gunnar (4875) - Sandnes, - AUG 7, 2012
Bottle from Ølkonsortiet, Ålborg. Pours murky ruby with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma is complex, with some brett and oak in the front seat, red ripe fruits and candij sugar.Taste is smooth, light warming mouthfeel, without beeing annoyingly alcohol based,more as a result of the brett and redwine marriage. Slightly spiced end.

Theydon_Bois (7005) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle shared at Josh’s Farewell Fling, thanks to the Flamin’ hoon himself, 20/02/14. Hazed dark amber with moderate beige spotting/edgework. Nose is dark fruits, light spice, red wine woody tannin twang. Taste comprises tarte red grapes, light booze, caramel, pinch of spice, tinged with woody red wine notes. Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi sry close. Solid stuff, plenty of depth.

maneliquor (2788) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle shared in London for my farewell drinks. Picked this one up at Kris Wines I think. Pours clearish mahogany with a small beige head. Nose is plenty of ripe berries with some tartiness as you’d expect, slightly acidic, grapefruit, zesty and milk chocolate. Lots going on but balanced decently. Taste is like a sour Pinot Noir. Think black cherries, tarty blueberry, dusty chocolate, raisins and some bretty tang. A nice red wine finish with some coconut and spice in there. A lot happening but works quite well. Solid drop

Leighton (9883) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle shared in London for Josh’s farewell tasting. Thanks to Josh himself for this one. Pours hazy brown with a creamy beige head. Lots of lightly tart fruits in the nose, berries, wood. Medium sweet flavor with a bit of woody alcohol, bread, mildly tart fruits, ripe citrus, faint toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with lingering tart fruits, mild acidity, slight caramel. Nice.

Temptation (209) - - JAN 29, 2014
I like beer, not wine nor cider. When I buy a beer, I expect a beer, not wine nor cider. This stuff is a good example of how to spoil a beer: from the excellent Monk’s Elixir to this extravaganza. An acid quadruple??? My God, What’s this? A quadruple that tastes to red wine? Is there a red wine that tastes like a quadruple? Didn’t like at all.

angel77 (536) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 17, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl en llamas. Agosto de 2013. Muy buena con cuerpo medio - fuerte presenta sabores iniciales dulces seguidos de un toque de licor de la madera empapada de vino tinto finalizando con un ligero amargor unido a ligero ácido de los brettanomyces. Color negro con espuma algo oscura poco persistente. Muy buena. Para repetir
