Tap @ OTH. Thanks Tony for putting this one on tap.
Pours murky brown/orange, light to fizzy off white head.
Aroma, lots of sour, funk and hints of wood.
Flavors, sour, hints of fruits, tartness, barrel, light vinegar. Leaves a lot of prickly wood finish on the back palate.
I was expecting a lot more sourness and this one just tasted great.

My Rating # 3300. Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, 2009. Pours cloudy brown with a small white bubbly head. Nose is deep and complex. Acetone, oak, berries, vanilla. Sweet and vinous with alcohol prickling the cheek. Heavy and extremely sippable. Tart and dry with a long lasting end. Loved it!

On tap @ Maxs. While both are enjoyable I liked the older version a bit better. Had with an 07. Still very complex, jsut not as sour and woody with that bigger body. More alcohol presence but still great.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2009 Bottle, 11%. Good vanilla aroma, has some citric and funky notes. Cloudy orange colour. No head. the flavour is nicely citric, good sourness, lactic. But still balanced. Bites a bit in the finish and has a little paint thinner in the finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle, 2008 vintage (assemblage January 2009), bought at Systembolaget, Sweden. Bottle No. 00276. ABV is 11.0%. Sediment in the bottle. Hazy orange-brown colour, moderate to low off-white head. Some of the haziness might be chill haze, I started drinking it too cold. Very nice sourish-fruity aroma with a distinct brettanomyces character. The flavour is distinctly sour but not extreme, very fruity and tart (notes of sour cherries and Bramley apples), hints of oak, with just the right hoppy bitterness in the dry finish. The alcohol is well hidden - if someone had told me that this was a 6% beer, I would gladly believe it. A very fine beer, but it requires that you are into the sour stuff (a "sourhead") to really appreciate it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Brouwer’s Cafe. A soft, delicate sour ale, in the spirit of Panil Barrique or Duchesse de Bourgogne. Silky, delicate palate, cherries, tartness, nice brett character, tight strawberries, caramel, bitter chocolate. Very good, but not exceptional. A bit of worchestershire sauce in the finish is slightly offputting.
