Block (2576) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2017
A very nice beer. Nice hops, very well balanced, good flavors. Not too Belgian and Im surprised to see the addition of brett - I didnt think this came through at all. Just a nice strong beer with a very balanced body. Strong flavors in the best places.

vinivini (1959) - Gomel, BELARUS - APR 11, 2017
Hazy amber colour, big white rocky head. Good retention. Funky nose. Also fruit, floral hops, perfume, honey. Medium to full body. The taste combines light honey sweetness, wild yeast, fruitiness, light hoppy spicy bitterness. Complex one. Good.

Eructoblaster (4101) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2017
Bottle - 330ml. Beautiful hazy amber body with an average off-white, foamy head. Interesting malty/hoppy taste with spicy, spruce, and flowery hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp malty/hoppy taste carries oaky, yeasty (brett), and sour berries notes. Ends with a long bitter/sour finish. Good stuff, a bit out of the beaten path.

ALIBALI (1558) - Kiel, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2017
Bretto over all, aber auch sanft, mit Dften von karamelisierte Nen, Honigsirup und seifiger Spiceyness. Geilo!!! Der Trunk dann deutlich geerdet und ohne Hhenflge, dann aber langer wrmender Begleiter. Hier dominiert ebenfalls der Gerber und seine oben erwhnten Zutaten, wei er richtig einzusetzen. Lecker!! Und auch weinig. 0,33l Bottle from BEERGIUM.COM.

Aromas and flavors of funk, earthy, wood, citrus and pine. Minor sweetness and dry finish. Nice color with a bid head.

afitch (7) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2017 does not count
Bottle in tulip glass at home. Nose is bright sweetness, like cheap perfume, with dried and fresh fruits, some honey and rock sugar. Pours hazy amber, with a strong, thick white head that lasts. Taste follows the aroma, with lots of sweetness, dried fruits and flowers but with some bitterness. Medium body. Overall a decent wild ale, with the Brett doing its work, without going bonkers.

ciocanelu (2051) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 11, 2017
Hazy dark amber color with beige head. Aroma has caramel malt, some sweet, overripe fruits and some floral yeast esters. Taste is more yeasty, it even has some light brett notes. Also the sweetness from the aroma does not translate to the taste, its quite bitter and earthy, but its still fruity overall. Medium body with medium to high effervescence. Overall its a quite interesting beer.
