suprchunk (2233) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Reddish orange pour. Big off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing as it slowly dies down. A slightly soured orange and cherry aroma. Some blackberries. Funk, but slight. Very soft sweet and fruity flavor. A slight tannin presence. Thin, but sweet and refreshing. Not too bad, but I don’t think I would call it a sour. More of a blonde beer with some color and a slight Brett presence.

jesperhammer (2888) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2011
15-DEC-2011, bottle @home, from "Ølbutikken". A gusher. Pours on the kitchen table and in the sink. Huge off-white head on slightly hazy orange body. Nose is apples, apricot, yeast, grape fruit, and funky brett. Taste equally complex and even more bretty. Vinouos and tart with some sweetness, A little thin bodied. Really delicious.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Pours a hazy golden amber color. Aromas of wood, grass, yeast, some fruit and spice. Taste is yeasty, sour and medicinal, can really taste the funk in this one.

reebtogi (4180) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2011
330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a bubbly white head that settles quickly leaving little lacing on the glass. Aroma is quite fruity with yeast and some hops. Taste is light sour fruitiness with some yeast and a light malty sweetness and mild hop bitterness. This is a decent brew, but certainly not among the best Mikkeller has to offer.

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 28, 2011
On tap at Biero. Great beer, cidery aroma, but sweet in the mouth. Aroma of apples, dough, and caramel. Taste is sweet, with only a hint of sourness, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Orange, with a creamy head.

lachrymalisis (387) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2011
not quite sour, but there’s a bit hiding underneath. there is a specifically vaginal perfume. Really noticeable, and actually very pleasing for being the result of yeast production...anyway, there’s a strawberry-like aroma happening in this beer that is really pleasing. pretty serious hop bitterness on the whole tongue, not just the sides. really nice fruit complexity happening in this- long live the wild yeasts!

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2011
375ml bottle from IPB.
Appearance : Clear amber with big foamy white head. Lots of lacing.
Aroma : Big brett presence with lots of wood. Some tannins with light fruity notes.
Palate : Carbonation quite lively.
Taste : Big brett with lots of wood. Some alcohol with some spices. Finish big brett with lots of wood. Rather dry.
Overall : At first the brett felt a bit too intense and a bit too artificial. Got a bit more balanced with time. Nice wood. A little bit too much alcohol. Quite good but I’m not such a big fan of those brett bombs.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Bottle. Poured clear dark orange/brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy fruit, sour and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met.

Draft from Backcountry pizza. Pours brown with a nice white head. Definite fruitiness on the nose. Nice Belgian yeast notes with a touch of sourness on the tongue. Quite lively and lovely.

maledictum (613) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - OCT 18, 2011
A clear red/brown colored beer, with a white head. The aroma of some sour dough with fruits. The taste of fruits like apricot with some vanilla. There is a nice bitter. The aftertaste is dry, sweet with some bitter and winery.
