Bottle in Vail, shared with Jetson for Christmas. Thanks to lukaduke! Fucking gusher. Pours a hazy golden orange appearance with an off white head. Juicy orange, mango, grapefruity, pineapple, a bit grassy, slightly oaky aroma. Tart tropical fruity, quite pineapple bretty, oaky, fairly sour, vanilla flavor with a tangy, quite sour finish. Pretty tasty. marcus (10668) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 29, 2016
C & C bottle from Pangaea. Pours hazy gold with a huge foamy white head and a fruity oak aroma. There is a slightly sour pale malt flavor with a hint of brett and an oak finish. Delicate and very delicious. deanso (10101) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - SEP 22, 2016

Coniferous brettanomyces builds floral and citrusy fireworks which can be witnessed while being hypnotized by an underlying oily, vanilla-rich oak.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam settles atop the cloudy blond.
-The big, natural bubbles remain soft on the palate.
-The flavor profile is also peppery at times.
-The rusticity in this one is ably balanced with the oak. Both are nicely aromatic.
Bottle at the pre-Borefts tasting, Den Haag, 2016. Poured a hazy straw colour with a round bubbly white head. The aroma is citrus yeast acid. The flavour is moderate sour with a light dry woody yeast citrus light alcohol palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.

Pour out of 750 mL, thanks Dave! Very hazy orange yellow pour with thin but lasting white head, thin bubbles, aroma has notes of oak, pear, peach hints of spice, grassy notes as well with a touch of crackery biscuit, white grape, hints of earth. Taste is a nice mix of very funky and earthy brett, some pineapple, grape, hints of white fruit, very spicy grass hints of slight tart, finishing fairly dry and funky. Very tasty.

Bottle, Batch #8. Pours hazy orange, large white head, good residual and lacing. Aroma is very Bretty, clean funk, damp basement, dust, oak tannins. Flavor is musty, dusty, medium funk, clean though, no cheese whatsoever, dry, almost a fruitiness, oak tannins, low acidity with just a tiny hint of tartness. Light body, soft champagnelike carbonation. Well, holding this one for three years definitely worked out OK. This is a lovely beer.
