bytemesis (6030) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 16, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy butterscotch, very large off-white head, dissipates slowly, good lacing. Aroma is very nice Brett forward, funky, dank basements, loads of oak tannin, hints of dust and black pepper. Flavor is dry, medium clean Brett funk, oaky, fruity and a bit vinous. Medium body, high carbonation. Good.

marcus (8615) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle from Pangaea, Sacramento. Pours murky blonde with a tiny beige head and a sour apricot aroma. There is a smooth vinous flavor that is mildly sour with some apricot and a woody finish. No sign of Zin. Interesting.

750 c&c shared by Marcus. Pours very hazy orange gold with a strange tinged head. Aroma is sourish orange/peach. Med minus body. Flavor is sourish orange/peach/apricot. It’s very smoothly sour. Gets a bit earthy/woody, and there is a Brett flavor suggestion.It’s really enjoyable.

Ernesto987 (5289) - Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2016
you cant mess this up. The care and attention of a french canadian brewer. Then a bretted saison aged in zinfandel barrels. WIN WIN. This beer is incredible, great balance between all the nuances and flavors. Lactic, herbal, dry, muddled yeasts. Im impressed.

hopscotch (10524) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Bottle... Hazy dirty-orange pour with a fleeting, white head. The nose features herbal and citrus notes accompanied by a small splash of white wine. Light-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor features citrusy grapefruits and tangerines. It’s also, bretty and bready with a white wine-like finish. Bottle courtesy of MartinT!

Reynolds314 (3216) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Pale color a bit of a gusher. Aroma is funky, stone fruit, pepper, wine, cheese, and vanilla. Taste is tart funky and mildly sweet. Soft carb for how much of a gusher i was. Good stuff.

weark (573) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - MAR 11, 2016
Bouteille achetée à La Mise En Bière - De couleur orange légèrement ambré trouble avec une mousse blanche qui colle bien au verre - Au nez des arômes fruité peche, raisin, épicé, poivre noir, bret, blé, chêne, on sent bien le fût et les levures - En bouche c’est tres amère, épicé, bret et fût, beaucoup moin fruité - Corp moyen, amertume forte, carbonation vivante, légèrement acide, final amère et épicé - trop amère mais bonne idée

Travlr (19567) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 7, 2016
Bottle at the Sovereign. Gusher! Cloudy golden yellow color, massive white head with good retention and solid lacing. Nice aroma of dusty overripe peaches, black pepper and rotten fruit scattered around some barnyard somewhere. Taste is softly sour stone fruit with peppery, dusty tannins and rotten grapes. Delicious.

Merci à Ju-Lo pour le partage! Une bière qui fut conservée pendant un an environ. Mega gusher à l’ouverture. La nappe et la table en ont peut-être même plus long à dire que moi sur ce produit! Magnifiques lacings sur le verre. Ceux-ci ne tiennent malheureusement pas mais tant pis. Il m’apparaît que tout de cette bière tourne autour de levures Brettanomyces. En effet, ce sont les levures qui dominent tant les arômes que les saveurs. Une pointe de citron et même d’écorce de citron est présente. Ce citron provient possiblement d’un important houblonnage en pre boil conférant ainsi une amertume certaine mais les parfums de houblons sont minces. Peut-être ceux-ci se sont-ils évanouis avec le temps? C’est vraiment la Brett qui se démarque, au détriment de la barrique de Zinfandel qui passe malheureusement loin derrière. Je reviendrai sur cette évaluation après avoir goûté à ce produit fraichement brassé.

rosenbergh (9685) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2016
750 ml bottle. Thanks to Timo A! Hazy orange color with a small off-white head. Sourness, farmyard, brett, mild fruity hops, mild bitterness and some cardboardy dryness in the aroma. The flavor is sourness, tartness, dryness, brett and some hoppy bitterness. Nice mixture of everything. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
