rudolf (2358) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Bottle. Small but of haze in a light gold bodt, white head. Nose is fruity Brett, pineapple, honey, slight oxidation, very soft doughy malt. Flavor is dominated by Brett characteristics - pineapple, funk & floral notes. A bit of barrel comes out as tannin and the slightest bit of vanilla. Wine is apparent but subtle in the dry finish with pronounced bitterness.

LouisP (264) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2016
La bouteille de 750 mL verse un joli liquide à la robe orangée et jaune avec peu de carbonatation ni d’effervescence, assez trouble. Au nez, beaucoup d’agrumes, ainsi que le côté fruité de la brett qui est assez présent. Agrumée et amère en bouche, on dirait bien que l’excellente Pale Ale Américaine est assez présente avec une brett agréable qui goûte, sans imposer sa présence. L’Assemblabe #1 est une bière complexe, mais facile à boire. Super.

fiulijn (19614) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle from Denman Wine and Spirits, Vancouver
Hazy golden color, compact head. The aroma is spicy, funky, with a note of wood and lemon zest. The mouthfeel is bone dry; the malts are not spectacular, the spicy note is nice, probably with some coriander; it has a very light vinous note that seems to intrude rather than complete the profile. The final is a bit too astringent. More harsh than complex.
Very good, although I expected more from this one.

Lukaduke (3045) - Gray, Maine, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Explosive upon popping cork... pours a deep golden color with four fingers of fizzy white foam billowing out of the glass. Nose is brett heavy with lots of funky fruit and over ripe phenols giving off a boozy horsefart aroma. Palate is super carbonated with lots of acrid bitterness and tannic funk. A little abrasive on all fronts but underneath is a dry well structured saison it just appears that this bottle may have sat too long and overdeveloped. It was purchased about 6 months ago after being distributed in Maine but Im not quite sure how long its been in the bottle.

krumbum (1024) - truckee, California, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Really nice deep citrus funk. Deep hazy orange with white lasting head. Mellow wood and citrus get bigger, fuzzier and tart ter then all the flavors meld and fade refreshingly for how dry it is.

Draught at Moeder. Really wild and hoppy, lots of barnyard, quite bitter on the finish, mellows as it warms, Definitely makes me want to chase other versions.

ClarkVV (6066) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 16, 2016
750mL bottle from yourilevesque, drunk 8/5/16.
Pretty strong gusher, despite a good rest in the fridge for many months (this must be a 2015 bottling or early 2016 at most). Beige head is very well-retained atop a dark golden-bronze body with good clarity and plentiful, fine carbonation.
Lots of brett in the nose throwing out tart, tangy lime, horseblanket and just a touch of soapiness. There’s a bit of oak in there, as well as a strong wine character. It all seems quite intense, with lots of perfume-like character, tart acids, sharp fruits and tannins galore. The malt underneath is not lacking, adding light bread, hints of caramel and good base honey.
But it’s quite attenuated in the mouth; not too much so I’d say, but probably a bit lighter/drier than all of this wine, oak and brett acid would warrant. Nonetheless, it’s not really messy and there are delightful notes of succulent lime, honey and delicate floral notes that arise from time-to-time, underneath the heavy wine element. Heavy carbonation, but giving it time, it becomes quite tight and controlled, helping give a perceived, much-needed creaminess to the texture. Tons of fruitiness, as well. Just a bit too much tanginess from wood, wine, brett, and hop leading to a bit of palate fatigue.

hayduke (4978) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 15, 2016
It seems like every time I turned around there was another bottle sitting on the table in front of me at the rbsg grand tasting that it seems has slipped by everyone else. This again was a full bottle that seemed to be sneaking by everyone Poured cloudy orange with an off white head. Nose of fruit and funk. Medium in. body. Flavor is stone fruit and is very sour. Finish is sour. Very good. In fact excellent

sambernn19 (10) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2016
Visuel: Blonde rayonnante aux reflets dorés. Sa robe est trouble grâce à une lie imposante. Une effervescence très vive nourrit une mousse moelleuse aux fines bulles. Le col est massif et persistant. Arômes: Au nez, des effluves dominantes de cépage blanc sur fond de fûts de chêne humide dominent d’entrée de jeu. Quelques délicates notes campagnardes et sauvages chapeautent une pointe citronnée. Saveurs: En bouche, les levures brett charment les papilles de leurs arômes sauvages de cuir et d’étable légèrement acidulés tandis qu’une fine astringence nous mène vers une finale sur des touches de vin blanc rafraîchissantes. Un arrière-goût amer et fruité colle quelque peu aux joues. Texture: L’Assemblage #1 est une blonde acidulée au corps moyen. Son effervescence est picotante. Appréciation: Excellente

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks zvikar. Nice cloudy yellow with a white head. Great aroma, funky, woody, vinous, with earth and fruits. Dry flavor, tart, with funk, oak, some wine, fruits, and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation. Great, fresh.
