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 wont be fully carbonated until that date. Ideally, youll 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 thats both the beauty and the intent behind this beer.

AWISLguy (2863) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2017
750ml corked and caged bottle as "After 12/24/16". From Cardinal Liquor in Gurnee, cellared 4 months and shared with bananabi11 at just colder than cellar temperature. Standard IPA pour. Aroma has funky brett. Taste is funky brett, lightly herbal. Not much else to this. Somewhat more saison-y more than ipa-ish. Finishes tangy funky. Shrug? Not what hoped for. 13.5

androman (2137) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2017
Enjoy After 07. 04. 2016. 1pt 9.36 fl oz shared bottle at home from De Caigny, Belgium. Nose is sourish fruity, sponge cake. Body is opalescent yellow, head is very big, white, rocky, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is fruity, apricot, sponge cake, tonic water. Medium sweet, heavy bitter, light citric sour. Finish is long lasting quinine heavy bitter. Medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation. Easy start, heavier finish due to strong quinine bitterness, interesting, out of balance but brett makes it really good.

jefcon (1775) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Opened 3/25/17. Gentle nose is hoppy and grassy, with grains and esters. Pours golden and frothy. Not more than a hint of sourness, lots of yeast, mellow and round.

rayaron (1627) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle sample at a tasting at Liors place. Thanks keremk. Hazy yellow with huge frothy white head. Floral aroma, perfumed with notes of brett and spices. Sweetish and spicy flavor with notes of brett, flowers, salted snack, bitter and sourish, a bit alcoholic, dry. Medium-bodied. Very good.

drowland (8469) - Georgia, USA - MAR 23, 2017
12/18/16. 750mL bottle of Enjoy After 12.24.15 - no clue where I got this or who shared, but hey, it made it a year, I guess! Or maybe I wrote it down wrong and it was just a couple days past. I dunno. Orange pour with a nice khaki head. Nice aroma, funky, Brett, melds well with what hops are left. Flavor is a bit disappointing, doesnt live up to the aroma, doesnt meld as well - bitter, funk, hops trying to break through, lingers bitter. Not bad.

Hazy orange color with a large, rocky white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Lots of brett, citrus, pine, vanilla, earth, dry finish.

Cavie (4585) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Bottle. Enjoy after 12-26-15. Rated in January 2017. Appearance, lots of sediment. Yellowish, murky. White foamy head. Rocky, persists. Citrus, lemongrass, funk aroma. No real hops in the aroma, perhaps some softer notes. Old hay, slight wood. Bitterness from hops in the flavor and finish. Some citrus, pine notes. Brett/funk is restrained. Nice as a Brett beer, poor as an IPA.
