FlacoAlto (4266) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 2, 2018
Batch number 9, November 2017; sampled March 2018.
A steady pour produces a three fingers thick, pale tan colored head; the head leaves a nice layered lacing pattern on the sides of my glass, and has a really fluffy, dense character to it that allows it to be quite long lasting. The beer is a pale Amber, honey color, that shows a mostly clear honey Hue when held up to the light. The aroma has a cracker like green character to it, a soft nuttiness and bright fruit character that smells of citrus zest, apple cider, and perhaps some tropical fruit notes. There was also a woody and herbal flavor here as well as a spicy woody character, that maybe from the cedar.

The beer is quite dry, with a touch of accentuating acidity, as well as an accentuating astringency and woody, herbal character. The beer has a solid bitterness to it, and it has a sort of nutty, sort of spicy, definitely woody flavor to it as well. The carbonation is at a medium level, which pairs well with the lightly viscous body, that just rests on the palate; overall the beer is fairly light. The middle and finish C's flavors of Tangerine zest, a bit of kumquats zest, a floral note that is not quite Peach, a bit of lychee, and a peppery, spicy, not quite perfumed wood, herbal note. The Hop character leans towards honey like notes as it warms up; more floral.

This is a really nice beer, the cedar character is interesting, even though it is settle, it adds another dimension to the hop character in this funky, lightly sour beer. Very tasty, and very well-balanced, this is definitely something that I am enjoying quite a bit

Draught at source: pours golden with a white head. Aroma is funky and woody. Taste is dry, earthy and funky. Low bitterness but the brett gives in a nice tang. Woody undertone. Nice finish.

The Masonry, Fremont, Seattle. White cream on very lightly hazed yellow gold. Sip is nice waxy Brett-like yeast character with some wafts of dank, damp wood and green hop. Moderately foamy feel, nice woody dry and moderate bitter finish. Nice funk as well. Very nice.

Draft 12 oz pour at the new Masonry location. Quite the impressive place this is. Quite an impressive beer this is too. A mostly clear, shiny golden pour. Gushing foam head. Took quite a while to get this one poured. A soft tart lemon like fruit aroma, buried with oak. Oak is a headliner in the flavor as well, but it's not over the top. Actually a really nice balance of oak and tart citrus. Doesn't have a strong feel to this at all. Quite mild and refreshing. Dry finish. Very good stuff.

Pours cloudy golden colored with a large white head that has good retention and excellent, soapy lacing. Starts with bright citrus and stone fruit flavors as well as a lively mouthfeel. Finishes dry and tart with grassy hops, spicy Brett funk and some cedar flavors. Bright and refreshing farmhouse.

750ml bottle @ Matt's. BIF from heavyveggie, thanks! Batch #7 Bottled 2016.10.18
Pours a cloudy dark golden colour with a huge white head. Nose is wild yeasts which blend with what I can only assume is cedar and hops. Flavour is delicious mix of wild yeast, light sourness, huge cider, an interesting funk. It finishes mildly bitter with a dry character. I love it, but not feeling the Belgian Strong aspect.

Oakes (19911) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2017
Hazy tan, with a big rocky head. Aroma has brett, with a fair bit of sweet malts. The palate is similar, with lots of brett, There's a nice brett, some quality pale malts left over, a touch of nice fruity notes. Excellent, the balance is really on right now.
