Ale brewed with summit hops. Triple fermented. First in French Oak Foudres, second in pinot noir and whiskey barrels with brett and other critters. Finally in the bottle for natural carbonation.

Poured from the bottle. Color was black with a slight head. Taste was both malt and sour notes. To me tastes like half porter and half sour, like a black ipa that is both hoppy with roasted characteristics. Following the sip, the bret fades into the background. Very nice and balanced, but might not satisfy someone looking for more sour notes.

Black, little head or lacing (barrel-aged) / Sweet and sour nose of cherry, dark fruit, oak / Medium body, clean, light chew with some woody tannins?, sweet but with good balance / Clean, young flavors of black cherry, blackberry, chocolate, balsamic vinegar, oak, light brett / A solid, well made, sour, with a solid flavor profile but crying for more brett character in the next batch.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a deep dark brown one with a quickly gone and light sidesticking beige top. Your can really smell the sourness on the nose here. A bit flemmish perhaps? Red sour berries and a nice sweetness combined with loads of brett and some rubber. Quite interesting and original. Great flavors also. Some paint tones, lots of acidic soaked in lime marinade berries and again tons of brett. Fresh and cool! Enjoyed. 03.05.2013

Pours dark brown to black with light reddish hue, low tan head. Aroma of cherries, bretta, chocolate, light basement. Taste is distinct cherry sour with light initial milk chocolate and hints of dark chocolate in the finish. Body is light and fresh with average carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (2836) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 30, 2013
Bomber. Sour, chocolate, and farty aroma -- like two-day-old garbage. Dark, near black color. Prunes and chocolate initial / mild and more of the same in mid / finish is more or less smooth. Medium body. Very unusual aromas. Mild flavors. Doesn’t go to extremes, despite all the bacteria treatment.

Bottle. Black with lace. Tangy, oaky nose, yogurt, vinegar, hcocolate, some coffee, orange, some licorice, compost. Choco-coffee sout flavor comes out more in the mouth, with tangy orange, cola, fudge, vinegar. Nice but I feel too young.
