neongolden (847) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2015
(330ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Oct 1 2015) Pours a hazy gold with a moderate white head and lace. The nose is fruity and tart, with a dusty sort of yeasty undertone. Notes of apricot, tangerine, kumquat, grapefruit, mango and light pine. Taste has that typical Brett IPA tartness with apricot, mandarin peel, pine needles and unripe mango. A bit of sweet clean pale malt. From the middle through the finish it becomes quite apricot heavy with tart fruit and bitter skin, as well as a bit of pine and resin. Moderately bitter with the tart, very lightly funky finish I associate with all-Brett IPAs. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Nothing revelatory here but it’s a solid, fresh and fruity all-Brett IPA, flavourful and refreshing.

On tap at bundobust leeds, it was the perfect drink to go with their street style Indian food, funk from the yeast, and a well balanced flavour.

ciocanelu (248) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 26, 2015
Golden color with a bit of haze and a huge white head. Aroma has definitely some funk going on. Clear brett smell overwhelms all other components. Taste starts with some light bitterness and yeast notes and finishes with a pretty harsh bitterness. Hops are in the earthy, grassy area, not very aromatic. The beer lets the brett characters shine more. Overall it’s very enjoyable beer. I would be curious to see how it tastes with some age on it.

Bottle. Light straw color with good foam. Aroma: citrus and set of tropical fruits (mango, passion fruit and other exotic), pine, black currant and a hint of sourness. Taste: malt mixed with tropical fruits and citrus, dry, good bitterness.

Čapované v Lokal Pube. Svetlo žltá kalná farba, hustá dobre držiaca pena, krásne krúžkuje, nasládlá, cukríková aróma. Nižšia rezkosť, plná chuť, slad, pšenica, chmeľ. Trochu masláďé, cukríková dochuť. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden, frothy snow white head. Funky aroma, lemon and fruity hops. Similar flavour, citric and bittersweet. Slightly creamy mouthfeel but still pretty dry. Gets a little rough.
