Tranquillity (1789) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2016
Canned, 9% ABV "Hoppy belgian-inspired golden ale". Hazy yellow-orange body, huge off-white head. Nutty aroma with citrus. The taste is earthy, with nuts and a smooth finish. No alcohol taste, just like a real belgian!

lupulist (140) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2016
Pours a pale amber colour with an offwhite head. Aroma is very vinous and bretty. Lovely wine barrel character, developed Brett funk, and some hops on the finish. Big creamy mouthfeel. So much going on, but so balanced.

fiulijn (18725) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2016
Tasting at Mattís; cork; 10% ABV
Cloudy blond color, generous head. Very nice aroma, funky, a bit fruity too. Nice body strength; astringency is the main character, Brett presence is huge, and it has a lot of bitter orange, and a mild vinous character. A bit dirty, but to be fair the bottle was shaken.
Aggressive, very nice.

Ferris (12419) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle - Funky sweet and almost anise like notes. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Sweet, bitter and funky with some nice barrel notes. Decent.

mcberko (14016) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2016
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a medium white head. Aroma is lovely, with very complex yeasts, lots of brett, a little dry oak from the chardonnay, and funk. Flavour is extremely complex, with loads of barnyard funk upfront, followed by oaky chardonnay, and a fairly subdued but definitely present tartness. Complex, wonderfully balanced and dynamic. Fantastic stuff.

DuffMan (9498) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2016
Tall can, shared with TylerDurden. Whatís "the O.D.B."? Old Dirty Bastard? I donít know, maybe Iím missing the obvious. Anyway, this was a really great brew! Very hazy golden yellow with a lively white head that left gobs of lace. Interesting profile: quite vinous but with a deep funk, and a lemony tartness, and some peppery green notes as well. Very compelling, complex and delicious.

Kauge (1557) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 11, 2016
Tap at Bar Volo. The blackboard says 10%. Pours translucent bright golden with scattered and smallish off-white head. The aroma... woooooohh, incredible, sweeet candied fruits, grapey sour of the Chardonnay, some Turkish-made watermelon-flavoured bubblegum I remember from my late-Soviet childhood. And at points even minty herbal... Tastes almost as good but the bitterness is a bit too much. The minty herbal notes transfer from the aroma to flavour, plus the sourish grapes. Kinda watery on the palate it seems, with mellow carbonation and dry funky-ish finish. The aroma really blew my mind but the rest doesnít live up to that even though itís all round a great BA brew. Perhaps one of the best Chardonnay-barreled brews Iíve had. A notch up from the original version, which I loved as well.

Freaky_tiki (1031) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2016 2015 vintage. $15 bottle (2000 bottle run). Decants a beautiful hazed topaz with a thick mushy cap. Busy bouquet: imperial saison goodness, white grapes & other fruit. Fantastic tasting beer. Swirls of white wine, apricot, orchard fruit & some really nice funk. The barrel plays a leading role here. Highly drinkable, with a crisp finish, lots of depth & a 10% abv that lurks in the shadows. High level brewing.

Niall73 (2419) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Tap at barhop. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Lightly sour, lemony floral aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Lots of white wine, grass, lemon, apple, melon, pear candy, hint of pepper and clove... Lightly sour, maybe slightly too winey, but it's tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
