This didn't really resemble an APA in my opinion at all. I'd say wit h the addition of the Brett that it is more of a Wild Ale. But anyway, this beer poured out as a cloudy milky yellow color with a creamy white head on top. The retention and lacing are both pretty good. The smell of the beer gives off a modest amount of the Brett on the nose, lemon and lime citric adic come to mind. The taste of the beer is slightly tart with the base of the beer kind of lost somewhere in the middle. The mouthfeel was smooth, lightly carbonated and pretty drinkable. Overall it's an average beer at best. Not something I would need to drink again.

A pale ale brewed with wheat and all Cascade hops. Fermented with two strains of Brett.

Poured from a 1L growler into a snifter.

Poured an opaque, hazy, golden straw color with minimal carbonation. Had a very small amount of head that dissipated rather quickly. Looks rather dull..until you take a whiff. Delicious citrus smell, lemon is most predominant with a definite Brett funk. The smell alone makes you want to drink it. Has a well-balanced taste, with the citrus most notable. As it hits the back of your taste buds, the Brett takes over and is quite a pleasant surprise. It is very thin and smooth with the perfect amount of carbonation for the style. Like the previous reviewer, this is a style that is not brewed often enough. Bravo to Tired Hands for this delicious treat. I will certainly be heading back there to get this growler refilled.

First had: on tap at the brewpub

This was interesting, mainly due to the appearance. I don't know if there was something up with the beer or the tap line, but I've never seen a beer that looked like this. It poured a completely opaque, milky-yellow color, like grapefruit juice mixed with milk--not an exaggeration--topped with a thick, creamy white head that made the glass resemble the top two layers of a Jell-O 1-2-3 (remember those?). After I got mine, the beer was pouring as practically unserveable mounds of thick foam, but I'm assuming they corrected the whatever the problem was eventually. Aroma was thick with Brett, grass, lemon zest, mild funk. Fairly zesty up front in the taste, with an obvious Brett character throughout, bready, crackery, grassy... This is labeled an APA here, but I don't really know why. If that's truly what it is, it bares nearly no resemblance whatsoever. Body was light-medium, and despite the awkwardness of the pour, it was still a nice and drinkable brew overall.
