3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost black bodied and with very foamy off white head. Sour aroma, darker toasty malts, bready. As this is classified as sour ale here on RB, I believe it, and it works, but sometimes... Let’s just say it has a malty sourness that I generally like. Enough darker malts, but not enough hops. Dry leaves and bready aftertaste. It’s a good drink, interesting enough, but the recipe needs refinement. And it’s too foamy. (33cl bottle from La Houblonnière Toulouse)

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
75cl bottle. Brown with dirty head. Difficult to open it without spoiling the beer on the floor. They put lots of spices in the bottle that the beer is troubles. Nose : spices, fruits, tart, Sip : low to medium density, oily texture, good carbonation. Sweet and sour with wood and spices flavour. Spices dominated by clove, liquorice and safran. It gets dry sip after sip and the spices lasts long. Too spicy and the fact that half of the beer goes on the floor I call this beer waist of my money.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 330ml. -not sure is this from Bières Cultes at Rue des Halles or from La Cave à Bulles but im closer to first option. Darker amber coloured, huge off-white head, herbal and slight spicy nose. Moderate malty, slight sourish fruity and caramel with hint of herbs, coffee and pepper. Different than I’ve expected but drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml from Cave à Bulle.
Appearance : Deep amber medium foamy brown-ish head. Some lacing.
Aroma : Big brett. Some resinous bretty and hoppy notes. Acidic with red fruits. Funky and barnyard.
Taste : Lots of brett with some acidity. Very light tartness. Light fruits, light caramel. Light hops. Finish is acidic with lots of brett.Fairly dry wit light bitterness.
Palate : Fizzy carbonation. Fairly thin palate.
Overall : Nice brett, nice funk. I’m not a fan of darker brett beers. I feel like brett goes better in a blonde beer. Fairly drinkable. Nice brett fix but not my type of wild ale.

Pours muddy orange-amber with a big, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has heavy brett, cocoa-powder, sweet malts. High carbonation, fairly light (but not thin) mouthfeel. Good dryness. Flavour has clear cocoa, coffee, caramel malts, light lactic, lots of funk and brett. Long, lingering dry funky aftertaste. A seriously strange beast, but very lovely, actually.
