4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Une brute d’assemblage (la bouteille indique 11.03%) avec un brett bien cuiré et gras comme j’aime mais avec un côté vineux vraiment tranchant. Des zest de lime et de citron envahissent la zone de dégustation. J’aurais aimé un corps moins actif mais les saveurs et l’alcool sont si bien intégrés que ça jamais été un facteur de dépréciation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a finger of fizzy foam. On the nose its sweet with lots of fruit notes, peach, lemon, pineapple, candied oranges, smarties candy, tree sap, grass... lots going on here just a bit overwhelming. The palate is complex but a touch disjointed... one end is a lot of the sweet fruit and tart candied smarties.. the other end is funky brett, sappy spruce and pine. Complex and interesting but lacking a bit of harmony when all is said and done.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On the verge of exceptional. Think if there was a soured table beer. This is it! Light golden pour, slight foamed white head. Lovely light notes of champagne, funk, spices, and applely pear cider on the nose. Slight tart meets dirt and barnyard on the palate. Funk, sweet white wine, lemon, aged hop, champagne, and cider all over the palate, politely, never overbearing. Effervescent. A dainty mouthful. Hints of oak come out a bit more towards the finish. Pricey beverage at $25.99 a 750ml, but I’d do it again. Loud, quietly. Seem to be enjoying that maturity in a brew these days...

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is batch 2, bottled 27SEP12
Pours a light straw yellow with a fine white sheet. Nose orgy. So, I’ve never had sex in my nose, but this is like being educated by someone well adapted to teaching different angles, speeds, depths, etc. So, up front, the manure funk, nice something I can’t finger - maybe a bit of anise/wormwood character with a bit of soaked wood. Super complex nose. A nice farm character, really deep character. There’s a good fantome, hill farmstead depth to this beer. Thin bodied with a fine, velvety carb and an ambitiously intriguing finish. Kinda dry, kinda cloying. There is a touch of sweetness.
Certainly this is a wild ale, but not in the "traditional" sense - really insane, not tart/sour like most expect. If you though BRUX was fun and interesting, this will blow your goddam cranium to pieces.
