Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Deep light muddy brown with a small, staying, frothy, beige head. Nice lacings. Aroma is light tart, nuts, plums, grapes, vinious, red wine, some leathery notes. Red apple zest. Medium carbonation, lovely dry and creamy palate. Flavour has lots of definite red wine, sweet plums and raisins, vinious, mild tartness and with a good bretty dry character to the finish. Really a very lovely drink.

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.

Thanks to Bill for sharing. Dark brown pour whispy small tan head avg lacing. Lots of dry wood notes a good amount of funky leather some red wine under that some sweet caramel malts. Avg palate. First taste an odd mix of sweet caramel and a super dry finish aftertaste of dry oak. Some light leather. Really smooth and well blended the alcohol is basically invisible. Good stuff.

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!

Medium body, sweet woody fruitiness, minerals, overripe swwet fruits "noble rot", some Sherry. No real bitterness but a slight Bretty tartness. Very sophisticated, very pleasant. 130711

gEUS (1267) - Linden, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2011
A very complex beer - pours deep amber beer, light beige sticky head. Nose has hints of peach, raisins, turf - reveals a nice acidity that comes back immediately in the mouth - yet there is a nice balance with the sweetness and the roundness of the beer. Bitterness only kicks in the aftertaste. Makes me think of the Rodenbach Grand Cru with more depth and body. Nice!

Draft at BBF 2011, courtesy of Mikkel’s crew, thanks! Dark brown color, brown head. Aroma of must, dust, prunes, dates. Taste is funky cocoa and moldy coffee grounds. Interesting.

Bottle at Borefts 2011. Roasted aroma, faint citric hint. Muddy dark brown colour. Very small tan head. The flavour is nicely citric, but also very mellow. Good fruit notes, citric berries. Well-balanced.
