beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Tasted at the Triple Rock Sour and Barrel Aged Fest on 2/10/2013.This wild ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, oak and chardonnay grapes. A medium bodied sour ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy, A lot more woody and funky than the sauterne edition. Some grape tannins and oak. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly funky.

Azand222 (170) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle pour dark hazy amber with a thick foamy cream head. The aroma is very strong from un capping the bottle, wild yeast pretty dominant. The chardonnay comes through in the finish; a light fruity beer. Overall not too sour in the taste, a very good wild ale. Leaves a nice lingering of alcohol in the throat.

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2013
Fad: Orange klar øl med en lækker duft af druer og let brett. masser af eksotisk frugt i duften som går over i smagen. ikke sur på nogen måde men forbandet kompleks og ekstrem drikbar. flot og lækker øl.

Pinball (10686) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2013
dark orange, smooth light brown head. aroma if exotic fruits, wild yeasts, wood, white wine. flavor of white wine,wood, brett. A litle bit too woody and woody bitter i think, in fact i prefer the unbarrelled version. However, the wine barrel does add more complexity and interesting nuances.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
Draught at Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen
Hazy dark amber color with creamy head. Pedantic Bretty aroma, with some rubber. The body is quite strong, there is still some minimal residual sweetness; it has some Brett character, evident astringency, white grapes, a bit of vinous impression, tannins. Correct bitterness.
Good but messy.
