English: Based on a very classically brewed Belgian style tripel with just the one twist that it was fermented with a saison yeast blend. After primary and secondary fermentation on tank for 3 months, the beer was racked into French Sauternes oak barrels and inoculated with brettanomyces and lactobaccillus. After 8 months in the barrel, the beer shows a very charming combination of spicy aromas, earthy notes and the complex tartness added by the wild yeast and bacteria. The body is dry with intense spicy and fruity flavours with clear hints of vanilla and oak.
Ingredients: Barley malt, wheat malt and hops.

larsga (6930) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2011
Medium offwhite head. Body was clear until I poured sediment in. Muddy opaque amber body with carbonation. Papery toffee and marzipan aroma with grape and alcohol notes. Bitter-sweet, and acidic, grapes and herbs taste with vinegary notes. Mid-bodied. Acidic mouthfeel. Dry-sweet grapes and flowers aftertaste with herbal papery notes. Nice, but not really successful. (0.25l bottle, Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

mumares (98) - BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2011
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.

Blairgus (3571) - California, USA - MAR 8, 2011
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)

Farmhouse aroma. Clear-orange with hint of bubles for head. Sweet with a defined brett character; smooth with nice wood tones...excellent, a great interesting beer.
