Danish: En vild belgisk ale brygget på: vand, malt (pale og cara), lys kandis, humle (hallertau og styrian golding), gær og brettanomyces. Lagret 7 måneder på hvidvinsfade.

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.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours light brown with a white head. Aroma of brettanomyces, fruit and hints of wine. Mildly sour and lightly bitter, quite refreshing.

Cloudy copper color with orange highlights and a medium white head. Very nice aroma of brettanomyces, wood and spices. Solid flavor of spices, yeast, brettanomyces and wood. The body is medium with a creamy, slightly oily texture and moderate carbonation. This is very good, the wood might be just a bit too much for my taste, but it’s better integrated than some other barrel aged beers, nicely done!

gramity (1518) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2011
750 ml bottle. Hazy amber colour, thick and creamy off-white head. The aroma is sweetish, with a variety of fruit elements, bretta, and floral hops. Dryish malty, fruity and spicy flavour. Aromatic and bitter finish. The carbonation is a little bland, at least in this bottle. Very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

suprchunk (2454) - 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 (3172) - 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 (3222) - 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 (4492) - 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.

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.

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.
