Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 26, 2012
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, malt, wine, and a bit of brett. The flavor is sweet and a bit acidic with notes of caramel, wine, grapes, malt, wood, and brettanomyces, leading to a tart finish.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 26, 2012
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of gn0sis. Pours an almost clear amber with an off-white head. Baking yeast aroma, with a slight tartness. Medium body, rotten fruit, baking yeast, minerally and salty. Clearly the sourness is from a bug blend - and hence not really convincing. 260412

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2012
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours mostly clear and amber with no head. The aromatic highlights are fruity, tart cherries and a small measure of caramel. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is an enjoyable fusion of caramel sweetness and tangy fruitiness - reminiscent of cherry Pixy Stix candy. Finishes sweet, tangy and fruity. Thanks goes out to landhoney for popping the top on this world class brew!

wedgie9 (1822) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Tasted on 2/11/12 from a corked and caged bottle. Pours a clear, fiery, light amber, with a thin white head that quickly dissipates, leaving just a thin collar of lace. The nose is a nice combination of caramel malt, sour citrus, perfumed red wine, and barnyard funk. The flavor is a bit more vinous and somewhat hot, with the caramel malt and barnyard funk coming through very nicely. The body is full and sticky with nice tannin, lighter than average carbonation and a long vinous and sour finish.

hbmason (1087) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 3, 2011
375 ml. Bottle pour. A cloudy amberish color with a white head. Nice brett sour taste. White grapes own the flavor. Nice.

On tap At the iron abbey beer dinner. White wine, champagne. Unique. Scarce so probably overrated.

Spookgolds (241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2011
On draft at iron abbey beer dinner. Nice sour ale, I can definately taste the grapes. Good one, they were right saying it was pretty close to wine.

thirdeye11 (5479) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2011
(375ml bottle) rich amber, the beer glows it’s so bright, ring of fine tan bubbles. Nose of funk, moss, cellar, grape, peppery, tannins and grape skin. Taste of grape, white wine, caramel, quite complex, winey without tasting too much like wine. Great carbonation and linger.

craftycarl21 (2204) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Huge thanks to jblauvs for this delectable brew. Cloudy teak colored pour with very minimal head. Nose is extremely vinous with big notes of grape, plum, tart nectarine, and big funky yeast components. Flavor has more excellent sour peach, grape, marmalade, and tart tannic presence. Palate is quite sharp but with really welcomed acidity. Excellent.

madvike (2657) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle shared by CaseyK - Red-amber pour with a thin white ring of head. Smells fantastic--funky and lightly malty with smooth oak and red wine. Very nice. Tastes much the same, with a long lightly tart, lightly sweet almost cherry finish. Totally different from Victor, but with the same sort of sweetness. Dries out more on the finish, with lots of oakiness. Smooth, carbonated--very nice.
