2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clearish pale golden pour covered by a healthy white foam. Despite all its components, hops remain the dominant feature, throwing fragrant citrus and earth laden aromas at the nose. In mouth, it feels a bit loose, kinda oily and very dry, combining with the hops to the point of astringency, with a powdery, mineral tang... altogether, frankly a bit rough when the bitterness is anything but subtle. At the same time, it’s thin. One of those rare beers in which I feel a little more body and sugars would be welcome, making the edges smoother. Here, the dryness frmo the brett is noticeable, but the flavours, I would not have guess any wild yeast in there if I’d not read it previously. As for the wheat, in this thinness and hop slaughter, it is quickly forgotten. Perhaps if I’d gotten to try it when it was really fresh, I’d have been satisfied with a focus on awesome fresh hops, but alas, a beer brewed in Belgium by Danes and exporter all over the US starts with a few strikes when trying to attempt just what seems reasonable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
