Bottle at ACBF 2011. Pours golden with nearly no head. Aroma is fruity with some wood. Very distinctive flavour due to the lactic acid. Although quite odd, definitely a very good brew.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
should have let it settle more. the beer was quite cloudy
dark tan w/ some bubbles
nose switches b/w tart/sweet belgian and sweet juice (apple?)
tastes totally different than it smells
med body and hardly fizzy
i’m assuming the odd flavour that dominates is the sauternes; oaky and dry
very interesting! not superb but fun to try. split a bottle with several people so i’d like to have this again. (all to myself)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home bought at Systembolaget. Hazy orange color with a small white head. Fruity nose with a sublime bretty and lactic note to it. Apricot, honey, bread and a earthy tone from the brett.
Flavour is dry and sour with apricots. Oaky sauterne like flavours dominated by honey and tropcal fruit and there is also a smal autolytic flavour of toasted bread. There is a slightly sweet aftertaste. Its a good beer with a nice twist from the sauterne barrel.
