Bottle from SL. Pour was amber/red-brownish blend, silent bottle opening but a small head yielded with the pour. The aroma was strong sour cherries and some grapes along with a bit of a brown malt base of caramel (think oud bruin style of sours). More subtle hints of oak were present and a sweet-tart type of character was there too. The flavor developed all of what the aroma had present, while also introducing a firm tart/sour bite that was pretty gentle once adjusting from the previous beer. This certainly was no Cantillon-disruptive product (in a very good way). Mouthfeel was full and smooth, some definite acidity. Pretty nice stuff except for the price.

Tap at the Diamond. Poured a clear mahogany with no head. Very interesting wine and vinous nose. Very lightly carbonated beer that is as close to a wine as a beer could, maybe. It’s fruity with some sweetness. But the finish has a nice sour edge. Massively sour? Not the keg we had. But very interesting and enjoyable.

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

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.
