A bizarre concept for a beer. I was skeptical... it could have easily been a trainwreck, but it was actually great. There is a fairly subtle smoke flavor and aroma from the peated malt and the scotch barrels. In the forefront is there is mainly sour and funk flavors. All 3 beers have strong flavors, and they combine very well without drowning each other out. Hard to believe this isn’t Belgian. A very impressive and innovative beer.

Bottle from Denman Wine and Spirits, Vancouver
Cloudy bright golden color. Weird aroma, smoke and citrusy fruits, acidic. The mouthfeel is very carbonated, rather dry, lemony, with an interesting peaty side.
Smoked lemon!
Very interesting.

375mL bottle, pours an opaque cloudy golden orange with loads of sediment and a small white head. Nose is heavy on the smoke and brett, with the smoke above everything else, followed by farty bretty funk. Flavour works surprisingly well, with lots of funk, citrusy tartness and subdued smoke. Medium acidity and aggressive tartness on the finish. Works surprisingly well. Despite the slightly off-putting noise, it tastes very good. Enjoyable stuff.

Bottle shared at Scopey’s Harvest Vertical, as ’Birrificio del Ducato Brett Peat Daydream’. Hazy orange, opaque, foamy off-white head. Aroma has some cow pat and farmyard, peaty, mango and citrus, fabric plasters, woody. The poo vibe dies down over time. Body is light, tingly carbonation, a bit frothy. Taste is peaty, smoke, boiled sweets, citrus, fabric plasters, plastic, acidic finish. More peaty than it is bretty at the moment. Maybe better in 2 years’ time when there is more interesting brett character. (3.4)

daje (3999) - NORWAY - JUL 3, 2016
On tap at Cafe Sara, november 13th 2015. Orange body with a tiny white head. Aroma is leathery with peat and sour berries - strange. Taste is fruity, oak, horseblanket, mild smoky with a sour citric edge. Kind of a strange brew, which gives itself given the blend, but it actually works quite well.

Keg at the Three Johns, Angel. It pours a slightly hazed golden color with a small white head. Aroma is tangy smoked with notes of lemon peel and band aid, seaweed and ashes. Taste is also tangy acidic with a dry smoked finish. More notes of lemon peel, band aid and ashes. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, ok

Scopey’s grand vertical. Thanks to Dan. Very hazy gold beer, thin pale cream colour head. Palate is light and dry with decent carbonation. Sharp acid start, lemon and vinegar. Some other things going on but who cares. Daydream? More like a burning nightmare! Fuck me this is a stinker. Should keep Paul’s drains clear for a few weeks I suppose.

Bottle shared at Scopey place birthday tasting. Big thanks to Daniel for this one. . A clouded. Yellow straw coloured pour with a lasting loose white head. Aroma is huge tangy peat, smoked malts, phenolic medicinal, meaty. Flavour is composed of tangy acidic meaty, phenolic meaty, rubber, lemon. Palate is tangy acidic, highish carbonation. Huge smoked malts. Crazy bustard of a beer.

Leighton (18525) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle shared in East Croydon - many cheers to Danny Boy. Pours hazy gold with a creamy, white head. Smokey aroma with lemony undertones, with just hints of funk. Quite acidic, fairly dry, lemony, with some dry band-AIDS, hard grassy bitterness. Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation. Finishes with rubbery peat, more harsh grassy bitterness, acidic lemon bite, more band-aid. Novel, but not hugely drinkable.

Bottle, big thanks to Dan. It pours cloudy pale golden - orange with a thick white head. The aroma is earthy, funky, musty, dirt, farmyard, manure, peat, medicinal action, whisky, dirt and muck. The taste is crisp, tart, sour lemon sherbet, grapefruit, medicinal, some bright acidity, barnyard, gooseberry, smoked peat and dirt with a sour lemon finish. Medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. Pretty freakin odd, but actually ok.
