Bittle shared with staff at Paradiso Georgetown. Hazy golden amber color. Aroma of sourdough bread with an emphasis on the sour. Taste is softer, rising rye bread dough, soft funk, lemon peel, light spice, hint of white grape must, some dust. Very nice.

330ml bottle (Pudel Baar, Tallinn)
Lovely light fruity aroma, packed full of white grapes. Brett and sourness quite prominant, but well integrated with the fruits. Lovely orange, but only a brief head, then nothing. Slightly yeasty retronasals, a little earthy. Very mellow malts, soft sweetness, gentle fruitiness, less so than the aroma. Less acidic and funky than the aroma too. Absolutelt no hint of alcohol at all, it’s hard to believe this is anywhere near 9.3%. Finish drops back onto a lovely dry earthy bitterness. Very nice, clean and invigorating, and very well crafted. Does seem to get a little flatter in the mouth as you drink it. The carbonation’s low, and the acidity from the sourness doesn’t quite act as a substitute. Alas, this is more expensive than Cantillon Gueuze is in Helsinki, and I know which one I prefer.

Pours deep murky amber into a tulip. Off-white bubbly head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Band-aid and oak aromas. Sweet band-aid upfront turning to aspirin and caramel before the slightly sour grape and oak finish.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2013
A steady pour into my New Belgium globe glass produces a one-finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a rich amber hue that shows a brilliantly clear, almost orange tinged, copper color. The aroma is quite vinous and fruity smelling; bright sweet grapes, tropical fruit notes, and perhaps even a hint of citrus is backed by spicy, astringent oak, perhaps even a touch of grassy oak character, some savory pale malt notes (malted cracker).

This has a light sweetness to it which accentuates the fruit character; notes of Muscat, floral tropical fruit, Chardonnay raisins, guava, and perhaps some melon are balanced out by some spicy, woody, slightly astringent, tongue coating oak character. The body of this brew has some definite heft to it, but it is actually on the light side for a beer of this strength. This is nicely balanced between the fruit character, the oak, the light malt, and the light yeast character. The latter contributes a yeasty, not quite savory bite in the finish, esetery, somewhat phenolic, light notes of medicinal / plastic character, and fruit accentuating notes. Faint notes of cheese, and earthy character that is muted, but accentuating, spicy notes of pepper, perhaps a touch of bell pepper, spicy alcohol, buttery oak becomes more noticeable as the beer warms up. Perhaps a touch of tartness (from the barrel ageing maybe), accentuates the bright fruit character just enough. Rounded malt notes provide a touch of savory character.

This is one of those brews meant to be sipped, the more I sit with it the more it grows on me, and it wasn’t that bad to begin with (in fact it was quite good), thoroughtly satisfying in the end.
