UPDATED: JAN 21, 2018 37,5cl bottle at Gyhallmanti’s, bought at De Roemer, Groningen. Split with Gyhallmanti. Bottle says 2016. Appearance: hazy pale straw with visible carbonation and yeast, with big white head. Aroma: brett, funky, citrus, some fruity hops and wine. Not much else. Taste: medium sweetness, high bitterness and subtle tartness. Notes of brett, citrus, some yeast and wine. Palate: medium bodied, oily texture and unfortunately overcarbonated. Not much (left of the) IPA character. Not worth its price.

ALIBALI (2889) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2017
Brettdominant und trotzdem so sehr harziges Malty IPA....mit dem extra dryredwiney Aftertaste. ❤. Es schlickert, spritzt feinsäuerlich und boozt in Richtung IIPA...oder vielleicht ROTWEIN😉✨👽👌 Da passt vieles ❤❤ ...wenn man auf IPA-Outstander & Wild steht!? 375ml Bottle aus Groningen. Not cheap 🎆

Brett, cheesy funk, musty pear, lemon nose. Clear amber, thick head. Dry, vinous, oak and twigs. Medium body, soft carbonation. Didn't get a lot hop character, but it's an elegant wild ale.

Pinball (12642) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2017
bottle from broxbeers.com cloudy yellow, bubbly white head. foamed over after 30s when openend and kept volcano foaming for a minute or two. aroma of brett, flowery hops, very faint straw and lemongrass, malts. faint tartness, quite pleasant aroma overall. flavor is slightly sourish, lemongrass , tea, brett, wine barrels (what i tasted bf looking it up was was barrels with something sourish in them). flavor is less crazy than most other belgian beers on wine barrels i have tasted, and i like this version better than most of its kind i've tasted - not so bittersweet/sour as they can get.

ctipping (2299) - Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2017
Bottle at the Parched Pig. Pours orange with a huge head and lots of floaty bits. Smells of red wine, grapefruit and pine hops, and some musty fruitiness. Taste is much more bretty. Immediate Brett flavor. Earthy and bitter. Red wine. Still retains some grapefruit. Back end is fruity, yeasty, and bitter. Well carbonated. I can't imagine this is all that fresh and is hardly what I'd call an IPA, but the grain and yeast profile that BFB uses works in this treatment as well.
