Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy brown with no head. The aroma is spice, maple, and dark fruits. Medium mouth with sweet potato, brown sugar, caramel and maple, odd but good.

Large sample pour of murky dark amber. Nose is funk with some seasonal fall spices. Flavor holds to the yams and cinnamon but finishes with moderate tartness and malt. Light zest notes of Belgian yeast but fairly subdued in the back. Almost some apple notes in the finish also. Drinkable, somewhat enjoyable also. Held up over the years

Oof. I tried this beer fresh and couldn’t pick up much Brett flavor at all, so I decided to set a couple bottles down to let the funk develop. All the bacteria seem to have done, however, is autolyzed. There’s a ton of oxidized dark honey flavor mixed with teriyaki and Worcester. The sweet base flavors are still apparent -- maple, brown sugar, apple cider. Mild Belgian yeast character, nice and fruity. The base, as always, is nice, but buried under all the oxidized and autolyzed flavors. At this point, this beer would be good as a steak marinade, but not much else.

"I was expecting a ton of bretty goodness in this one and was a little let down in that regard. a little of the original beer comes thorugh, mainly the yams, but it’s not exactly exploding with barnyard goodness. a bit muddled, but still tasty...a little spice, yams, dry from the brett with a hint of sourness. good, but not worth the extra $."

Bottle. Hazy rust colored brown pour with a scattering of tan bubbles. Pie crust, spice, yam, and dry brett in the aroma. Taste is soggy, flavorless potatoes with mild, generic spice and watery brett. Disjointed mouthfeel. Man, this smelled really good and tasted so bad!

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
In short: A lot of spices clashing with a dirty armpit-funk character and other off flavors. A mess of a beer.
How: Bottle 750ml shared pre-HF FoFA 2013 tasting.
The look: Cloudy dirty dark golden body topped by a beige ring of foam.
In long: The strange off-putting nose is spicy and with a dirty leathery funk character. No sign of maple or other here, just a puzzling blend of spices and sweaty funk. Mouthfeel is basic big Belgian ale, very full body and with a moderately lively carbonation. Taste improves a bit on the aroma but it is still not good. Medium to heavy sweet, a lot of spices (cinnamon and friends), overripe decaying apples, some caramel, leather, unsalted sweaty armpit, strange potatoes-like vegetable notes. Some strange unpleasant stuff developed in this, this was probably the wrong beer for all-brett fermentation. Another failed Bruery experiment. The fact that Jellyfishes have existed for over 500 millions of years with basically no brain should be considered an excellent news for Bruery Reserve Society members .

Gedronken met countbeer en dutchdrebus. Koperkleurig bier, geen schuimkraag. Ruikt naar kaneel, veel kruiden, scrobbelaer. Smaakt kruidig, zoet, fruitig.

Haslinger (866) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2013
750mL bottle shared with kegbear, pours a nice red brown, smells like a fresh baked pumpkin pie with a hint of booze thrown in, the taste is sweet yam, just like some delicious southern sweet potato pie. Some sweet molasses in the finish. Tastes like Thanksgiving dinner should be. Wonderful beer!

75cl bottle pours with a murky amber body that has some ruby red hues and supports a brief tan head. The aroma offers up smooth sweetness, molasses and a thin soft vinegar note. The taste achieves a pleasing balance of smooth slick molasses and syrupy prunes and lightly earth sweetness mixing with soft smooth vinegar and light sugar sweetened soured citrus sort of sensation. This is dangerously drinkable with this kind of even balance. Nice!

750 ml bottle. Pours a darker amber with a beige head. Aroma is sweet and musty. Almost cider-like.
