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

thebeertourist (4793) - 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.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 (Bottled, 0.75l) Hazy darkish amber with a small, firm head. Tart and wineous nose with peachy wild yeast, and a touch of acidity from the grapes. Mildly tart, bretty and fruity flavor with plenty of yeast, a touch of acidity, cloves and some cherries. Almost medium body with low, yet slightly fizzy carbonation. Quite mild and mellow overall, but quite enjoyable. Will cellar the other bottle for some years to let the brettanomyces really kick in. 4264 (Revisit 2013-11-02: Still only mild tartness present. Quite berry-fruity, not very interesting, almost watery. Good, but expected more.)

22/IV/13 - 75cl bottle @ Rampkrot (Deurne) - BB: II/2014 (2013-349) Thanks to 77ships for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy amber to orange beer, small white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: sour, vinegar, bretta, grains, bit sweet, caramel. MF: ok carbon, a bit much maby, light to medium body. Taste: sour start, green apples, lemony, bretta touch, some alcohol, woody, oak, little bitter. Aftertaste: woody, red wine vinegar if not so sour though, a nice sourness, bit bretty, dry, little bitter. A very nice and balanced sour beer!

Churchkey’s menu says "Sour Ale Aged in French Burgundy Wine Barrels w/ Dutch Blue Boskoop Glory Grapes" - so I’m assuming this is it. Poured a brown color with a small tan head. Aroma was sour grape notes, yeasty funk, touch of berry I’d guess. Pretty enjoyable.
