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. Cloudy golden amber color, fluffy white head. Aroma of vinous vanilla, stone fruit. Taste is smooth, fruity, softly sour peaches and pears. Tasty.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Bottle shared thanks to thebsmitty! Pours a medium golden brown with dissipating off-white head. Aroma is oak barrel sweetness, musky grapes, hint of bret. Taste follows, yeast and sweet musty grapes with a hint of booze. Smoother than the other I tried, tannic awesomeness.

Bottle. Pours heavy white head with medium to darker amber color. Smell is bret brux, a bit floral, light barnyard, white wine, and tropical fruit. Taste is yeast, white grapes, light hay, oak, lemon soap, oak, and a lil warmth. Really good stuff.

hopdog (9410) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Poured an amberish color with an off white head. Funky, vinous/grapes, woody, and citrus. Had this after the Lychee version and the Lychee was definitely a lot more sweeter than this one.

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - NOV 4, 2013
Funky woody, boozy, cheesy aroma. Coppar with a small head. There is a slight vinegar hint with some bitter lemons, surprisingly estery with a oaky funky almost wet finish. Fun brew but goes a bit over the top

mikeyo1 (324) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2013
Sample at smöf 2013. 2007 edition. Hazy golden. Aroma of goose berries, toast, easterly red fruit, hay and yeast. Medium body. Taste is sweet with a sour note but less than expected. Fruits bread, wheat and a bit of bitter vinegar that lasts quite long in the taste. This one probably peaked a year or two ago?

(2007) Amber dredge, white lid. Aroma of gooseberry and green banana. Wow, this one has peaked, taste is almost nonexistent. Not unpleasant in any way, just very subdued. Very low carbonation, dry mouthfeel. I suspect this one should be enjoyed quite a bit younger.

Dr_MedievAle (199) - Alabama, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Aroma: Sharp and nutty parmesan cheese, tart cherries. Appearance: Murky rust color body; off-white and foamy head. Very sticky lacing. Taste: Sour citrus notes mellow out to a slight sweetness and herbal bitterness. Sourness comes back in an aftertaste that lingers pleasantly, but not for too long. Palate: thin and smooth. finishes like a nice cold glass of iced tea. I’ve been trying and trying to get into sour beers, and I think this might be the first one I’ve had that gives me faith in the style. I might just like sour beers after all...
