BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2013
I had this in the dark on a porch in Kansas City Missouri so I have no clue what color it was. The thing I enjoyed most was the choice of barrel. Pear, apple, oak, a touch of booziness and a low carbonation suiting an almost wine like character. Very funky and complex, would love to have again.

Davros (1909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2013
Pours amber with a quickly fading head. Nose shows horsey brett notes, sherbert, woody oak, soft white wine and elderflower. Enticing! Flavours include more funky Brett, elderflower, pear/apple wine notes, woody oak, sweet malt and sherbert. Very interesting stuff. Carbonation could be higher to suit the flavours.

k0mpsa (1117) - Järvenpää, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2013
Tap at mikkeller bar. Hazy reddish brown color, some white head. Aroma is fantastic, like cider, earth, stables, apples, sour notes. Taste is mixed beer and cider, sour apple notes, malty body, some hops. Nice and different.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle from Binnys South Loop (Chicago, IL). Finally decided to crack this set. Pours a similiar deeper orange amber hue, a gentle haziness but healthy deep summer sunset orange once again rues the day. A small frothy offwhite head sits atop as a mellow layer, dying to a small film and lacing small. Aromas show a bit more life here, white wine barrel gives a decent complexity of fruit, white grape meets a touch of tangerine, firmer melon. Some sweeter estery fruit elements scoot in with touches of biscuit and doughy bread. Mellow stone and dark fruit, gentle bretty funk inch it’s way in. Touches of oak. The nose really offers some good elements here. Initial is a bit more of the same from the base offering, a bit sweeter, caramel and bready malts mix liberally, hitting the fruit notes and shaking things up. A bit more sour off the bat than the original, some gentle almost lactic acidity, fruity esters. Some richer oak, vanilla. Funky cobwebs. Middle hits those flashes of vinous and oak mixing, some red and dark fruit, decent sourness comes along. White grape, cherry, and some decent oak presence keeps pushing. The beer is sweet but the barrel and apparently some more wild yeast influence has helped tame it a bit more. Backend is starts to show more bretty funk, bandaid, lingering sweetness. This isn’t bad and certainly has some strong elements (Nose, front). An improvement over the base for me.

Very much white wine flavor and aroma. Long aftertaste. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Great Funk on the nose, rose color worth light body. Sweet and shout with a hint of chardonnay. Another amazing Mikkeller creation.

Damico (2557) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Pours orange sunset with a big beige head. Aroma is my favorite part bringing sweet wild yeast and band aid for sure. Flavor is a tad less sweeter and more tar with wild yeast settling all over the back end. It is definitely drier as well from the Chardonnay barrel.

DoublEE (784) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Funky and lactic, with prominent white wine notes throughout and a dry pear/crystal malt climax with sprinklings of sour green apple about the climax. Some light tartness, but nowhere near as much as I’d like. Not real sour, but enough to satisfy. Balanced but disappointingly simple (especially for a barrel aged beer).

fonefan (34741) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2013

Bottle 375ml.

Clear matt medium amber orange colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, sweet dried fruit, figs, brett, wine, wood, leather notes. Initial flavour is moderate to heavy sweet, light acidic and bitter, finish flavor is moderate to heavy sweet, light light acidic and dry with a long duration, figs, dried fruit. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20130219]

Marheb (2013) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2013
Plus puissant et sauvage au nez qu’en bouche. Le caractère vineux est en parfaite harmonie avec les sucres résiduels et le cuir du brett. L’alcool est brillamment enfouie, j’en veux encore.
