mcberko (6419) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2013
750mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a hazy golden / copper wit medium white head. Aroma of noble rot wine barrels, some brett, and barnyard notes. Flavour brings out loads of brett, some horse blanket, strong wine barrels a la noble rot, and dry citrus skin. Amazing complexity, with loads of vinous and wild notes. Exceedingly high drinkability, with the brett and wine barrels used to perfection. Most excellent stuff.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber beer with a nice cream head. Tart/light sour aroma with fruitiness. Malt and yeast flavor with summer fruit, tartness, and earthiness. Medium bodied. Yeast and tartness linger with brett, summer/tropical fruit, and malt.

SuperTiti33 (517) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
Décembre 2010. Blonde doré. Explosion lors de l'ouverture. Nez de levure sauvage. Sucré. Floral. Boisé. Vin blanc. Bouche: Forte effervescence. Belle acidité. Pomme. Fruité. Vanille. Terreuse. Levure sauvage. Caramel. Un peu épicé. Chêne. Citron. Légère amertume. Une très belle complexité mais manque un peu de corps.

Leglome (11) - Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
Bouteille 750 ml. Janvier 2013, Encore très réussi, bière unique en son genre, ceux qui ont la chance d’en détenir encore une sont choyés(Ou très riches ET disciplinés). C’est la troisième fois que je me paye l’occasion d’en boire une et c’est un mix parfait entre l’acidité du vin blanc et de la levure sauvage. Yo lo pierde really mon latin.

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2013
Bottle at my birthday drinks, many thanks to Bruce! It pours cloudy golden/light orange with a small white head. The nose is wood, barnyard, vanilla, toasted coconut, apricot and peach. The taste is earth, brett, spice, orange, fleshy peach, apricot, hay, touch of alcohol and dough with a dry finish. Medium+ body, moderate carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Good balance and flavour. Rather well done.

Leighton (10960) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell during Paul’s Birthday Celebration - London. Thanks to Bruce for this one. Pours hazy yellow-gold with a light, creamy white head. Good funky nose, lots of poo, manure, light yeast notes. Light to medium sweet flavor with good funk, further poo character, light lemon, some dry dough. Light to medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Clean and dry to finish with manure, brett, hay, pale malts, faint grassy bitterness. Lovely. One of the beers of the day.

blankboy (6045) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle [750ml]. Pours a clear, very bubbly, golden-orange with a large lasting fizzy off-white head. Nice aroma of sour fruit, wood, spices, yeast, light floral hops, lemon and more, lots going on here. Flavour’s even better, it’s also sour, yeasty, and everything else but it’s refreshing as well, and a joy to drink. Dry, lightly acidic, lightly bitter finish. I really like that the barrel-ageing is subtle and not overdone. Average to medium bodied. Well done, this is a fantastic beer.
