Brilliant, clear gold with a silken head. Aroma is a bit funky, but only slightly like apples fallen off the tree and nestled in the grass for a couple days. Malt seems German, clean pilsner dough. Feel is medium lightly and extra smooth. Flavor seems especially bright for a lager with various but probounced and independent flavors that stand on its own. Rather than than getting muddled together and last i taste the smoothness of the an earthy, minty hop. Layered on top I get some floral pear and the yeast shines. A bit of caramel sweetness is whisked away by clean pils flavor.

Described as a "rustic gypsy lager". I went into it thinking, "what does that even mean?" Come to find that "rustic gyspy lager" is a fitting description. Not exactly sure how. Musty and deeply spiced, smooth yet multi-faceted. A really enjoyable lager!

A wild lager. A great beer. Unlike any other. Blown away

Others talk about a lack of Brett character. They are just overload ingredient junkies.

This beer has purpose. This beer clearly, at least to me, shows that wild yeast has just as much place in lagers as it dies ales, and the malts and hop choice are thoughtful

22 oz. growler pour into a hefeweizen glass, unknown brewing date but growler filled on Sat., 05/31/2014 and drank at several points over the past two days

A: 3/3 - golden-orange coloration; hazy (cannot read or see through); initial one finger head settled into a thin glass lacing; tight white bubbles pouring off the bottom of the glass

S: 9/12 - lots of lemon, apricot and peach meets gentle Brett barnyard complexity; slight spicy Styrian Golding character bounces off the fruitiness; little alcohol notes

T: 16/20 - on the front of the tongue, there is a gentle fruitiness that develops into more Brett flavors - slightly tart, musky and refreshing; slight pils malt with little Styrian Golding character; finishes dry and inviting

M: 4/5 - light-to-moderate body; appropriately high carbonation; high drinkability

O: 8/10 - interesting admixture of Brett and Styrian Goldings; unfortunately, other than the high drinkability and mild pils qualities, I don't get much lager character (and would guess that the primary fermenter is a Sacch yeast strain); definitely worth a try and has potential to be a total Summer crusher

TOTAL - 40/50

From 01/18/14 notes. Had a 16 oz. pour of this on tap at The Jeffrey in NYC.

a - Pours a murky, orange amber color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of fruity malts, citrus hops, pale malts, earthy notes, light floral notes, grains, and bready malts.

t - Tastes of citrus, fruity malts, pale malts, grain, bread, wheat, earthy notes, floral hops, dirt, light must. I like the taste a little bit better than the nose.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Easy to drink, very drinkable.

o - Overall a very nice pale ale. I got no brett from it personally; if I didn't see it listed as having brett on BA I wouldn't have none otherwise. Easy to drink, worth checking out if you like lagers.

My wife picked me up a 32 oz. growler of this at the brewery a few days ago. I called em and was told this is a "Brett pale lager" hmmm interesting and confusing all at once

Anyway this one pours clouded dull darker yellowy amber. Gauzy eggshell head, that leaves nice looking looser fields of sticky stuff all the way to the top of the class.

Earthy ripe fruit nose, with a hint of a musty note.

Fruity, earthy, again a hint of must and mostly flavorful. Subtle brett presence adding to the intrigue and complexity. Dry finish

Easy drinking and quite enjoyable.

Peekskill has turned out a non ending series of great beer and this one is no exception
