jercraigs (9253) - 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 (8696) - 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 (5170) - 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.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2009
Copper coloured with a medium head. Very weak light sour aroma. I would describe it as a Rodenbach mild with a more bitter woody taste. It is however a bit thin.

Christian (12553) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2010 June 2009: Cloudy amber with a big and lasting off-white head. Strong aroma of oak, giving me both coconut and wine. Dry and tart oak flavour, rather vineous. Very American in it’s character.

Borefts Festival 2010: Has developed more brett character, more funk, and a touch of popcorn. Tart cherries in the flavour

75cl bottle @ De Molen Shop. Pours a dark hazy amber/reddish with a full creamy egg white head and lacings. Nose is vinous. Red wine, oak and fruits. Smooth palate. Slight tart and dry end. Nice
