So priveleged to be only the second person to review this but I would expect nothing less from The Local Miami where it was served in a Sixpoint Resin snifter.
A- Pours a semi-hazy medium golden color with a 1/4 inch white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and thin surface foam.
S- Wonderful tropical fruit aroma from the hops. Sharp and slightly funky due to the Brett but it's not overly apparent.
T- The tropical fruit gushes out of the flavor with reckless abandon. Notes of lemon, pineapple, orange and a bit of grapefruit. Totally astounding. The bitterness is exactly on point with the malts being minimal yet providing the perfect amount of balance.
M- Snappy yet light. Medium carbonation and a lightish body.
O- Nearly seamless melding of IPA and Saison-like Belgian. Sublime combo of hop funk and Brett funk. Se magnifique.

Hops and Brettanomyces often appear in beer together, but Evil Twin's Femme Fatale is an exercise in making the pair sing two-part harmony. An abundance of Citra hops co-mingle with the funk in this 100% Brett-fermented IPA, to rousing success. Femme Fatale (La Fleur) is a special edition of the beer, brewed with the addition of dried flowers. We expect this to enhance the hops' bouquet of floral aroma to the nth degree."
Had this one at Brewvival 2013! Poured by Jeppe himself! Served from tap into a Brewvival sample shaker. Poured golden yellow with a two finger off-white head that subsided to a half finger very slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, fruit, funk, earth, earth hop, and flowers. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, earth hop, citrus hop, citrus, funk, and elderflowers. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. I really like the incorporation of the flowers in this one. I have had the base brew quite awhile back and enjoyed it, so I was hoping the flower notes would help to tie some of the Brett into the rest of the brew. It did this wonderfully in my opinion. The flower note left a nice refreshing feel to the palate and made your palate for the next sip. I hope that more brewers give this a shot in the future as I was quite impressed with my first IPA with flowers added. Tick.
