JBPortland (970) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 25, 2015
750ml bottle pours toasted cloudy orange with a finger of head. Nose is full of funky floral fruit, juicy tartness, pinot noir notes, and damp wood. Tast has crisp tartness with balanced acidity, funky wet wood, some yeast spice, dark berry, lots of enveloping vinous red grape and wine flavors. Finish is dry, a touch prickly, tart citrus fruit, wet wood, toast, grape, floral fruit and berry, some yeast spice. Wonderful.

3fourths (8295) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle batch 4, July 2014. Lightly hazed amber with a fine white head. Floral and fruity nose is chardonnay, grapefruit juice, brett, tropical bubble gum, glazed pastries, salt / minerals. Medium body, sweet, juicy, fruity, acidic and tart with a drying tannic and malic finish. Fun nose, vibrant and bright and quenching in the mouth, but more sour and acidic than I’d prefer.

Clownoisseur (289) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle pours a vibrant golden-straw color, lively white head that fades into a ring with some spotty lacing. Nice carbonation racing up the glass. Aroma is pretty pungent with a farmhouse yeast carrying spice, oak, earth, light floral hops and a big soapy Brett sting. Taste mimics the nose, the big Brett leading the way...light spice over funky hay...and moving into some vinous notes as well. Musty grape, grapefruit, hints of grass/herbs meld into a nice and dry finish. Lots of Brett funk on this one...much to my liking!

kbudd19 (750) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle. Batch 3, July 2014. Cloudy orange copper colour with light white head. Aroma is citrus brett funk, oak, and vinous white grapes. Taste is loads of citrus, white grapes, orange peal, and oak, finishes semi dry, with a medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Very flavourful stuff, extremely refreshing, wow.

SlovakSniper (3387) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2014 Batch 3. Juillet 2014. Robe dorée embrouillée. Belle tête et dentelle indomptée. Au nez, les parfums de cuir, de houblons fruités, de ferme et de bois imbibé de vin sont assaisonnés délicatement par un jeu intelligent d’épices. Quelle fusion agréable! Sur les papilles, le vin est vaillant et les brettanomyces cherchent à cacher toute montée fruitée. En fait, tout est très campagnard, très vineux et très sauvage. C’est bon mais ça manque un brin de wow. En bouche, le liquide huileux n’est pas très actif. J’aurais aimé une action plus soutenue des bulles. Cela aurait élevé d’un cran la buvabilité. En finale, la combinaison des bretts et de l’action du fût façonnent une adéquate sécheresse. Bonne Saison dans une bouteille trop dispendieuse.
