A big thanks to Matt for this offering! Partagée en compagnie de Bruno. Un liquide d’été puissant. Robe orangée aux reflets presque rouge, peu de mousse. Profondément sexy! Un look qui trahit ses origines indigènes et un caractère à ne pas prendre à la légère. Des arômes de Brettanomyces, de vin rouge, de bois en quantité, de culture bactérienne. C’est profondément agréable bien qu’autoritaire. La forte effervescence en bouche allège l’ensemble qui est heureusement moins vineux que je l’eusse redouté. La Brett sauvagine apporte une acidité très bien balancée et une fraîcheur des plus plaisantes. On ne sent jamais l’alcool. Une bière sauvage qui s’apprivoise doucement, respectueusement.

750ml bottle pours a pale brown color with a bit of head. Nice balance of the malt and Bret. The Bret flavors are intense at the end.

solidfunk (7354) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Well integrated bretta, with some crackery element. Tangy orange. Pours hazy brown with good head and lacing. Good balance but doesnt aproach the excellence of nectarous. Bottle present from my parents.

750ml in Seattle. Orange, a little haze, good thin foam. Sweet, dense tart brett aroma. Body has a little banana-wax. Trevor says papaya. Nice dry finish. Pretty nice!

golden color. Very perfumy nose but brett is fairly subdued. Fairly tart sour mouth with lots of oak with Brett. Highly carbonated. Excellent. Big lingering finish.
