4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
375ml bottle, bought at Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Near-clear amber with a glint of red. Dissipating white head. Patchy surface. Dry and semi-tart berries on the nose. And again, a sweet and tart taste profile of raspberries and ripe fruits. Herbal dry ending. Quite well bodied. Cleansing down the swallow. Okay, but really not my kind of good beer drinking (hotel room, Copenhagen 26.05.2013).

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
