thewolf (11264) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours hazy light brown with a nice, staying, creamy beige head. Aroma has notes of raspberries, brett, light roasted notes, oak, apples and a slight pepperiness. Highish, prickly carbonation, fine and light mouthfeel. Flavour has brett, oak, super dryness, light apple. Some roasted notes in the background with some milky chocolate and grapes. This is the winter beer, morphing into a spring beer. Nice!

Tmoney99 (11100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2006
Bottle. Poured hazy brown with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate tart citrus spice aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and bottle conditioned thin particles. Medium sour flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.
