BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle generously shared by Sparky. Burnt tangerine pour with an eggshell cap. Orange peel and grapefruit pith along with tart lemon, vinegar notes, sweaty laundry, dust, and wood. The Chardonnay accentuates the beer better than the other barrel. Still, not a favorite.

mcberko (6297) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
375mL bottle, pours a hazy dark copper orange with a medium beige head. Aroma is fairly subtle, with light notes of white wine, some wild yeast notes, and a bit of farmhouse. Flavour is much more vinous than the nose suggests, with prominent white wine upfront, followed by medium brett and farmhouse notes. While dominant on the white wine, it never becomes overbearing on the palate and remains highly drinkable with absolutely no notice of the 9+% ABV. Excellent stuff.

(375ml bottle) Pours a hazy orange body with small off-white head. Aroma of florals, leather, horse blanket, pineapple, and stone fruit. Flavor of brett, yeast, florals, subtle chardonnay butteriness, caramel, orange, mango, and light pepper.

jmgreenuk (4237) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
Tap at The Mikkeller Bar. Poured a hazy light red, rather like a rose wine. The aroma rich and fruity, leading to a slightly sour, yeasty, oaky flavour with the obvious Chardonnay too. Very tasty and a perfect beer for wine drinkers!

deanso (5181) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2013

BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 29, 2013
Chard bottle (cap is same as the Saut version: 8071210). Pours with a murky deep orange hued body with a medium sized and somewhat quick to fade slightly tan, off-white head with good lace. Aromas are of funky, hay, lightly herbal, a touch medicinal, white wine, berries. Really herbal notes, strong rosemary, almost aperol or something like that. Funky, light cola. Good smelling, but herbal and spicy overall. Flavors are big, bretty, some cotton candy, damp leaves, wet wood. Rich and robust chardonnay. Wish this was a bit smaller ABV wise. Intense and you can taste how big it is. Estery, ripe plum and dried apricot. Medium funk with some herbaceous-ness. Medium lively carbonation, medium bodied and warming. Good but bigger than expected/wanted. Really gets a bit messier as it warms, but I didn’t ding it in the score.

gunnar (5222) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 26, 2013
Bottle from Brewdog. Pours hazy deep amber with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma of fresh berries, malts, funky wood. Taste is smooth, silky mouthfeel, light sweet, with a sour edge, no sign of the 9% alcohol here, oaky light sour aftertaste
