Appearance: Arrives with an amber verging on golden color and is capped by a sturdy head that leaves some shards behind

Smell: Tropical fruit tones and a touch of Brett funk.

Taste: Light bready malts support the peach and passion fruit fruit flavors; the Brett builds, after the swallow, to complement the fruit; the finish is relatively dry

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with crisp carbonation

Overall: I like the balance here between the Brett and the tropical fruit

Pours a light copper color. This beer is super live and yielded a head well above 2 fingers. The nose had citrusy hops and also something earthy. The flavor had a refreshing and mild tartness.

-can to duvel chalice.

A: A monstrous 2+ finger solid dull white foamy head rests above a lightly tarnished orange colored body of generally good clarity. A fast paced glass consuming effervesce fills the vessel with excitement. Soapy large void pockets line vessel with a weakly holding soapy patch lacing.

S: Sweet lemony grapefruit, fresh oranges.

T: Crisp floral orange for flavor, a zesty bold grapefruit bite with a good dose of citrus hops comes with a light musky offering of yeast, bready, dry with some barn wood and caramelized orange malting. Very dry fruit yeast finish.

M: Crisp very tight mouthful, medium full body, lightly creamy texture, toasty bread warmth on the swallow.

O: Drinks like a belgian pale, nice touch of sour funk citrus from the yeast, the brett increases towards the end of the drink, dry and funky. very good overall.

I feel this was an older can, no dates that I could find. Would love to revisit a fresh one

Round Guys Brewery "Fear Of A Brett Planet"
12 oz. can, no freshness dating

I was fairly surprised when I poured this beer as it was a mainly-clear deep amber/almost-copper beneath a full head of frothy off-white. I was expecting something golden, but the nose was even more surprising! HOPS! Citrusy (grapefruit as well as other tropical fruits), gently piney, resinous, slightly earthy - all over a decidedly caramelish malt base. Very odd for a Brett beer, although I guess you could argue that one of the original Brett beers, Orval, has some hops to it. Onward to the flavor... Very much as the nose suggests, but there is a bit of Brett in there as well, leathery and slightly metallic, with a bit of wet straw. I'm not sure where I stand on this, but there are no faults, and as you progress through the glass the tropical fruitiness and Brett notes meld quite nicely. Additionaly, as far as I know, it's pretty original, so points for that. Enjoyable start to finish, worth tryin' for sure!
