Koelschtrinker (13628) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Mild säuerlicher Beginn, der Kirschnoten aufweist. Diese verschwinden bald wieder, das Bier wird trockener, vollmundig. Die Säuerlichkeit ist nun mild, das Bier holzig und süffig mit kurzen alkoholischen Unterbrechungen. Nettes süffiges Saures. 10/11/12/12/12/12

At Bellwoods in Toronto. Clear amber with small white head. Very little lacing. Definitive Brett character to the nose. Taste is very representative of the style. Will definitely seek this one out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

harrisoni (15647) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle at Kernel with Harry. thanks Harry. Hazy gold amber. Lasting white head. Decent sour aroma with some sweetness. Good sour. Bready sweetness. Bit of caramel. Pretty good. Sweetness. Sour and sweet some hop on the finish. It’s just a touch sweet but the honey bread and hop is good. Barrel adds some character. Good.

A clear copper gold with a filmy white head. It has a musty tart saison aroma. Wonderfully soft mouthfeel. Tart musty sour, light oakiness, very approachable.

Excellent produit avec une surprenante complexité. Ça sent le vieux cuir et ça goûte aussi ;-) Très fruitée et surette, c’est un délice!

Amazingly complex beer. Smell the funk! Deep amber cloudy orange appearance with thin white head. Slightly sour but very well balanced. Wonderful mouthfeel, with slight carbonation. Expensive yes, but worth every penny.

Une bière trouble aux reflets orangés, mousse superbe et tenace ... c’est joli joli. Arômes de plantes sauvages tel le mélilot (miel / vanille) et le trèfle. Le fruité se décline en une touche de cerise, une touche d’abricot, une touche de pêche. Un peu de pommes surettes aussi. Les notes herbacées rajoutent sur ce piano olfactif des odeurs de basilic thaï, de shisso et de foin d’odeur. On sent déjà que a bouche sera acidulée. Et c’est le cas. La présence de brette apporte à la bière un côté surette, voir ’Rockets’. Pourtant, l’équilibre est superbe entre l’acidulé et le velouté qui tombe en milieu de langue. Une contorsionniste tellement son corps est souple! On l’aimerais un peu plus carbonisée par contre...

Bottle, on multiple occasions at this point in time, as this has become one of my all time favourite beers. I’ve given this beer as a gift and in trade more than any other. I’ve resisted rating it until now because I want to do it justice, but maybe I’ll keep it simple. This beer more than any other for me, illustrates how lovely, complex, and subtle Brett can be. To me, this beer is perfect drinkable funk. Honey sweetness, vinous, funky earthy barnyard and cheese. Wonderful balance, so drinkable. A perennial favourite.
