I couldn't taste anything besides the Brett, and apparently it's not my thing. If I didn't know any better I would have said it was spoiled or skunked..

exceptional Brett aromas and flavors. Some belgian yeast notes come through. Great balance of flavors. Mouthfeel is correct for the style. As with any brett-ish beers there will be variation.

It smells like blueberries and raspberries. The taste is a very complex mix of bitter and sour berries, fruit, and citrus. It's kind of dry, however very good, Anchorage killed it again.

This is a full frontal brett assault beer. You will get lots of brett in the aroma and the flavor and almost no character of the base beer. No nice estery fruit notes from the Tripel, no bready crackery malt aroma, no spiciness. All brett! If you love that - great! If you want to taste the base beer look elsewhere - this beer could have been any style and no one would know the difference.

Light and slightly hazy gold. His white head. The smell is of Brett and malt...a little alcohol and esters. Apricot and underripe peach fruit flavors are underneath. Semi dry, fruit flavor is fresh and full. Spicy. Underlying belgian flavor....this is a solid brew.

Light peach, hazy with no head with a small rim of tiny bubbles on the side.
Huge fruit aroma. Smells like a sour. Yeast.
Taste like a sour. Huge citrus fruit. Mostly lemon !
Sour feel. Dry to the taste. Lasting fruity hops.
Belgium Triple? Lambec perhaps?
Either way, refreshing.
