yngwie (15761) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle, 75cl. A dense, small, off-white head settles on top of an unclear, amber body with floaties. Herbal aroma with thyme, gale and some lemony brett-ish notes. Caramel hints. The flavor has some caramel, but it’s mostly herbal and lightly sourish. Some bitterness chimes in towards the end. A bit heavy on carbonation I think, full body. An interesting beer, but it lacks a bit on drinkability. 111105

thewolf (11651) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2010
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.
Light muddy amber with a small, staying, frothy, off-white head. Stunning aroma. Lots of brett, honey, oak, grapes, red apples. Manages to be sour, zesty, sweet and fresh at the same time as being very complex. High carbonation, good dry mouthfeel. Flavour is complex, but doesn’t come close to the aroma. Bretty and dry, apples, zestiness, malty sweetness (perhaps a bit too much?), oaky, tart, oranges, coriander. Complex and exceptionally drinkable.
