COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
4 months bottle refermented with 100% Brussels Brettanomyces yeast. Amber colored with copper reflections, very fruity (pineapple and red fruits), sustained by hop flavors and complex notes of old leather. In spite of its 6,5%, its dry and bitter finish makes it a surprising thirst-quencher.

3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2017 May 2016 bottling reviewed one year old, pours hazed amber with a tall and sticky head, just barely crawling up out of the bottle when the cap is removed. Funky, buggy, nearly acetic apple-like (malic) brett impression, covering dense orange and apricot fruitiness. It’s medium-light bodied, lightly sweet with some low acidity, more tart and musty across the middle turning slightly sour in a wet finish. It seems to have survived out one year, no surprise given what it is, but still too much of this green apple and white vinegar resemblance, which thankfully subsides as it warms in the glass, the aroma showing more cork and old books / leather. There’s still plenty of sugar left but the carbonation is a mess, over-effervescing right out of the bottle (which comes across as disjointed / loose), before settling out in the glass after a couple of minutes, where its richness and sweetness overtake the diminished CO2 making it feel weighty. Fresh pours have more pizzazz and brighter carbonic acid.

Bottle. Dry and well attenuated, and good use of Brett to make a tasty, well balanced and gently soured beer.

ardeo (547) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2017
33 cl. Orange clair à mousse débordante. Nez : orange, pomme, cidre, levures/Brett, céréales. Bouche : appétissante sur le citron, la pomme verte, d'autres fruits, le biscuit. Avec un corps bien fait et une bonne amertume, ce produit est excellent, équilibré ... vers l'amertume et les saveurs. Vive carbonatation. Un coup de cœur bruxellois !

Disig orange öl med ett gulvitt skum. Doft och smak av frukt, torkad frukt, hö, brettig jäst och viss örtighet och kryddighet.. Komplex och god.

Rune (13510) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2017
330ml bottle shared with Finn at Agenturet Øl og Vinbar. Next to clear dark golden body. Diminishing white head, clingy lacing. Woody dry aroma of yeast, farmyard, and ripe citrus. Blended taste of brett and citrus. Tart, sweet and dry brett fruity ending. Soft in the mouth. Just alright without greater excitements. (Tromsø 28.10.2017).
