English: It’s Alive!!! Indeed it is. This Belgian Ale has been aged on White Wine barrels to give it that touch of alcohol, while the Brettanomyces give the tartness. Complex but well balanced beer.

JaBier (7027) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective barrel-aged beer tasting on 8/11/12. Clear copper pour with a medium off-white head. Funky brett and sour nose with some malt and light fruit. Bretty and funky flavor with a bit of malt sweetness before a semi-dry finish.

abistany (6) - - AUG 19, 2012 does not count
Tastes appley, kind of putrid and almost like vomit but enjoyable. Interesting complex taste. Best fresh, loses flavor and tang. Cool bright orangey/yellow color.

mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Pours an odd murky brownish red with a huge fluffy beige head. Aroma is nice, smells tart, fruity, some cherries, nice funk to it. Taste isn’t as good as the aroma led me to believe, some tart cherry notes, a bit of that horse blanket funk, note as sour as I was hoping just some tart notes, maybe some age will let the brett develop, dry finish, with some oaky notes and yes, a hint of wine. Not too bad but not worth 12 bucks

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Pour a cloudy orange with an off-white head. Subtle tartness of lemon on the nose. Some white wine, a bit of Bretty funk, oak, and light spice notes. Light straw, some grass, and a definite barnyard as it warms. Light rubber band in there, too. The flavor is not bad. White wine, grass, Brett/barnyard funk, and spices. Some lactic tartness, a definite rubber band note, and a fairly heavy dose of tannins on the finish, making it very dry.

Dogbrick (11602) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective barrel-aged beer tasting on 08/11/2012. Orange-amber pour with a medium white head that recedes slowly to a film. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruits and malt. Medium body with a vinous character and notes of brett, citrus, yeast and malt. The finish is fruity with a woody yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Mikkylar (94) - Placentia, California, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours a funky brownish orange with frothy off-white head. Nice aroma of candied sugar, citrus fruit, slight funk. Complex flavors. Not super sour. Mikkeller all the way. More time in the bottle may bring out more flavor.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2012
12.7 oz bottle. ABV was listed as 8.5%, and the label had a picture of a glass with an arm sticking out of it. Shared with abistany. Hazy muddled red color. Foamy big khaki / light brown head. Good tart light sour taste. Very smooth carbonation and texture, very dry finish. Nice aroma of white wine and wood, little belgian funk. Pleasant, complex brew to sip on. Really good once you let it sit and warm up a bit.

Defreni (3004) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2012
Flaske: En svag afmatning af sin originale øl. Orange øl med fint skumhoved. Duften er let brettet med en smule hvidvin af ubestemmelig oprindelse i duften. Smagen er forholdsvis simpel uden det helt store. Lettere skuffende.

deyholla (10209) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber orange with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma hasa nice white wine note that lends a bit of tartness with sweet grains and brett underlying. Flavor starts with light grain and Brett with a nice white wine barrel note in the finish.
