COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To take up the challenge and make a 100% true Brett IPA can very easily become a fatal attraction for the Brewmaster. Once you get acquainted with Nelson Sauvin’s fruity and seductive personality, along with Bretts irresistible, overpowering, alluring and very charming nature, it will ensnare you and drive you mad obsessing over how exactly you can create the perfect desirable tangy, funky, crisp, tart flavor in ya mouth.

Dorée penchant sur l’orangé, assez trouble, une mousse à première vue généreuse s’estompe toutefois rapidement. Le bouquet est fort intéressant et vivifiant avec ses effluves sauvages et ses odeurs de fruits exotiques. Toujours aussi fruitée en bouche, c’est très juteux et doux, l’amertume étant assez discrète. Les bretts confèrent une légère acidité, rendant cette bière délicieuse et facile à boire. Un vrai délice.

Not sure I really approve of Brett yeast in an IPA, but this isn’t a bad combination. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with thick, pillowy head. Aroma is marked by fruit esters, sort of like a wheat beer, with some spicy Brett funk in there as well. Flavor is hops--some citrus and some pine--with the distinctive Brett flavor--the tang and the tartness. Well-balanced, unlike some of these that overdo it on the Brett; this is pretty well combined.

czar (4143) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
bottle shared by jean-michaël, thanks dawg. pours hazy pale golden with a tall frothy off-white head demonstrating an examplary retention and lacing. honeyed and doughy pale maltiness, catty and citrusy, very fryuity - danky fruitiness - quality white grape juice, canned peaches in light syrup, chewy resins. moderate carbonation, light body - oily and relatively thick for an all-brett, dry, clean and sharp grassy-tropical-citrusy finish. balanced and tasty. non-struggling clean brett.

Bottle shared by Jean-Michael, thanks dude! Pours a clear golden with a medium white head that leaves great lacing. Not sure why it isn’t a 5, maybe it didn’t glow in the dark! ;) Anyway, nose offer some soft candy (think like some cotton candy maybe) but also some nice fruit juice and a really nice hoppy background. Taste is indeed fruity, moderately bitter and overall really well balanced. Mouthfeel was lightly juicy and carbonation level medium. Great!

superspak (2455) - Michigan, USA - MAY 17, 2014
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours lightly hazy bright gold color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pineapple, tangerine, melon, white grape, passion fruit, orange peel, clove, pepper, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright hops and moderate fruity/spicy brett notes; with good strength. Taste of pineapple, tangerine, white grape, passion fruit, melon, orange peel, clove, pepper, floral, grass, pine, and grass/yeast earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness and peppery yeast on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, tangerine, melon, white grape, passion fruit, orange peel, clove, pepper, floral, grass, pine, and grass/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of bright hops and fruity/spicy brett flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Brett IPA. All around great complexity and balance of bright hops and fruity/spicy brett flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

OldGrowth (2613) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle, from, hmmm, I forget. Ok aroma, sweet, white wine/grape, little funk. Opening up as it warms, Not strong scent, but fun. Clean orangey gold color’ good head, but kind of big and foamy, minor clinging lace, sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy oily mouthfeel, dry sweet finish. I like the play with the hops and Brett, but aroma is not particularly strong, Brett on finish. It’s fine,
