sayravai (4673) - 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.)

Bottled. Aroma is vinous, caramel malts, has some vanilla, a bit oak. Hazy, red-brown coloured with an off-white, thin head. The taste is a bit sour, sweet, very fruity, bit vinous again with some vanilla. Medium bodied. On the dry side. Nice.

77ships (4303) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2013
Obtained in a trade with Klaas. BBF 2014 – 2009 Vintage? 75 cl. bottle shared. Pours a darker fox amber with only some bubbles on the sides. Old lactic yoghurt grapes on the nose, yoghurt grapes, sour malts, lightly fermenting, moldy barrel,… Sour grape mash in the taste, light lactic, touch yoghurt, mash, sour barrel, light brett, rotting malts,.. Lightly fizzy, bit too high carb. Okay stuff not too bad.

ClubGonzo (4237) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle @ Kraddel’s TdG 2013 tasting, Antwerpen. Pours a dark cloudy orange body with a small white head. Nose is tart woody vinous grain tones, saison-ish yeast and light complex malt notes. Taste is smooth vinous light malts, sour hints and mild yeast notes. Medium to ligh body and medium to soft carbonation. Good, but fails to leave a truly lasting impression.
