75cl bottle, bottled on 11 Oct 2012. Pours reddish brown, no head. Aroma is strongly sour, with a hint of red fruit (rhubarb and cranberries, maybe?). Most of the sourness is on the front of the taste, with the darker malt flavors on the finish. The mouthfeel is thin, but right for a porter. Very pleasing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Almost no head, just some beige bubbles. Dark amber body, hazy. Bready and chocolate base and a refined hop but really mostly about the wild funk. Not as complex as I expected though - the sourness seems to lighten the body. Only a light, smooth carbonation. Taste has more of the interesting interplay of sourness and creamy malts chocolate malts that I was expecting. And done well! Ending has a warming feel and some dry bitterness. It really grows on me as well. Nice malt and fun balance. Nice! (75cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden, very friendly priced)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Ølfestival 2011. It’s a murky brown beer with a dense, small, beige head. Roasted, almost vinegarish aroma with some chocolate and lemony notes. Roasted flavor with some brett. A touch of something resembling, but probably isn’t, alcohol in the flavor. Sweetish, yet rather dry. A nice bitterness towards the end. Slightly sourish too. Full body. A rather unusual blend of hopped porter and brett, but I like it. 110527
