Scopey (5529) - Croydon, Greater London, - FEB 1, 2013
Tap at Mikkeller. It pours clear golden amber with a small white head. The nose is hay, tangy citrus, sherbert, waxy orange and grapefruit. The taste is earth, light tartness, pepper, minerals, waxy lemon, grapefruit, spice, with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty tasty.

Amber-orange with a disappearing weak head. Some sweaty aroma, some barnyard and very earthy. Taste is dry, very bretty, a bit grass, doughy, with some fruit inputs, rhubarb, grapefruit, again very earthy. Dry and pretty high carbonation.

solidfunk (3007) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 4, 2014
A little better than the Brussels bretta version. More of a palate and mouthful here with that astringent, bittersweet grapefruit lambic flavour. Nice yeast, and it’s cool that the hops still show up in enough quality to be detected here. Citrus hops and a little malt. Well-balanced. Great pale ale on wild side. Tap at Churchkey.

skoisirius (1467) - Earth, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Can’t say this one really did anything for me, sadly. Bottled. Looks like a pale ale. Smells like a slightly bretted pale ale. Drinks like a watery slightly bretted weak pale ale. Could’ve been a lot better.

Bottle. Clear copper with a medium sized good lacing white head. Aroma has dust, mold, neutral soap, citrus, gooseberries. Pretty light on the palate, light creamy texture, Light dry and bitter finish. I prefer the Bruxellensis version.
