berlinoise2go (626) - NORWAY - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle (375ml) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Huge, lively, offwhite head, great retention. Hazy apricot/amber colour. Complex, fruity aroma with brett, gooseberry, orange marmalade, white wine, vinegar. Medium body, soft carbonation. Sublimely balanced taste, sweet upfront, then gradually more bitter, with an acidic base throughout. Long fruity-bitter-vinegary aftertaste.

DYCSoccer17 (3354) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 25, 2012
I had this on tap several weeks ago at The Davis Beer Shoppe. I believe it was an 8 ounce sample. Just found the rating. The aroma is a bit sweet at first with some mild citrus notes. That aroma dissipates quickly and then it becomes quite musty. Somewhat oxidized. Moderately hazy copper-orange body with a strong, off-white head present. Starts spicy with some mild peppery notes. Becomes quite herbal in the middle. Finishes with mild bitterness. Not too much else happening with this beer. Perhaps there are some Juniper berries here?

Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus, Joes and Ansjelaah. Very hazy orange, small white head. Smell balanced sourness, some sweetness, rubber. Taste sourness, some candy sugar, rubber again, some wine indeed. Pretty good. Medium carbonation, medium body.

Palme (3546) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2012
0.375l botttle. This one pours a blurry light brown/orange body with a big and almost fluffy off-white head that sticks around for a while. The aroma is really nice; vinious and light wody-tart with Belgian yeast, candy, sweet bubble gum, green grapes, elder flowers and hints of gooseberries. Complex and Delicious. Oh yeah, itís alive alright, and definitely white wine barreled. It has a lively to average carbonation level and a nice light oily mouthfeel. Perfectly light-tart and bretty with notes green grapes, wood, sour gooseberries, white wine vinegar and hints of spicy rosemary and sage. Quite complex, refreshing and really tasty. I served this quite cold (something I almost never do) and that suited it perfectly! My oh my, I finished this way way to fast! 23.01.2012

Foffern (1294) - BodÝ, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2012
Bottle at home. Bottled 08.11.2010. Hazy, deep orange coloured with a frothy, big and off-white head. Classic flemish sour ale aroma with wood, oak, and bitter berries of rowanberry. Slightly perfumy. Hint of alcohol. The flavours are sweeter with some roasted malt in the end. A fruity taste and a dry mouthfeel like a white wine. Some leather. Slick and silky in the mouth and a little bit crispy on the tongue. Light bitterness. Overall a more easy-drinking and fresher compared with the classic flemish sour ale, and with less sourness. Nice one.

robinvboyer (3258) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2012
375cl bottle. hazy brown pour, light beige head. big aroma of yeast, tropical fruit, and caramel. regular mouth feel and carbonation. Flavor is where the white wine barrel really comes out. It added quite a bit of acidity, and some mineral woody flavors. finish was a medium bitterness, with some light woody, vanilla hints.

jgentgesdo (674) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Pours cloudy orange with a medium tan head that lasts forever and has rather clumpy but attractive legs. Nose is the sharp funkiness of hay, runny cheese, leather, penicillin. It is rather sweet in the flavor, has a lingering sweet aftertaste. Mouthfeel is chalky. I love it - when I drink it my hands try to do the movements of leatherworking.

375ml bottle, amber-orangeish color, with a bubbly white head, nice yeasty fruity, candied orange peel, peacy, wild funky bretty, wet oakiness nose, with some sweet toasted, caramel malt, light white wine tannin notes, and some faint horseblanket, dusty, chalky, cheesy, leathery accents in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a mild sweet toasted, biscuity, caramel malt, earthy wild bretty fruity yeast, musty, wet oak barrel character, with a kind of leathery, dusty, white wine tannin flavours, with a light hint of spiciness, leading towards a warming, bretty yeastiness, candied orange, peach fruitness, leathery, winey tannin oakiness, faint sweetness finish.
