tom10101 (2612) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
At Zythos Beer Festival. Hazy golden/orange with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of leathery brettanomyces, perfumy hops, floral/herbal notes, oak and winey notes. Taste is hoppy too and dominated by brettanomyces, herbal/floral note, a good malt backbone and nice lemony finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry leathery finish. Good wild Belgian Ale. Very tasty and quenching.

bartlebier (1480) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 10, 2014
(backlog ZBF 2013, ZO 28). On draught, courtesy of brewer. 2nd festival day, skimpier notes: impressive green apple sourness, along with its bretty peel, in the aroma returns as natural fruity, woody acidity in the taste, on a very dry palate. Slightly sulphuric notes join a maltier body as it warms, leaving a refreshing astringent finish. Very well-composed, almost time-clocked yet light nouvelle vague BE brew. Looking forward to revisit bottled soon (bottle BAB 2014).

Yellow colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Complex aroma. Malty notes with light sour aftertaste. Notes of oak. Fruity with light bitterness in the finish.

laiti (5406) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 5, 2014
33 cl bottle (6,5%) @ HBF ’14 as "Cuvée Jeun’homme
Aroma has vinegar, some earthy and funky notes. Flavour is odd with grapefruit earthy notes and yeast. Finishes with unpleasant milky notes. Odd stuff, feels like oud bruin.

77ships (3530) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2014
33 cl. bottle sampled. Procured from Willems. Hazy orange with white bubbles. Smells of brett, fermenting apricots, tart, touch wine vinegar, peaches, tart, touch sea salt. Tastes of brett, sour peaches and apricots, tart, green apples, brief touch of Foie Gras, faint salt in the back, touch wood, tart white wine. Touch brett body. Man t his is truly great, this one is a real secret, no one ever talks about this, if a major USA brewery were to release something like this and hype it, it would probably hit the top 50.

Vignale (1975) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2014
Flaska från beergium.com. Gyllengul, lågt vitt skum, klar. Fin syrlig doft med mycket trä, syrliga äpplen och lite lök och senap i bakgrunden. Medelstor syrlighet, torr, maltvinäger, äpplen och trä. Trevlig smak med eftersmak är lite fadd och lökig och inte lika trevligt. Ett annorlunda öl med mycket geuzekaraktär men med lita udda smakbild som jag gissar kan uppskattas eller inte beroende på smak. Jag tyckte den var riktigt trevlig.
