4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks to ahalloin for sharing this a few weeks back. Served in a snifter and reviewed from notes.
Pours a really nice bright golden-yellow with a fluffy white head and some good lacing. Clear beer with visible carbonation. The nose is really quite nice, though not quite as good as the Lente. Bright notes of citrus and lemon zest plus plenty of funk and light earth. The flavor is moderately fruity with some orange and green apple plus a good dose of lemon. Mild acidity and plenty of Brett-induced funk and earth. Crisp carbonation and a dry finish with a nice earthy funk throughout. Light acidity. Absolutely stunning.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
75cl Bottle at WWT. Gusher. Hazy golden orange, white head. Aroma is tart, funky, dank, dung. Flavour is sour, acid, dung, very funky, light fruity, more sour in the finish. Light bodied. Unpleasant and way too sour for my taste. Reading the other ratings I can only conclude that people are nuts, and I’m the only sane person in this world.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle supplied by myself. The pour’s deep hazy orange with a medium pillowy white head. Nice brett through the nose. Old cobweb-covered wood. A bit of marshmallow. Light white grape. Slightly brash. Notes of granny smith apple. The taste has similarly musty flavors. Like eating an attic. Rich brett with bright shocks of tart lemon. Key lime pie. Such expressive wild yeast. Nice floral finish. Mild creamy sweetness. Light body. Wonderful vitality. Moderate carbonation. Overall, fantastic.
