ComradeK (922) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 27, 2013
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts quite well although does not leave much lacing. There is plenty of sour funk in the aroma, mixed with oaked chardonnay and lemon. It is quite sour up front, with lemon the predominant flavour. This softens and segues nicely into smooth, slightly oaky chardonnay in the mid-palate, with some fruity notes and more sourness in the finish. The white wine flavours mix very nicely with the sourness, making for an enjoyable wild ale, although perhaps not quite as good as the lychee version.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
Pale amber pour covered by an eternal white foam. Heady, vinous and wild ale with an almost gimmicky abuse on many concepts cherished by beer geeks, but still plenty of fun and not chaotic. The nose is explosive, throwing hordes of floral, juicy limey grape and leathery intricacies above subtle sulphurous whiffs bathing the otherwise fairly round offering with still a good bit of residual sugars for all its wild status. Perhaps more esters than I would like, banana amidst others, but otherwise displaying a sound yet not overwhelming brett character, timid, but surprising cereal undertones in that context and juicy, acidic winey notes. It makes for a sipper of a brew. Despite an ABV not beyond control, it feels strong and asks for a slow pace. Some good elements, but thatís many beverages in one here and for a simple mind like mind, itís probably a little too fusion to hit the sweetest spot.

This one has a strong sugar candy aroma. Itís appearance is sparking bronze. Flavor is lemon zest (bitter finish). It flows across the palate like carbonated water. Overall it is a little too sweet for my taste.

375ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Sparkling bronze with ample white head. Aroma is candy sugar. Flavor is also candy with some lemon zest. High carbonation. A bit too sweet for my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

coolpop (1367) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Draft. Poured pale amber with a meidum-sized off-white head. Aroma was moderately bretty, quite musty. Flavor was bretty, only mildly sour, lots of sweet caramel. Wood and white wine present. Moderately bitter. Very dry on the finish. Bit like a bretty IPA.

jerohen (1962) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2013
Bottled from Biernavigatie.nl. Very dark red colored, lasting thick off-white head. Strong lambic-like nose, very fruity, little bit of brett. Fruity sour flavor, white wine definitely apparant, some brett and yeast. Very dry finish, almost no sourness. Seems to lean a lot more on lambic than brett flavors compared to the lychee version i had before. The white wine shines through a bit too much, pushing away the other flavors. Still a very good beer, but this version may not be worth the price, while (at least for me) the lychee version definitely is.

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2013
375 ml. bottle split by 4 @ Kulminator in the new Mikkeller & Friends glasses. Pours a bright, slightly orange amber with a big creamy, slowly lacing white head. Nose makes me thing of noble rot bacteria, musty barrel, brett, slightly mouldy grapes, sweet spices, odd. Did they use a noble rot wine? Taste is mouldy sweetish white grapes, old barrel, noble rot bacteria, white grapes, tangy brett, lightly funky, fruity, malt sweetness. Slightly light & oily body. Not bad but not worth the price Ė feels a bit like a slightly lesser Funky (e) star.
