brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Orange in color with a white head. The nose is musty and much more funky than the Brett Brux version. A bit sweaty, some lemon, grapefruit, bread, and grass. Interesting blend of sweet, funk, and tart on the palate. Lemon zest, grapefruit, musty funk, earth, sweat, and sweet bread. A little bit of yeast, a dry finish, and grass.

laiti (5573) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2013
33 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori, BBE 04.12.2014
Aroma is somewhat stale with urinal cake, fruity hops, grapefruit and gooseberry bush. Flavour has grapefruit, biscuits, gooseberry bush and some nettles. Hard to note the bretta aromas here, perhaps some leathery notes in the aftertaste and hints of urinal cake.

marcus (6365) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours copper with a thick beige head and a slight;y sour fruity aroma. There is a funky bitter caramel flavor with a mildly sour finish. Mostly a failed experiment, but still maybe drinkable.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2013
Semicloudy golden. Offwhite head. Not as intense aroma as the brux version. Still sour fruity aroma, but this one feels sweeter. Taste is also alot ’kinder’ to us non-hardcore-sourale-drinkers. Sweet and fruity, better than the three others I tried (lager, saison and brux)

BoringBard (139) - NORWAY - FEB 12, 2013
Sweat fruity sour aroma. Dark golden brown with white head. Sour, apples, earthy and sweet. Thin and disappears quickly ass the rest of the series. Like this one.

Japalo (1146) - DENMARK - FEB 12, 2013
Bottle@præstemosen. Two finger foam. Clear copper. Citrus fruity notes. Not as intense as the brux. Interesting to compare the two Brett. Prefer the brux.
