I’m having a beer from Brazil today! It’s a collab between Tupiniquim and Evil Twin Brewing, and it’s their ’Lost In Translation IPA’ brewed with Brett! Interesting! It comes in at 6.5% ABV and 40 IBUs. I don’t recall that I’ve had an IPA with Brettanomyces so far, so I’m excited to try it! It pours a bright golden colored body with a white head. There’s actually quite a bunch of sediment in the beer too, and I poured it carefully. The aroma is quite light, there’s some citrusy notes to it but very subtle. I do however get all that Bretty sourness. The taste is equally as light up front, but very crisp and citrusy after just a second. The aftertaste is a lingering Brett-sensation, still citrusy but sour too. It’s really refreshing, and the Brett really gives it that extra kick! It’s not bad, but it’s kinda weird since this is the first time I’m having it. But I kinda like it, it really grows on you. The mouthfeel is still kinda light though, but that’s what makes this beer refreshing. It would be a sipper had it been a bigger mouthfeel. danielyabu (1668) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - MAR 20, 2017
Huge frothy white head. Excellent lacing. Mostly diminishing. Clear sparkling thin yellow body. Aroma: light malt, light hoppy, citrus orange, green grape, pineapple. Initial flavor: moderate sweet. Final flavor: light sweet bitter; average duration. Palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Comments: excelente aroma frutado, caráter lupulado frutas tropicais, nao parece aroma de ipa, sabor igualmente frutado, lembrando uva verde e maracujá e trazendo presença metálica como defeito. Muito saborosa, deliciosa, mas não me lembrou o estilo em praticamente nada, principalmente pelo fato do tradicional amargor lupulado não aparecer na escala tradicional. Lembra uma saison – neste caso, muito bem feita. 110 s tmzl (320) - SLOVENIA - FEB 11, 2017
Floral honey backbone, sweet tropical fruits, white grapes, medicinal brett and saisonish peppery grapefruit zest medium bitterness toscanoigor (297) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - JAN 21, 2017
Cerveja amarelo-palha, turva, formação muito abundante de espuma, até excessiva. Aroma discreto de malte, um pouco de grama, pinho e leve frutado, não consegui sentir as Brettanomyce. O sabor tem uma leve acidez de fermentação selvagem, mas bem discreto. Corpo leve, não tem muito de IPA, lembra mais uma saison. Cerveja confusa, embora não seja de todo ruim.

hazy golden colour, huge white head with adequate density; aroma of floral honey, earthy notes, grape and hints of citruses; taste of honey, grape, earthy-wine cellar notes, some overripe tropical fruits and bread; great IPA with moderate hoppy bitterness kapusil (1435) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 17, 2016
0.31l bottle. Slightly hazy golden body, white head. Aroma and taste of honey, nutmeg and citrusy, earthy hops. Quite bitter. I don’t get a whole lot of brett character, but it’s still nice. ciocanelu (2597) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 15, 2016
End of best by date. Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma pops with bright citrus fruits and wildflower honey. Some tea-like hops in the background. I don’t really get any yeast/brett character. Taste starts sweet with honey and malt, some brett character, finishes quite bitter and hoppy with floral notes. Body is quite smooth and well carbonated. Not really what I expected from a brett beer. It had a lot of time to dry out but it didn’t, it’s actually quite sweet at first until the hops kick in. Maybe it was just fermented with brett but not bottle conditioned. Anyway, overall it’s a nice beer with interesting flavors. SeniorZozo (1862) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 11, 2016
Bottle sharing @ Budapest // hazy liquid and big head. Hoppy aroma with spice notes. Taste is strongly bitter and dry finish. not bad. Oakes (17815) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2016
Hazy, light tan. Aroma shows more like stale hop, not much brett. Has a mellow brett note, soft pale malts and a sort of floral hop note.
