Poured in to a tulip. Frothy, dense, white head. Clear, golden colored body. 1.5 finger head.

Aroma was full of Brett. Lots of barnyard funk, slight leather, Citrusy hops. Malty and a bit bready.

Taste was excellent. Big citrus and floral hop flavor upfront. Bready and a bit malty. Finished with a floral hop bitterness and solid notes of brett. Leathery and funky.

Medium/light body, high carbonation and a crisp/dry finish.

Solid beer. Hops really come through but the brett adds a great complexity.

A - Hazy golden-orange with a big finger of off-white head. Fades fairly slowly.

S - Sweet grainy and wheat malts, grapefruit, tropical, pine, floral, and grassy hops, funky brett, tart green fruits.

T - Sweet grainy and wheat malts, grapefruit, orange, citrus, pine, grassy, and floral hops, some smooth bitterness, tart green fruits, funky Brett.

M - Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Smooth with a funky, tart, and lightly bitter finish.

D - Interesting wild ale. I like the balance of funk and hop character.

A - Pours a cloudy lighter orange with a huge cream-colored head. This gusher has some good retention once it settles down.

S - Brett and hoppy grass, pine and citrus. Smells heavenly.

T - Brett, buttery wood, earthy and slightly herbal.

D - Tons of carbonation with a light body.

O - Hopped up and tons of Brett. Tastes wasn't quite what it once was or what the nose suggests, but the Brett is rockin.
