3.95/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a hazy, but bright golden orange. A large rocky white head forms and leaves rings of lace.
S: A medley of fruit flavors apples, pears, ect. Yeast and some doughy malt. Very similar to the Tomme Aurthur.
T: Again, fruity flavors that follow the nose, and closely resembles Tomme Aurthur. Though this seems even more tart and sour.
M/D: A medium to full body, but over carbonated for my tastes. A touch of prickly alcohol. Though it is still very easy and smooth to drink.

If you like Reserve Signature Ale (w/ Tomme Aurthur) you will like this as well. Very similar. I would like to try these side by side.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

a: This was a mostly clear pale golden color. It poured with a massive, long lived, craggy, and sticky off-white head.

s: This had a mild but complex nose. Sweet grains and a little vanilla are punctuated by prickly, yeasty aromas of green apples and apricots.

t: This one is difficult for me to describe. Yeasty flavors seem to dominate this one. Moderately tart apple with a little apricot and some slightly sweet grainy vanilla towards the end. Subtle, mellow, and intriquing.

m: Long lived, semi-aggressive carbonation and a lingering, funky bitter bite.

d: I loved this and I have never had anything quite like it. Highly recommended.

I got this bottle in a trade with Nutbrown. Thanks Alan!

750ML caged and corked bottle.

This pours a hazy orange gold with a 2 finger head of foam. Lots of lacing and the foam looks like it's going to stick around for a while.

The smell, I noticed immediately upon opening the bottle, is of citrus hops, fruit, and spice. And some funk. Actually, lots of it. Makes me want to dive right in.

The taste is huge! Lots of funk and wheat dominate the intial sip with light notes of citrus hops and not so light notes of peppery spiciness. Some sweetness way in the background that gets stronger with further sips but man, the Brett notes are what's drawing my attention and there are some really nice tart notes that are starting to really shine. What a brew! The foam shrank to about an inch but it's very irregular in shape.I've got a seperate "pile" near the middle of my glass that stands above the rest of the foam. Very unusual but pleasing to my eye.

The mouthfeel is medium, the carbonation is on the light side, and it finishes with a funky-tart-bitterish delight. Yum.

Drinkability? 8.5%abv? It sure doesn't show up in the nose or taste and there's just a very light warming after the swallow. Super well hidden and the flavours I'm getting demand that I pick up the glass again and again. Man, this is some damn good stuff!

Bottom line: Definitely the most Brett centered brew I've had in ages and a sheer delight to drink. I can't call this one anything but world class. A *must* try if the style is something that you appreciate. Thanks again, Alan!

Bottle sampled on 09/26/08 at Night of the Funk. Pours a cloudy golden yellow/orange with a small white head. Aroma of honey, melon, wheat, and funk. Flavor is quite funky, with a slight tartness and sweet fruit notes (apple mostly), and some Belgian yeast. Pretty good beer.

A: Hazy golden color with a finger of white head. The haze was suspended in the glass and really never fell to the bottom.

S: Funk. Sweet sweet funk. A little bit of sweetness. Then barnyard. Apples. Overripe fruit. Wet goat. Awesome.

T: Like I ate some hay. Tons of funk. Some fruit thrown in there for a pitiful attempt to stop the funk. There was a slight hint of hops in the finish.

M: Very crisp and bubbly.

D: All day long. In a year or so this would probably smooth out but I enjoyed this animal fresh. Animal is the right word I would use as this beer tasted like wet fur. Recommended to those down with the groove.

Well well, another collaboration from De Proef. This time they've brought Jason from Allagash onboard, lessee what they come up with... I'll go on record as saying I love collaboration beers!

Les Deux Brasseurs pours a hazy deep yellow and boasts a healthy-looking, plump, dense off white head. The head lingers and teases the senses. Great stuff.

Hmm! Funky first and foremost (heh) and then there's all manner of interesting things popping up. Ripe pineapple, black pepper spice, apples, alcohol warmth, a little musty attic malt, altogether sweet and lush, mouth-watering. Delicious!

The nose is indicative of the flavor; a sweet / sour funky boat laden with tropical fruits, sugar, bready yeast, spice, esters of all descriptions, lemon and a fine citric acid flavor that is complementary and the sits on the tongue long after the beer is gone. This is sweet, but all the complementary flavors keep it from becoming overly so. It all works together in an odd, happy way.

Carbonation is full and fluffy, the brew is wet and finishes tart and spicy-clean. Simply wonderful!

Overall impression? A fruity, funky, cleansing and complex beer with loads of character. The best beer from De Proef and possibly one of Allagash's best, too. Les Deux Brasseurs is a unique, memorable brew that works and will doubtless get even better with age. My only complaint is that after writing this I wish I had another! Highly recommended.

A: Decently clear amber body. Nice white head.

S: BRETT BABY!! Apples and malt, but all funk.

T: This is raw! Hay, straw, and horse blanket but not the dustiness I usually find with brett. Nice hop flavor in the finish.

M: Medium bodied but thick with brett.

D: I like it but it could use a bit more time. This will likely age like the best of fine wines because the residual sweetness that is currently in the beer is great food for the brett that is right alongside. The hop flavor will likely decrease but the brett needs to clean up the flavor just a touch. Hope this doesn't result in bottle bombs because it was very carbonated to begin with.

One of the best, if not the best, beer that I've had this year. Poured into a tulip glass, it was a butterscotch color with a fairly thick white head. Nicely carbonated, pretty to look at. Ample lacing. Outstanding aroma, with pear, bread, and yeasty funk all vying for attention. The taste definitely lived up to the aroma. Sour apple/pear up front, then a sweet bread taste (like a German stollen), and a tiny bit of hops bitterness at the end. Nicely balanced. Incredible beer. I bought this at Tully's for $19, and it was well worth every penny.

Pours a nice cloudy/hazy yellow color with a tinge or orange in there, large puffy head that fades slowly to leave tons of lacing on the glass.

Smell is distinctly Belgian, lots of yeasty aroma, some lemony/orange zest.

Taste is a zinger, lots of funkiness going on that just lights up the buds, lots of citrus and yeast with who knows what else, slight sour pucker but not nearly enough to distract and for some probably not enough.

Thanks to koopa for the opportunity to try this wonderful beer! 750 ml bottle poured into my Duvel tulip glass.

A- When the bottle is uncorked it makes this wonderful fizzy sound but it does not overflow or gush. The body is a translucent golden yellow hue. Pours with an approximately 3 finger white head which slowly subsides to 1 finger and has perfect retention from there. Plenty of lacing is left all the way down the glass. The body is very hazy and cloudiness is uniform and very thick. Perfect and exactly what I am looking for in this style.

S- Some apples and pears definitely come to the nose first as well as some brett funk. This is accented by floral hops and has a nice sweet bready yeast backbone. The nose is a perfect balance between tart and sweet and I can't stop smelling it.

T- A lot of floral hops flavors upfront...but as one drinks it the apple and pear presence becomes more and more prominent upfront. These fruity flavors are somewhat tart and somewhat sweet. The backbone is filled with funky brett and sweet bready yeast. These flavors intensify for the finish as the fruity flavors turn more tart and a hint of floral hop bitterness, a good dash of spicy hop flavor, and a hint of alcohol also become present. What lingers is funky brett, medium residual floral hop bitterness, apple and pear tartness, and a hint of sweet bready yeast. There is a lot going on here and it is truly wonderful.

M-Medium carbonation and a body that is packed with yeasty smoothness but also has a noticeable Phenolic presence. Good but not as wonderful as the rest of the characteristics of this beer. Perhaps with a bit more age the mouthfeel would improve.

D-This is a wonderful beer that I have been taking my time with tonight. Its a bit pricey and not available in this area; but it is wonderful and worth the price. Its something that I would definitely trade for again and consume on a special occasion. The ABV is noticeable primarily in the mouthfeel but this still drinks like a session ale with really big flavors. You can tell a lot of hard work was put into this beer and a wonderful job done by De Proef and Jason Perkins of Allagash. I would have let this age a little bit more but I was too excited to try it! This is definitely my kind of beer!

I walked into Oasis this evening to pick up a Sam Adams Choc Bock and low and behold a bottle of this one sitting up on the shelp. I ran, grabbed, and brought it home with much haste. Served at a comfy 50 degrees, this one was consumed on 12/02/2008.

The pour was a wonderful deep, hazy, golden amber with a large frothy head of white on top. Rich side lacing and great retention, left no doubt in my mind that this one was going to be a killer.

Leaned in for a whiff and was blown away. Large, funky brett notes on top of a wonderful layer of rich spice. Hints of grain and light bready malts, touches of pears and peach, just a wonderful, warming aroma. The flavor though is where its at. This was tremendously good. Rich, warm, inviting flavor of funk, just mixed in slightly with a spiced apple and pear tone, that was just perfectly placed. Wondeful notes of pepper like spices, smooth grass like hops and a rich warm note of light grain. Wondeful consistency and a smooth, mellow follow through that was just sublime.

Overall I was shocked by how good this one was. The first collaboration I thought was stunning but this one was other worldy. I need to find more, now.

Appears a hazy, light gold with a small white cap that never fades. Tons of scattered lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of tart brett, citrus, lemon, white wine, and earthy, zesty, hops.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with sweet white grape and white wine flavors mixing it up with some tart pumelo thrown in the mix.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, sugary, silky, tart, citrusy, mildly herbal, and a touch of spices.

On tap at Capone's on Black Friday at lunchtime, then again at the Farmhouse beer dinner later that night.

A-Golden with hints of apricot, a modest white head and some nice lacing.

S-Lots of brett character in the nose along with biscuity malt, apricot and lemon.

T-Deliciously funky. Apricot, sour cherry, honey and funky notes of all kinds.

M-Tart with medium carbonation and a bit dry.

D-I would gladly have another, and another and...

We had a bottle of this a few weeks ago which was rather disappointing. I think it just needed more time for the brett to work. This is outstanding on tap. I hope our remaining bottle tastes this good when we break it out in 6 months.

Pours a quite cloudy orange into my glass, with ample puffy white head. The head lasts the entire glass, and laces a sheet down the sides. There is no constant bubbling however, which I would have expected from a beer of this effervescence.

Aroma... how to describe it? Like Honeycomb cereal with some really old brie and a tinge of cat piss. There's some lemon, some barn, but those are just elements. The essence of it is the brie and honeycomb. Great aroma.

Flavor starts off with some sweet honey/caramel notes, along with a good bit of those chewy orange slice candies. Then it transitions to the cheese from the nose, some orange peel, and a deep, earthy backbone of hopping. The finish is the exact same aftertaste as brie that's been in the fridge for months.

Very high carbonation accentuates a medium-light body that has a tendency towards syrupy. The finish is dry and lightly spicy.

This beer will probably improve drastically with age. Once the brett is able to take care of a little more of that residual sweetness... this one will be a contender for a top spot among brett beers. If you have one or access to one, get it and bury it for a year or two. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

This brew caught my eye in RSVP in Portland today but I held back, since the price was slightly prohibitive and my basket was heavy already. Luckily right down the road at the great lost bear they had it on tap. Serendipity! Is this the tangible benefit to 'beer karma?'

A: Delivered in a small flight tasting glass with a healthy head. The beer was a foggy blonde. The lacing and retention on the head were incredible.

S: Holy moly. Smells of a blended lambic or wild ale. Heavy on the citrus and mighty sour.

T: I swear this is half lambic, half tripel. Balances well even though there's no chance I could categorize it.

M: Crisp, tart sharpness on the tongue, roof of the mouth, not too full and not too carbonated. Beautiful.

D: As with any lambic, wild, geuze, flanders, whatever, I'd love to drink them all day. Then, as I lie in agony with an ulcer and 5 bottles of Rodenbach and 5 of Boon Geuze around me, I'd realize the folly of my ways. I would love to have this again and will have this again. Just not in huge quantity.

Got this from a recent trip to Wine Gallery (Brookline, MA). Their beer guy Kai (kaimcm) said it was something that I couldn't live without, so here goes...

Brown 750mL bottle with synthetic cork (first time I've seen that). No date.

Appearance: Somewhat cloudy, amberish-gold, with 1/2 inch white sudsy head that sticks to the glass like glue.

Nose: Green apples, raspberry, cherry, lots of sour aromas, a touch of fresh cream, and a wee little funk out there somewhere.

Palate: Wow. Hang on. Don't know what to say yet...Moderate carbonation. The texture of this beer is fantastic. It's woody, sour, rough, a little sweet up front, and tannic-ly dry on the finish. Flavors are all over the map, with all the fruits from the nose plus fresh oak bark, wool blanket, dried wild rice, a little tin or maybe better said as mineral (river bed rocks).

Notes: The nose seems rather focused on the sour fruits, and had me a little worried, just a little. But the palate is explosive and chaotic, a wonderful cornucopia of flavors, both earthy and fruity, and the texture is fantastic. A truly unique beer with lots to offer. This one should be given to people who think that beer can't be as complex (if not more complex) than wine.

Two minutes after the sip, my mouth is tingling and I can still taste everything. What a finish!

Cheers to Kai for making me buy this!

Great beer... I've not experienced a lot of the "wild" ales so I'm not as sure about what to write on this one... pours golden, thick rocky head... aroma is fruity and yeasty (not as funky as expected)--- funk comes out in the flavor though... sour and earthy, with just the right amt of sweetness... a true example of the amazing power of yeast to produce flavors that you just couldn't imagine coming from the ingredients in beer.

Golden honey, dense foam. Rockly lace. Aromas of belgian sugars, yeast, bready biscuit and candy malts as well as herbal hop vapor and brett essence. Taste is of bread and brett up front. with a bit of biscuity malt and herbal hop in the middle. The finish is spritzy and dry and the brett is subdued but still lingers. Mouthfeel is spritzy and light, yet creamy and lush. Drinkability remains strong. Nice.

Really good beer. One of the most interesting and creative brews I've tried in quite some time. When I purchased this beer, I wasn't quite sure what type of belgian I picked up. Upon uncorking, I was pleasantly surprised by a sour, tart, and sweet fruit smell. Nearly on par with flemish sour ales. Very, very nice. Frankly, I was taken aback by the first sip, and not exactly in a good way. The musky, barnyard character was startling and a bit overwhelming for an unsuspecting drinker. Second sip, better. Third, very good. Earthy, spicy, and a slightly fruity. Given the complexity and gravity of this brew, it is surprisingly drinkable and the sour/tartness makes for an incredibly refreshing beer.

How can this not be good. Two of my favorite brewers coming together to collaborate on one beer. It is like the awesomeness of Voltron. Great on their own but unstoppable when they combine forces for all that is good in the world.

There is so much to like here. It really has aspects of a lot of styles, a little bit for everyone if you will. Bret rears it head and gives some great lactic notes, combined with some of the floral hop notes. It is hard to drink this 'cause it smells so damn good. Pineapple, key lime, some sweeter mushroom notes like oyster or sweet cap, orange pith and honeycomb. It is all here.

On first taste this seems simple almost one dimensional, but far from it. This is subtle but has tremendous depth and complexity. All of wich I think will continue to develop in bottle, I will surely stash this with the wine in the basement.

Lacy, creamy and snappy all at the same time in the mouth. Great dissapating carbonation and wonderful clarity. You can't help know exactly what this is striving to be.

Got to stop typing and start drinking, too distracted by this to not fully enjoy it.

Pours a golden-orange honey color with dense white foam that laces down the glass.

Sweet funky fruit and spicy scents jump out. Sugar, honey, fig, sour dough, spicy phenols and some apricot and grapey smells. Hint of barnyard.

Taste is similar to the nose. Rich, sweet fruity and slightly caramel maltiness underscored by a funky sour brett presence which creates a nice depth of flavor. Clean, yet rich and fruity. Almost a restrained or subtle Flanders Red, especially if you get the yeast stirred up.

Soft and smooth with a medium body feel, no watery mess here.

Highly (and dangerously) drinkable and worth the $16 price-tag Id say.

ok, I'm a huge allagash fan. I've been drinking their product since their second year of existance. I'm on a business trip in PA and I see this bottle for sale with Jason Perkins as a guest brewer at De Proef. Hello, I'm buying.

A - a tale of two halves. first large glass is crystal clear golden yellow collor with a huge billowy white glass. the last glass from the bottles picks up a haze from the sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

S - a belgiany yeasty, sweet fruity malt effect with an undertone of funk and horseblanket.

T - I could peel this back and savor for a bottle more or two. velvety belgian candi sugar, belgian yeasts, caramel, fruit, classic allagash yeast strain, spicy peppery notes, a hint of tart sour leathery notes. It ebbs and flows wonderfully.

M - medium full bodied, nicely carbonated, crisp with a dry sharp finish.

D - an entertaining medly of flavors from the first sip to the last.

wow, a cool collaboration and if you like a tart beer, I'm imagining this developing quite a tart / gueze character over a few years in the cellar.
