This hoppy amber beer was brewed with Belgian yeast. A spicy/fruity aroma is balanced by a big hop backbone. Including two dry hop additions. This beer was then conditioned with the addition of brettanomyces, a wild yeast that lends a distinct character to the beer. Unfiltered.

BCTC 2010, ratebeer tent. light amber pour, pretty light aroma with minor glimpses of sour/tartness peaking out. flavor was also pretty light. to its defense it had some tough company at the tent (de cam, hannsens, lost abbey, the jaspers, etc) ok

Draft. Pours a an orange peachy copper body with a white head. Floral bretty tones with some light cherries. Spicy with a hint of pepper and bretty leather tones round this out. A mild warming with a drying finish. Nice.

750mL shared by MicroGrog, thanks Adam. This was pretty late in the night at Cooperstown and right after the blueberry tasting, so I was ready for more good beer. This however, did not fit the bill. Aroma was plastic, apple, and mineral. Flavor was astringent sweet malts and garbage. Hoppy brett beers do not do it for me.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 Rerating this, again from BCTC, possibly again from Adam, after the fest, back at the campsite. Pours a hazy orange with an infected looking white head. Ginger, tart lemon and spice. Lots of tannic tartness and old malt. Interesting to me at least that a year later I had it again and took notes again, and scored it only .1 lower.

Original rating: Can’t recall who brought this, but it was shared at BCTC. Pours a light brown with a thin white head. Sweet candy notes, hints of berries. Almost a hint of funk and brett.
