ClubGonzo (3985) - 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. :-)

Pours a clear and brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is malt, brett, sweetness, dried fruit, raisin, redwine and wood. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is dry with sweetness. Overall a good and well balanced beer.

dEnk (3774) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2011
Bottle @ ACBF ’11. Aroma is brett with a faint touch of caramel and roasted malt. Flavour is light sweet malt, lavished with brett, yet in a very subtle and smooth way.

erickok (3484) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 24, 2011
Murky brown, tiny head. Light sour at first but disappearing. Next wood, caramel, leather and bread. Complex but taste disappoints a little though. Bit of smoke. Can’t be bothered by this. (At Borefts)

1FastSTi (3334) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle. The bottom of which pours to a disgustingly murky deep brown body. The regular pour looks like a nice quad. Funky brett and red wine infused quad. The taste is red wine and funky quad with lots of caramel and deep yeasts. Creamy velvety body with a very well hidden alcohol.
