4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
It pours a rusty red murky colour with a 2 finger head of foam.
I get semi sweet plums with a rather massive nose of Brett. Some cider like qualities here to with a dose of vanilla.
The taste is more dominated by Brett than perhaps I like but the fruitiness is quite tasty and the finish is pretty darned dry. Malt wise, I get earthy notes, pretty much all I can pull out.
Medium body and carbonation. Nice mouth feel.
The Brett wears on my palate after a few sips but I’d hardly say this isn’t a very good beer, because it is.

Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass brownish-copper coloured. Small head. Sourish-berry aroma. Starts sweet-fruity, more and more sourish notes, not too intense.Finish milder, well balanced, malty. Nice!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle split at the Manny G tasting, acquired at Domus Birrae a few years back, 28/06/14.
Murky reddish orange/amber with a good sized beige head that eventually dissipates to nyadaa.
Nose is bitter fruit skins, rotting orchard tones, earthy, straw, pears.
Taste comprises dark berry fruits, straw, earthy, stoned fruit mash, light woody dankness.
Medium bodied, fine carbonaion, acidic rinse in the close.
Ok sour, not particularly challenging on the palate though, prefer a little more depth than this one offers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours murky deep amber with a minimal off-white head. The nose is woody, wet leaf, mild acidity, red grape and vanilla. The taste is tart, tangy, some acidity, berry skin, sherbet, vinous, wood and earth with a dry, and some acidity on finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A touch acidic for me, but decent enough.
