durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle from the brewery in STL. Clear amber pour with about a finger of beige head. Some lacing. Nose is soft fruits--mild peaches and apricots and a touch of apple. Some earthy action as well and a bit of spice near the end. Light bitterness.

bomber from Jeremy. not to carbonated, not to cleaner like. brett was not over the top and helped make the beer.

Lukaduke (2195) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Pours a light amber color with a finger of eggshell foam. Lots of things work in this beer but overall the parts are greater than the final product. Nice rustic grain, wet hay, straw, some funky brett, barnyard. horsehair and some solid yeast ester, apricot and honey. Something out of balance that keeps me from enjoying this beer as much as I thought I would.

JBPortland (783) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 18, 2014
750ml bottle pours cloudy dark orange with medium fluffy head. Nose is earthy wet hay, bread, and subtle doughy orange fruit. Taste is medium-thick bodied, bready fruit, earthy grains, dough, yeast spice cracker. Finish is dry bready yeasty fruit and spice, and earthy muti grain. Not a ton of brett character.

djd07 (3588) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle thanks to Rick. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy white head. The aroma is strong brett, oak, and yeast. Medium mouthfeel with strong brett, citrus, light dry fruit. Good.

suprchunk (2250) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Golden amber colored pour. Huge white head with tons of lacing. Lemony funky aroma with earthy notes. Taste is lemon bars and Brett. Sweet yet dry finish.

bleeng (1523) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Taster at the brewery. Pale gold. Very little aroma. Hops upfront with the Brett in the background. Bitter ending. Overall a decent beer.

MIBRomeo (2559) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Traditional Belgian notes. A golden pour a nice white head. A fair amount of fruit a touch juicy a bit thin on the palate but enjoyable.

NikkTwist (1631) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Draft at Eulogy. Very hazy orange amber pour with an overflowing frothy white head. Lots of lace. Line could have been tainted. Starts as a yeasty bready wheat beer but quickly shifts to darker malty notes then shocks with a sharp sourish ascetic finish. Again - could be this particular pour on a tainted line. Feels substantial but not pleasant. Promised sugary notes are drowned in nail polish remover. Horrible. But this is certainly a bad pour.

ARH (408) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2014
750 mL bottle poured into a tulip. The aroma is a funky, potent fruit and butterscotch. It pours a dull, murky copper orange / light caramel color. It’s topped by a big, stable and creamy off-white head. Lots of this creamy head retains, and it leaves a good amount of puffy clouds on the side of the glass. It’s highly sweet, lightly bitter, and has a moderate high sour kick to it. The texture is waxy and slick with a light, soapy carbonation. The medium body finishes with notes of bitter and sour citrus. It has a bit of a cider touch to it too. The aftertaste lingers with sour, tart, dry citrus notes.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle... Clear golden pour with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. Typical farmhouse, yeast-driven aroma - fruity esters and spicy phenols. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. Well-balanced, bittersweet flavor – farmhouse fruitiness, spiciness and graininess. Short, crisp, clean finish - no lingering maltiness, spiciness or bitterness. Bottle provided by biggsbowler!
