satan165 (1019) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2009
nose of huge citrus sour fruits, pure west coast IPA. appeararance is very cloudy amber. flavor is of strong resiny hops and a touch of funk in the background that comes stronger late. after a few more tastes i find that both ride side by side but the hops tend to clobber the brett, as they do with most of their sparring partners. brett and hops to this level has not been done before that i know of....however i am eager to try the other version at this point with more sudued, classic hops then this bitter-bomb as i predict the barnyard with be much more substantial.

nimbleprop (4758) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Sampled a bottle brought by Argo0. Thanks Aaron. Pours a copper orange with a cloudy white head. Grassy aroma with grapefruit, slightly sweet too. An aroma of pine came out once the beer warmed a bit. Flavor has sweet malts, caramel, slight citrus, fruit. The hops are subtle in the flavor but hard on the nose and finish.

sunevdj (3152) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2009
Pours a clearish amver with an off-white head. Dry with strong hoppy aroamas of American hops. Citrusy and hints of plant sap. I can’t spot much funkyness (good). Highish carbonation. Medium to full bodied. Dry finish.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2009
Bottle at the legend of chriso’s pre GBBF09 tasting. Alround rating: American hops in the nose, good light body but unfortunatly massivly carbonated which makes it fairly hard to drink. I went back and had a second sample of this after about half an hour and it was still over carbonated. Too much yeast!!

nuplastikk (4322) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2009
DC Gathering, 750ml bottle courtesy of ArgoO. Amber-brown color, lacy soapy head. Sweet and funky dark fruit aroma, maybe a touch of wheat. Earthy bitter flavor, some solid astringent hoppiness. Definite wild yeast characteristics, funky and all over that spectrum. Almost fruity, in a liqueur type way. Complex, with a nice sour edge.

SilkTork (5187) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2009
Chriso Shindig Aug 2009. Lots of orange peel - but too intense. Touch of sulpher. Some sweetness. Drinkable, but not really my thing.

At Chriso’s pre GBBF Shindig ’09. Amber with a large white head. Floral hops in the aroma, with some pine. Sweet mandarin and malt balance the grapefruit bitterness. My final beer of the gathering, and a worthy conclusion.
