Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours an almost clear golden with a dense and lacing off-white head. Bretty aroma with quite some citrusy hops up front. Medium body, sweet fruitiness, rather yeasty but also a less than pleasant medicinal touch. A distinct hoppiness. 271213

Sweet trade bonus beer courtesy of adnielsen. The bottle pours with a clear deep gold body that supports a bright white head. The aroma offers up apricot, peach and mango like fruitiness as well as some lime citrus tartness, acidity and yeastiness. The taste begins with a mix of sweet mango and peach and then it quickly gets into citrus tartness and acidic lime like notes. I like how the acidity doesn’t dominate here but the malts and hops are more forward.

Bottle from Gurd at Gurd’s bottle tasting evening. Very pleasant experience. To start with it’s an excellent IPA, but the nudges of Brett add an extra layer of interest. Nice mingling of notes. Liked.

Aroma of is full on bubble with sweetness and maybe a hint of orange from the citra hops. Opaque, hazy gold with white head and good lacing. Taste is hoppy bitter meets sour with some drying oak influence. Great balance. Great beer.

Yorker (993) - Herning, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy yellow with some sediment and a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are brett, pepper, citrus, and floral – with a dry finish.

Similar to what Prairie Ales produce, more of very funky stuff with hops. Enjoyable and similar rating, though not my regular cup of tea. Thanks Jason B.

Bottle. Hopped with Galaxy. Pours hazy golden colored with a everlasting egg white head. Aromas of brett, wood, tropical fruit, pineapple, grapefruit and earthy notes. Dry, salty and bitter flavor. Great brew..

Brandman (1992) - 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.

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2013
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.
