hawthorne00 (2403) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2012
UPDATED: APR 21, 2012 Bottle. Hazy gold with a large off-white head that collapses but never disappears. Aroma is very bretty, with lemon, orange blossoms, melon, anise, cherries, pepper, prickly ash. Taste has some cherry sweetness, flowers, mild earthy tartness and peppery bitterness before a dry and bretty finish kicks in a fair bit earlier than Iíd like. Lingering floral and woody notes are there too. Thereís lots of good things here - like the potpourri at the very end - but the brett is overbearing and tedious. [3.4] Stoppered the bottle and tried the rest the next day. Things have mellowed a fair bit and the brett is much less intrusive, although still a bit excessive.

bottle 11/25/11. hazy golden color with a soapy white head. vinous aroma with a ton of strange goodies behind that.... concrete/minerals, bretty business, spicy, mustiness, wood, florals, pineapple, orange and mild pale maltiness. the flavor is equally as intriguing... round and fruity but with a mineral dryness. very well balanced. dry, crisp and refreshing. 8/4/8/4/16+

Bottle sent by 12many.
Strange, unique, intriguing. This is the first time Iíve ever encountered an aroma that smelled "cold." I know that sound odd, but itís cold in a way similar to menthol or mint. Aroma is also heavily yeasty and funky. The flavor and aroma, both of which are great, are vastly different from each other. Flavor is as complex, with heavy floral and citrus, brett funk, lots of juicy citrus hop flavor, all culminating in a very dry finish. This is easily one of the more unique beers Iíve had in a long time, but quite excellent. I donít really care if it technically fits the profile of a "saison." Iím looking forward to drinking my other bottle.

Idiosynkrasie (3711) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 15, 2012
750ml bottle. Hazy orangey amber colour with a small frothy white head. Intense brett aroma, accompanied by decent oak, spice and fruit notes. Taste is also ruled by brett, spices like coriander, clove, orange zest remain in background. Complex, with a variety of aromas, but for me with too much emphasize on the brett.

750ml bottle split with mcberko. Pours a hazy amber orange with a small white head. Flavour and aroma match - some barnyard funk, orange, coriander, white wine, lots of tropical fruits, Belgian yeast. Full bodied. Not a huge fan of this style, but I see why it is appreciated by many.

MadIndian (2365) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2012
Maybe the best Anchorage beer I ever had. A nice floral and sour aroma. Notes of corriander, ginger, cloves fruit. The finish is a peppery sour. I liked it.

Glouglouburp (5992) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2012
In short: A crazy amber wild ale (very wild) of great complexity. That simple. Superb.
How: Bottle 750ml, a few times. This bottle consumed 4 months after bottling, bought in a store and also received from TURDFERGUSON
The look: Cloudy amber body topped by a large off-white head with good retention
In long: Nose is bursting with musty brett over fresh apricots and freshly cut oak. For the wild beer lover this aroma is borderline hypnotizing. Taste is very wild/bretty with horse blanket and kind of other stuff synonymous with rustic-wild. A smooth body with soggy bready malts and soft cookies. Fresh apricots, some white grapes, fresh pineapples, fresh pine-tree, garden flowers. There is a very mild sourness, a moderate tannins presence and a medium piney/fruity bitterness with resinous undertones. But mostly the beer is just crazy wild. Wicked beer. I drank my two bottles and crave for more but itís sold out in Vermont so I donít what to do, Iím desperate, I whish I was at work right now, there is a Help button in the elevator.
