Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2009
It floods out of the bottle upon opening and the beer is unclear copper-orange-golden. The aroma is sour with notes of yeast, fruit and wood. The flavor is like sour wine and vinegar with notes of wood and fruit, and the finish is tart. Sounds worse, but it’s kind of OK.

DSG (9562) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 8, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2010 [9/24/10] Bottle at Borefts Beer Festival 2010. Dark reddish brown. Aroma of barnyard, cherries, oak and some more fruits. Sourish-sweetish flavor with malt, biscuits, some citric notes and a vinous fruitiness. Rounded-mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.

jercraigs (9154) - 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

JorisPPattyn (8897) - Ursel, 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.

marcus (8280) - 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.

sebletitje (8270) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2011
bottle 66cl from Alvinne Biershop. Batch#2, from 2009, bottled in June 2010. Ambrée brumeuse, presque pas de mousse si ce n’est qcq bulles le long du verre. Arôme de barrique et vin rouge, léger malt et caramel. En bouche, agréable et très léger, avec la levure Morpheus qui se fait discrète.Ressent un profile moyennement aigre le tout sur des notes boisées avec ce profile fruité rouge/raisins agréable. Petite pointe d’épice sur la fin.
