3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky brown color, small brown head. Aroma has plenty of sourness, cherries, leather, alcohol, oak, red-wine, some feisty bitterness. Very much like a sour-ale. Taste is less punchy with a nice balance between sweetness and sourness. Oak and sugary flavours dominate, along with berries.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Pours deep red brown with a fine, staying, creamy, beige head. Lovely laces. Aroma has clear red wine, molasses, roasted malts and dried fruit. Medium carbonation, fat and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is mild oaky tart, lots of plums, figs and grapes. Clear red wine notes. Good dryness in the finish. Delicious, but the brett version was better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours deep mahogany brown with a red hue and a small brown head. Aroma is full of brett and red wine barrel, oak sweetness, cherries, some leather. Taste is rather sour, sweet cherries, brett, red wine, some berries, oak qualities, peppery notes, some sign of the alcohol. Lay this one down for 3 years and it will be a RR Consecration!
