fiulijn (20218) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2011
Beautiful red-amber color, hazy; medium sized creamy head. The aroma is slightly funky, with rose petals and apricot jam. Smooth mouthfeel, high carbonation; the malt flavor has traces of Bretts giving a pleasant woody astringency; there are delicate fruity notes and spices; correct bitterness, peppery too in the end. It’s a balanced, intriguing, wonderful beer.

Bov (12530) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 29, 2010
from the brewery - cloudy dark reddish-amber colour under a little pale beige foam; subtle spicy aroma with hints of malt and red fruits; velvety mouthfeel and medium malt backbone; a decent bitterness; quite dry and with a long peppery, spicy and gently fruity aftertaste - subtle and very well-brewed; the 7,5% alcohol are very well hidden

Travlr (23576) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. Murky purplish brown color, medium beige head, solid lacing. Aroma of prunes, apricots, raisins. Taste starts sweeet but has a slightly sour edge, very soft, with tons of dark summer fruit. Medium body. Nice.

Thanks travlr! Clear reddish pour with a small white head. Woody acetic, and lactic acid, big pedio funk, cherries, dark fruit, and raspberry. Medium body with fluffy effervescence and a dry crisp finish. Really nice.

sebletitje (9905) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2012
75cl, courtesy of Rémi. Thanks for bringing this from Switzerland. Cuivrée, fine beige. Arôme est fruité avec un léger rappel de poudre de gingembre sans être trop surfait. On note de suite ce côté bien Hitachino pour un bouquet rappelant bien la Hitachino Ginger. Au gingembre s’ajoute un beau nez houblonné fruité. En bouche, houblonné japonais, peut être du Sorachi? laissant un très bon profile agrumes citronné. Le gingembre donne des notes d’épices sans être pour cela trop présent ce qui est souvent le cas des bières utilisant le gingembre. Le profile fruité oscille entre le tropical, goyave, citronné avec une levure étant plus dans la lignée de BFM. Le malt reste plus en retrait et laisse le champ libre aux houblons.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 29, 2012
750mL thanks to Travlr. GUSHER!! Pours a clear tea amber. Beige foam, enormous formation, overcarbonated. Settles down quickly. No lace. Acetic nose with must, caramel, dark cherries, melted chocolate. Taste is tart, tangy, bitter, not too harsh. Red wine vinous as usual. Not too acetic in taste. Very minerally. Palate is stingy, hot, minerally, lactic. Very interesting. Not bad at all. Not sure what this beer is.....but I would still put it in Sour/Wild Ale.

omhper (24616) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2011
Bottled, thanks Bov! Cloudy copper colour, small head. Tart nose with lemon and very slight ginger. Mid sweet with rounded mouthfeel, some caramel and funky brett. Salty bitterness. Freshening and interesting. This may not be the very best beer from BFM, but it’s always fun to drink their new, innovative beers!

Plovmand (8126) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a creamy longlasting off white head. The aroma is light ginger, citrus, and light acid. The flavour is ginger, flowers, caramel, acid and brett. Creamy texture. Ok.
