Bottle; a dark, dull gold. Brett aroma that smelled a bit like dirty diaper (albeit I am new to Brett). Flavor was bretty, tarty and a bit hoppy. Didn’t come together to well for me.

Puszka. Koci mocz, bretty od razu mocno. Po chwili cytrusowe, kwiatowe, ciężko identyfikowalne, ale dzikie. Goryczka średnia, dosyć dlugo akcentowana, piwo odświeżające od pierwszego łyku, jednak dzikusy czynią je wytrawnym. Cytrusowe, lekko kwieciste.

Nos zwodniczy: słodko-brettowy, usta wytrawne, wyraźnie goryczkowe, piwo spełnione w swym idiomie: dzikie ipa jak się patrzy. Lekko mętne, piana nietrwała. Wysoce pijalne.

Pours a frothy and strong eggshell colored head. Nose is banana, lemon, pepper, brett and hay. Interesting on the tongue, the dryness is great but it seems to wipe out a lot of the flavor. Lemon, horse blanket, lingering finish. Pretty good.

DocJitsu (2025) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2017
Unimpressed with this beer from the pour. An average pour produces an inch of liquid and 4 inches of aggressive ahead. The head takes forever to attenuate. Six minutes after the pour I can finally try the beer. Sour funk with circus peanut on the nose. A pull into the mouth catalyzes a sequence of flavors; each one more vile than the last. Subtle sourness, a circus peanut covered in dust, and horsehair. Much too dry as well. I don't like Brett beers, but this is the worst of the few that I've had.

On tap at Vultures Lane. Pours cloudy yellow. Brett, lemon, apple, bread, orange, candy, bubblegum, vanilla, white chocolate type stuff, synthetic lemon flavouring. Full body with low carbonation. Really good.

harrisoni (19165) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2017
Om tap at The Bottle Shop Bermondsey. 6.5% hazy gold lasting white head. brett aroma. Then a decent grapefruit ipa. Decent brett ipa combo. Nice enough. Simcoe version?
