2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
19/VII/15 - 75cl bottle @ Velootje (Gent) - BB (or bottled?): IX/2010 (2015-945) Thanks to Alengrin for sharing the bottle!
Clear orange beer, creamy yellowish head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: bit oxidized, malty, some orange peel, very aged. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: soft sourish start, bit lemony, cardboard, oxidized. Aftertaste: lemony touch, bitter, bit dusty, funky. Looks like that brett didn’t get a chance to do much over the years. Pasteurised? No fermentable sugars left? Who shall tell...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gorgeous caramel color, slightest hint of sour yeast on the nose. Palate is slightly sour lemon, evolving into pear, hints of caramel and toasted oak underneath. Long finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours is cloudy dark orange red, fizzy thin white head, gone quickly. Nose is raspberry, oak, brett funk. Taste brings raisins, tart cherry, more oak, hints of vanilla/caramel. Reasonably sweet with mild tartness. Quite nice, and really complex, but I’d prefer more sour and less oak. But that is just personal preference--it is beautifully executed.
