Borresteijn (4686) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2011
75cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Hazy amber colour, dense rocky off white head. Aroma of Brettanomyces, apple, bread, flowers, vanilla/oak. Flavour is light sweet, malty, vanilla, apple, Brettanomyces flavours, light sourness, bitter hoppy finish with a light sour twang. Light to medium bodied. This beers screams Orval. Great.

IluvatarMilan (274) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2011
Bottle 75cl. Pours a great dark orange body with a big white head. Very soft aroma, barnyard, yeast, slightly funky, dried fruit. Taste is very subtle yet complex. Even though the body is pretty thin the barrel aging gives it avery warm character. Aftertaste is very dry; due to its great subtlety it unfortunately hangs around for quite too short a time.

dEnk (3806) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2011
Draft @ ACBF ’11. Brett takes over the op&top quite strongly, very dry, a bit thin, yet not overpowering, although more would like more noticeable hops. Nice beer.

bierkoning (10210) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2011
Corked bottle. Golden color. Oak, apple and vinegar in the aroma. eather, citrus, oak, hints of red wine, sulphur and hopflashes in the flavor. Almost totally dry, only some fruity notes. Thin to medium bodied. Amazingly complex for such a moderate ABV beer.

greenclansman (797) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - MAY 10, 2011
75ml bottle shared with a friend in a snifer glass. The appearance was blur with almost no foam. The whole aroma war poor, but in general I am not so good with the nose. Taste: sour, dry, almost white wine with some hops. Overall: This might be a very special beer, but for sure its not my kind.

deanso (5261) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2011
75cl bottle shared with 2 friends at the Doerak, delft. Good white head. Hazy blond colour. Hoppy site taste. Interesting combination

kermis (5078) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle shared at Doerak, Delft. Slightly cloudy with little head. Strong Brett in aroma, taste dry with some sourness and citrus. Nice refreshing beer

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2011
Had this one at the ACBF 2011. Golden, amber colored brew. Brett is in the aroma and flavor, but not very sour, mild flavored, some hops. Nice.

skortila (4516) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2011
Bottled. The aroma has brett, flowery hops, some fruit. Slightly hazy, copper coloured beer with a lasting, white head. The taste is very light sour and tart with some evolving bitterness. The brett is clearly prersent, but subtle and balanced. Nice one.
