Notes / Commercial Description:
To take up the challenge and make a 100% true Brett IPA with Yuzu fruit can very easily become a fatal attraction for the Brewmaster. Once you get acquainted with the Yuzu fruits irresistible and seductive personality, along with Bretts overpowering, alluring and very charming nature, it will ensnare you and drive you mad obsessing over how exactly you can create the perfect desirable tangy, funky, crisp, tart flavor in ya mouth.

This beer is so amazingly good. Probably should’ve rated a 5.0, but my snooter doesn’t work so good. Appearance is a huge, thick, off-white, foamy head, lace, and a clear gold color with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is yeast, lemon, white pepper, grain. Flavor is like aroma, has pronounced carbonic tang, that with the other qualities, just right hops and the touch of Brett, make this sooo good. Palate is spot on. One helluva beer!

A: in a tulip, pale gold body with a slight haze, capped by a couple of thick fingers of white head; a filmy cap persisted all the way down, leaving sparse motes behind

S: two aromas will draw your attention immediately, as I'm sure was intended: the funky "wet horse blanket" and "barnyard" funk of the brettanomyces, and the tart and tangy fruit of the yuzu, which reminded me of grapefruits and limes

T: a terrific taste combination, not completely unlike their Femme Fatale Brett, but with much richer fruit flavors, owing to the yuzu fruit. The fruits and malt blend seamlessly, bringing all sorts of tropical and citrus fruits to mind - grapefruit, lime, and orange, and maybe even some something a bit more sweet, perhaps tangerine and un-ripened mango. Meanwhile, the brett works its magic, imparting dusky, dank, and earthy flavors, rounding out the tart and juicy components with a profound rustic, barnyard character.

M: crisp and juicy, medium-to-light body; ample, brisk carbonation; slightly tart and bitter all at once, with a great finishing aftertaste that will definitely leave you wanting more - and at a modest 6% abv, there's no reason not to indulge.

O: one of my favorite brett IPAs - just does a tremendous job of marrying flavors that complement each other exceptionally well. If you like tangy, barnyard IPAs, this is a must-have. If you aren't sure if you like tangy, barnyard IPAs, this is a great beer to try.

Got a pour of this funky oddity of a beer at the Old Toad, in Rochester, NY.

Pours a light orange, bit of gold. Very, very hazy. Nice 2 finger head, the beer laces very strongly down the glass throughout my entire time drinking it. Very beautiful.

Lots of citrus in here. I don't know what yuzu tastes like on it's own- but I assume it figures strongly into the flavor. I smell and taste mango, passionfruit, orange, grapefruit, and a bit of welcome mustiness that is derived from the use of brett. Gives it a slight tart twang at the end of each sip. A bit grassy, too. I bet if you aged this beer, the citrus flavors would go away and the musty twang would come to forefront. As it is, I like the balance of flavors now, fresh. The funk is there, but nicely restrained. Low bitterness, just waves of tropical flavor.

Light, crisp mouthfeel.

Wonderful beer from one of my favorite breweries.

Good banana smell, not overpowering. Good taste like an orange that isnt quite juicy enough
