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.

Thanks to Boutip for this. Pours a reddish brown with a frothy off white top. Aroma is tart cherry, oak and yeast. Taste is light tartness, sweetness from the brett. Oak dryness with the yeast and white wine characteristics. Really splendid beer.

Enjoyed on tap at Mikkeller & Friends in Copenhagen, DK. Appearance a moderately dark ruby amber with a thin white rim.  Aroma is very floral with nice peppery notes, light grape, overall very nice.  Taste is great, light sour notes, dry finish, kind of packs a punch, very good.

Cuivrée et trouble, on ne peut pas dire que la mousse est très vivante, comme le sous-entend le nom de la bière. Je fus surpris de constater que le nez était plutôt sucré avec ses arômes de raisins secs. Les levures sauvages émanent des souvenirs de ferme également. Acétique en bouche, mais pas trop, une bonne dose de sucres résiduels vient atténuer cette sensation. Avec son caractère fruité et son léger côté boisé, cette bière est sensationnelle, malgré son prix très élevé.

Borresteijn (6359) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2014
Sample at De Bierkoning, from a 37.5cl Bottle. Clear amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of lots of Brettanomyces funk, almost salty, some caramel or kandij, light fruity. Flavour is quite sweet at first, sweet white wine, light funky, hint of tartness, light salty, oak, decent bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Lots of Orval reminders here. Nice.

caaam (4) - - APR 16, 2014 does not count
Poured from a 375ml bottle into a wine glass. Unknown bottle date Nose: grapes, apple cider, slight cider vinegar, tons of funk; socks. Lots of cardboard in the nose Appearance: very hazy amber. Little clarity at all to this. Cream colored head bordering on brown that doesn't go away. Taste: dry white wine - grapes, apricots, spices, almost a cinnamon note. Little bit of almost sour brown sugar to it - not sweet but has the dark sugar note. Sour apple. Lingering funkiness in the finish. Lots of socks and Brett funk the whole time. Palate: pretty thin, very tight carbonation. Almost like a mineral water type carbonation. Not a ton of body. Overall: hard to say on this beer without a bottle date. Estimates put it around two years old at most, probably at least a year. Was hoping for more tart to this but presumably the Brett has gone wild here. Not bad though, just not what I had hoped for

Bottle to tulip Aroma of lemon, wine, and a touch of funk with a candyish aroma in the background. It’s an almost clear reddish amber with a mottled tan and white frothy head with lots of lacing. Taste is a Bretty sourness with an apple sauce and grape kind of sweetness along with a load of funk.

sulawang (1029) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
Visual: Pours cloudy maple syrup brown with a smallish ultra-creamy lasting head, tons of very sticky lacing, several very active streams. Nose: woody sour apple cider with substantial funk (7/10-pungency) Attack: light-pukey up front Mid-palate: controlled (5/10)-sweetness, mild sourness/tang, creamy-fizzy mouthfeel, (MAIN) intense woodiness, very yeasty, apple-malt, light-moderate funk/mild puke Finish: residual wet-wood, soft sweet-bitter hops, woody exhale-hoppy finish. Summary: Most woody, but actually quite drinkable after you get accustomed to it. I like the gray version better.

I’m on the fence I this one because the first one. I ever had blew me away but the second time not as impressive. Liked it both times but I guess I was so disappointed from the first attempt that it lowered my rating some. Maybe the first time I may have had a few other bottles to myself and it inflated the experience, that happens to me a lot.

375ml bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy copper with an off-white head. Aroma of funk/tartness, some light wine, caramel malts, and some fruits/spices. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A Pretty good beer.
