Nose of grapefruit, zest and pulp, dry. Glowing pastel golden color, cloudy, lacy. Lots of sweetness left in the flavor, more than expected. Lemon, grapefruit, yogurt, vanilla, a bit of leather. Moderately tart, woody. Mellow and silky body. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

500 ml bottle from De Hopduvel. Pours a glowing gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is really fruity and perfumy, tons of fruity bretty notes, lots of oak as well, vanilla, litchi, passion fruit, white wine undertones, light husky grain. Taste is grainy, mild bretty notes, a bit heavy fruity alcohol flavor that brings down the drinakbility, fairly complex, lots of tropical fruit, lemon zest, something is a bit harsh though, like a tough oaky tannin or husky grain flavors. Palate is a not sweet yet still a bit heavy and you can certainly feel you’re drinking 8,5% abv beer. Med carbonation, full body, semi-sweet. Pretty good drank,

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Serving: Bottle. Hazy light gold pour. Plentiful white head. Brett, light oak, dusty yeast in the nose. Very light and effervescent on the tongue. Not a whole lot of flavor in this one. Lemon pith, club soda, dusty, dry brett notes. Long, bitter finish. Very surprised at the ABV. Drinks much lighter.

Boutip (5031) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle: Poured a bright yellow color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of rustic malt with cat litter notes is quite interesting. Taste is also dominated by some rustic malt notes with funky ester and some cat’s litter notes that are quite powerful. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I really enjoyed this beer with quite a bit of complexity while retaining super great drinkability.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Fruity and lightly yeasty, with a wheaty base, and some citric acidity lasting through the finish. Nice.
