ineedbeer (786) - 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 (8240) - 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 (2757) - 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 (10869) - 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 (1545) - 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.

robloc303 (268) - Erie, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Pours hazy orange, thin white head and a large chunk of yeast. Aroma is estery, lemon, grass, copper, musty, and a bit oxidized. Flavor is fruity, red apple, orange, lemon, copper and brett. Body is thick, oily and creamy and foams in mouth. Finish is very dry and lingers with lemon grass. Very Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (2168) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 4, 2013
From Ølbutikken shared at Ohtsuki. Bottle 6.3% musty, stale hay, like a hay loft with a cross breeze from a fruit orchard. Not getting any of the metallic qualities I usually associate with Brett. The taste is clean, bready with just a hint of sourness on the finish & a touch of lemon. Not that complex but great stuff.

RichardGretton (4260) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle. Vibrant cloudy orange and golden beer with a strong head. The aroma is mildly spiced and yeasty, and the flavour is quite yeasty with some malty roastedness and that Belgian style spiced finish. Overall a strong enough tasting beer but pretty average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
