conway (2210) - - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle. Hazy gold with a big rocky white head. Aroma is citrus and earthy funk. Taste follows suit but the yeast has a very rubbery character. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. On the whole not bad but I think the Brett strain these guys use is not my cup of tea.

ShivanDragon (4086) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2017
Carnivale Brettanomyces, 2017, van tap @Beertemple. wazig geel/amber met witte kraag. aroma is redelijk farmhouse-ish, smaken van gras, stro, hooi, zoetig, smaakvol, natte theedoek-achtig, maar toch ok.

tricksta_p (4560) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2017
From tap at BeerTemple, Amsterdam, during Carnivale Brettanomyces 2017. Aroma is floral and hoppy with biscuity malt, grain, stone fruits, and light funk. Flavour is mild tart and sweet with a moderate to medium bitter finish. Body is medium. Nicely tart-ish and hoppy.

Maakun (5405) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2017
Tap at BeerTemple. Hazy light golden with big white head. Quite Bretty, dank weedy hops, lime peel, pineapple, sweaty socks. Just medium sweet and bitter. Medium bodied.

Holy balls what am I smelling? This thing is all over the map and I can barely get a foothold. I get: acetone, poop, moldy straw, perfume, candy, floor polish. None of those are really the right descriptor. It’s basically a lot of bretty weirdness and hops coming together to create a gestalt of funk. Pale hazy yellow. Huge massive billowing protein rich meringue head. Flavor is much like the aroma, funk and weird. Floral and citrus rind bitter, bretty funk. I barely even know what to think. Rarely have I been so dumbfounded by a beer. I think I like it?

dorain (177) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2017
Vom Fass im Muted Horn Berlin 2017-05 getrunken. Hier treffen typische Pale Ale Aromen auf eine sehr sanften Säure durch die Brett (Brettanomyces), die doch dann zu sehr im Hintergrund bleibt. Nett und fast schon etwas langweilig!

4.1
Bill Becker (1010) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Hazy straw gold, good head of foam. Smells of lemon and grapefruit, touch of Brett. Taste kinda herbal with lemon and grapefruit and Brett mid palate and through the finish. So good to my tastes it’s scary @

4.1
mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2017
[9152-20170420] 375mL bottle. Hoppy fresh navel orange peel aroma. Hazy, pale yellow body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head and some lacing. Bitter orange peel hops flavour has a slice of lemon. Medium body is bitter with a ’Bretth’ of sour. Tasty. (8/5/8/4/16) 4.1+
(Crooked Stave Tap Takeover @ Birreria Volo, Toronto, ON)
