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.

degbert (1403) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark creamy orange with an amazingly lush and fine-grained head. Nose is incredible -- sweetness, funk, a definite citrus touch, wild mustard, lavender, and a touch of savory. Clean and clear on the tongue, with malt and hops creating a riot of tastes -- mustard again, mushroomy earth, lemon, herbs. Clean finish. Amazingly complex beer.

Cavie (4043) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2011
Bottle Courtesy bu11zeye. Clear light orange color with a soft white head. Aroma is soft tartness with light cherry 7-up. Flavor is dry, tart and sour, with some odd finishes.

Cybercat (4087) - Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2011
Pours a pretty, slightly dark, slightly hazy golden amber with a VERY thick buttery off-white head. The bottle I got fizzed like nobody’s business, so have a towel handy! Aroma is average strength, fruity, yeasty and somewhat sweet with a malty hint. Flavor is mainly fruity, sweet but not too sweet, and has malt and yeast hints plus just a bit of butterscotch. Texture is fairly fizzy, leaving a rather persistent tingle on the tongue and lips.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2011
Bottle. Dark dirty amber. Big porous noisy head. Aroma of wine and Belgian dust. Refreshing dark woody flavour with a sour fruit finish. Nice look and nice palate give a woody beer-wine cross a bit of a higher rating.

alobar (3128) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2011
Pours a dark orange color with a heavy citrus aroma with caramel and bread. Flavor is more hoppy than expected with citrus sweetness. Just a hint of sour at the back end. Decent beer, but kind of all over the place.

daje (2757) - NORWAY - APR 7, 2011
Bottle at Schouskjelleren shared with esp0r. Hazy amber red, big white head. Tropical aroma with spices and grain, bitter fruity taste with yeast and hops, not as sour as I first expected. Good carbonation and medium body

hopscotch (10142) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2011
Bottle… Space Coast Craft Beer Festival 2011 … Hazy dirty-orange ale with a large, fluffy, white head. Fantastic retention. The super funky nose is also fruity and malty - sour cherries, caramel and toffee. Medium to full-bodied with a dry mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. There is a bounty of caramel and toffee flavor without being overly sweet or boozy. Finishes crisp and bittersweet. The brettanomyces did a great job of funking this up and drying it out. Bottle courtesy of Plovmand!

kappldav123 (5510) - GERMANY - APR 5, 2011
From bottle at ACBF 2011. Looks good in the glass, brownish, small head. Starts sourish and dry, well balanced, almost a bit salty. Dry finish, a bit fruity like lemon, well balanced. Really nice!
