Fin (11169) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2018
Bottle picked up from Buxton online store, consumed at home Thursday 6th February 2018 when cooking a meatball lasagne. Light amber with a sticky white head, really good clarity. The aroma is a beefier slightly more malty version of a Bruxellensis or Orval. In the mouth there is a nice softness, good bitterness that creeps around the gums. Love the brett, love the hops, almost a medicinal numbing going on, this is a lovely beer. A8 A4 T9 P4 Ov17 4.2

C: Very good cream-coloured dense head, leaving textbook lace over crystal-clear foxy red-amber beer. 4/5 N: Nice Brett nose with lactic acid, “funky”, fruity, as moulded red fruit and ditto citrus combined. 8/10 T: Hints of chocolate through vinous, fruity flavours, organic acids and again, “funky” is the name of the game. 7/10 MF: Not thin as many Brett beers, quite slick and good carbonation. Rather Orval-like. 3/5 O: Quite decent. On the downside, not much hopcharacter, might be reinforced for a IIPA.15/20

allmyvinyl (11308) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2017
Bottle from the Brewery online shop, shared with Tom at work. Heavy Brett nose. Funky. Pours hazy golden orange with a thin white head. Faint hop tickle, mostly just funky and dry though.

Rask0lnikov (1609) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 9, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours reddish amber colour. Thin white head. Earthiness, notes of strawberries, sweetness, pineapple, brett in the aroma. Sweet notes, apricots, sweeter strawberries, earthy notes in the taste. Slightly sweet, citrussy aftertaste with notes of berries.

Johnstledger8 (1466) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 18, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 Bottle. Pours a murky amber with a lasting fluffy off white head. Aroma is of peach, citrus, light pine, hint of wood. Taste is of peach, stone fruit, pine, grapefruit, citrus, caramel malty finish. Oily mouthfeel, soft to medium carbonation.

2.1
Marduk (8828) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 11, 2017
330ml bottle. Clear dark amber color. Medium size, off-white head, stays. Leather shoes, grainy, sweet, yeasty in aroma. Leather, grainy, alcohol, rubbery in taste. Farmhouse something. Quite nope. Boozy brew.

2.7
suurjuust (3897) - ESTONIA - NOV 11, 2017
330ml bottle. Clean reddish amber pour, medium white head. Nose is sweet and weirdly perfumey, fruit and bread. Flavor is an odd mix of fruit, bread, brett, funk, earth. Very weird.

Alengrin (5998) - BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2017
Bottle at Gollem in Antwerp. Buxton DIPA with Brett - seems like an unusual, perhaps even paradoxical idea, but I had a few very interesting and excellent beers in this concept so I had to try this. Very thick and frothy, heavily cobweb-lacing, irregular, egg-white, very stable head over a hazy peach-hued deep brownish amber beer. Intense aroma combining relatively strong 'Brettiness' with (less outspoken but still pronounced) hoppy dankness, resulting in a mixture of fermenting yellow plums, spoiled old onions, stale sweat, damp hay, sweet paprika powder, peanuts, dried wormwood leaves, old soggy biscuit, stale grapefruit juice, earthy turnip. Estery onset, apricot and redcurrant notes, lots of red apple peel crispness accentuated by fizzy carbonation yet fit for a beer of this very particular type, sweetish core surrounded by a 'dim', soft but thorough sourishness, rounded biscuity and bready malt body with nutty edges and a mildly toasty finish; lots of retronasal 'Brett urine', old hay, wet leather and fermenting berries, mingled with grapefruit zest and exotic pepper hoppiness, which also deposits a long, drying, wormwood-like bitterness on the root of the tongue. Malt juiciness lingers through this dryness and bitterness, followed by an afterglow of warming, gin-like alcohol. Exactly what I was hoping for: a kind of "Orval on speed" so to speak, using a fundament of beautifully autumny 'amber' maltiness to build a structure of animalistic Brett and dank and bittering hoppiness on top of it. See e.g. some of the special Troubadour Magma editions (2014 and 2015) for another, much younger Belgian equivalent - and, as with those two beers, I am left wondering what would happen if this beer was cellared for a year or more. Very interesting and yet another masterpiece by Buxton, whom I consider to be among the best breweries in England today.

samsomuk (500) - Bridgwater, Somerset, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2017
Bottle at home sourced from the Buxton Taphouse. Pours hazy amber, with a white head. Aroma of funk, brett piney hops & malts. Taste is light sweet, dry, bready, fruity, earthy, funk, loads of brett. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Funkily bretted, dry finish. A cracking drop, like a super bretted imperial Orval. Never a sour/wild ale though, surely?
