS , A LITTLE UNFAMILIAR, BUT TO MY LIPS THE TASTE PUSHED IT OVER THE EDGE. ALL YOU BRETT LOVERS WON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ME DECREASING THE WORLD WIDE SUPPLY OF BEERS WITH BRETT . IT COULD BE TOP NOTCH BUT NOT WITH THESE FLAVORS. TRYING TO BE OPEN MINDED, BUT THIS STUFF SLAMS THE DOOR SHUT. DARE I SAY NOT A REPEAT. SORRY GREEN FLASH! AS I CONTINUE TO SIP IT, IT ISN'T GROWING ON ME. TO ME TASTE SAYS IT ALL

This beer tasted like it was brewed with dirty socks. At first it was okay, but the warmer it got, the more unbearable the taste became. It tasted more like some kind of strange, bitter hard alcohol than a beer... not something I plan on buying again.

Pours a pale yellow with a head that's at least 40% of the glass when poured by a pro... have napkins ready if you're less practiced or if any of your guests aren't forewarned.

The odor is strong and medicinal -- the closest we could come up with was somewhere between a lemon dish soap and, as noted by the server, vaguely reminiscent of a freshly opened plastic Band-aid.

The taste was much better than the smell ... but there was enough taste that matched the odor to make it hard to pull out the details a more refined palate might notice.

Mouthfeel was light and pleasant.
