Brian O’Reilly of Sly Fox Brewing Company joins Dirk Naudts to create the fifth brew in the De Proef Brewmaster’s Collaboration series. This year’s collaboration celebrates the great brewing cultures of both Philadelphia and Gent.

Broederlijke Liefde (Brotherly Love) is a slightly higher gravity interpretation of the saison style. It is fermented with two yeasts – a classic saison yeast as well as brettanomyces from an original gravity of 1066 (16.5 plato). These yeasts yield a dry and slightly spicy ale with a strong hint of farmhouse character that will continue to develop with age. The use of Target and Styrian Golding hops at 37 IBUs add floral aromatics and a balancing bitterness.

Broederlijke Liefde if the official Belgian collaboration ale of Philly Beer Week 2011. If you can’t join us in Philadelphia for our annual celebration in June please enjoy this creation in your own celebration of the international brewing community.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. The aroma has tropical fruit and a little bit of funk with some nice floral notes as well. The flavor has a great balance of fruity sweetness and funky yeast, with citrus, grass, and floral notes. Really good.

(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy maize orange body with a medium cream head. Aroma of orange, mango, pineapple, light horse blanket, and florals. Flavor of orange, herbs, grass, yeast, brett, and florals with a dry, bitter finish. Excellent.

SPDickerman (1014) - Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Pours hazy orange with touches of green on the edges and fluffy white head. Smells like pineapple and other tropical fruits and some barnyard funk. Tastes predominantly of barnyard funkiness with some fruitiness and some astringency that becomes more apparent (and unpleasant) as the beer warms. Light-bodied with an acidic texture and lots of mouth-carbonation, De Proefbrouwerij Broederlijke Liefde (Brotherly Love) finishes with a nice Brett funk flavor.

Bottle, big thanks to Jay for brining this to Dmac’s house. Pours out a moderate golden color with a light white head. Aroma is of lightplastic band-aid brett, some slight fruity notes and some bread. Taste is complex, grreat brett notes of light plastic band-aid, light earth, some fruit, pepper and some lingering yeasty notes on the finish. This had a lot going on.

TomDecapolis (4591) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 1, 2011
Pours a hazy golden with a medium foamy white head that laced. Aroma of barnyard and lots of citrusy notes from the brett. Some saison spicy yeast esters. Floral, citrusy, great brett profile, dry bready saison. Really well done!

Reynolds314 (2687) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 1, 2011
On tap at Armsby Abbey. Very nice bretty saison. Aroma was brett, spices, grainy. Taste was much of the same. Nice spicy notes break through the tartness. Slightly medicinal finish but not unpleasant.

Ernesto987 (4325) - Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 Bretty nose, awesome saison. Grainy saison malt bill, lots of spices that complement rather than overwhelm this beer. Is there a beer called high tide? I think there is. Stupid fuckers

hopdog (9461) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2011
On tap at Capone’s. Poured a medium and hazy yellow color with a small sized head. Aromas of yeast, some funkiness, and some fruintiness. Tastes of spices, brett, fruity, and yeast. Light sour finish.

32 oz mini-growler fill from Pinocchio’s. Hazy gold with a snowy cap. Nose is honeydew and pastry dough with floral and herbal hints. Oily and a bit resiny with a soft buzz, but lighter on the palate. Taste is honeysuckle, a suggestion of oregano, candi and grass. A bit sugary now but in time could become awesome.
