Bottle. Dark amber with small pale brown head. Aroma red wine, sour notes. Taste sour and fresh fruits. Finish dry, grapefruit and bitter. I´m not too fund of sour ales and don´t like grapefruits, so not a beer for me.

At a tasting, thanks Eurosanta, smallish cramy head, , very hazy dark orange colour, aroma of wood, with lemon and vinegar, aroma of wood with wine notes, red wine vinegar and plums, suprisingly strong bitterness, mellow medium sourness. Very nicely balanced, highly enjoyable.

Bottle at home, pre honeymoon bedtime beer thanks to an IP trade with Jan, 15/04/14. Lightly hazed dark amber/chestnut brown with a well appointed beige covering that dissipates in its own good time. Nose is stinking brett, caramel fudge, light poo, woody tones, bitter orange marmalade, straw, damp flannel. Taste comprises bitter stoned fruit, dank tones, bretty pa pangs, light acidity, bitter oange marmalade - kind of gone off having left the lid ajar, tarte fruit, raisens. Medium bodied, fine carbonation big brett load and tangy fruit in a semi drying close. Solid brett forward sour.

SlackerMads (2907) - DENMARK - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle. Hazy hazelnut brown with a medium sized diminishing off white head. Pretty heavy nose with lots of leathery brett and barrel. The flavour has some lactic notes, sour berries, fruit stack, light citrus, oak, lots of leathery brett and horse. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Medium sweet with little bitterness but has a nice level of acidity to challenge the sweetness. Long lasting finish, dry and very light astringent with barrel notes and brett. Damn.

Beertobealive (508) - Courbevoie, FRANCE - JAN 28, 2014
Very Thin beige head which comes with a short fruity and lambic flavor. Very pleasant. Bordeaux/brown body. Taste of "duchesse de Bourgogne" with less bitterness. Excellent balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
