meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2010
Bottle@Home. Very much surprised by this beer. Brett aroma. Light sourish, sweet, fruity, light bitter. Quite complex brew yet highly drinkable. Extra points for the exceptional flavours.

sayravai (4706) - 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.)

Bottle at 2nd BBF @ De Molen. Nice rounded aroma with clearly some fresh grapes and red wine. Still very well balanced and only slightly sour and somewhat sweet. Very nice brew.

Scopey (11358) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle at Het Oude Schooltje, thanks to Dale. It pours hazy dark red-brown, with a thick off-white head. The nose is sour Granny Smith apple, tart lemon, wild strawberry and bret. yeast. The taste is juicy tart cherry, strawberry, raspberry, red grape, Granny Smith apple, farmyard and wood with a long tart finish. Not overly complex, but very drinkable stuff.

radagast83 (6657) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2011
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.
