Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 29, 2013
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.

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.

wiedrzensky (336) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours is hazy golden with big foamy white head. Aroma is slightly sweet, citruses, light wheat, clove and apricot. Taste is medium to heavy bitter, slightly sweet, citrus notes and some wheat in background. Medium to heavy bordy, soft carbonation, long bitter finish. Good beer but I’m apparently not a fan of wheat IPA’s, one is good for me, than I’m done and I don’t need more.

Sebilinz (1112) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle. Hazy orange body with white head. Aroma is pine with some fruits. Taste is also fruity with light malts and some herbs and very light brett. Aftertaste is bitter with slight sourness. Maybe to fresh I think it should have had more time to develop more brett but nice.
