Hazy orange with some copper highlights and big wisps of lacing from a head that doesn't fade. Notes of lemon, citrus rinds, funky stuff and bright tropical mango. Higher carbonation with a light body and a dry finish. This is my review fresh. It's about 2.5 months in the bottle and drinking great. Nice and different twist on a pale ale. I plan to revisit next summer with a year age to see how it changes.

Updating: drank one 4/10/16 with about 10 months on it. Super hazy apricot color, hazier than I recall. Taste notes changed to more of a stone fruit, light pepper, brine and orange. Definitely different and remarkable. Mouthfeel was less carbonated, still light and refreshing with a creamier body and still very dry. Overall I think it improved with age, the funk dropped out of it.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Hazy bright orange. Big white head. Very tropical aroma. Tropical hops and brett. Tastes equally tropical. Brett cuts the sweet aspect with leaves a little bitterness and a dry finish. Medium light body. High carbonation. I like that this isn't very bitter, Brett complements the tropical flavors nicely.

Great rendition of a pale ale. Since the brett flavors fall into a citrus range its tough to tell what comes from yeast and what comes from the hops, but there is definitely a noticeable tropical fruit element. Nose was great but slightly muted (I may have served too cold). Tons of yeast in it though, pour carefully.

Wow. I had this out of a year-old bottle and it has really improved with time. While excellent fresh, this aged version blew me away. A top 5 Brett beer, up there with Arctic Saison. I hope they bottle this again soon.
