Mep3222 (544) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Aroma is a bit sweet, little sour and a bit of funk. Slight peppery Cabernet smell as well. Taste is a tad more on the sweet side than sour, but some great sour flavors as well. Very different from salvation, but in a great way. Not too pucker sour, but enough to balance the sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap the Strong Ale Festival. Cloudy yellow color. Nice sourness. Easy to drink. Frothy off-white tap head. Not sweet or dry. Excellent. Some brett phenolics in the aroma.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Draught. Beautiful oak and funk nose, light pineapple, rubber brett character, peach, and background floral notes. Bright orange with a thin head and beautiful lacing. Wonderful depth of flavors. Tinges of rubbery brett through everything. Fruity, loads of pineapple and citrus. Totally balanced. Minor sweet component. Dry palate with spicy finish.

Argentine (14) - Walla Walla, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Avery tap room 9/22/09. Aroma; faint floral, great aroma slight smell of freshly opened plastic toys/peachy floral perfume. Taste; Oh my god! sweet tarts, beautiful brett provides sensation like licking 9 volt, fizzy Sprite soda, sour lime. (normally brett is labeled as horsey but this is froggy/pond scum.)

Aubrey (3444) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2008
2008 Strong Ale Fest (Boulder, CO): This beer may have had a milder personality than many of the other "big" beers in attendance, but it still stood out among the ones I tried. Malts were pleasant and bready. Yeast provided some really nice flavors, esters and aromas (subtle fruit). Slight sourness added some zing. Background notes of wood, earth and wine. Pleasurable to drink. I hope to have it again someday.

Indra (2641) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Draft at the brewery during GABF week. Sweet, fruity aroma with some nice brett, some melon and oak along with touches of honey and pear. Hazy peach-golden color, with a lasting, creamy head. Interesting profile here, the Cabernet Sauvignon barrel aging apparent along with plenty of brett character, lending a nice tartness, sourness and citric fruitiness, the sweetness largely overtaken by these aspects, some lingering woody notes as well. Really quite tasty. Sharp, effervescent palate, body is nicely full. Good stuff!
