KnutAlbert (6713) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2009
Tasted in two versions in Rome. Strong sour aroma from a guzzling bottle. Red, hazy beer. Surprisingly harmonious. A fair amount of suger, reminding me of a faro. Redcurrants, candy sugar, sour finish. Aged 2 years: Much more mellow and balanced, the sugar is dissolved. Quite another beer, and the rating is higher.

JPDIPSO (5670) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Big pop of the cap/cork. Bit of a gusher, with a quick, but not big escape of beer/bubbles. Hazed ruddy brew with a quickly diminished head that leaves just a few bubbles on the rim and adrift in the middle of the brew. Tropical fruit, caramel, and light barnyard scents. Some hints of alcohol and stronger spirits in the background. Light cheery wood and creamy caramel in the start. Middle is full of acidic citrus peel and floor cleaner. Oak and additional acidic components gather in the finish and linger. Im starting to tire of brett. Wild Devil the other day overdosed me and now Im just tired of it. This is not the subtle Orval brett, this is here I am lick me and love me, I dont care what you think. Interesting, but not fully engaging.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of musty yeast, vaguely barnyardy notes, dried fruits, citrus, apricot. Flavor shows nice levels of acidity with increasing pineapple and citrus character, some playful hoppy bitterness, butterfinger. Mildly sour, mildly dry. Tasty.

LilBeerDoctor (3772) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2009
Bottle thanks to Beerlando. Pours a cloudy light brown with a thick white head. Aroma is lightly sour with some sweet wine notes and earthiness. Flavor has some sour cherry notes, light oak barrel, and a nice sour and tart background. Not acidic at all--very nice palate. Quite enjoyable! 8/4/8/4/15 (3.9/5)

hopscotch (10644) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2009
Bottle... mgumby10s & hopscotchs Watching the Final Four from Face Down on the Floor Throwdown!... Murky orange ale with a huge, creamy, off-white head. Permanent retention. The fruity, earthy, lactic aroma provides notes of wood, citrus and funk. Medium to full-bodied with prickly carbonation. Tart, citric, lightly woodsy flavor. Lengthy, sweet-tart finish that bitters up and dries out at the very end.

TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - APR 9, 2009
Bottle. Poured a medium cloudy blond. Nose had some sour notes, sweetness, and the barrel aging was apparent. Flavor was similar, was very mildly sour, with lots of malt flavor. Nicely carbonated with a sweet and spicy finish. Nice interesting beer.
