Beerenberger (1373) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Thanks to Sammy for the enlightenment- Apricots/peaches/tropical fruit dominate from the first sniff wafting from a hazy, glowing peach hued pour. A thin, non-lasting white head quickly forms a white ring and provides modest lacing. The palate is similar to the nose - tropical fruit, peaches, a bit of Brett, and rather dry satisfying finish. A delightfully deligate sourness is present but not one that particularly puckers. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable and well crafted sour/wild ale that stimulates while satisfying one’s thirst

jredmond (5247) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle at Paul’s May 2014 tasting. Pours an orange body with white lacing. Aroma is bretty peach character up front followed by some bright citrus/tropic fruit notes. Mouthfeel is medium with bright carbonation and notes of dank, funky hops, pineapple, melon, peach and brett.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
2014-05-19. Lightly hazy dark orange body with a modest beige head. 3+ Aroma is quite nice, with tons of oak up front that eventually blows off after a bit releasing some lovely orange citrus and funk, lemon notes as it warms. Flavour is surprisingly citrusy, sweet orange up front, moderate oak and funk throughout. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft moderate carbonation. surprisingly nice. I’d prefer less oak and more funky citrus for my own tastes but it is pretty nice as is. Bottle from the brewery, Toronto

Marheb (1963) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
La pêche, l’abricot, la mangue et les houblons citriques et tropicaux s’ebattent dans le brett lambicus fermier, cuiré et fruité. Buvabilité animale.

PhillyCraft (3128) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours orange with white ring of head and dct amount of lace. Smell is citra pineapple, pine, brett, and peach. Flavor is most of the same with the additional presence of mosaic hop coming through...dank blueberry pine on top of the brett. Well carbonated.
