This is fermented with 100% brettanamyces – which gives it a totally unique character – as does the generous amount of Sharpham Park spelt we add.

750ml Bottle - Amber in colour. Toffee, dried apricot, peach and hints of hay in the aroma. Biscuity and slightly sweet taste with notes of peach, apricot, sultanas and some faint tart notes. I did not pick up that much brett here. Well, not as much as I was expecting it at least.

Bottle from Beer Cellar Online Shop (April 2014). Clear dark orange, tight, creamy off-white head, mandarin, watermelon, mild bretty dankness, slight spiciness, quite sweet, low bitterness, smooth finish. Ok, but nothing really jumps out and grabs me.

Idiosynkrasie (5335) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2014
750ml bottle. Cloudy orangey golden colour with average to huge, thick, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sweet-ish, fruity, minimally yeasty aroma, hints of apricot and melon. Taste is vaguely fruity, very cautiously yeasty, rather expressionless; minimally chalky in the finish. Can’t detect a single hint of brett. Very cautious, almost a bit anaemic and simple.

750ml bottle pours a muddy orange with zero head. Nose of mild honey, malt.... and not much else. Flavor has some flower petal, honey, light lemon and.... not much else. Overly simple. Where’s the brett?

murkiest tan, thin white ring. Grape skin, light Brett hay, heavy citrus. Thin lemon up front, mid is faint egg before a lightly bitter hay. One of the smallest sours I’ve ever had, carbonation low, no prominence.
