Got a 750 of this off a trade of some surly and new glarus for ska and tninity!

Aroma: a mixture of funk and a tiny bit of citrus. very intriguing. I've never had a funky wit beer.

Appearance is cloudy like you'd expect. No head to speak of and barely carbonated.

Flavor: mildly sour at the start, kinda empty in the middle, but gushing with citrus,fruity yeast, cherry, a bit of brett funkyness in the finish. mouth waters for more instantly!

Mouthfeel; Mine was extremely under carbonated which I'm assuming wasn't the intention. Without carbonation it's rather light bodied and a little carbonation would really help this beer.

Overall-this is a fantastic beer for drinking on the porch on a 90 degree June day in Minnesota. The funkyness of the brett is strong in the nose, but is very much in the background in the nose.

This beer really works for me. I'd say it's the lawnmower of funk beers.

750 ml bottle, barrel TBB 106, bottle 1283 3/13. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a small fizzy white head that quickly goes to a small dusting.

The aroma is tart and funky with some brett, tropical fruits and flowers.

The flavor is lots of tart acidic sourness with some spices and a bit of iron. The mouthfeel is rather thin and watery with no carbonation.

Overall, an OK sour. Lots of acidic sourness, but very thin, watery, under-carbonated and simple.

Thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of tart, funky lemons with some funny Belgian yeast mixed in. The flavor is heavy on the brett. I get a lot of dry, leather components as some strong barnyard funk. There is also a little bit of lemon in the flavor and some light to medium tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours a hazed straw color with much effervescence. A modicum of head retention & lacing

S: Grassyness, sourness, lime zest

T: Follows the nose, lemongrass, white pepper, pears & light grapefruit notes up front. Lovely dryness, delicate spicyness ( Keffir? ) . Finishes tart, with lovely tropical & citrus fruit, plus a little white pepper

MF: Light bodied, delicate carbonation, dryness

Super drinkability, albeit bloody expensive. Could drink this all summer long , if someone else was buying
