Benzai (9320) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2011
Dark brown color, beige head. Don’t like the smell at all, too sour. Very nice body. Taste has a nice balanced sourness, but just not my taste.

Scopey (7860) - 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.

mcberko (7776) - 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.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2011
A Mes rate. Keg at the Cask.A Mikkeller soured beer rarely (never) let’s me down. This is no different. Not the best smelling beer I have had from Mikkeller but as soon as this magic elixir hits my tongue, all that is forgotten. Big fruity barrelly sourness abounds and dizzys the brain for a few seconds after each sip. So bright and exciting for a beer with this reasonably high an abv. Funky yet thoroughly approachable. Superb finish with considerable length. Not something I should probably start the day with but when the boss demands you have a free half... Well, why the funk not? Excellent stuff.

sebletitje (7023) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2011
Bouteille @ ACBF 2011. Couleur brune avec mousse beige. Arôme de brett qui est agréablement suivit de sucre candi et brun. En bouche, c’est un peu une pagaille gustative alors que l’on s’attend à une quad on a en effet les impressions d’aigreur donné par le brett. Cela rajoute à la bière une dimension unique et fort appréciable. Cette aigreur reste légère et se mélange bien avec ce côté malt carapils qui altère amertume et aigreur tout en fondant sur cette couche de sucre brun. Le tout avec la complexité d’une quad venant des meilleures abbayes belges.

olio (6771) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2011
Draught @ Craft Bere Co., London.
Rated on 20110720.
Dark red colour with very small head. Aroma is sour with berries, some yeast and spices also. Flavour is sour berries, spices, earth and malts. Sour palate and somewhat exciting, but the alcohol comes through a bit too much.
