FatPhil (14174) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 3, 2012
750ml bottle (Alvinne Webshop) - shared with Marduk - thanks!
Lovely fruity winey aroma on pouring. Raisiny, but in the glass a classic woody oud broun sour aroma. Crisp body, pleasant oaky buin taste. Raisiny, some other fruits too, aromatic and uplifting too. With yeast, you get quite a burnt taste too, and some butter. Much better poured clear without the yeast. Very complex, sourness at a nice mellow level. Clearlyactually sour, ans well attenuated, so there’s little more than (of?) the fruity sugars remaining. Finish has gentle butteriness, and winey raisins. Lots in here for sour lovers and sour skeptics too.

Christian (12958) - 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

bierkoning (12589) - 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.
