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.

Shared bottle at local tasting . Pours hazy weak golden, small creamy white head. Nice complex aroma of Booth malts and hops. Taste is good dry herbal hops, long lasting, very good and moreish. Try for yourself and be convinced !

Shared 750 ml corked & caged bottle. Golden colour, large white head. Aroma of fruity hops and brettanomyces / farmhouse. Very nice flavour, brett and American hops galore, yeasty, but still very well balanced.

ganache (6056) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2017
Corked and caged bottle with the memorable date 04.20.17 ("6th edition"), consumed about five months after then. Pretty sure I bought two (they were $13 on 11 June 16) and drank one immediately -- has the rating of the first vanished into the ether? Anyway, nose very Bretty, that dusty Belgian golden/saison type, with still a fair amount of hops remaining. Absolutely did not gush, though the dense cream head was quite huge in the glass, sat atop a perfectly cleared bright golden body. Taste utterly bone-dry, some black pepper and rose petal, resin, alcohol warmth; touch dusty, touch melon, lesser orange and grapefruit peels, faint rubbery phenol, faint smoke. Body is thin and light and the carbonation is very soft, has crackery earth with smooth low-medium bitterness that accumulates to at least a medium. Golden pils malt remains, slightly diminished, though the graininess hasn't budged a jot. White wine base, some gooseberry flaring up around the sides (though this is not tart), heavy straw and hay. Really is an interesting interplay between the Brett and the hops, though probably not one to recommend to a casual drinker. Cobwebs dominate the finish for me. Probably not worth the money or the aging, but I did enjoy the experience. [2017.10.01: 3.7]

jksipa (1018) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2017
Rating #1000. Bottle from the LCBO (Enjoy after 07.04.16). Cloudy orange amber under a huge fluffy white head that recedes slowly and leaves some patchy lace. Nose is prominent Brett funk with some stone fruit, citrus, floral notes, grass, banana and light yeast. very lightly sweet malt base for a medium Brett tartness and medium- grassy bitterness through the finish with a touch of saison-like spice. Mouth is medium with prickly carbonation and a dry peppery finish. 9/4/7+/4/16+

Sjohnh (1012) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2017
Bottle from Beer Gonzo - was "enjoy after 07.04.2016" and consumed in September 2017. It's light orange, with a vast pillowy white head. Medium body. Nose is pure barnyard. Crisp, grapefruit and orange, and plenty of pepper which lingers at the finish.
