Received this earlier this year from Doppelbockulus in a great trade... Thanks Charley!! Pours dark golden... looks like apple juice and the light carbonation and nearly nonexistent head solidifies that image. Nose is grainy with the brett showing only as some light lemon and dusty/grassy notes... really fruity and sweet with warmth. Flavor is pretty much the same with an underlying sorta fruity sweetness... apple and perhaps apricot. Very light carbonation ... bubbles only really show on the tongue. Just not very good. Seems like a BSPA with only the lightest Brett character.

Marheb (2756) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Un liquide ambré lumineux avec peu de rétention de mousse. Le nez fait peur, les tomates pointent dangereusement et gâche la première impression. En bouche c’est rondelet et minéral avec une base de biscuit miellé et de caramel asséché. C’est malheureusement à côté de la track.

Mesjasz (103) - Lodz, POLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Little hazy golden color, white head. Aroma is minor bretta funk and fruits, some lambik acidity note. Taste is light bitter and then sweet with tart note at finish. Floral, yeast and bread flavor. Medium body, smooth texture and low carbonation. Not much going on here.

Hoppy_Luke (469) - Poznań, POLAND - JAN 30, 2015
Pierwsze (poza Orvalem) moje piwo robione na dzikich drożdżach (Brettanomyces). Bardzo byłem ciekaw jak smakuje piwo fermentacji spontanicznej. Spodziewałem się czegoś na kształt lambiców, ale to zupełnie inna bajka. Kolor słomkowy, lekka mętność, ze średnią pianą. Prezentowało się bardzo zacnie. Kwaskowość w zapachu, której nie wyczułem później w smaku. Pachniało też nieco owocami. Piwo miało małe wysycenie, ale gdy zabełtałem piwem, żeby uwolnić aromaty, czułem, że gaz podnosi mi dłoń... Smak ciekawy, trudno wychwycić wszystkie nuty. Nieco owoców, ogólnie słodkawe, ale jednocześnie wyczuwalna winna wytrawność. Bardzo niska goryczka. Alkoholu nie czuć prawie w ogóle. Warto spróbować takiego piwa, bardzo dobre, ale na pewno nie zachwycające.

SinH4 (550) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 9, 2014
Bottled May 2012. Yellow color with small head. Aroma is bretty, cucumbers and a bit more vegetables. Taste is fresh and vegetables, moderate sour finish. Not exactly the best sour ale, but easy to drink.

King_Alex_II (295) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 9, 2014
Very disappointing. Some fruit in the smell and a lot of water in the taste. some sourness combined with a lot of boringness.

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
This is a cloudy yellow-orange beer that pours with a rapidly disappearing white head. There are zesty citrus and spicy fruity notes with a creamy mouthfeel and a dry vanilla finish.

anstei (152) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 4, 2014
12.7oz/375ml bottle from Erzbierschof. It’s a sour ale as you would a sour ale expect to look and taste and feel and it is well-balanced, but there’s also nothing in it that would make you praise it as exceptional.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 22, 2014
From notes. Tasted some time near the summer of 2012 from a corked and caged 375mL bottle. Pours cloudy light orange with an average white head that leaves thin lace. The nose is funky brett with peach, apricot, and orange with some light bread malt. The flavor is a touch sweet with the bread malt up front, moving to the nicely bitter, spicy, and nutty brett funk. The body is full with average, stinging carbonation and a long funky brett and lightly nutty finish.

solidfunk (4775) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Seems like age has really ironed out the bretta here because there isn’t more bretta and it certainly isn’t betta than other types. This vintage from 2012. Finishes with light sweetness, and not much bretta. Some florals, some sweet malt. Really just like a regular light Belgian ale. Bottle pour at Churchkey’s 5th anniversary.

Bottle at S&G tasting. Bottled 24/05/2012. APPEARANCE: clouded blond beer, small unstable white head. NOSE: brett, little sour, little hoppy. TASTE: brett, somewhat lactic, weird taste, decent though.
