caesar (5045) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2009
Bottled from de Molen. Hazy brownish color, short head. Aroma is vinous, some vanilla, bit malt, bit fruity. Sour taste, fruity. Didnt know it was only 5.5%, was expecting a heavy bomber, as they are usually double barrel oak brewers reserve stuff :P

BoBoChamp (5382) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2009
75cl, new exclusive brew Anno 2009, sour brew with grapes, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex brew, yet refreshing, balanced, hazy, good head, nice brew, but expensive.

bierkoning (10100) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2009
Bottle. Amber color. Vinous aroma with vanilla, grapes and cherry. Light sour flavor with grapes, vanilla, just a touch of oak and toffee. Vinous notes. First rate thirst quencher, but not as complex and sour as I thought it would be.

MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2009 Bottle, 5.5%. The aroma starts off weakly fruity, with some vanilla from the oak. Some citric aroma notes as well, reminding me of Brett. Quite cloudy dark grey brown colour. Very small white head. The flavour starts off citric, very fruity and vinous. Tastes like grape juice, and even more acidic. Nicely refreshing. Some vanilla in the aftertaste, slightly rough bitterness.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2009
bottle at the Pre-ZBF, pours hazy amber, small off white head. Sweet orange and citris nose. Flavors are fruity with some earthy oak settling in toward the end. This would be great with a light fish, has some wine characteristics.

yespr (30902) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2009
75 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Mild acetone and vague chemical aroma, distinct wooden note. Dry malty and acidic with a light winegrape note. Mild acidic and slight acetone touch. Stays on the light sweet and mild fruity site without going Rodenbach like sour. Ends slight acidic and fruity.

JorisPPattyn (7879) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2009
Good dark, off-white head, creamy, over well-carbonated, amber-orange beer. Alcohol and fusels, vanilla, even to the impression of ice cream, and fresh, new oak. Vanilla, fresh greenery, enhanced by very obvious carbonation. Fruity finish, with strawberry, apples, raspberry and more vanilla - anything but grapes, it seems. Quite OK body for the ABV, on the verge of overcarbonated, which is kind of strange for a B-A beer. Nice, drinkable.
