Damico (2799) - 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 (783) - 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 (38081) - 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 (2903) - San Diego, California, USA - 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.

cpetrone84 (1661) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2013
pour is a slightly hazed pale ruby red with an off white head. Nose is bretty,some mushroom, lightly acetic, oak and faint vanilla, sour grape and cherry behind. Taste is more malt forward, faintly acetic finish with strong carbonation, much less barrel, some vanilla, white grape, lighter cherry, bandaid, lingering acidity. Flavors don’t exactly gel and nothing is super bright.

mjs (5112) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2013
(Bottle, 0.375 l, at Pudel Baar, 20130703) The beer poured reddish brown and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had sourness, wood, vineousness and malty sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were wood, vineousness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was woody, sour and bitter. An interesting brew and such one that pleased me.

brokensail (12508) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Amber pour with a white head. Really grassy nose. Straw, oak, and some sweet malt. Hints of white wine, sugar, lemon, and grape. Subtle tartness to the flavor. Earthy funk, white wine, grapes, and lemon. Sweet caramel malt and a bit of fruit.

daje (2633) - NORWAY - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle shared june 7th head to head against Sauternes Edition. Nice looking beer, hazy red-tinted amber body, small beige head. Fruity and vineous aroma, yeasty and spicy. Taste of malt, alcohol, raspberries, sour yeast and sherry. lasting wood and wine aftertaste. We find the Sauternes Edition the best of the two.

jesperhammer (3372) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2013
21-jUN-2013, bottle @home, from Ølbutikken. Tasted straight after the Sauternes edition. Clear amber with lasting, lacing off-white head. Aroma is a bit rough with brett, wine, gun powder, tartness, spice and yeast. Taste the same but not as rough. Very wine-like with loads of oak an leather. A tad more tart than the Sauternes edition. I prefer the Sauternes but this is still very nice.
