Draft from an Allagash event at Sam’s Quik Shop. Pour is dark brown with a modest dark beige head. Nose shows tart blueberries and chocolate malts. Hint of roast and blackberries as well. Taste blends tart, sweet, and dry well. Not overly complex, but much more refreshing than some wild ales, especially dark ones at 7.5%. Tasty.
Bottle shared with Koelschtrinker, Beerhunter111 & Zlotta. Smooth sourish beginning. Fruity hints, sour horse blanket, fresh fruity but not too deep or sour. Very mild, too mild for a Brett-Ale. Smooth finish, not as deep or aromaful as it could have been. Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 29, 2017

Bottle (375ml). Brown with tan head. Medium bodie and medium carbonation. Strong cherry aroma. Sour. Strong roasted malts. Good but not a favorite style. PanMarek (438) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Another sour beer that is not quite a saison. Dark brown pour with fine, beige foam that fades quickly to a thin layer. Rich, malty nose with notes of cherry and other tart fruit, some damp wood, and sour hay. Thin body with slightly slick texture and finish, crisp fizz. Rich sweet cherry taste, with toffee in the malt that lingers at the end. The brett is hidden at first by the tartness and the malt, but it emerges as the beer warms. The malt and wheat are the dominant flavors, leaving the brett slightly behind.

On tap at SLL tasting. Poured an opaque cola color with moderate light tan head. Smelled like sweet apple cider and tart vinegar, with some funky oak and sour and brown sugar. Tastes of funky oak and tart vinegar, with some sour apple and sweet brown sugar and minerals. It had a mostly clean and sour aftertaste. Palate was fairly thick with lots of carbonation. Big bubbly body. Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2016
On tap @ Barleycorn. Quite a dark looking one this, bronze brown in the glass with a tall really lasting and heavy lacing off-white head. Sweetish malty nose at first. It has both chocolate and nuts up front on the nose. A little bit of coffee and dark Belgian candied sugar. Like the aroma quite a lot, but I did not gent anything bretty at all to be honest. Makes up for it in the taste! Wow, what is this? It’s thick and oily on the texture. If I didn’t know better I’d say this was a 10+ percent bodied beer and it’s smooth and almost creamy on the bubbles. Lots of coffee and dark types of malts here. It’s a little chocolate wrappey but with a jammy undertone. Really sweetish and tasty. interesting and a great beer to kick of the NYC summer holidays 2015. Btw. did order a Session Brett, got a Midnight Brett. 08.06.2015 wombat23 (1417) - Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle. Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of berries, sour cherries, vinous. Taste is similar to nose, with additional barnyard, funk, light roast, and red wine. Good. BuckeyeBoy (7669) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 30, 2016
375ml bottle pours out dark brown topped with a small tan head. Nose is tart pit fruit some brett vanilla roast and berries. Taste is more of the light roast tartness some berries but more on the pit fruit side. darbeer75 (902) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Aroma: malty but not too sweet; perhaps picking up some rye; Appearance: dark chocolatey brown with off white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: slightly tart but not overwhelming; nice rye/malt backbone; Palate: medium body with long, tart/sweet finish; Overall: better than expected; would buy again.
