jerohen (2156) - Bussum, - JUN 3, 2012
Bottled from Biernavigatie.nl. Dark amber colored, small disappearing white head. Very unusual sour nose, fruity, brett. Sour flavor, brett again, fruity notes, very low carbonation. Extremely short finish. Very unbalanced brew, actually tastes as if something went wrong during the brewing process.

Piana spora, mydlana, postrzępiona, otwieraniu towarzyszył gushing. Barwa bursztynowa, lekko opalizująca, z drobnymi pęcherzykami gazu. Aromat intensywny i przyjemny, są tu zarówno nuty nowofalowego chmielu, dzikich drożdży jak i słodowej podstawy. W smaku wyraziste, delikatna słodycz owoców tropikalnych, troszkę karmelu, rodzynek, żywicy, cytrusów, kandyzowanych owoców... W tle delikatne nuty funky i siana, średnia goryczka, grejpfrutowo pikantna. Wysycenie średnie, drobne, piwo nieźle pijalne z delikatnie rozgrzewającym alkoholem.
Ciekawy, udany trunek, ale na pewno nie jest to BSA, jak stara się nas przekonać ratebeer. Dla mnie to takie Funky Red Ale (z dodatkiem brettów).

Franckg (987) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 22, 2016
Bouteille avec un BB du 28/10/2021. Robe ambrée plutôt claire avec un beau col de mousse blanchâtre onctueux et persistant. Arômes de levures sauvages, léger funk, zeste d’orange poivré, malt caramelisé, sucre brun, abricot. En bouche, bretts présentant des saveurs florales et de jus d’abricot, malt caramelisé avec un fini boisé et sec. Quelques notes poivrées, zeste d’orange, houblons herbacés, légère résine de pin et autres levures belges. Texture huileuse et sèche, corps moyen. Très bien.

Aroma is caramel/caramel malts, sugar/candy and Brett. The flavor is fruit/tropical fruit, sugar/candy, malts, light hops and a mix of tart, slight sweetness and a mild bitterness in the finish.

RickTheRick (892) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2016
Un champignon atomique de mousse jette son dévolu sur une bière cuivrée plutôt cristalline où pataugent librement de fines bulles agitées. Cette mousse s’estompe toutefois promptement et laisse quelques traces sur les parois du verre. Des parfums d’houblons herbacés et floraux dominent le bouquet et sont soutenus par des céréales mielleuses et une légère impression minérale et poussiéreuse, gracieuseté des brettanomyces. Les levures sauvages expriment une belle rusticité en bouche, mais la bière n’est pas aussi "funky" que je l’anticipais. Les houblons ont donc la chance de briller et de déclencher une amertume toute délicate. Une présence sucrée discrète apporte une certaine rondeur fort agréable. Au niveau olfactif et gustatif, le profil de la USAlive! est assez similaire à celui de la sempiternelle Orval.

czar (7361) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2016 pours unclear medium dark golden, bright orange, with a nice creamy off-white head offering some lacing too. band aid bretts, very spicy oranges, candied oranges, pickled apricots wit cloes; pot-pourri, lots of piney booze, assertive herbal-resinous hops, wild strawberry fruitiness as well, lots of pepper and peppers also. moderate carbonation, medium body; warming, spicy bittering resinous finish. some complexity - akin to others from same series - yet a US-like harshness prevails. still nice.
