jerd16 (226) - Gloucestershire, - 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.

Batavi (169) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2015 Fles 750 ml gekocht bij biernavigatie, uitgeschonken in origineel Mikkeller Invasion Farmhouse glas, dank daarvoor nog firmabier.nl. Goudgeel troebel bier met een hoge witte schuimkraag en een structuur van kant, vrij dun, zakt redelijk snel weer weg. Bijzondere aroma’s, veel citrusfruit als sinaasappel en grapefruit, tropisch fruit als ananas en mango, florale parfums van lavendel, verder karamel en de typische brettanomyces tonen van vochtig leer en paardendeken. Het smaakpallet is bitterzoet en zurig waarbij deze elkaar perfect in balans houden. Fruitige smaken van grapefruit en ananas, de brettanomyces gist, met tonen van leer, pijnboom en aardachtige tonen. Het smaakpallet is prachtig gebalanceerd met een levendige carbonatie en een licht bittere droge finish. Voor mij de beste IPA tot nu toe, erg lekker. Deed me ook enigszins denken aan de Belgische bieren Orval en Houppe, een aanrader deze IPA van Mikkeller en Anchorage Brewing Company, ook het design van de fles is heel bijzonder.

4/3/15. 750mL bottle shared by Tim, I believe. Golden orange pour with a nice khaki head, mild lacing. Good aroma, nice Brett funk, mild tartness, tropical fruits, some citrus. Okay flavor, bitter, a bit minerally, mild funk and fruitiness. Not bad.

Hazy gold pour, with quite a bit of sediments. Smells very much like lemon curd and dry. Jammy flavour, with citrussy notes and dryness. Quite well carbonated and full-bodied. Nice Palate!

Delicious. Heady and funky with a long-lasting bitterness of pine and grass from the hops, pineapple at the first taste and subtle brett tang.

mjs (5372) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2015
(Bottle, 0.75 l, at laiti’s, 20150613) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had pine, grass and mildly tartness. Palate was medium bodied with rather high carbonation. Flavours were grass, pine, sourness, malts, tartness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sour, hoppy and bitter. A tasty hoppy and sour brew.

750ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Pale orange. Simple saisony aroma. Ditto taste. Cleanish. A bit of a herbal aspect. Pretty boring funky ipa, a classic case of "chuck in a brett cube". But not actually bad in any way, just unimaginative. Did cover the alcohol quite well, although the palate did get a bit heavy and heady at times.

Marduk (4071) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 19, 2015
750ml bottle @Laiti’s thanks. Hazy golden color. Small size, white head, stays. Malty, grains, some hops, yeasty aroma. Smells like typical nowaday saison. Yeasty, fruity, marmalade, farmhouse dusty taste. Fruity marmalade mixed with yeast in aftertaste. Crisp mouthfeel. Grainy bitterness.
