gunnar (5665) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours clear weak golden with a huge frothy white head. Aroma of fresh hay and fruit, citric and funky notes, complex and very inviting. Taste is mild, light fruity with straw and grass, some weak resiny bitterness at the finish, dry all over, nice.

Davros (2027) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2014
Pours orange with a large head. Nose shows peach, Brett, elderflower, melon and floral hops. More of the above fruit as flavours along with the floral notes. Big funky Brett accompanies it all.

tmrmwel (1058) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow, with an enormous creamy head. Aroma is citrusy notes of brett, as well as bitter hops with lemon and peaches. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is really bitter with hoppy lemon, pine and grapefruit, as well as lingering dry brett.

tia (1010) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Tap @ Commercial Taphouse. Looks like honey with a thin white head. Smells passionfruity, tart, and funky. Rates like a funky, hoppy brandy. A little heavy on the carbonation, tart and bitter finish.

ClubGonzo (4232) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy straw yellow body with a medium rocky white head. Nose is citric peel, lemon juice, straw, hay, mild stable funk notes, hints of red fruits, apricot and sweet herbal notes. Taste is grass, stable funk, dry leaves, straw and hints of melon and resin. Medium body, high carbonation. Lovely aroma, a bit too dry in taste for me perhaps but a nice refreshing beer all in all.

Aroma: sour, fruity, grain malts, herbs. Appearance: hazy, pale gold, massive, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: herbs, yeast and light sours continue, very soft carbonation. Overall: a very interesting IPA, very special aroma and palate. Bottle at The White Hart, Whitechapel.

jlruthven (562) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle. Not a gusher, but the foam starts to creep up out of the bottle upon opening. Head takes a while to settle in, but this is seriously one of the prettiest beers Iíve ever seen. Like hazy pineapple juice, just radiant and inviting. Head is thick, soapy, and pure white. Big, big brett presence on the nose: wet ropes, hay, day-old lemon rind, musty musty. Really cool, soft mouthfeel. The hops are just there to support the brett; stinky cheese rinds rubbed with orange peel, or vice versa. I donít say this much because I hate people who always say it, but Iím VERY interested to see what age does to this beer as the hops continue to oxidize out.

bhensonb (11512) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from Star Grocery in Berkeley, CA. Pours translucent gold with lots of fizz and a white head. Aroma is mild and pleasing brett with arguably fruity hops. Med body at least. Itís very dry, quite hoppy. Itís a little horse blanket, but really smooth in that sense. Itís a hoppy, fresh earthy ale, that has no sour bite at all. Really tasty.

deyholla (6989) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle. Pour a clear pale yellow with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma is very dry with some peppery notes, earthy grain and just a hint of earthy pine. Flavor starts with some dry grains backed by some light pine and grass as well a a touch of light fruits.

Inbreak (2403) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2014
21.11.2014, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Big creamy longlasting head. Aroma is fresh funky, mild brett, citrus peel, leafs, lawn, citrus, soda powder, sap, hay. Taste is harsh yeasty, bark, citrus peel, harsh brett, sap, fresh wood, leafs, lawn, soda powder, minerals. Medium bitterness, harsh citrusy mouthfeel. Not really my cup of tea.
