BlazerT (24) - POLAND - APR 7, 2014
Bottle. Teku glass. Amber gold, hazy, two finger head, medium lasting, low lacing. The aroma is nice brett, earthy, wood, bu also fresh, some basement aromas, fruity and citrus, touch of booze. The taste is very refreshing and dry, not so sour. The beer is definitely dry, in the middle grand marnier sensations, which make it more smooth and a little bit sweet. Body is medium, creamy, with lively carbonation and dry finish. In overall very refreshing beer, which makes you alive.

gyllenbock (4083) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle bought in Copenhagen in May 2013. Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma and taste of orange, light malt and some yeast. The finish was dry. Drinkable but nothing special.

@Gyllenbock: ingen jättestor varken smak eller doft. Kanske en aning apelsin bak i munnen. Annars inget. Tyvärr. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

(bottle - 375 ml) Clear gold pour with a very little head. Slightly sweet aroma with some dry tartness under it. Flavor is pretty much standard dry sour ale. Got a tiny bit of the Grand Marnier but not a whole lot. Couldíve used more.

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Amber pour with a tan head. Some leathery Brett funk, wet hay, wood, toothpick, warm booze. Very little GM detectable but itís obvious that it was barrel aged.

Scopey (5511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle at home. It pours clear amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is wood, earth, brett, stewed orange, mango, funk, mustiniess, white grape and a touch of sweetness,. The taste is funky, wood, brett, light bitterness, earth, spice, dough, citrus peel and just a touch of alcohol with a very dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good balance. Rather nice.

bluejacket74 (1204) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2013
12.7 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy orange amber color with an inch and a half off-white head that sticks around for a long time. Thereís also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice but light, it smells like oranges/orange peel, vanilla, oak and some pears. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but thereís also the addition of some bready malt and some earthiness. Thereís more bitterness to this brew than I expected. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit creamy with a good amount of carbonation. I think this is a decent brew, but I donít think itís worth the $16.99 price tag at all. Still, it was nice to try once.

murky amber, oily white top, thin white ring. Moldy nose, lightly cheesy, wheaty citric hints but moderately soft. Flavor thin, bitter grass and lemon.
