COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What you hold in your hands is an experiment. This IPA is spiked at bottling with Brettanomyces, a wild yeast that, over time, brings about charmingly unpredictable complexities of spice, funk, acidity, and more. The operative words in our beer-cellaring thesis are "over time." For those of you who are impatient or like to experiment, the earliest we recommend sampling this beer is 10.31.14. The beer won’t be fully carbonated until that date. Ideally, you’ll want to cellar the beer up to--or beyond--the Enjoy After date to help it reach its full evolutionary potential. At that point, some facets of the Brett characteristics will have mellowed, while others will have become more profound; it all matures into a fascinating and delicious culmination. Individual results will vary...and that’s both the beauty and the intent behind this beer.

I was eager to pick and try that one. A a smooth Brett, which I appreciated after a good day at work and home.

Enjoy after 07.04.16. 750ml bottle from LCBO. Pours an opaque golden colour with one finger of lasting white head. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, pine and some apples. Taste matches the aroma and ends on a spicy note. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Yorker (2007) - Herning, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2017
(07.04.16) Caged and corked 75 cl bottle @ home (watch out: the cork exploded as soon as I loosened the cage and it hit the ceiling). Pours hazy golden with a white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma and flavour are brett, flowers, spices, and citrus - with a dry finish.

glennmastrange (2884) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2017 Bottle. Moderate aromas all around with roasted grain for the malt, pine for the hops, musty basement for the yeast, . Head is average sized, frothy, white, with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and a lingering bitterness. Palate is light to medium, slick, with a fizzy carbonation. Great spin on an already great IPA. I love this beer.

blankboy (7714) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2017
[Bottle (750ml) shared w/ HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a cloudy gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Really nice aroma (8+) is Bretty, herbal, hoppy and fruity. Lovely flavour, plenty Bretty and hoppy along with a good amount of fruit. Dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. Loved it.

Sammy (12387) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2017
Solid execution. Brett and hops married well together. Creamy and tasty concoction. Lots of lace. LCBO gem.

chris__hartley (445) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2017
It pours gold with an off white pillow-like head. The aroma has notes of: lemon zest, barnyard funk, hay, grapefruit, pine, and cracker. The taste is heavy bitter, with slight sourness and astringency. The palate is medium heavy bodied with heavy carbonation; the finish is long. Overall, lacks balance and feels abrasive - too hoppy.
