Drank at thirdeye11’s birthday party. After having previously tried the New Belgium version I was excited to try this one. Pours an orange-yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of brett in it, as well as some orange citrus notes. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of brett and leather notes, as well as a good bit of yeast, orange citrus and caramel malt. There is really not too much funk in the flavor as the brett mainly comes across as leathery. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Pretty good.

GT2 (8467) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 24, 2012
375mL bought back in May 2012. Cellared until December 24th 2012. Trying to coax some Brett infection out of this one. No dice. No Brett presence at all :( Pours a translucent lemonade color into golden with low haze. Smaller, white foam with okay retention and swathes of lacing. Nose is really nice: thick artisanal honey, lemonade, hints of Berliner Weisse lemonade, clean and no funk. Taste is like De Dolle Arabier or Stille Nacht with honey, candi sugar, oil, golden raisins, small caramel, banana dessert. Palate fluffy, dense, oily. Very Belgian in structure and I really like this despite its zero Brett character. I don’t think holding this any longer will develop any funk. Better drink it now and enjoy it for what it is, which is certainly not sour or wild.

12.7 oz bottle. Clear orange brown with white froth. Nose is green banana, pear, hay and lemon yoghurt. Oily medium body with a soft sparkle. Taste is green melon, toffee, green tea, yeast and grass. Could be really nice if it dries out some.

ryanfolty (1848) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2012
December 23, 2012 bottle from binnys. Orange pour with nice head that faded quickly and tiny bit of sediment. Aroma was bready, citrus and mild Brett. Taste was very mild, malty, citrus, some spice and maybe some brett. Palate seemed to be medium bodied, but was watery at times.

Many thanks to Fin&Loz for a 375ml bottle of this one, kindly passed on to Finn and me at Kernel Brewery 3rd November 2012. The bottle comes with a cork and a wire cradle and opens with a good shot followed by smoke. Hazy golden body, decent white head. Smell of sweet citrus and a mild touch of yeast. Sweet banana in flavour partially offset by spiced pineapples. Hints of wheat as well. Sweet ending. Medium bodied. Overall too sweet, but still worth drinking. (Celebration of the bonfire night at our hotel room in London, 5.11.2012).

12.12.12. Bottle. White, small amount of foam. Clear golden color. Aroma has some sourness in it (~brettanomyces, I guess) and sweetness. Flavor is a bit watery and sugar, and something else. Mouthfeel is quite smooth. Aftertaste is a very slight sour and sugar. Overall not bad.
