Marduk (2472) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2014
750ml bottle. Light brown color. Tiny to almost no head. Sourish, malty, fruity aroma. Grapefruit, grainy, wheat, sour notes in taste. It’s not you its me. You just can’t arouse me :(

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Flowers, lemons, cereals and brettanomyces ride boastful effervescence in this otherwise dry and quenching Wild Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A stable pillow of foam sits atop the cloudy pale whitish yellow.
-Corn and rice add just enough depth without taking too much room in the flavour profile.
-The brettanomyces and resinous hop finish are well levelled with the agreeable intensity of the flavour profile.
-The flavour profile could be a bit better polished (if I need to find something to improve somewhere).

Bottle.

Color oro palido turbio con espuma blanca algo jabonosa. Aromas herbales de levadura muy potente y fresco ligeramente afrutada. En boca es ligera y bien carbonatada con toques afrutados ligeros pero sobre todo el toque herbal. Buena.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Very pale lemony yellow, very hazy, topped by a lively white head. Beautiful funky Brett and light citrus, with pungent green potty hop character. Dry and light, but beautiful flavours. Love the Brett in here! Outstanding.

Braudog (5576) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Nice, light-colored pour, golden, opaque, with a big toppy head. The aroma is thick with intrigue ... big time brewer’s yeast up front, with a hint of tropical fruit lingering in the back. The beer drinks with a big mouthfeel, and the same characteristics in the palate ... thick, frothy bacterial yeast up front, with a bit of fruit lingering in the background. (#5320, 11/8/2013)
