4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
2004 Bottle. Upon opening, botle slowly fizzed out of the top. Poured a cloudy dark orange probably from the sediment that got kicked up from the gushing. Lots of carbonation but the head diminishes very fast. Aroma is outstanding, acidic pineapple brett with freshly emptied red wine barrel. Flavor has a somewhat sweet crystal malt base that quickly gets overrun by the acidity and the cask influence. Slight horse blanket funk but very low levels. More brett fruitiness combined with a light and fruity red wine and oak. Also has flavors of apple cider. Alcohol is extremely well hidden and is hard to think that this is 13%. This beer is quite amazing.

11,2 oz bottle multiple times from notes. Pours a clear dark amber brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have Belgian character, sweetness balanced by tart fruit, red wine character, oak, no sign of the abv, I always enjoy seeing this one, a favorite from my early days on the site that I get to revisit from time to time.

330ml bottle (2012) from the brewery. Saved for a special occasion. And that occasion was me running low on beer. Hugely complex sour with all sorts of murky oaky red wine flavours getting a nose in. Powerful, exceptional sour.

2009 bottle. Pours a dark and hazy brown off white head that stayed around a while. Aroma of tart sour, wood, apples (granny smith) and a touch of dark fruit. Taste is raisin, wood, field grass and apple. A hint of sweetness up front and a gorgeous Dry and refreshing and tart on the finish. Medium MF. Just a fantastic beer.
