Notes from GTMW 06. Hazed brown orange with a moderate light beige head. Aroma of oak, vanilla, brett, and sour cherries. Flavor has some big warming ETOH, otherwise much the same as the aroma. The oak and vanilla are a little bit stronger. Medium body with moderate smooth carbonation. Very good.

Poured a dark hazy brown with a tan head. Musty aroma with some dark fruit notes. The flavor is fruity and tart with a tannic bitter finish. Medium light body. Really nice treat.

Sample at Indiana Microbrewers Festival - Ahhh this is the good stuff! Aroma of sour Belgian yeast, plum, dark sugar and a touch of smoke. Pours cloudy dark copper with no head. Flavor is sour Brett, dark fruits, oak, coriander and even a little citrus. Palate is super smooth, especially for 12%. A fantastic brew I hope to get more of.

GABF 2006. I was damn impressed with the two beers I had from Brugge Brasserie. Copper bodied with a small tanned head. Aroma is Bretty notes, some tart fruits, and wet wood. Taste echoes the aroma - more Brett, some tart fruits, damp basement (wet wood and earth tones) and some dried maltiness. Body is medium with moderate carbonation and some dryness around the edges. Ends with more Brett character, some sweet malts, woody notes and fruit. Really nice stuff!

GABF 2006: Clear brown copper color with a beige head. Nice Bretty aroma with big leather notes. Tart and woody. Tart flavor with notes of chardonnay and fruity malt. Light bitterness on a semi-dry finish. No evidence of alcohol. One of my top 3 beers at GABF.

hopscotch (11018) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Draft... GABF 06... This beer rocks!... Lightly hazy, deep golden ale with a small, frothy, white head. Interesting aroma; earthy with acetic, woodsy notes. The flavor is lightly sweet, moderately tart and mildly bitter. Good balance. Woodsy. High ABV is very well-masked. Medium to full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Dry, woodsy finish. World class effort!

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 27, 2006
GTMW 06. Clear brown body. Sweet caramel malt and those pickled plums in the aroma. Sweet flavor with a nicely blended mix from teh brett and plum. Interesting stuff but overall too sweet.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2006
2006 GTMW. Light murky copper. Bretty sweet brown; same with flavor. Sweet flowers meet Brett. Good overall, but needs a kick.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2006
Tap @ GTMW 2006. Beautiful, semi-translucent and copper colored with a fuzzy tan crme head that has no intention of losing its retention. Aroma is ingenious. Lime and bitter oranges introduce the fruity brett character. Lemon grass and plum butter tartly support the majesty of aromatics. Creamy engine oil lays out winey orange peel unto the flavor receptors. Plum comes with shay butter along with a background bitterness that sweetly sings with honey basted, wilting stalks of grain. Divinely full-bodied, delivered with desert wine properties in a fashion of brett-accentuated port sauce. Lowered carbonation only helps to promote the wine-esque allegories, as do the plums. Hot alcohol pervasiveness arises in the finish, smoothing into maple, honey and specialty Belgian brett brown bread. A tart, souring grapefruit juice flavor provides the final footing.
