77ships (3763) - 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.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 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). // Revisited 07/2014 during World Cup Final: truly stellar, new world sour with a very impressively balanced composition. Explosive aroma, as citric and heavy-aromatic as the best Cantillon, only infused with an almost dessert wine fruitiness: apricot, reine-claude compote. Excellently dry, astringent, with grapefruit zest bitterness. Elegant, but weaker, oaked dry finish. World class.

EddyBeer1 (876) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2013
Joliment dorée, effervescence fine, beau col blanc qui hélas tombe rapidement. Acidité lambic d’entrée rapidement suivie par un bon malt auquel succède une légère amertume tant houblonnée qu’épicée allant vers le poivre. Très belle complexité!

shoulderbroken (2026) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle at Capital. Light blond colour, small white bubbly head. Aroma is good, pleasantly sour, creamy, gherkins. Taste is good too, creaminess stands at the front, but is backed up by citrus, and sourness, white wine, pickles. Interesting.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2012 29/IV/2012 - on cask @ ZBF 2012 (Leuven) - BB: n/a (2012-444)

Little cloudy beige beer, small irregular off-white head, unstable, pretty adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, pineapple, passion fruit, bit piny, tart apples. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, lots of citrus, some cheese, overripe pineapple, bitter grapefruit. Aftertaste: quite sour, cheesy, lychees, little bitter. The barrel has clearly taken off some of the bitter edges. The sourness really works well on this one.

PriorL (1777) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2013
New 33cl bottle. Bought at ’Geers’ Oostakker. APPEARANCE: dark blond beer, little to no head (white). NOSE: sourness, citrus, fruity, some grains. TASTE: sour, fruity, some brett, wood, dry , plum, raisins, some cinnamon even? Very good and decent beer, only a shame it has almost no foam...
