Brandman (2660) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has some sour fruity bubblegum and grainy toast. Flavour is bit floury malt, bit peach schnapps on acid. Very different fruitness than your regular brew.

375 ml bottle. Hops: Centennial/Simcoe. 6.2%. 2013/Batch #2. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Hazy orange golden colour with a big frothy white head. Aroma: Yeast, mild funkiness, fruity hops, mild sweetness and malt. A balanced and nice aroma. The flavour is... wow! It’s very nice... sourness, sweetness, tropical fruits, funky yeast and floury malt. Tasty.

Bouteille 375ml de Geers #462, batch ou bouteille? Dorée-orangée, col blanc crémeux généreux. Arôme offre un bouquet mettant bien en avant ce profil distinct de brett, le tout sur de belles notes fruitées surtout le citra qui ici, brille par sa complexité. Je retoruve pas mal d’effluves houblonnées entre un fruité sympa et amérisant. Boisé reste en retrait mais je semble détecter un petit côté adouci oscillant sur la vanille, Palais est léger, houblonné prenant le dessus, sec du houblonnage à ru. Fruité surtout le citra ajoutant de belles notes tropicales entre mangue et ananas. Le tout se termine par un léger côté sec, houblonné noble-sec où se bousculent brett et houblons. Le côté boisé du chêne est discret et reste plus en toute fin de bouche ajoutant probablement ce palais sec. Le côté funk semble plus rond en fin de bouche probablement par le fruité du citra, de ce fait le côté aigre-brett reste modéré.

Habanero (3864) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2013
Bottled. Pours hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma of excotic fruits, graprfruit, peach and brett notes. Dry flavor that ends up tart and bitter. Light to medium bodied, watery to oily text. and average carb. A lovely complex brew.

A hoppy wild ale. Funky for sure. Hoppy in the nose. And the bitterness seems to modulate with the Brett into some medicine like flavor. Totally artisanal and unique, I would recommend for the occasional quaff.

Bottle pour. Crooked Stave Hop Savant. A super funky IPA type brew with some brett and oak age to it. It reminds me of a milder version of Prairie Merica! Cheers!

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle to glass. Pours a murky golden orange color with a fizzy white head and a decent amount of yeast sediment. Aroma is a very mild acetic acid, with much more dry wood/oak shining through. Flavor has a bit more sour, but certainly the dry woody notes are still present. Dry on the palate with a lingering earthy woody finish. Pretty solid, but I’d prefer more sour and less wild.

Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Smells very yeasty, brett, hay. Has a very dryness about it, very eleasticy, Band-Aid flavor. fruity, interesting. . . slight citrus. Overall, it’s just a bit to bretty and elasticy for me. Okay.
