Clear brown in color with almost no head. Aroma is dominated by Belgian yeast character (fruity/clove-y). Not perceiving any thing in the nose other than the "spices’ listed. Maybe maple sugar... The taste is also dominated by the yeast. Fruity and spicy with a bit of malt character to tone that down. Not my style but pretty good in my estimation.

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 (5960) - 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 (865) - 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!

Ibrew2or3 (6788) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 29, 2013
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!

JStax (2860) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a darker amber with a beige head. Aroma is sweet and musty. Almost cider-like.

emacgee (3986) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Pours a clean and clear ruby orange with a head that doesn’t want to stick around. Nose is rich and kind of sweet and spicy with some oxidized notes. Lots of body and sweet malt/yam flavor. Oxidized malt and meh flavors. Tons of body.

merc7186 (1999) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2013
The beer pours decent with a solid hazy reddish brown hue, a mild white ring of head, and mild lacing on the glass. The beer smells great with a nice blend of maple, yams, raisins, mild plum, and definitely brett. The beer tastes great with yams and maple syrup prominent...you get the brett all over the flavor too. The mouthfeel is decent with a definite sweet bitterness from the yams and maple and the beer was well carbonated. Overall, you definitely get brett all over the beer, a solid fall beer.

libertine (194) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2013
pours burgundy with a huge head that quickly dissipates. first thing I get when I put my nose to the glass is a huge burst of yeast. smell is strong of cinnamon and nutmeg. molasses and maple are in the background of the aroma. as the beer warms the maple and molasses seem to be coming out more and balance the cinnamon and nutmeg. flavor is everything the label describes yams, molasses, maple and spice and has a slight tartness for a sour. once again as the beer warmed it became much more pleasant to drink. i had this in my refrigerator at about 40 degrees. I see that on the bottle it says to serve at 55. I would definitely suggest anyone who drinks this follows this. I actually raised my ratings as this beer warmed. medium body, low carbonation and stjcky mouthfeel. finish is at first sweet and then becomes acidic. didn’t like it at first but as it warmed this is a pretty damn good beer.

It’s very nice to know someone has your back. Mike shared this with me. I had been wanting to try this for a long time. Yam, muted brett, pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg. A lot of delicious spices. Right up my alley. Smooth minimal carbonation if any. A little vegetal and licorice in the finish.
