Craft Clerkenwell. Bottleshare. Hazy amber - gold beer, very thin pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth but has decent fine carbonation. Semi dry. A prominent, if light, savoury note. Mild generic fruits and floralness. More savouryness. Light winey tang. Semi dry finish. Decent if a little over bretty.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Denman Wine and Spirits, Vancouver
Hazy golden color, compact head. The aroma is spicy, funky, with a note of wood and lemon zest. The mouthfeel is bone dry; the malts are not spectacular, the spicy note is nice, probably with some coriander; it has a very light vinous note that seems to intrude rather than complete the profile. The final is a bit too astringent. More harsh than complex.
Very good, although I expected more from this one.

Bottle shared at the Craft Beer Co. Clerkenwell pre-Christmas tasting - London. Cheers to everyone’s favourite wild-man, Kenny. The beer pours hazy orange-gold with a creamy, white head. The nose has a nice funk about it, with secondary notes of peach, citrus, orange, tangerine and poop, too. Light sweet flavor with moderate funk, wood, hay, more tangerine, orange, all of it laced with a twang of brett character. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Drying on the finish, with more wood, poopy brett, tangerine. Good stuff.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot Dany), pours a hazy bright golden with a medium white head. Nose brings out lots of brett upfront, with considerable floral hops, and maybe a touch of the wine barrels but not much - great aromatics. Flavour brings out a wonderful marriage of brett, white wine barrels, and spicy floral hops - absolutely exquisite mix of these three notes. It begins on the brett, then transitions into the spicy hoppy goodness, leaving a spicy, hoppy, and vinous finish. An absolute stunner by Dunham. Amazing stuff.

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.
