Sampled this on-tap at the Grand Teton Brewery on June 17, 2011. I was told by the bartender that "Who's Brett?" is one of Grand Teton's earlier doppelbock recipes that got inocculated with wild yeast strains (including Brettanomyces). Going off the taste and ABV, I'm guessing Double Vision Doppelbock was the base for this beer. Following review composed from notes.

Served in a clear, plastic pint.

Appearance: Body is deep brown with caramel tints on the outermost edges. Head is brown and creamy with orange hues; boasts fantastic retention and blanket-like lacing. Even in a plastic cup, this looks beautiful!

Smell: Raspberries, cocoa, and molasses, finished off with a touch of Brett-y tartness. Lemon-lime creeps in as the beer warms, eventually becoming a large component of the overall aroma. On the sweet end.

Taste: Chocolate berry cake (rich, with loads of frosting), mild caramel, then char, earthy bitterness, and lemon juice. The acidic tartness and decadent chocolate clash quite a bit; although this one is interesting, to say the least.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, generously carbonated, bitter, and tart. Flavors cling to the palate deep into the aftertaste.

Overall: I'm not a big fan of roasted malts and wild yeast, but this one was alright. Worth a try if you ever come across it.
