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.

On tap at Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend. Hazy golden with a white head. Sour peaty aroma with notes of sour berries and farmyard. Strange and simply lovely mixture of the sour funky stuff and the smoky, peaty stuff. Never tried a beer like this before, but I certainly hope I will later. Moderate sweet with a quite noticable acidity and lasting a aftertaste. Oooh, delicious!

Draught @ TCBW 2015

Pours yellowish orange with a small head. Really interesting aroma with loads of bretta, peat, wood, farmyard, earthy notes, wood and yeast. Taste is stingy, sourish and a bit messy with loads of bretta, peat, wood, farmyard and yeast. Finish is smooth, sweetish and slightly sour with loads of peat and hints of bretta. Interesting stuff. Quite unique.

Draught @ Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend 2015
Aroma has nice peaty tones, some citrus and grapefruit. Flavour is really, really tart. Citrus juice and some mellow peaty tones. The acidicness hurts the drinkability so bad. And the aroma and flavour are really far from each other. Not really sure what to say about this; drinking in quantities is impossible but I seem to enjoy every sip anyway.

Tap@tcbw15. Yellow hazy. Whoa, this is interesting. Really srrong peat, barnyard horsey pale malty nose. Citrus. Tart quite acidoc actually. Dry. Horsey burps, peaty flavour. This is interesting pretty exactly what the label promises.

Hermod (3739) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Tap@ TCBW2015. Cloudy golden, thin white head. Brett and peat, just as the label says. Quite the combo. And it works. Flavor very similar, nice soury berry notes as well. Pleasant surprise.

(bottle - 750 ml) Cloudy gold with a puffy white head. Sour Brett and very tart notes in the aroma. A good whiff of peat. Flavor is sour peaty Brett with some light sweetness from the barrels. Incredibly different and weirdly good.

Ernest (6514) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Draft at Sergio’s, Louisville KY. Head is initially huge, creamy/rocky, off-white, fully lasting. Body is hazy medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), lightly to moderately yeasty (horseblanket, barnyard), with notes of Islay malt whisky (iodine, peat, etc.), manure, apple skin, band-aid, peach. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. One of the most fucked up beers I’ve ever had, but somehow it works. Equal parts Islay whiskey and lambic, with a healthy dose of WTF??? And yet it’s not the train wreck I expected (I got a small taste and then ordered an entire glass, and would gladly drink another). Really well balanced and aromatically bizarre.

Hazy copper with a thin fast-dissipating head. Big peaty and peppery nose with a sharp earthy acidity. Surprisingly smooth flavor with a tart peppery smokey sour tone. Dry yet puckering fruity and peat filled finish.

Un amalgame vraiment intéressant de boucane intense et d’acide lactique. Les brett se manifestent aussi, survoltant.
