Dedollewaitor (13390) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle @ Beer & Ball Saturday, Odense. 13,000th Tasting. Pours hazy golden with a small off white head. Very mild funk, brett and fruit. Yeasty phenols. Too little brett.

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Cloudy golden-orange. Aroma is yeasty, fruity, a bit soapy, a bit floral. Sweetish yeasty flavor with fruity esters. Medium-bodied. Like a middle-of-the-road Belgian Ale.

ineedbeer (544) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 19, 2013
375mL bottle dated 7/23/2012.Aroma is fairly fruit with moderate pear and red apple notes along with lighter notes of tropical fruit and pineapple. Light graininess present. Hint of barnyard funk.Pours a slightly cloudy pale gold with a moderately thick white head that is slightly soapy but had pretty good retention. Light lacing and no legs.Flavor is similar but with a lot more red apple cider character that immediately hits you. Lighter pear notes with only faint tropical fruit and cherry. Funk is fairly low and malt tastes a bit stale and honey-like. Low bitterness. Some lingering honey and red cider notes. Dry finish.Mouthfeel is medium to medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.Overall a good beer but not an amazing beer. Saints Devotion is a much better Brett beer. The cider notes are too strong and it seems a little under carbonated. Could use a lighter fruit character and fresher malt profile.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Sample at the Willoughby PBCCP tasting on 11/17/2013: This brew pours a hazy yellow-gold color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit, malt and yeast. Medium-bodied with flavors of mildly tart fruit, earthy yeast and malt. The finish is fruity with a slightly funky yeast aftertaste. A little disappointing considering the caliber of the two breweries involved in this effort. Decent overall.

Bottle. Sour nose, vinegar. Fruit, not one dimensional sweet. A robust Belgian ale coping with the Brett.

Steve_0 (2229) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle at home. Pour is clear orange with a big white head and good lacing. Bready, grainy, somewhat grassy, biscuity - really no brett present - cereal, and earthy aroma. Taste is light banana, somewhat estery, vanilla, biscuit, dough, a hint of basil, lacto, and grass. Medium body with medium-to-high carbonation. I sat on this one for a while hoping the brett would develop much more, however, this one is really disappointing. Pretty weak shit.

Pinball (10605) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2013
bottle from ølbutikken. cloudy yellow, smooth white head. clear flowery aroma, also quite bretty, quite dry, bretty dry but also clearly non-belgian aroma. Flavor is flowery, sort of lemongrassy, faint oranges, the sweetness works not so good with the faint bretty notes imo. Like a too-sweet saison, with too little yeasty spicy stuff going on. Lost abbey usually tastes a lot better than this.

brenn79 (1429) - Idaho, USA - OCT 11, 2013
12.7 oz corked n’ caged bottle, PDT 5/24/12- Pours slightly hazy golden with a thin crackly white head that reduces immediately leaving a thin collar. Aroma is slightly tart, wine grapes, pretty subdued. The taste is wine grapes, floral and fruity, moderately dry finish, some brett shows up as it warms. I tasted the New Belgium Brett Beer just before this, neither of them are blowing me away, very disappointed in this whole collaboration.
