Pale orange color with a soda like head that leaves a ring of foam clinging to the glass. Lots of bubbles rising to the top.

Fruity, earthy aroma with hints of white pepper and a mild funk.

Flavor follows the nose pretty well. Prominent orange and apricot. Mild spices. Not too sour but has a pleasant funky character. Subtle herbal hop. Well balanced.

Medium, bordering on full-bodied. High carbonation.

Overall, pretty good. Nice funky notes but I would enjoy a little bit more sour character from the Brettanomyces.

A 750ml bottle with no visible BB date. Purchased some time last year from Trembling Madness in York. The label describes it as a Belgian-style ale refermented with Brettanomyces bruxellensis.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A bright orange-amber hue with fine sediment and plentiful carbonation. Produces a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a thin surface layer.

S: Aroma of funky yeast esters with hints of tart yeast, hay, barnyard funk, apples, pears, white pepper, dry spice, a touch of lemon, earthiness and faint stewed leaves. A whiff of solventy booze in the background. Very nice.

T: Tastes of sharp, funky yeast esters with a bone-dry finish. Notes of tart yeast, barnyard aromas, hay, earthiness, mould, green apples, faint apricots, dry spice, mild white pepper, lemon and stewed leaves. A twinge of alcohol in the background. Very highly attenuated, followed by a leafy bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and exceptionally dry, with effervescent carbonation and good body for the style. Dries the palate thorougly. Intensely astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of sour, funky yeast esters, fruitiness, stewed leaves and booze.

O: Boom - a brett bomb! Funky and complex, not to mention drier than a desert. Looks great, while the aroma and flavour are amazingly yeasty with hints of tart fruitiness. Pretty boozy but generally well balanced. Mouthfeel is lovely - fizzy and dry. Resembles a well-aged Orval in character, with plenty of brett influence. A worthy brew that goes where other beers don't - give it a whirl if you have the chance.
