FatPhil (10702) - Tallinn, - JUN 28, 2013
330ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Typical "chuck in a brett cube" horseblanket hints in aroma. Buttery. Rather a boring ale. Reminds me of the Architecture - they’re dangerously similar. Blah

Decent, but no way near Orval. Has some of the tart pepperyness, but never reaches the same levels of complexity.

RafeAU (368) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle from Plonk. Pale amber pour with small head. Strong Brettanomyces funk aroma. The flavour is more moderate than the aroma. Well balanced sour funky pale ale. Nice!

With Z, pours a dark rusty orange color with a cream colored head. Nose is hoppy with typical Belgian yeast. Taste is hoppy, not very bitter, with appreciable Belgisn yeast. Finish is bit lemony with ending notes of hop and yeast. Very nice ! Quaff Score 8 / 10

Bomber. Pours a copper orange with a beige head and tart, fruity aroma. Taste is of slightly tart fruity notes with brett, spices and yeast coming through into the long finish.
