Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing. The aroma is bretty with herbal and fruity notes. Medium-bodied with flavors of floral yeast, funky fruit and malt. The finish is moderately tart with a sour grape and citrus aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Bright and lively is right. Brightly funky, a little winey and oak. Low bitterness and some lemon and grape tartness in both flavor and aroma. A classic contemplative yet sessionable beer. Loved it."

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Pours murky and golden with a short-lived, fizzy, white head. The complex aroma is a fruity, herbal and funky intermingling of pale grains, citrus acidity, earthy fallen oak, English lavender and leather. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is a mélange of sweet pale malts, lightly tart acidity and bright herbal notes. Short, citric, snappy finish. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

Bottle with a big cheers to Bruce for one of my favourite’s of the night. Pours hazy golden with a big fluffy white head. Nose is big, sweet tropical fruits - so much mango, melon, passionfruit and mandarin, with moderate and balanced funk and lime juice. Very juicy and appealing stuff. Taste is citric juice, huge mango and tangerine, quite zesty and funky. Big, bright fruits behind the barnyard notes of funk, nice mild spice. Absolutely quaffable stuff. Very approachable sour. Fantastic

Tasting at the pad of the ever gracious Bruce and cheers to him for this one. Hazy gold beer, small white head. Smooth palate, fresh with nice fine carbonation. Delightfully light and smooth malt. Very light floralness. Mellow orange - tangerine. Finishes smooth with more fine csrbonation. Joins up really well in to light, tasty and very drinkable beer.

Bottle thanks to Vasili ! Shared with the Oxbow crew. Pours a nice golden color with a touch of hazy and a fluffy white tight bubbled foam. The nose is round with traces of salinity, dusty grass, buttery toasted vanilla and a bit of horseblanket. The palate follows the nose with nice integration of chardonnay notes with classic brett funk. Lemon, straw, pineapple, vinous acidity. Nice rustic background graininess, a bit light on carbonation but a solid offering !
