COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg, cask & 750ml bottles, special
This is fermented with 100% brettanamyces – which gives it a totally unique character – as does the generous amount of Sharpham Park spelt we add.

Idiosynkrasie (3705) - 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.

750 ml bottle. BB? From alesbymail.com. Cloudy copper colour with a small off-white head. Grainy malt, herbal and berry notes and mild yeast in the aroma. The flavour is mild floral hops, grainy malt and mild yeast. Drinkable but not very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nimbleprop (4756) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 5, 2013
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?

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 30, 2013
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.

Travlr (10035) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle courtesy of nate2g, thanks! Cloudy golden yellow color, white edge head. Aroma of fruity straw and hay. Taste is funky straw. Not bad.

Beersiveknown (2844) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 28, 2013
bottle at home from ales by mail
Dark opaque amber with towering fluffy beige tinted head. Sweet malts and Belgian yeast esters on the nose - no sign of the brett yet. Medium carbonation, very dry some residual bitterness, none of those funky poopy brett flavours in evidence, a light sourness and fresh hay are the only clues to it, with perhaps some spiciness from the spelt helping to cover it up. Well made but perhaps not as *interesting* flavour wise as some of the other wild beers, despite seeming so on paper.

Niall73 (1653) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber orange colour with a white head. Aroma is a bit peppery, slightly yeasty, Light body, a bit thin. Mild fine carbonation. Hints of orange, light spice, lemon. OK.

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Keg at BD Shoreditch. Slightly earthy, doughy nose with some sweetness and a citric lift. Pours a muddy amber with sparse froth. The flavour is very nice - tangy notes from the yeast, some fresh grassy hops, some honey malty sweetness. Dry finish. Good one.
