zinneke (242) - Brussels, - JUN 3, 2014
Sounded very promising, but for me a bit out of balance. The alcohol, allthough only 7% is a bit too strong, and the bitterness could be a bit more balanced with a nice malty touch, maybe some more wheat.. The hops are clearly on the backgroudn as bittering, and the aroma’s of the hops are a bit pushed away by the brett. Very nice brew, but my expectations for TO Ol are always very high! :)

0,33 l bottle. I also had it on tap at Sir Williams pub. Pours orange with lasting rocky off white head and distinctive wheat malt haziness. Aroma of malts, plenty of yeast, rather contained barnyard funk, fruity hop notes, slightly spicy and tarty. I was expecting more hop presence, but aroma is very complex. Taste is medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter, light sourness. When cold it has distinct pine flavor. Body is full, texture is delicately creamy. Carbonation is average to lively. Finish is long, dry, fruity, funky with heavy bitterness.

OK, a bit neutral, nice bitter yeast, a bit tart, the aroma is particularly pungent and the stand-out here, but not one of my preferred tools

ardeo (547) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2017
33 cl. Orange presque limpide avec mousse abondante presque blanche. Aromes tout a fait sur le fruit : abricot, mangue, peche, agrumes mais aussi les herbes. Entr�e (square) en bouche en fanfare avec tout de suite l’amertume promise. Les gouts sont sur les fruits, le caramel, l’orange, le candi et les spices. Amertume et finale s�che (last square). Bonne !

Belle robe ambrée un peu sombre. Une amertume sèche mais légère. Au nez très rance presque un peu sombre. Bien équilibrée avec une attaque douce qui se corse en amertume par la suite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (10667) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2017
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Orangish-brown with a bubbly off white head. Aroma is cooked peaches and tea. The flavours are the same with aspirin bitterness that finishes harshly. I pretty sure this is not fresh....

sulawang (1197) - - FEB 5, 2017
Visual: Pours cloudy orange-brown with minimal lasting head, fine foamy 1mm layer of retention, clusters of steady active streams.

Nose: faint subtle sour funk’d barley malt (lvl-3)-pungency

Attack: crisp, thick fullness, creamy

Mid-palate: sharp numbing resiny-pine, (lvl-5)-sweetness, soft toffee barley malt,

Finish: subtle banana wheat malt exhale, grainy barley malt, lingering metallic hopped bitterness

Summary: The combo of oats for creaminess, wheat for fruitiness, and barley as the backbone works well in this brew. This IPA is the dry, piney variety - good stuff, but I wished for more fruity citrus to round it out.

piwnanuta (224) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 19, 2017
Na pierwszym planie mamy zioła i słód. W tle brzoskwinie, cytrusy. Przypomina delikatnie winny aromat który możemy znaleźć w barley wineach. Po jakimś czasie wychodzi tu coś drożdżowego. Przypomina mi aromat dojrzewającego ciasta drożdżowego, jakie robiła moja babcia. Na drożdżówkę lub pizze. W smaku jest słodko, jak w piwach belgijskich. Dominuje zboże i zioła. Jest tu też taka dzikość drożdżowa. Coś w stylu starej skóry. W tle brzoskwinie i przyprawy na końcu języka. Goryczka średnia i przyjemnie zalega. Po jakimś czasie robi się delikatnie kwaskowate i winne.

UXO (1922) - CANADA - JAN 9, 2017
Appearance: hazy pale amber with two fingers of fluffy growing ivory head, excellent retention and heavy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: Brett funk, stone fruit, grapefruit, some tropical fruit. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium slightly oily body, lively carbonation, lingering bitter and mildly warming finish. (3/5) Yup, “farmhouse IPA” is definitely a valid style label to hang on this thing (BJCP be damned!): lots of farmhouse (well, that, or barnyard) Brett(-like? I dunno, I’m not a mycologist.) funk character battling for supremacy with grapefruit and tropical fruit IPA notes. Not all that tart, though, despite the commercial description. Might be interesting newer - perhaps there’d be more of the pithy grapefruit if you caught it within 90 days or so - but given the dominance of Brett(-like? Whatever.) wild yeast here, I kind of doubt it. If anything, this strikes me as the kind of IPA you could stick in a cellar for a couple of years just to let the funk really dig down and get established. If I happen to notice another one of these around, I might do just that. (15/20)

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A big sweet fruity nose. The flavor is sweet banana, spices, lemongrass. Interesting.
