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.

12.2.2015. White IPA. Clear yellow. Plenty of hops and even some lambic on the nose. Sadly it smells like pee. But tastes better. Wheat, lots of herbs, fruits, grassy bitterness.

Keg at Brewdog, Shepherd’s Bush, London. A light golden/yellow coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, malty, wheaty aroma. Tastes similar, slightly hoppy, malty, wheaty, spice. An unusual IPA but still good stuff.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Clear gold with a 1 finger white head and active carbonation. Aroma is fruity with musty Brett funk. Lemon, pineapple and guava play key roles. Taste follows pretty closely. Very strong carbonation and medium mouthfeel. This is pretty aggressive but it’s excellent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light straw/golden and clear with a medium rocky white head. Big bretty nose with funky barn tones and grassy/piney hops. Bretty and funky barn like flavor with a crisp golden malt and bitter earthy hops behind it. Basic bretty IPA, no real wheat tone that I can get. Don’t get me wrong, it’s pretty enjoyable and funky as nuts.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from Ottakringer Shop, bbf 20/11/15.
Light golden, moderate hazy body, with an average, frothy, white head.
Aroma of citrus, dough, apples, peach, spices, honey, grass, some herbs.
Taste follows this pretty much.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes bitter, dry, zesty, fruity and grassy.
Nice mix of a Saison and an IPA. Not that exceptional though in my opinion, but still refreshing, crisp and well balanced. Not the best hoppy Brett ale I’ve had, but one I wouldn’t mind drinking again.
