On tap at rbwg pours a hazy orange topped with a white head. Nose is Brett funk some oak along with a citrus kick. Taste is more of the Brett sour funky notes a barrel presents along with a spice. djd07 (16452) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2017
On tap at RateBeer Best. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with medium white head that lasts. The aroma is funk, citrus, floral, oak. Medium body, funky, citrus, light dry finish, very good. Nada514 (3) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 11, 2017 does not count
Bottle in my possession for around 5 months. It was a bit of a gusher. Tasted like a decent saison with a hint of other flavors. No sour notes. I didn't love this one.

On tap at Darby’s Gastown in Vancouver. A cloudy amber ale with a moderate white head and a fruity nose. Very similar to the Assemblage 2 mere minutes ago. Big sour fruit on offer here. Slightly bitter finish and aftertaste, but low bitterness overall. 3.8 MartinT (10239) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2017
My Bottom Line:
Boutip (6664) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2017
Piney brettanomyces, citrusy hops, haystacks and resinous bitterness meld in this deliciously characterful Wild Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A tuft of foam sits atop the cloudy sunshine yellow.
-Bottle conditioned is well done, increasing drinkability.
-Brettanomyces isn’t shy, but remains easygoing for the average Wild Ale lover.
-The nose is a tad dusty and chalky from the wilderness.
-Flavor profile gets juicier and juicier with every sip (tropical fruit smoothie).
Bottle: Poured a hazy orangey/yellow color ale with a large foamy head with OK retention and light lacing. Aroma of light tart notes with rustic malt and subtle oak notes also noticeable. Taste is a mix of green apple tart notes with some oak flavours and rustic malt notes with a light Brett finish. Body is full with good carbonation. I loved the fact that this beer is quite complex but also leaves lots of room to drinkability. anders37 (27898) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2017

750 mL bottle. Hazy pale orange with a big white head. Smells of earthy brett, light citrus, doughy malts. Tastes of sweet pale malt, immediately cut by earthy brett. Citrus. Tastes like it’s dry hopped, but the brett dominates most of the flavor. Spicy finish. Medium body with medium high carbonation. Nice combination of flavors. Perhaps a bit too bretty, but still very good. RobertDale (7050) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - FEB 11, 2017

750ml bottle purchased at Denman Liquor for $20. Explodes out of the bottle and soaks the hotels ugly curry candy stripe carpet of ochre, cherry and blueberry. Aroma of wild yeast coat my nostrils moments after its coated my bare foot. Raising the glass upwards to my face, familiar scents of coriander, lemon and white pepper provides for added dimension. Fizzy carbonation hits my nose hairs as a splash of tingle dribbles to my tongue giving the first glance of the slight sourness. This could easily be a Belgian ale like Saxo in both ABV and flavour with reminiscent spice, mildly sweetened malt, apple, pear and a dry yeasty finish. This is delightful. I may look to extract some from the carpet?
