sebletitje (8124) - 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.

Plovmand (7185) - 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....

MesandSim (7118) - 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.

gunnar (6920) - Sandnes, NORWAY - 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.

From bottle at ACBF 2011. Dark brown in the glass, small head. Starts fruity malty, also quite sourish. Wonderful fruity-berry notes. Well balanced finish with sourish notes of lemon, also warming finish. I liked it!

skortila (4931) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2011
@ ACBF 2011. The aroma has cherries, other red fruits, tart yeast. Clear, dark red-brown coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is sour and tart, has some fruity sweetness to it, raisins, cherries. For the style quite on the thin side. Nice one.

ClubGonzo (4903) - 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. :-)
