jerohen (2169) - Bussum, - JUN 3, 2012
Bottled from Biernavigatie.nl. Dark amber colored, small disappearing white head. Very unusual sour nose, fruity, brett. Sour flavor, brett again, fruity notes, very low carbonation. Extremely short finish. Very unbalanced brew, actually tastes as if something went wrong during the brewing process.

If Mikkeller has an underrated beer this would be it. This beer is the perfect execution of Belgian ale with Brett. The caramel/candy flavor balances perfectly against the peach/mango hop flavours, with the Brett slicing right through. A go-to beer for me, and by FAR the most fairly-priced Mikkeller beer relative to quality. I hope it stays that way!

alteregoo (925) - POLAND - JUN 23, 2016
Piana spora, mydlana, postrzępiona, otwieraniu towarzyszył gushing. Barwa bursztynowa, lekko opalizująca, z drobnymi pęcherzykami gazu. Aromat intensywny i przyjemny, są tu zarówno nuty nowofalowego chmielu, dzikich drożdży jak i słodowej podstawy. W smaku wyraziste, delikatna słodycz owoców tropikalnych, troszkę karmelu, rodzynek, żywicy, cytrusów, kandyzowanych owoców... W tle delikatne nuty funky i siana, średnia goryczka, grejpfrutowo pikantna. Wysycenie średnie, drobne, piwo nieźle pijalne z delikatnie rozgrzewającym alkoholem.
Ciekawy, udany trunek, ale na pewno nie jest to BSA, jak stara się nas przekonać ratebeer. Dla mnie to takie Funky Red Ale (z dodatkiem brettów).

Franckg (1180) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 22, 2016
Bouteille avec un BB du 28/10/2021. Robe ambrée plutôt claire avec un beau col de mousse blanchâtre onctueux et persistant. Arômes de levures sauvages, léger funk, zeste d’orange poivré, malt caramelisé, sucre brun, abricot. En bouche, bretts présentant des saveurs florales et de jus d’abricot, malt caramelisé avec un fini boisé et sec. Quelques notes poivrées, zeste d’orange, houblons herbacés, légère résine de pin et autres levures belges. Texture huileuse et sèche, corps moyen. Très bien.

Aroma is caramel/caramel malts, sugar/candy and Brett. The flavor is fruit/tropical fruit, sugar/candy, malts, light hops and a mix of tart, slight sweetness and a mild bitterness in the finish.
