This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow color with a slim finger’s worth of white foamy head. Dissipates within less than thirty seconds and leaves a light stringy lacing. The smell starts off with a sharp tangy to slightly sour lemon and orange rind. Light citrus pulp enters in nicely and adds a decent level of sour. The Brett is there and fairly tame. The taste was sweet to bitter to tangy/sour. A slightly tangy orange juice aftertaste leads to a quick wet citrus finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sipping quality about it. Carbonation seemed good for an American Wild Ale and hits my tongue sour to semi-tangy. Overall, though the Brett is tame, I think I liked it more for me. Might have again.

I was just at the Brewery to pick up a couple of cases of Mastermind they canned. I haven't tasted Mastermind before I tried the their mainstay Fiddlehead IPA and the Brett on the Dance Floor. After I got my case I went back in to get a taste of the Dance Floor. I really couldn't tell much difference between the Dance Floor and the regular IPA. I was expected more flavor from the Brett yeast. The beer wasn't bad. However, it wasn't enough for me to buy a growler after I just bought my 3 cases of Mastermind (very nice beer!!) or to travel the 2.5 hour trip I just did just to get the Brett. The beer was smooth and pleasant though.
