DuffMan (6439) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle. This was so excellently excellent! Medium orange hue, hazy, bubbly lively head. Aroma is very weizenbockish with lots of bnana esters and underlying caramel, but with an assertive funky edge. Delicious soft wheaty entry, beautiful yeast esters, finishing off with a subtle bretty funk. Like the love child of a weizenbock and a bretty farmhouse ale. I could have drank this all night! Loved it.

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2013
Bottled@PBF VIII. Slightly hazy pale copper colour with a mediumsized foamy head. Aroma is quite strong on the malts, but also has some quite sugary notes along with a slight touch of sour wood and spruce. Flavour is spruce, some slight sugary notes, mild tart wooden notes along with some sweet malts. Actually quite dry in the palate, but as such not very sour. Kind of faro-like in a way.

JorisPPattyn (7773) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2012
Huge, mango-yellow head, towering over faintly veiled foxy-amber beer. Spicy hops, gingerish-citrussy cake; vinous in the way Bretts are vinous, and it would seem some lactic acid. Dry, Bretty, leathery flavours with wild fruit, dried on leather sheets. Light dry-out effect; well-bodied for a Brettanomyces beer, and quite slick, yet spritzy. Nice, original "wild" beer. I can indeed picture it, paired to certain fishcourses.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Islington - London. Many thanks to Josh! Pours lightly hazy amber with a fine, beige foam head. Some light, tangy and leathery fruits in the nose, hints of bready malts, light dough and yeast. Ripe fruits in the flavor, moderate sweetness and restrained tang, grapes, brown bread, fine raisins. Light to medium bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish with modest brown bread, ripe fruits, light yeast. Not especially sour but very tasty.

750ml bottle shared at home. Amber pour with a good white head. Very perfumed aromas, with sugar and spice notes. not much funk present. Light sour, light bitter. Lively carbonation. Medium body. Once we poured the dregs of the bottle in the glasses it improved! yeastiness picked up, and turned into something like Orval.
