3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Nice citrusy aroma with a subtle vinegar smell. Taste is very complex, with tropical hop resins and bretty metallic bite. One of those beers that is great at first, but towards the end of the glass some of the flavors are amplified as they linger on the palate.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange-waxed bottle courtesy of a PUB’R operative. Pours turbid dark straw with fizzy off-white head. Nose was heavy resiny hops, some yeasty tartness, tropical fruit. The palate was complex and lively, with flavors of tangerine, pineapple, a big Simcoe hop bill, yeasty funk. My only beef was that it was a bit weird in the funkiness late, with the funky yeasty notes seeming to clash with the hops.

Une fabuleuse épopée d’ananas sur savon bretteux, très juteux, bonne amertume, corps bien aéré, buvabilité extatique.

Bottle. Pours a hazed orange with a small, off white head. Aroma is funky, catty, with pineapple and dusty basement aromas. Tropical fruit, mango, some wood and cherry aromas. Flavor is dry, bitter, with lots of funk and fruity hops. Mild sweetness from the fruity hops, but otherwise funky and bitter. Full bodied, average carbonation. Finishes bitter and funky.

Bomber. Poured cloudy golden with an off-white head. The aroma picked up meaty pineapple and bready notes with catty and orangey hop accents.. some funky Brett too. The flavor found orange meat, honey, and bready malts with peppery notes, orange zest, and funky Brett around.. finished spicy with lots more Brett. Heavier-bodied with lots of carbonation.. spicy and warm.. nice one.

Light golden pour fluffy white head bottle gusher. Almost a pilsy aroma slightly sweet lots of citrus pretty balanced. Avg palate. Flavor is lots of citrus and a ton of floral hops. Smaller than I’d expect for a double. Good not great

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Beautiful wax job going on. Pours a hazy orange beer with a medium sized white head on top. Aroma has subtle touches of oak, apple, light Brett. Hops are faded out in the background unfortunately. Flavor is great mix between the two styles. Easy, light bitter flavors mixed with a subtle acidic touch. Even some sweet malt going on in the body. Aftertaste is nice and bitter, grassy and pine. Impressive and interesting, however, I’d expected more from these two great breweries.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I guess Brett makes everything better? or does it? Bottle shared by Cliff (thanks man) nice orangey color, with 1 finger head, nose is plenty of pine and bitterness, then taste is bitter, sour, bitter in that order... which is unique but i dont think the sum is greater than the parts.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle in Amsterdam with a few brahs, thanks Kermis. poured hazy golden color with white head, pretty good size. Aromas and flavor are brett, peach, mango, dusty wood, passionfruit and some other tropical hop notes. Medium to fuller body. Havent liked what these guys are putting out lately especially the staples but this was delicious and relatively complex.
