This pours a lightly golden-tan in color, as seen in the dim light of the bar. There’s a subdued Brett aroma which emerges as it warms. I found the Brett character to come across while sipping, although it passes quickly. Not as pronounced of a funky character as I had hoped for, but nonetheless still an excellent sipper. (325 characters)

Misleading name, decidedly lacking in funk. It's not an off-putting beer by any stretch, offering some sweet/tart apple notes, but its dearth of funkiness keeps it mostly forgettable, as does a watery body, lack of any sort of yeast intrigue/character, etc. (257 characters)

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a FW Snifter.

L- Hazy, yellow/orange...lots of bubbles here. Small head that never fades due to the ever-forming bubbles.

S- I get a sweaty, fruity kind of thing right off....maybe a sweet tropical kind of fruit. Nice funk. Maybe a little pepper. I really enjoy the aroma.

T- Follows the nose with a little clove.

F- Quite prickly. Very carbonated...be careful with this or it'll explode. Going to take my time and enjoy this one all evening. (478 characters)

On-tap @ the source.

A: Pours a slightly hazed pale yellow with a big-bubbled 1/4-inch thick head which leaves splotches of lace.

N: Floral and citrusy with some funky brett.

T: Mild bretty, floral, mild wheat notes.

M: Semi-moderate body and semi-medium carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

O: Good, but not quite the funk I was expecting. (338 characters)

On tap.

A clear light orange with a thin, off white head. The nose is solid. Bright, rustic Brett character, mildly sulfury , mildly pineapple like, honey, clove, pepper. Yum. The palate opens with a mild fruitiness, hay, clove, earth, pepper, light must, Brett, clove and pineapple. Light in body with crisp carbonation, this beer is great. Nice texture, especially as it warms up. (385 characters)

Two different strains of Brettanomyces, the brewer says. Pale yellow with a brief white head. This is a textbook example of how Bret tastes without the souring bacteria. Dry, but with a smooth malty flavor. Light body, tangy, but well short of acidity.

The Bret give this a dense, aromatic intensity. Meaty with a light fruit touch. Even some straw and the usual pear skins and cidery tang. Dry finish, but not the common mineral and ash overkill. It's so smooth and interesting. An education in a glass, if you're looking to learn something. On tap at the brewery. (566 characters)
