750 ml bottle. Thanks to Ajax! Slightly yeasty, Brett aroma with a big white wine barrel influence.

The flavor has a tannic white wine note right up front with a nice yeasty chewy body. The Brett has a very mild funk note that slightly lingers. The texture is light and wonderfully dry. Nice drink.

I bought this bottle and #2 in Quebec City (I think) about a month ago.

A - Slightly cloudy, golden yellow. Could be incredibly beautiful after sitting for a few months.

S - Aroma is very peppery. Honey, clove and even some ginger. Oak presence is slow and a little sour grape.

T - Interesting taste. Lots of belgian yeast, oaky, strange, sort of tannic, high in bitterness. wheat, grain, bread dough. strange.

M - Explosive mouthfeel. chalky finish

O - This was very interesting. Not sure if I’d revisit...maybe with more age?

Bottle shared by dresden back in the summer and also from Pat, thanks guys. Apperance is cloudy yellow with frothy white head. Aroma is lemon, brett funk, oak, and white wine. Taste is white wine, oak, lemon, and light bitterness. Finishes dry, with wine like aftertaste. This is really good, very well balanced, lots of flavour my only compliant would be that the bottle was a gusher.

_angst_ (3544) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle courtesy of tkrjukoff. Pours hazy orangish yellow with a frothy and fizzy offwhite head that leaves some sparse trace on the glass. Smell is fruity and funky with crackers, grapefruit juice, lemon juice, white grapes, kumquats, moist wood, hay, dry soil, minerals, barnyard and lemon zest. Taste is very tiny sour, slightly bitter, tiny fruity, herbal and funky with crackers, grapefruit, white grapes, star fruit, kumquats, hay, dry soil, minerals, dry wood, lemon balm, dill, barnyard and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, very tiny tart and light bodied. Finish is very tiny sour and bitter with crackers, grapefruit, grapes, star fruit, hay, dry soil, dry wood, barnyard, lemon balm and lemon zest. Very nice and refreshing. Possibly a bit too bitter which hides the subtle pleasant funk and ruins the sparkling tropical funky complexity.

Bomber. Pours almost clear pale amber with a small off white head. Aroma is malty fruity sweet dill funky sourish. Flavor is dry bretty dill astringent bitter lots of citrus fruits, unfortunately the bitterness takets over the finish a bit too much for my taste.

Franckg (462) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
Liquide d’une couleur jaune-orangée assez trouble surmonté d’un col de mousse dense et très actif qui m?a fait perdre le 1/4 de la bouteille. Arômes de brett, épices, coriandre, banane et citron. En bouche on goûte rapidement le côté fruité de la bière. Un peu amère, les effluves de zinfandel nous parviennent tranquillement et subtilement, sans pour autant dominer avec leurs tanins prononcés. Les houblons apparaissent ensuite suivie d’une touche fruitée rappelant les oranges et le citron. La transition des saveurs est rapide mais efficace et balancée. La finale, sèche et modérée, laisse sa place aux levures sauvages et s’étire longuement sur le palais.

lesifflebiere (1471) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
Gushing magistral, et ininterrompu, à l’ouverture. Liquide vaguement doré, trouble et avec de petits morceaux en suspension. Mousse blanche très généreuse. Nez de mangues, de poires, de vin blanc et d’orange, tandis que la bouche est sèche et légèrement acidulée, savoureuse et complexe à souhait mais un peu trop pétillante. Une superbe bière qui présente malheureusement de lourds défauts ; un diamant trop brut pour être pleinement apprécié.
