lefossoyeur (430) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
Golden/Copper with a generous whit head. Intense brett aromas, leathery, pharmaceutical, with some fruityness. Light bodoed, lively carbonation, leathery, rose oil, leafy. Ends on a nice floral finale. Not sure I could drink more than one glass of this stuff, but it’s an interesting brett IPA.

jerd16 (132) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2014
Dangerous pop when cork released, almost broke bro’s nose. Crazy carbonation produced gigantic head, it dissipates gradually. Aroma is more hippo s**house than farmhouse. Some dank urine, plastic, underneath BOLD brett. Some lemon and funk. Brett dominates flavor profile, some pine resin, citrus, lemon sherbet are playing cameo roles. Lasting astringent soapy bitterness in the finish. I think this is more ’Brett bottled with IPA’. Some positive qualities lie in its ebullience, but it’s very much an acquired taste...and smell.

caesar (4721) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2014
Bottled @ ZZT 9, small sample. Bit hazy golden color, medium head. Aroma of bubblegum, brett, bit flowery hop. Bit bitter in taste, bit dry. Like an Orval, which I like.

Benzai (6440) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2014
Bottle @ ZZT 9 thanks to Abijen. Unclear orange color, average sized decently lasting off-white head. Smell and taste malts, decently bitter, obviously brett. Resembles orval a bit. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Gerbeer (1500) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with moderate head. Aromas of lemons, honey, light funk, and melons. Flavors of are similar but funk goes to high tending overall to wet wool and gym socks. Great start on the nose but the old socks overpower all other flavors.

Duchammer (29) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - MAR 29, 2014
It was a nice refreshing beer. I didn’t get really peppery Ness that I figured I would with a farmhouse ale. Didn’t get any hops in the nose mostly brett but hops were apparent in the beer.

KyotoLefty (5914) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle at Asayahi. Funky grapefruit nose, barnyard, lemon. Cloudy orange color. Flavors of grapefruit, peaches, bready malt, caramel, apples, funk. Nice but a bit too young and far, far too gassy.

CapFlu (4370) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Large pop and highly active carbonation. Pours a large frothy white head atop an active, carbonated clear light gold body. Nose is highly yeasty, peppery and filled with green leaf. Great Brett front, with a strong IPA base. Nail polish and apple cider finish. Delicious, but not worth the price. Purchased at Cascadia Liquor (Quadra) in Victoria, for $22. Sampled at 12*C in a tulip glass.
