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.

Mortlach (1454) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 16, 2012
05/01/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (375ml bottle). Bevuta al Mikkeller Beer Festival. Ambrata chiara, intensa e brillante, con schiuma bianco sporca dai riflessi giallognoli, non molto persistente. Al naso è magnifica, sembra un vino bianco, acidula, delicata, leggermente fruttata. In bocca parte come un diesel, risultando un po’ debole di corpo, corta, leggermente acquosa, ma mantiene comunque una certa finezza e migliora tantissimo sorso dopo sorso. Corpo medio-basso, carbonazione soft. Sorprendente.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2012
37,5 cl Bottle@ home. Dark amber to light brown coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a medium but diminishing off white head. Sour and nicely fruity infused aroma. Full palate. Finish is sour sweet and fruity balanced with some spicy slight alcoholic hints. Not bad.

PhillyCraft (4528) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2012
On Tap last year, I have tried this out of the bottle and now on tap, and I still get the same weak tasting notes from it. Dark, boring amber pour, minimal head, not much lacing, aromas of coffee, oak, lavender, taste is filled with weird nutty flavors, wood, stale or non-existant brett. Very Flat. This is def not mikkellers best showing and I found myself not being able to finish a 12 oz glass.

Pours a hazy and copper beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, fruit, brett, white wine and wood. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is dry with sweetness. Overall a really good beer.

teorn88 (4686) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2012
On tap. Pours a deep orange golden color with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is malty with defined notes of red wine. Nothing really complex nor sour. Taste is similar: malty, boozy, winey. Not really sour. It just has some funkyness typical of white wines. Short sweetish finish. Mouthfell is medium to full with good carbonation. Overall, not really a sour ale in the literal sense. But it definitely reminds of.wine, mostly white wine.
