Thanks, Beerlando! Pours a cloudy amber. Aroma is dusty, bretty and woody. Flavors follow, with a hell of a flavor in the finish. I really enjoyed this one.

On tap at the brewery. Dark amber with white head. Nice dough hits you first in the aroma with some interesting mint that could be hops, very malty. Big malt push with light bourbon, pine hop, very interesting. Creamy full body . Awesome hopped up doppelbock and barrel actually helps.

ACBF 2008. This one was interesting. I liked it quite a bit. They did a good job of balancing the flavor of the doppelbock and the dry-hop addition, neither is overpowering, but the interplay is nice and enjoyable.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
[my 5,300th rating]
Pours slightly muddy yellow-orange with a small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has wood, sweet sticky malts, strawberries, port and viniousness. Light, prickly carbonation, great dry mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly tart, lots of oak, light flowery hops, sweet malts, some berries and green apple. Wonderful, long bitterness mixed with oaky tartness.

Pours a deep reddish color with a good head and good lace. The aroma has some soapy notes, some good lemon rind, and a fair amount of horse blanket. The flavor is dry and mildly hoppy with some citrus and plenty of earthiness. The beer is dominated by a very tart and sour character. Pretty nice stuff.

Big liter bottle bonus from Mike, BBB63. Thanks dude. Pours a rich deep orange with a puffy tan head. Nose is hoppy, malty, sour and damn interesting. Taste is sweet, sour, and damn funky. This is really good.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2009
750ml hand-bottles by the brewery. Pours lightly hazy, dark orange-amber. A small, foamy blanket shows good retention, leaving cream colored, vertical columns of wet lace on the glass. The nose is quite interesting, notes of bready yeast, pale malt, mild caramel, and grassy, floral hops working together nicely. Oak, vanilla, and mild bourbon notes are accompanied by a dry, bretty funk overtone. Flavors are lightly tart from the brett, underlying caramelized bread notes and light candy, contrasting with zesty, grassy hops. The palate is medium-plus in body, smooth, and dry on the finish. Tasty stuff. Reminds me of the t’ij beers. Really good stuff.

Bottle #36 at Papsø’s blindtasting. Hazy orange coloured with a medium sized white head. Fruity aroma of brett, wood, hops and pine needles. Fruity flavour of brett, wood, hops and pine needles with notes of grape fruits. Hoppy finish.
