I agree with Bill.
Unless your buddy is a super beer nerd already who loves Belgians, Sours, Brett beers....you might want to do something a little more standard as a gift. Is he a homebrewer also? Craft beer lover?
This recipe is loaded up on dark malt, and I think that the roast flavors are going to really compete with the Brett flavors. Could be amazing, but could be totally conflicting...I dont know.
When I am serving beer to my non-brewer friends, or giving it as a gift, I always choose a recipe that I have dialed in and know is good.
