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.

Botella de 37.5 cl en llamas. Agosto de 2013. Muy buena con cuerpo medio - fuerte presenta sabores iniciales dulces seguidos de un toque de licor de la madera empapada de vino tinto finalizando con un ligero amargor unido a ligero ácido de los brettanomyces. Color negro con espuma algo oscura poco persistente. Muy buena. Para repetir

maneliquor (2782) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle shared in London for my farewell drinks. Picked this one up at Kris Wines I think. Pours clearish mahogany with a small beige head. Nose is plenty of ripe berries with some tartiness as you’d expect, slightly acidic, grapefruit, zesty and milk chocolate. Lots going on but balanced decently. Taste is like a sour Pinot Noir. Think black cherries, tarty blueberry, dusty chocolate, raisins and some bretty tang. A nice red wine finish with some coconut and spice in there. A lot happening but works quite well. Solid drop
