Courtesy of Philippe. Beautiful slightly hazy pour. Souring oak and green apples are intense to smell. Slight touch of vanilla and cherry. A mouth wateringly juicy intensity that fires complexity like a laser beam, with my tastebuds seemingly picking up a whole range of flavors all at the same time. Wow huge flavor range with diverse adventures at each sip. very nice

Clear medium to dark red amber color with a small to average, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, caramel, moderate to light heavy berry, berry sour, moderate cherry, wood, medicine notes. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and heavy acidic with a long long duration, aand a very dry finish. Good stuff ;o) Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft to flat.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2009
750ml bottle from a recent trade with darkguardian... Pours a medium caramel brown with a quickly dissipating white head... aroma of wkd and vinegar that finishes sweet...Acidic vinegar flavor and finishes on a sweeter note. Sharp biting acid at first that smoothens out. Begins to get more palatable as it warms.

Appearance: Pours reddish brown with a small white head. Aromas: Tart earthy aromas. Flavors: Earthy tart plum flavors with a little alcohol. Overall: An excellent brett beer but a little over priced.

Plovmand (7883) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2009
Bottle. Hazy yellow body with a small white steady head. Sour berries, fruit, acid, malt and oak in aroma. Lovely flavour of berries, oak, citric fruit, acid and light caramel. Flemish sourish. Creamy body. Great sour!

Poured from one of the supposedly six kegs available worldwide at The Lion’s Pride in Brunswick, ME! This is an interesting beer with sour and sweet elements. Cherry is the main flavor and aroma--it has both of the main flavor elements. It’s a medium bodied beer, but has a carbonation that makes it feel richer.

Systembolaget (11) - Malmoe, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2009
Muddy dark brown red ale with a small light brown head. Aroma isfruity and dry with hints of immature apples. Flavor is sour, fruity of green apples and with notes of vineagra. Remindes me of a belgian red ale.

Bottle thanks to some swiss chap that brought some awsome bottles to a random tasting at the rake. Alround rating: I like this rating and the chap that brought the bottles was interested by this responce: Tannin acidity off a plummy fruit character reminisant of a rioja reserva. Very good.
