jc1762 (154) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 31, 2015
Poured into a teku showing apricot and honey hues with very sparse head. The nose shows a lot of stone fruit (apricot, peaches, ) and brett together. The palate shows a high carbonation and medium body - a bright apricot/peach forwardness is apparent on the palate. The brett makes appearance in the background but doesn’t add any sour characteristics. There’s a constant grapefruit bitterness in the background (Same type of bitterness seen in the Siren/Prairie Ratchet Saison). This grapefruit bitterness lingers on the tongue a very long time even after the finish which makes it slightly unpleasant. But the fruit flavors and the brett give it an interesting complexity that somewhat compensate for it.

The_Osprey (2919) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
330ml bottle, BB Aug 2015. Hazy orange, lightly sparkling, no real head at all. Aroma is very bretty - lemon, apricots. Body is medium, soft carbonation, smooth. Taste is grassy hop, dry bretty lemonade. My rating is against the grain here but, what can I say? The base beer is great but it’s been pushed too far. Ruined by the brett in my opinion. Unbalanced.

Beermack (716) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 3, 2014
33cl bottle. Hazy whiteish gold. Nice citrus and brett nose, definite sweet barrel note, some juicy passion fruit and mango. Good brett funk in the taste, nice little citrus twist, mellows out into tropical juice and finishes with a good hint of that chardonnay barrel. Light in body, very thirst quenching, while being complex and interesting. Another good one from Siren.

Theis (14290) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle at Hotel Iris, Amsterdam. Clear golden/amber - white head. Nice mellow brett. Sweet fruity notes from the wine. Some light tropic fruity notes. Light malty. Very nice - good balance - high drinkability.

Beersiveknown (3746) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 9, 2014

Garrold (2345) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Just about clear, golden colour. Filmy, white head. Oily, lemon zest. Lime, too. Gooseberry, maybe. Taste is dry, tart and fairly bitter. Palate is tart, with some oiliness, emphasised by the soft carbonation. Finish is woody, tart and dry. Bung a Lost Abbey label on it and triple the price...? Very nice.
