2008 Bottle, thanks Mike! Hazy Amber, thin tan head. Nose is cherry Brett, vanilla, alcohol, nice caramel. Flavor follows, cherry, vanilla, caramel and some persisting booze. Finish is perhaps a bit thin from the alcohol but still Damn nice.

Not quite getting the hype here. A little thin but manages to hide the 9% extremely well. Really smooth but lacking slightly in the flavor department for me. Solid but a touch overrated in my opinion.

750 ml corked and caged bottle thanks to lukaduke. Thanks man! Pours a semihazy copper with a white head of foam. Fair retention. The aroma is somewhat tart, yeasty, oaky, and sweet. Tastes more sweet and oaky than anything. The wine comes across as a tannic finish. Medium to full bodied with a medium carbonation.

Refrigerated 75 cl bottle poured into a trappist glass. Pours slightly hazy orangish amber with medium white head. Nice brett aroma, medium body, medium carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is fruit (pear and some orange), brett, some oak, some vinous flavors, and semi-dry finish. Good beer.

Alla spina. Birra di stampo belga arrichita con fermantazione con brettanomices. Di difficile catalogazione.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
October 2012 bottle (11 months old).
Appearance: The body is amber with a light haze. The head is short and thin with poor retention. This isnít a very appealing beer.
Aroma: The aroma is slightly of red wine vinegar with hints of cherry and a backing of lightly tart lemon and leather, there are also hints of oak tannins and dry red wine. The aroma is mild, but smells nice.
Taste: The intro is of tannins, dry red wine and hints of alcohol, but it is taken over by leathery and dry Brett. Oak is big throughout, but not overbearing and the Brett has really taken hold. The finish is of Brett, alcohol and tannins, hints of cherry, with a light warming sensation lingering.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: I remember liking this a lot more, I remember a lot more fruitiness of cherries and a lot more sweetness along with hints of sour. I need to try this fresher, before the Brett has changed this too much. This is still a good beer, just not something I would pay $20 for in this state.
