Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Served on draft at the Michigan Summer Beerfest, 2010, as part of RBSG festivities. Pours a hazy dark orange amber color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Tart aroma of cherries, peaches and an earthy funkiness. The taste is very tart cherries, apples, a bit of vinegar and lemon. Thin-medium bodied. Nice beer.

madsberg (11283) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2007
Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Dense off white head. Sweetness, light vinegar and some fruits in the nose. The characteristic brett is there. Flavour as well has brett-notes. Light sour vinegar, fruits and spice comes to mind. Quite complex. Is medium to full bodied. Qutie dry. Is grapish and light bitter in the end. Very refreshing. One of my favourites from JP, which IMO keeps a pretty high standard.

Dogbrick (10889) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2012
This beer pours a hazy brownish-red color with a medium light beige head that dissipates slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Fruity aroma of apples and cherries. Medium body with flavors of tart cherry, yeast and wood. The finish is fruity with a lingering funky aftertaste. Good beer all around.

Rounded flavour of fruity tartness, caramel malts and spices. Quite lively carbonation. Slow building and a bit heavy to drink. Average to my palate and rating (Copenhagen, 17.05.2009).
