pours a deep deep brown with good tan head that stays around - aroma yeasty sour citrus . taste much better than aroma - a touch of sweet qucikly changes to a citrusy slight sourness with caramel undertones offset very well by teh fizzy carbonation generating a pleasant mouthfeel . long finish slightly acidic but nice . pretty good beer would have again .

Keg at BrewDog Edinburgh. Deep reddish black, thin off-white head. Interesting and strange nose - overripe cherries, balsamic vinegar, hint of manure, tart raspberry, green apples. Nice soft sweetness up front, hint of caramel, raspberry, dry white wine acidity, grassy woody brett, soft tartness. Nice and complex.

1FastSTi (3341) - 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.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 20, 2011
Bottle, 375ml, courtesy of meilby. It pours an unclear, dark ruby to brown body and a dense, finger-thick off-white to beige head. Oaked, red wine-ish, brett-aroma with dried fruits, dark berry notes, some alcohol and a touch of white sugar. Quite complex. It has a good warmth in the mouth, it’s full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated. A touch of metal in the far end. The brett and barrels sure win the flavor combat, there’s not much left of the original beer, except for the alcohol. Even though it’s quite dry, there’s a good dash of residual sweetness to be found. Sort of peppery too in the very end. Well, this one’s a clash of worlds, but it’s also a damn fine one, in a way combining the red sour beers of Flandern with the sweet quadrupels the monks brew. Lovely, but demanding. 110420

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2011
Bottled. A hazy dark red beer with a lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, alcohol, brettanomyces, caramel, and a bit of wood. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, brettanomyces, wood, grapes, and caramel, leading to a tart finish. Thanks pinball for sharing.

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.
