4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
I loved this beer so much that I had several samples of it at the GABF. If you want a beer that you would consider strange and funky, then this is your brew. It does not taste like anything else that I have ever had. And I love the aroma, I guess that is the brett, whatever it is, it smells strange and weird and I like it. Tied for my favorite beer of the GABF 2004 with its stablemate, Le Woody.

Hade nog lite höga förväntningar här kanske. Lite saisonvibbar. Koriander kanske? Viss sötma

750ml bottle shared by CaptainCougar. Pours a hazy, deep gold. Looks like pineapple juice. Nose is herbal, peppery, pineapple, lightly horsey, fruity. Flavor is tart, fruity, herbal, orange pulp, hay, lemon. Full bodied, but also soft finish.

750 mL bottle very generously shared by CaptainCougar. Thanks! Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized frothy tan head that quickly fades. Aroma of big brett notes, citrus, tropical fruits, melon and a little funk. The taste is tart citrus, brett, berries, caramel malts and pale bready malts. Medium bodied. Quite refreshing.

Big thanks to CaptainCougar for this whale!! Clear gold with huge carbonation, bottle from the original batch. Apple flesh, lactic tartness, pear, earth cheesecloth abound on the nose. The flavor brings white peach, tannic champagne, with a beautiful dry finish. It’s held up pretty damn well I would say.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Huge, huge thanks to CaptainCougar for this very longtime want. Original batch. Served in a snifter. The pour yields a well-carbonated straw-golden-colored brew with a nice white head that falls somewhat quickly, leaving a bit of lacing behind. The nose is quite complex, filled with notes of hay and grass atop some green apple, pineapple, and lemon. Wheaty dryness comes through the nose, though apparently wheat wasn’t used in this brew. The spices are gone, but the Brett notes have really come to the forefront and are absolutely delicious. Straw and some lemon and pineapple notes come through. Earthy character in the background. Body is light-medium with a very dry finish. Absolutely exquisite. Was thrilled to finally see this bottle and it absolutely delivered. Thanks again!

honey good, thin white head fizzles out quick. Nose is honey pineapple, bit of sawdust. Flavor is more skin, mineral and ultra dry champagne consistency, bit sweet and at front. Bit empty, but I like palate and light mineral profile.

750mL original batch. Mega whale thanks to CaptainCougar. Slow gusher. Over carbonated. Rich, rocky head head diminishes quickly. Rich white wine and lemon sorbet nose. Baked cherries and grilled pineapple. Taste is aerated, neutral. Mild boozy heat in the backend. Super minerally and dry palate. Refreshing. Simple. Brett complexities in the nose. Mild acid in taste. A bit bland.

Thanks tom! Huge cheesy herbals and juicy fruit leads to dank horsey farm manure. Very well preserved carbonation with a funky finish.

Slightly hazy pale yellow pour. Really funky, doughy aroma with notes of lemon. Really light and easy dry beer. Notes of peach and apricot. Doughy finish. Light tartness. Pretty good.

Pale straw with a fluffy white head. I was expecting some crazy funk here but this was a fantastic balance of funk and tart sour. Mild lemony, slight citrus. Thanks to Dak for the chance at this one.
