Nice big foamy head. A lot of the brettanomyces barnyard funk in the smell, very nice. The taste is dry and acidic. I was looking for some more sweet tartness. Got a weird aftertaste. Meh

Hazy orange color. Nice head retention with sticky lacing. Hoppy, citric aroma. Funky with lots of Brett in the nose. Base flavor of stale rye bread. Brett funk hits full force and leaves a nasty staleness behind. Spiciness from the hops is over-shadowed by the funk. Medium bodied with a coarse, sandy texture. Even bit down on a couple crunchy chunks of residue. Overall, nice idea but the execution was poor.

Lovely texture in the mouth with strong, pleasant papaya flavour and a subtle sweet milkiness with a hint of butterscotch. The aroma was addictive and lent a lot of enjoyment to the experience. Delicately balanced. Would definitely order this again. :)

Pours a medium copper color. White ring of head.

Fruity aroma, full of tree fruit and hoppy citrus.

Tart, funky, bright citrus hops, big bitterness, some fusel. Dry, lightly tart. Dry oak and lots of hops. Definitely some damp basement must in the flavor. Medium dry body and funky finish.

Overall this is a solid experiment. Well done.
