Metalchopz (3196) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2017
Part of their Dernière Volonté Anthologie 4-pack mixer. Hazy light golden colour with Champagne-like bubbles, a warm cap that stays quite a while with foamy lacing. Sour nose with the Brett and some mild sweetness from the Belgian Ale yeast. The taste is not really sour though, with more of the grassy hops showing. You can taste the Brett in the background, but a nice light bitterness creates a light dryness. Seems like the sourness disappears with time and fruity malts appear. A real interesting funky wild ale.

wolffish (586) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 4, 2016
Le liquide est mince et plutôt végétal. Des grains suris et de la mangue se mélangent à un palais et une finale plutôt boisés. Aurais-je trop tardé à la boire?

jaghana (5700) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle 341ml, a cloudy golden beer with low head. Nose is intense on sour and white vine notes, typical brett notes. Taste is medium sour to low with some astringency, light acidity too. Aroma is on apple, white grapes, touch of diacetyl, vinegar side is more present on retro olfaction, dry herbal / hay notes, lambic touch on aftertaste. Not that much oak touch, pleasant.

ctipping (1595) - Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Hazy pale orange with a small white head. Smells bretty with a little bit of banana and some pineapple. Light malt. Taste is dominated by brett. Earthy brett up front. Has just a bit of tang behind it. High carbonation. Medium body. Not bad.

Samact (37) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2016
Liquide dorée avec une effervescence bien présente. Un goût de céréale, d’ananas, d’acidité et de levures sauvages composent cette bière bien pétillante en bouche. Belle présence des bretts qui ne viennent pas envahir complètement le liquide et le laisse s’exprimer tout en douceur.

kevinsenn (2070) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2016
Bottle from a trade with SlovakSniper. Thanks, Pat! Great funky tart sour cherry aroma. Taste is surprisingly smooth; a really nice balance of sweet and sour. Citrus fruits and sour cherries, with some light malt. Very good sour.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a nice layer of dense white head. Aroma is loaded with funk, citrus, and grass. Taste is lemon citrus, followed by some bitterness, mixed in with some Brett funk. Finishes dry with a bit of an aspirin like aftertaste.

Boutip (6084) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 29, 2016
Bottle: Poured a clear yellow color ale with a medium size white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of tart and brett notes with some light oak notes. Taste is also a mix of brett and oak notes with clear tart notes and funky yeasty notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Very well balanced example of the style with good mxi of complexity and drinkability.
