Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2009
Bottled. An unclear pale brown beer with a lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, wood, wine, caramel, and some lacto. The flavor is sweet and acidic with notes of wood, brettanomyces, wine, caramel, and malt, leading to a tart finish.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2009
[2412-20090801] Bottle. Barrel-on-the-floor aroma also suggests fruit and beans. Hazy, dark tan orange body with a quick foamy off-white head. Sweet fruity malt flavour has a long wood barrel aftertaste. Medium-full body. Average, didn’t really capture my interest.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2009
2009-08-01. Hazy pastel golden body body, modest beige head. (3+) Interesting aroma, fruit/wood/bourbon? (6+) Flavour is a bit muddled, light sour touches, wood, mild malt is odd. Average palate. Meh. Okay, but muddled at times, doesn’t come together very well at times. Bottle at BCTC

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Bottle at the brewery. This copper ale poured with a decent beige head and a delightlful oak aroma. The wild yeast provides a delicious sourness to the mild base. It is a very subtle but well-crafted flavor that has benefited from 8 months in a burgundy barrel.

Bottle at Alvinne. Pours amber with a nice yellow/beige head. Medium body with firm carbonation. Flavor is oaky and vinous.Malt and mild spice. Lightly (word in note is smudged). Flavors dance around. Finish is dry. It is an extremely tasty beer.

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2009
Bottle. Over-eager to get out of the bottle, the head died down somewhat after a dramatic start. Hazy, red copper colour with some sediment. Intense vinous aroma, quite a bit of woody notes, sour fruit. A lot of berry flavours, strawberries, hints of vanilla, sour fruit, an dry wood, especially towards the finish. Great stuff.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - JUL 3, 2009
Bottle. Cloudy reddish amber coloured brew with a big frothy white head. Aromas of spice, oak, fruity sweetness and slight balsamic. Flavour is tart and dry with notes of sour fruit, wood, spice and apples. A bit weak and thin.
