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

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a hazy reddish-pink color with a fluffy off-white head. S: The nose is somewhat light in intensity. A decent barnyard funkiness with some hints of red grapes and strawberries and a touch of acidity. T: A light tartness to the flavor with sweet grapes and strawberries. The funk is earthy and leathery and the brett and grapes provide a very dry feel to the beer. M: The body is medium with a lively carbonation and a dry finish. D: I was surprised to see this is 9.7% ABV, as the alcohol is very well hidden. However, the beer is fairly pedestrian as far as wild ales goes, and especially for one with grapes (which I really love).
