Bottle. Hazy gold with a big rocky white head. Aroma is citrus and earthy funk. Taste follows suit but the yeast has a very rubbery character. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. On the whole not bad but I think the Brett strain these guys use is not my cup of tea.

Dobre piwo dzikie ale nareszcie sie udalo jankesa. Piwo ma trwala niebywale i mocna piane. Morelowy kolor ze sporym zemgleniem, metnosc naprawde spora ale na dnie nie bylo ich widac. Zapach chmielu Galaxy powala w nozdrza. Piwo jest cudne w smaku, lekko kwaskowe troche limonkowe i grejfrutowe i cierlkawe tak jak lubie, zero slodu i cukrow. Polecam.

Prokroustis (685) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUL 30, 2014
Clear golden colour, big white head. Great yeasty, fresh and dusty hoppy aroma with wheat, toast, wood, apricot, a medicinal note. Really nice sour and bitter flavour with wet grass, apricot, toast, lemon, a herbal floral finish. Interesting and delicious.

pineypower (2492) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle from more backlog. Pours out a mostly clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is complex, nice funky notes, wood, some sourdough bread, light piney/citrus bitterness and some wet wood that intensifies as it warms. Taste is complex, lots of funky doughy, light tart notes, with a solid amount of bitterness that lingering along with some bandaid funk, light horse blanket. This one was really tasty.

Bomber from friends cellar. Dark amber and hazy with a small lasting head. Looks great. Musty sweet and sour with mango aroma. Puckering bretty mouthfeel with medium acidity. Meh. Ill stick to suerette.

FatPhil (9182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 19, 2014
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Cloudy pale orange. Lovely funky sour aroma. Orangy and apricot fruitiness. Smooth palate. Very fruity in the mouth. Alas this was the final pour from the bottle, so was way yeastier than I’d like. Not as crisp in the palate certainly. There was some odd herbal aspect to the aroma too. Interesting, wouldn’t mind trying some of the variations of this.

Tide (1697) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Draught at Fate Brewing. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, floral hops, yeast, earthy notes, ripe peach and grass. Bitter finish with hops, citrus, earthy notes and grass. Exquisite brew.

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle shared by David. Thanks. This was interesting. I really enjoyed the nose, but I felt like the flavor fell off a bit. Lots of lemon acidity. Nice bretty and hoppy balance in nose. A little overly dusty bretty with a biting acidity and medium bitter finish. Slightly muddled mouthfeel.

Bottle thanks to Nick. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with thick frothy white head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong citrus and funk. Thin mouthfeel with strong funk, light citrus, oak, and nice dry finish. Good
