Can you post up a recipe/tasting notes? How did you like it?

I'll see if I can find the paper I scribled the recipe notes on. I quit doing kits and recipes long ago and basically decide to brew something, look at what I have and use my imagination loosely based on what I have learned here, descriptions of hops flavors and so on. I like to be creative and experiment keeping just enough notes so I could probably reproduce it if I wanted to.

Anyway, I have brewed a few Bretts and so far I must say the taste is unique and I am uncertain if I have failed or succeeded since I have yet to find a comparable commercial beer to compare flavor to. However, at first I did not care for the strange flavor but over time I have actually grown to like it. Defenitaly sour which I actually like and the one I did with fruit additions I like even better.

Oh, I used about 40% wheat in both which for aging a beer is a no-no they say, did not know that then, but then again I have yet to have any horrible off flavors from wheat beers I have kept for several months or longer.

Brett has a reputation for being particularly resilient and long-lived. It wouldn't surprise me at all if it carbonated up just fine, although it may take an extended period.

I just checked ratebeer.com and you can get it there but i'm not sure exactly which place. If you look around and can't find any then I will gladly send you a few (one to drink and some to cellar). There are threads on ratebeer talking about if Orval is the best beer in the world and I think it could be. I really can't stress how effing awesome it is if you like brett.
