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.

Boutip (5737) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2016
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a super large white foamy head with excellent retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry Brett notes with some light dry floral hoppy notes and some vinous notes is quite nice. Taste is a mix of super dry Bretty notes with nice dry floral Nelson Sauvin hops notes with a vinous finish. Body is full for style with good carbonation. Quite dry as a beer but very nice level of complexity.

Tap at Taphouse. Cloudy yellow smooth white head. Aroma is wheaty faint note of Brett. Sweet notes. Flavor is very nice slightly Brett good bitterness from hops. Reminds me of Belgian ipa. Subtle notes of exotic fruits.

electrotype (608) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
Ça sent clairement les bretts, mais agrémenté de notes fruitées les équilibrant. Le liquide est très beau, d’un or pâle et opaque. En bouche, les bretts sont plus présents que ne le laissait présager le nez : ils prennent même trop de place. Les amateurs de ce type de levure seront aux anges, mais, personnellement, je suis un peu tanné de ces saveurs de grange et d’écurie mal équilibrées.

ciocanelu (1001) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 22, 2016
Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma is really heavy on the brett, covers everything else. Taste is more fruity but still has intense brett character. Body is medium and well carbonated. Not bad but the brett character is too intense.
