4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lemon, coriander, kalamata olive, grass, straw, fruity esters peeking through. Rustic, musty backbone. Fizzy, but sticks around on the tongue. Finish is arid. Outstanding.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very cloudy, pale golden orange color with visible carbonation bubbling up and a two finger pillowy white head that sticks around forever. Really good retention only slowly fading into a lasting cap. Looks to be over carbonated.
Prominent musty brett aroma with farmhouse yeast, grass, straw and light fruit. Very earthy and funky with wild bugs overpowering almost everything else. There’s a touch of floral hops and light fruit but the brett dominates.
Medium body and very over carbonated taking away from the mouthfeel and flavor. Lots of dry, musty funk with the brett overpowering almost everything enjoyable about the base beer. Nice to have a little of this complimenting the farmhouse yeast but it’s way too strong for my liking. Decent amount of bread/yeast flavor underneath along with grass, straw, faint peppery spice and light fruit. Once the palate adjusts to strong brett presence, the yeast, spice, apple, pear and alcohol flavors come out. Not a bad beer but overcarbed and a bit one dimensional.

2013 bottle - did I store too long? nice aroma; hazy orange pour. Taste was mild and really not pleasing; not nasty just not something I want to drink. Grassy funk; drying toward end some bitterness and I got a peppery spice also. meh

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy orange color with foam layer. The smell is malty sourish with a milky touch (on second smell: ahoi brause). The taste is super mild with a silky mouth feeling, wrong yeast notes and spicy peppery parts. The aftertaste is calm and mild. My problem with this beer is, that this is too mild and it looses a lot of intensity. This beer might be edgy, but is cut back to much. I am a bit disappointed.

Vintage 2013. Pops hugely when opening, hazy orange color with huge white head. Aroma is fresh, bretty, grapes, lemony. Taste is lemony, a bit biscuity malts, lemon zests, spicy yeasts. Refreshing and well-balanced. I like it, feels like a nice Saison.

Bottle. Fruity aroma with spices, yeast funkiness and tropical fruits. In taste similar, with more grapes in flavour. Low body, dry and crisp with low bitterness and bretts in the finish. Easy drinkable, nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A hazy golden coloured beer that pours with a huge rocky white head. It has a spicy lemon and vanilla flavour with gentle barnyard and biscuit notes followed by a zesty herbal and citrus finish. Excellent!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Sharp, almost smoky, sort of funk, burnt rubber. Medium gold straw color. Thin fruity initial, light Brett, harsh funky fruitiness in mid palate, and then a drop off in flavors and it flattens. Interesting but kind of disappointing for what should be a special brew. Flavors thin out too quickly and the harsh, phenolic notes detract in a beer that is this light bodied.

Bottle. Funky brett nose, a bit lactic, peaches,grapefruit. Orange-gold, hazy, with lace. Very funky flavor, harsh, hay, thinner. Very disappointing flavor.

Grumlig gyllene huve. Små bubblor. Dåligt med skum. Humlig smak(typiskt USA) & massa brettajäst. En viss trevlig maltsötma infinner sig. Medelfyllig kropp. Tyvärr är doften i just denna flasköl väldigt liten. Känner en viss bretta.
