ClubGonzo (3995) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours a murky deep brown body with a medium light beige frothy head. Nose is complex and quite nice: tart, berry-like brett tones, lemon, wood, red wine, vanilla, white pepper, grapes and dark malts. Taste is herbal sugary tones, sweet malts, red wine and hints of vanilla. Mildly bubbling carbonation, undoubtly subdued from the barrel aging. The whole thing doesn’t seem to agree with me: where is this thing going? What does it want from me? It’s not quite sour, nor too sweet, yet it seems to be wanting to go in each of those directions. The brett character somehow manages to blend in with the red wine, but the barrel character is overshadowed by the sweet malty tones from the Belgian strong ale. All in all, this is too much of a wild fandango in my mouth and I really feel a bit more structure would be good. Very interesting though, and highly original: this is a beer you don’t taste too often - I don’t care how much of a blase ticker you are. :-)

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2012
375ml bottle, from Erzbierschof. Pours a dark reddish-brown with a beige head. Smells of Brett, balsamic vinegar, some feet, and a hint of wood beneath. Tastes intriguing and exquisite; cherries, vanilla, caramel, cream. A heavy sweetness, part caramel and part fruit, with a creamy soft texture, with just a hint of tartness to make it real. This is wonderful!

Plovmand (6460) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle shared by faroeviking. Pours reddish brown with a medium tan head. The aroma is fart, rotten vegetables (udkogt blomkål) and brett. What? Some sugary and sweet malty notes. Really stinks! The flavour is very vinous with notes of dark fruit and molasses but then kicks the rotten vegetables. For fucks sake. What happend here! Everything was insane and creepy here but he palate was great. Overall this was a disaster....
