Hermod (3569) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2013
33cl bottle. bbe 04/12/14. Hazy amber, almost copper with a thick white head. Exotic fruity hoppy aroma, light funkyness. Flavor has gooseberry, grapefruit and some caramel. Licorice in the dry finish. Not much bretta noticeable.

Humlenik (31) - DENMARK - FEB 22, 2013
Wonderful floral, fruity aromas. Golden, clear, minimal head. Lightly bitter and sour but yet an undefinable taste. Light body, oily feel, soft carbonation and a long, bitter and smooth finish (coating). Taste is a bit disappointing.

This beer is from the yeast series. It’s interesting that it doesn’t taste as much of hops as the others and good for the balance

Very nice Brett beer with fruity and fresh aromas such as peaches and grapes. Perhaps my personal favourite in the whole yeast series.

FlemmingBo (66) - DENMARK - FEB 22, 2013
(Smagt sammen med de fem andre øl i denne yeast serie.) Er en smule skuffet over denne, set i lyset af saisonen og Bruxellensis på både duft og smag. Det er dog stadig en særdeles fin øl med en fin balance mellem sødme, humlebitterhed og gærens surhed.

thiesen (177) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2013
Tasted alongside the rest of the series and compared directly with the Lambicus. I’ve expected that it would be more characteristic than the Brux. More sweet funky yeast than fresh and sour. Melon. Taste is sweet and dry, fruity.

brokensail (11854) - 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 (6153) - 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.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2013
On tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Cloudy orange pour wit ha white head. Aroma is funky barnyard, citrus zest, a bit of hoppiness and some good sour twang. Flvaor is bitter, funky, slightly hoppy, big citrus lemon notes all underlying a good funky tart zest. Interesting beer. Tasty.

Tap at Max’s Taphouse. Pours clear light orange with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is earthy and barnyard yeast with citrus hops, tropical fruity esters and biscuit malt. Flavor is medium hops and, earthy and barnyard yeast with fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.
