Not my style but I definitely appreciate why people enjoy it. Beautiful deep amber in appearance. Funky aroma. Taste is incredibly complex. Fruity IPA upfront, with a sudden transition to funkiness, very dry finish. Wow.

2016 bottle. Graciously aged for 1 year at a local beer store.

Pours golden with an orange hue and a nice white head that sticks around. Solid lacing left on side of glass. Aroma is funky, ruby red grapefruit, pineapple, a bit winey, a little woody, a touch of cracker, and a little grassy. Flavor is all sorts of great. Ruby red grapefruit is the highlight, pineapple, some funk in there, wine and the barrel, a mildly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is crisp with a nicely dry finish. Overall, fresh this beer was really good but not necessarily a standout for the style. With some age on it, this is fantastic and one of my favorite wilde ales I have had the pleasure of drinking. Bottles are pricey but I might be heading back to the store tomorrow for a refill.

L- hazy copper good head and lace.
S- amazing citrus, tropical fruits, damp hay funk. Reminds me of fruit stipe gum in a barnyard.
T- citrus, green apple and peppery, sour funk lightly plays with hops and slight malt sweetness.
M- medium body, lush carbonation and a bit dry.
O- fantastic and so interesting.

This beer is unreal. Wonderful copper appearance. Tropical, citrus forward on the nose. Orange zest & massively juicy IPA, minimal funk and dry finish. Seek this out if you enjoy hoppy, barrel aged wild ales.

Huge thanks Miggs.

Poured into an oversized Tripel Karmeliet glass. Seems the perfect glass given the incredibly big, fluffy, frothy, creamy and pale-white head. The body is a subdued orange or copper color with a touch of haze but otherwise great clarity.

You can't stop the juiciness on this nose. It's like a freshly cut passion fruit with some navel orange peel and a slight peppery funk. Underlying sweet maltiness fills out the nose and offers some vanilla notes and caramel.

Ahhh, tasty. Again, the juiciness reigns. Very orange juice-like but with an earthy funk and a peppery zest. There are lemon peel notes that linger long after each sip. Throughout the taste has a floral and grassy taste.

Feel-wise this has bubbly carbonation, a thick medium-bodied mouthfeel and and a medley of zest and spice feel. Despite all this, there are still moments when it drinks more like orange juice than a thicker beer. The hops offer some mild bitterness at the finish that is somewhat overshadowed by the yeast presence.

This is an exceptional beer. It's a lot of fun to drink actually, as the tastes and feels are so varied and uniquely combined.

4.09/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a hazy honey color and is capped by a very impressive head; excellent retention and plenty of lacing action

Smell: A lot going on in the aroma, with the Brett floral funk, the vinous oak from the Chardonnay barrels and, of course, the piney hops

Taste: The juicy citrus and piney flavors underpin all of the other elements from the outset, with the vinous character, the oak and the funk all maneuvering their way into the foreground; after the swallow, the underlying malt adds some sweetness to the finish, as well

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A really interesting beer though I wonder whether the barrel treatment was a net positive or negative; part of me thinks that a simpler formula would make a better beer; still, Marble is a brewery that continues to impress

Thanks, sunkistxsudafed, for the opportunity

Most expensive IPA I've ever had. But after 5 or 6 bottles, I'm realizing It might be worth it!
Incredibly Floral, mild tartness form the brett, Great hop profile, very subtle oak. One of the most complex and well balanced IPA's I've ever had. If you get a chance, check this one out. You won't be disappointed!

this is one of, if not the single best brett ipas i have had. its a style thats coming into popularity, and its quickly becoming a style i seek out, so i was pumped to get to share a bottle of this one. its cloudy and big looking, under a tall white head its goldenrod body effervesces intensely. the nose is a perfect mix of fresh picked citrusy hops, juicy and ripe an drippy, and then the brett, which is funky and tart and has cleaned this thing up to a bone dry level. its a mouthwatering aroma, and the flavor is just as good. there has to be citra and maybe galaxy or something going on here, its such a grapefruit and lemon complexion from the hops, and the brett is really intense, but not overly granular or yeasty in terms of sediment and feel. not sure how they pulled this off to such an expert degree, i mean, i have always been a fan of marble and impressed with their stuff, but had no clue they made wild beer and that it was so far ahead of the rest of the pack. this might be the best brett ipa ive ever had, with perfectly high carbonation and a bone dry finish that just leaves me wanting more. hops come through amazingly and are well dosed and selected for the brett. where can i get more of this?

Pours a hazy, slightly orange golden color with a soapy white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of slight bit of funk and bright hops.

Tastes of the bright hops with a solid malt backbone and plenty of funk. Hops lead off with citrus notes along with some pine. Sweet malts add in with some caramel and toasted bread. This gives way to some fruitiness with apple and white grapes. Funky brett notes come toward the end with some spiciness as well. Finishes with some lingering spiciness and a bit of fruits.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is fairly tasty, but I feel like the wine barrels might be holding it back. Don't get me wrong, the wine barrels mix in pretty nicely, but I feel it would be better if it were more focused.
