radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
On tap for Zwanze Day 2013 at Volo. Cloudy golden in colour. The aroma is of tropical fruits, orange citrus. The flavour is of light citrus hops, tropical fruits, some pine, light brett. Finishes long, light funk.

Oakes (18472) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2014
Cloudy tan, no head, big fruity, fresh hop aroma. Sweet, fruity, lots of hops but definitely just a touch of brett in the finish.

Spab (4002) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
On tap at Volo. Pours a cloudy golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is citrusy hoppiness and lightly tart fruitiness. Flavour is citric and almost soapy hops with some juicy fruits and mild brett character. Fine carbonation. Interesting and nice.

Cool concept, and comes together decently. Pours orange with pillows head like nitro and corresponding carpet lacing. Brett is very subtle here with some hops and malt undertones. Bretta doesn’t shine here bit kind of works to dampen hops flavour. Tap at volos.

neongolden (1770) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2013
(Draught at BarHop, Sept 19 2013) Poured a darkish orange with a small white head, no lacing. Aroma is really Citra hop-forward, smells like a fantastic IPA, not too much Brett character but that may be because the predominant esters produced smell like Citra! Flavour was equally big Citra hop-forward, nice bitterness, a decent caramel malt body and then some funky, Bretty yeast character really livening up the latter half of the palate. Quite bitter on the finish. Mouthfeel moderate, carb a little high. Nice big hoppy IPA with a Brettanomyces twist. Love it, wish I’d had more, too many great beers at the GLB/Bellwoods takeover. Please bottle this bad boy!

HogTownHarry (7064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
October 30, 2011 - Volo Cask Days 2011 - gravity cask. Pour was murky as shit - dark orange, like fresh pineapple juice, a frothy off-white head. Aroma - wow, light brett and a bit of unripe apricot, not sweet, not much alcohol - very very nice. Taste is "young" brett brightness and middling tart/sour juiciness, a little more alcohol. Thick mouthfeel, acidic, almost completely without carbonation, but I loved it nonetheless.

blankboy (7780) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
Cask at Cask Days 2011. Beer #4 of festival. Pours a lovely-looking murky yellow-peach (?) with a small to average size long-lasting bubbly white head. Awesome aroma of fruity citra (I’m guessing) hops along with tropical fruit and some Belgian yeast -- but mainly it’s hops all the way and I love it. Really nice flavour follows the aroma but the hop and Belgian yeast flavours are more equally balanced, making for a very tasty Belgian IPA. Medium bodied. A fantastic beer and perhaps the best beer of the fest.

mabel (9245) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2011
[4052-20111030] Cask. Juicy orange lemon wedges aroma. Murky, light orange brown body with a long-lasting bubbly off-white head. Bitter orange peel flavour has a little grassy hops. Medium body is quite bitter. Delicious. (7/3/9/4/16) 3.9
(Cask Days 2011 @ Hart House; Toronto, ON)

Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2011
A hazed amber IPA with a thin off white head. In aroma, smooth foral hops with Brett notes, orange pulp, very nice and smooth. In mouth, a smooth floral hops over biscuitty malt, light restrained Brett notes, very nice citrusy notes, excellent. Cask Days, Oct. 30 2011.
