Belgian pale & pilsner malts w/ Styrian Golding for bittering and Saaz for aroma. Ginger predominates the spicing. Fermented in primary with Ommegang’s house yeast, followed by secondary with Brettanomyces bruxellensis. Dry-hopped in secondary w/ a blend of hops; Tettnang being the stand-out. The flavor profile is very herbal with an earthy undertone (very fitting for a Belgian-style farmhouse ale). The dry finish and pronounced hop aromas hide the 8% abv very well. Dangerously drinkable for its strength and character.

750ml C&C bottle thanks to footbalm (batch #1, June 2007)
Appearance: Holy carbonation batman, the cork flew out as I was twisting off the cage. Luckily only a small amount of the good stuff came out. Pours slightly hazy yellow with a big frothy white head and lots of sticky lacing
Aroma: Brett, ripe fruit, spices and citrus
Taste: Light mouthfeel of citrus, peppery, barnyard, herbal with a tart dry finish
Very nice, refreshing and enjoyable.

Batch #4...pours a hazy amber with a medium foamy white head. Aroma has a mild sweet citrus...orange...and notable ginger...some caramely malt. Flavor has some spice up front...ginger...with some yeasty, fruity notes and tea-like hops. Mouthfeel is light and silky and the finish is slightly malty and spicy...dry. I noticed no brett qualities...mildly disappointing.

Bouteille de 750ml, bouchon de liège. Merci Julien et Pier-Luc. Bière qui a la couleur du jus de pomme non-filtrée ou de jus d’orange. Le nez semble envahie par les bretts et les pommes. La bouche est agréable, le goût de pomme est agréable et les bretts sont tout aussi envahissant. Une vraie funkhouse ale avec des bretts.

Bottle at Iceland super tasting. Cidery hazy gold pour with white head. Aroma of brett, cider, grain, saison and funk. Taste is quite bretty/funky with some apple juice flavors (a bit off here). Palate is dry and well carbed, good stuff.

2009 batch 2 750, saison yeast dominant in the aroma, flavor is saison yeast up front and a strong nuance of Brett that really adds charmingly. Awesome job guys. Some light bitterness on finish.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2011
Batch #4, May 2009. 750 mL bottle from Siciliano’s Market in Grand Rapids, served in a snifter. Pours hazy copper with a moderate tan head. The head mostly remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of toasty malts, pale fruit, ginger, pepper, touches of Brettanomyces, hops, herbs and earth. The flavour is moderately honey sweet with slight sour and bitter notes. There is also dust, pale fruit, orange peel, ginger and pepper. The finish is drier, with more prominent ginger. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a very interesting brew, at once sweet and syrupy, while being also spicy and somewhat funky. Truly unique. 2011-08-23

Batch #4 Bomber from 2009. Pours cloudy orange with foamy white head. Aromas of earth, basement, lemon, floral, pepper. Mild-moderately sour and bitter. Overall, the beer is interesting, but I found something mildly unpleasant with the back end taste.

750ml bottle, corked and caged. Pours a lovely deep golden orange with a one finger frothy white head. Head recedes to leave rings of sticky lace. Lots of funk in the aroma, although, not as strong as I expected. Tart and sour elements as well as some ginger spice. Flavor is simultaneously fruity and funky. Orange peel, lemon peel, cherries, pears, all with Brett and Ommegang’s house yeast. Tough to describe. Light in body with sharp, active carbonation.

portableparty (2293) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Batch #2 march 2008. Pour cloudy golden yellow with a huge fluffy white head that lasts. Aroma is the best part about this brew with nice florals and sweet bubblegum with faint must. Taste is very dry musty with notes of sour funk sweet faded juicyfruit and a bitterness throughout. Palate is medium and full carbonation with a lasting dry finish. This is a fairly tasty brew, but after getting the aroma I was hoping for more. The alcohol also shows quite a bit in the end.
