JorisPPattyn (8800) - Ursel, - FEB 2, 2013
Small white head over hazy blond beer. Very nice citrussy-Bretty (like USA Wyeastlabs Bretts) nose. Again that farmyard,- bretty flavour, with a toasted finish. Excellent balance and good complexity; citrushints. Well-carbonated, bit sharpish MF. Light body - or rather well-attenuated. My friend, how keep you doing it? Everytime it is something worth seeking out...

Countbeer (5615) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2015
Copy my rating from the regular one, add some brett, wood and fruit to it and you got the rating for this beer. Oh and less herbal tones with the brett and fruit being more upfront. Great adding to this beer! Only downfall is the massive foam/foam party it became!

oh6gdx (23707) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Bottled (thanks to laiti for giving a sampler!). Slightly hazy orange colour with a good white head. Aroma is earth, yeast, spices, some fruits and also a bit of alcohol. Flavour is wood, caramel, alcohol, spices, yeast and earth with some nice liquorice kicking in as well. This one was actually good in a messy "Fantome" way, yet so brilliantly balanced in it’s own twisted way. Wow.
