wedgie9 (2513) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2014
From the 2012 Cellar Reserve
Tasted on 1/3/14 from a waxed and capped 375mL bottle, big thanks to adnielsen for being a great trustee. Pours hazy orange/golden with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average, sticky lace. The nose is super sour and funky/earthy with a bunch of citrus and white wine vinegar, and a very unique tropical and citrus hops aroma. The flavor is almost exactly as the nose would have suggested, with a bit more caramel malt and vanilla barrel character, but the same sour citrus, white wine vinegar, and tropical fruit hops. The body is medium with some nice barrel tannin, lively, nearly sparkling, carbonation, and a long sour citrus and tropical hops finish. This beer is really great, the only beers close I’ve ever had were Cuvee des Champions and Le Terroir, but I find this to be a bit more balanced than both.

Le brett d’Or very soft light gold. Lemoney, oaky and tart aroma. Beautiful soft and smooth body. Nice sour acidic lemon on a wheaty body. Really nice fruity aftertaste. 3.7-8

yngwie (15606) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle. A lightly hazy golden beer topped by a small, dense, white head. The aroma is sure funky, with some lemon and barnyard, a touch of lime and berries, some cellar and a faint cardboard-ish touch. Rather vinous, white wine style. Gooseberries, lime and lemon, some funk and cellar in the flavor, with a decent bitterness and some vinous notes. Medium to full, pleasant carbonation, quite dry on the palate. Long mostly fruity finish with lime and some peaches. Quite nice this one, but a bit boring in a way. 150814

Bottle share. Overly yeasty, in your face Brett, dominates aroma and taste. Light pale golden body, sharp, sour, tangy behind the yeast.

craftycarl21 (2302) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle, thanks to Bruce for sharing!! Slightly hazy straw pour, small bubbly white head. Nose and flavor bring cheesy funk, mango, kiwi skin, tangerine, apricot, peach Greek yogurt. Tangy, acidic, but clean on the finish, with medium carbonation. Pretty good stuff.

Beaver (1484) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2014
12.7 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with a small white head that goes to a thin film.

The aroma is straw malts, soft tropical fruit, earthy brett and some tart acidic notes.

The flavor is sweet tropical fruit quickly followed by a lot of tart, acidic sourness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Overall, this has aged nicely - nice blend of sweet tropical fruit, earthy brett and tart acidic sourness.
