4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From 750. Pours a deep amber orange with wispy off-white head. Nose is Brett, with light fruit undertones and a floral bouquet, like walking through a flower garden. Flavor starts sour and ends dry. In the foreground is more Brett, with wine in the background and light fruits underneath. Palate is wonderfully carbonated to let all the flavors dance together. Excellent.

NEBF I was very pleasantly surprised by this one. A wild yeast beer without the added fruit that one finds in Lindemans. It is nevertheless, quite lambic-like, sour, yeasty with good fruit notes. Very nice.

2009 Vintage. pours a clear saturated golden, with a small white lace. Lovely nose, fruity some lactic-caprylic notes. Nice sourness bite, fruity, the oak is showing out nicely, in balance, some residual sweetness but alcohol very well hidden for 9,5%. Very good funky beer

Cloudy amber pour. Acidic aroma similar to cider vinegar, note of orange zest. A midly sweet flavour coasts as it finishies with a warm note.

A nice yeast aroma mixed with a tart fruitiness. There is subtle oak and wine scent that also appears in the flavor. The interlude is complex. A nice dryness develops. It affects the palate but not harshly. I really enjoyed this beverage.

A rather interesting offering from Allagash. Very improvisational, and I canít quite put my finger on whatís going on here. Delicious aftertaste, tart, fruity and sour. Pucker worthy, almost.
Poured draft, a beautiful bronze crimson into a tulip glass. Worth savoring.

Bottle from Minderbinder, thanks a lot. Pour is hazy orange with white head. Aroma is very fruity, tropical fruits mixted with citrus, brett, peppery. Taste is fruity, light caramel, brett, oak. Light body and medium carb. Pretty good stuff!

Alla spina. Birra di stampo belga arrichita con fermantazione con brettanomices. Di difficile catalogazione.

Aroma is of yeast, pineapples, and some citrus.
Flavor has a sweet beginning with a bitter, sour ending. Tastes very yeasty with lots of citrus.
Medium mouthfeel with light carbonation.
Not a bad beer, but not my style!
