Hazy rosey copper under a thin foamy off white head. The nose has a nice rosey and hibiscus note, kefir lime, and a funky bretty barn tone to end it. Smooth and farm-y bretty flavor with a bit of hibiscus, hay, kefir lime, and a dry bretty finish.

Garrold (4498) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Bottle. Cotteridge, Brum. Label states batch 2. Cloudy, deep, rose pink. Film and halo of sticky, off white head. Loads of brett on the nose. Lime juice. Flora. Some red berry fruit. The oak comes across white chocolate sweet. All of which seems to come together well. Taste is light, fruity sweet, turning floral, leafy bitter. Clean, sharp mouthfeel. Nice brett tanginess. Floral, citric bitter finish. Great stuff.

superspak (4860) - Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2016
750 ml bottle into tulip glass; Batch #2, bottled in 10/2015. Moderate gusher upon popping the cork. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy pinkish orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, cranberry, pineapple, mango, pear, white wine, peppercorn, hay, straw, grass, oak, honey, cracker, light musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity fruity/spicy/funky yeast, lime/hibiscus, oak, and light pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, cranberry, pineapple, mango, pear, white wine, peppercorn, hay, straw, grass, oak, honey, cracker, light musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Good amount of peppery yeast spiciness and light fruity/tannic tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, cranberry, pineapple, mango, pear, white wine, peppercorn, hay, straw, grass, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy/funky yeast, lime/hibiscus, oak, and light pale malt flavors; with a great tartness/spiciness balance and no astringent flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness from tart/spiciness as well. Medium-high carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly acidic/tannic/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Brett saison, All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy/funky yeast, lime/hibiscus, oak, and light pale malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink with the balanced acidity. A very enjoyable offering.

Pinball (11959) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2016
cloudy red orange, small white bubbly head. fruity to almost sweet fruity aroma, also some sourness, the fruits appear fresh. flavor is bretty, alc. bitter, grapefruit bitter, the lime and the hibiscus add some fruit and herbal notes, it’s very well composed but i don’t fancy the taste much. The beer is super dry, and the finer sourish nuances in between the dry and bitter is quite nice.
