This beer started out as "el Diablo", a Belgian Golden Ale aged on oak chips and lightly spiced with bitter orange peel and coriander, but is now transformed thanks to 6 months of bottle conditioning with 3 strains of wild Brettanomyces yeast.

From notes. Tasted on 3/16/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle that I shared at our epic Bottleworks tasting with Curtis, Jedi, and crews from Knoxville and Nashville. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head that leaves average lace. The nose is orange peel, tons of spices, lavender, cardamom, nice bread malt, and light funk. The flavor is dry, funky, and full of the same spices from the nose with a very nice orange peel note. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long funky, spices, and touch of vanilla finish.

Bottle at a recent Seattle tasting.

Nose of peach puree and orange peel. Hint of marichino cherry. Citrus peel and brett flavor, surprisingly sweet but gets away with it. Tastes less strong that it is. I quite like this beer. One of the better beers of the night--despite a VERY impressive lineup.

mcberko (14396) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of oak, dried fruits, some coriander, and a touch of brett. Flavour brings out lots of fruity notes, oak, oranges, and light spiciness. Highly carbonated and medium complexity. Interesting beer - not the most complex, but unique flavours.

750 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with asmall off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice tart character, fruity, dry Brett notes, wood, decent spicy character. The Brett definitely exerts itself with the dry funk throughout. Still very good after some time.
