Cristobal37 (758) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 15, 2016
Mild sour yeast aroma. Immediately a bit tart but not abrasive. Palate is bubblegum, pineapple, silky body. With this one I can enjoy the funk because it’s like a fine soft cheese, not like other straight up vinegar sour beers. Enjoyable, but Im still not interested in these funky brett science project beers. This one is at least somewhat enjoyable and not a full scale bacterial attack on the palate.

mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Vaikka avasin korkin vain osittain ja hyvin varovasti, olut ryöppyää lasin ja korkin välistä todella voimakkaasti ulos lattialle ja pöydälle sekä lopulta tiskialtaaseen. Kun kuohonta lopulta rauhoittuu, jää pulloon ehkä noin kolmasosa alkuperäisestä määrästä. No, ei auta. Samea likaisenruskea olut. Tuoksu belgihiivainen, hapan. Maultaan hapan, omenainen, melko kuiva.

alteregoo (856) - POLAND - JUN 30, 2016
Piana wysoka, nieco mydlana, ale trwała, gushing przy otwieraniu. Barwa żółta, mocno mętna. Aromat estrowy, lekko fenolowy i mocno dziki, przyjemny. W smaku pikantne, lekko kwaskowe, sporo nut starego siana, skóry, zepsutych brzoskwiń. Agresywna goryczka o chemicznym, sztucznym profilu, wysokie nagazowanie...
Wszystko wskazuje, że piwo się po prostu zepsuło, a mimo to jest dość ciekawe. Na dłuższą jednak metę męczy, trudno dopić...

SkillsFactory (522) - ITALY - JUN 11, 2016
Lotto 191003042014, best before 05/2019, aperta l'11 giugno 2016. Dorata, abbastanza limpida, schiuma bianca fine e di buona persistenza. In prima battuta aroma di Brettanomyces, metallica, successivamente erbaceo pungente, chiodi di garofano, mela verde, leggero stallatico, leggerissimo miele, acidula. Al palato acidula, miele, Brett, mela verde, finale erbaceo e paglierino accompagnato da una lieve coda acidula. Ben carbonata, corpo medio-leggero, texture leggermente oleosa. Assomiglia ad un blend tra una Tripel ed un Lambic.

Ysok02 (904) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2016
Une bière ambrée à la mousse abondante, au nez qui évoque les Brett, une pointe balsamique, les groseilles vertes. Bouche acidulée qui rappelle plutôt une sour/wild ale qu’une strong ale, finale acidulée parfaitement équilibrée. Atypique mais agréable.
