Scopey (5544) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle at home. It pours murky deep brown with a medium beige head. The nose is musty, earth, mouldy wood, ripe cheese, sulphur, HP sauce, vinous and tangy green apple. The taste is earth, brett, oak, tangy fruit, vinous, berry, spice, alcohol warmth, brown sugar, raisin and date with a very dry, earthy finish. Full body, moderate carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Smells pretty nasty...tastes better though. Interesting for sure, but not something I would return to.

Yorker (993) - Herning, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2013
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is red wine, brett, berries, oak, and vanilla. Flavour is red wine, berries, and brett – with a dry and tart finish.

mcberko (5369) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
375mL bottle, pours a murky dark amber brown with a medium tan head. Aroma brings out red wine barrels, noticeable brett, some dark fruits and a little candied sugar. Flavour brings out brett and red wine barrels upfront, caramel malts, and dark fruits. The brett gives it quite a wild character that surprisingly works well with the vinous and typically quad notes. Great stuff.

delnoche (440) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - APR 24, 2013
12.7fl oz bottle poured into a Westmalle Trappist glass. Dark ruby/brown with fizzy tan head. Aroma is barnyard and slight candy sugar but later became red wine. Flavor is red wine, candy, copper. Rather sour due to the Brett. Medium carbonation, full body. Sour finish with a slight alcohol burn. Interesting beer, though not something I’d pick up again.

A very disappointing beer. A fruity cherry aroma and flavor. Tangy notes and a tart aftertaste. Redish brown color with a white head.

uckelman (196) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2013
Pours reddish brown, cloudy. Little head, small bubbles. Prominent sour aroma, reminds me of cherries. Medium body, not as heavy as I expected. Long aftertaste, hints of caramel and baked apples.

sarauckelman (132) - Heidelberg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2013
Sharp, fruity aroma, as of cranberries, and bit of old cheese. Color is chuck, dark chocolate; opaque. Warm in the mouth; disappears quickly. Sour and not too thick.
