Danish: En sur Belgisk Brune øltype på 6,5% alk. Basis øllen var en Belgisk Brune brygget i september 2008 af Master Brewer Class 08/09 fra den Skandinaviske Bryggerhøjskole. Den færdige øl har lagret på Spanske Tempranillo fade med flere typer af Brettanomyces og Lactobacillus. Resultatet er en balanceret sur og ekstremt kompleks, rund vinøs øl, med duft af eg og hestedækken, suppleret i smagen af malt - og karamelnoter, der afsluttes af en ren, sprød og frugtig eftersmag.

English: a sour Belgian style brown ale. The base beer was a Belgian Brune, brewed in September 2008 by the Master Brewer Class of 2008/09 at the Scandinavian School of Brewing. The finished beer was then allowed to age for 10 months in a Spanish Tempranillo barrel with multiple strains of Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus, resulting in a pleasantly sour, extremely complex, smooth beer with significant oaky, winey and barnyard flavours. Malt and caramel notes on the palate and a clean, crisp and fruity finish.

Bottle @ Bruce’s. Massive thanks to Paul for scoring this Scandinavian ghost! The pour’s a soupy reddish color with no head. I got the dregs of the bottle. Earlier pour’s were much clearer. The nose is red berry, grape. A bit of ketchup, balsamic vinegar. Lightly salty acidic aromas. The taste is more of the same. Soft balsamic vinegar, mild funk. Plenty of rustic umami flavors. Plenty of mineral, slightly metallic. Slightly coarse body, somewhat soupy (again, I was drinking the dregs). Overall, pretty tasty.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s, London - big thanks to Paul. Pours hazy, red-brown with a moderate, white cream head. Ripe tangy berries in the nose, some darkened sugars. Light to medium sweet flavor, some tangy, semi-dark malts, ripe berries, bit of wet wood. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Further tangy berries in the nose, moderate sweetness, more wet wood. Pretty nice. Not overly tangy. Nice balance.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark brown/ruby red color with a beige head. Aroma is of dark fruits, caramel, tartness, barnyard, oak, red grapes and brown sugar. Flavor is lightly sour, but the sourness quickly fades and turns into dark fruits, caramel, brown sugar, red grapes, vinous notes and a lot of oak on the back end. The body is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Overall a pretty taste Flemish style Sour Ale.

chibuck (3510) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2011
bottle... medium copper that is bright, a bit of orange amber, a light tan head, good cap and lace... smells incredible but there is so much going on its tough to describe it all, oak, brett,, a sweet backbone that’s creamy and a bit of red wine ... the taste is ligher, thin and muddled but still good, just doesn’t bring the awesome you expected after the nose, finish is a dead... solid but don’t give anything big up for it

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2011
Dark brown color; big head, solid. The aroma is very nice, because it’s not only sour components, but also delicate vanilla oak, very light Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. The mouthfeel is smoother than expected; there is caramel flavor, creamy, with fruity and woody notes, light vanilla, moderate sourness. Elegant and pleasant.

yngwie (16507) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle. Over a clear, reddish pale brown body sits a small, off-white head carefully allowing the aromas to let out. It’s quite vinegarish, with some broth, dried fruits and a certain oak aroma. The flavor goes in the same directions, but is more direct and evident, finishing with a touch of metal. It’s dry, full-bodied and with a pleasant level of carbonation. A pleasant one indeed. 110513
