3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of sweet, spiced citrus and floral hops. Medium body, flavour of bitter sweetness. some grapefruit and mango in there, quite refreshing.
From a 22floz bottle (No freshness date evident, paid a discounted price of $4) that requires a couple pours into a tulip glass. The body is blonde and lightly hazy, a white head completes the appearance. The subtle aroma pleasantly showcases doughy and light herb. This is a quite good rendition of a Belgian golden ale and IPA (I would venture to say of the English style) hybrid. It isn’t an overly wild beer, it ijust executes a sharp cheddar flavor well.

650ml bottle. Pours cloudy amber. Brett hop aroma is surprisingly weak. Light sourness, medium bitterness. DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2017
£11 bottle fishing for a ceremonial 8K, probably from Gonzo, March 2016. Foggy blonde capped generously with white. Restrained overripe pineapple, pine, kumquat and old mouldy ginger aroma with discreet Belgian-like hop and spice. Slick and yeasty TCP, mouldering pineapple and flowery incense spice squarely in the Belgian camp but not the punch of Nelson and Brett I was hoping for. Not even a poke. Squashy dried apricot. Flicked incense ash in the nose. Considerably less than the sum of its parts. So disappointing.

2 of 6 in an Evil Twin Femme Fatale tasting event with Eric of Windsor Hy-Vee. Apparently not the same beer as Femme Fatale Brett, which notably doesn’t mention Nelson Sauvin on the label. Pours cloudier than FFB, golden amber in color with a ton of head. Flavor and palate are a little lighter but very similar. Tognetta (951) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 3, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2016 Amarelo ouro de leve turbidez, espuma branca de abundante formação e persistência. Aroma alaranjado, brett evidente, champagne, celeiro, nada fora do esperado, lúpulo inicialmente em segundo plano. No paladar leve acidez, amargor crescente, dulçor residual. Corpo leve e alta carbonatação. Final mantém o brett/celeiro, alaranjado perde força, ao servir o restante da garrafa ficou turva, ganhou amagor e se aproximou mais de uma IPA. Satyroneto (377) - BRAZIL - SEP 4, 2016
Cor amarelo palha, turva e sem brilho; presença de perlage discreto de difícil visualização pela turbidez da cerveja; espuma levemente marfim de altas formação e persistência com lacing razoável.
Aroma complexo, cítrico de frutas amarelas (maracujá e manga) com acidez ao final; com elevação da temperatura percebe-se um dulçor de maracujá em calda.
Sabor com base de leve caramelo e cítrico seguindo o aroma com meio levemente doce finalizando com sabor azedo e de amargor discreto. Retrogosto azedo e adstringente.
Corpo leve e baixa carbonatação. AgentAle (1726) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2016
Aroma is clove, lemongrass, earthiness and sweet malts. Taste is sweet light malts, citrus and clove. A light sour and funkiness follows but not overwhelming. Appearance is a hazy gold with a thick pearl head that retains very well. robinvboyer (4611) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2016
650ml bomber. Cloudy yellow pour, with a huge white head. Aroma is huge tropical fruit, lots of yeast, and some fresh herbs. Hints of mint and lots of citrus zest. A very light mouthfeel, lively carb, very crisp feeling. Easy drinking, pithy bitterness, dry, citrusy finish. Refreshing, with some very slight tartness at the end with some light mango. Nice stuff.
