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… Tampa “Farewell to Sebletitje” Tasting… Murky dark-apricot ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet is fruity, funky and acidic – black cherry, lemon peel, leather and a light herbal component. Medium-bodied with gentle carbonation. The flavor is sweet, funky and moderately tart followed by good yeasty bitterness. Finishes crisp, bready and moderately bitter. Bottle courtesy of TheCheeseMan. Thanks, Dan!

Bottle @ Seabass going away party, Jan15th ’11 courtesy of Cheeseman. Brune/cuivre brumeuse, mousse est épaisse et beige. Note de fruit rouge avec un peu d’aigreur de tonneau de vin. Le tout se mélangeant avec le chêne. L’infection de la bière par le Brett donne des notes de basse-cour fétide. En y rêvant un peu, on peut s’imaginer le drakkar revenant au port avec une bière qui aura bravé les tempêtes.

Thanks Enjoyit for hooking me up with this rare one. Lots that I like: brett and Lactobacillus, wine barrel ageing, the style, the look (reddish with crowning thick white head of about 3/8 inch head and lacey) a complex set of aromas, the temparillo wine barrel, the brett, some balsamic vinegar, farm. Smooth almost creamy mouthfeel, the sourness only taps the lips and leaves a lasting impression in the aftertaste. You only live once with this one, so drink up.

(375ml bottle) Pours a cloudy amber body with a small beige head. Aroma of citrus, barnyard, sweet tart dust, herbs, yogurt, vinous, and earthiness. Flavor of citrus, earth, grass, lacto, brett, caramel, and red wine with a dry wood finish.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Bottle. I initially sampled this at the Stockholm Beer & Whiskey fest in September 2009, then split a bottle with my cousin on one subsequent occasion. Pours murky brown, topped with a thin off-white head. Musty, very funky aroma with sour cherry and mild spice. Palate is similar to aroma with lots of musty, earthy character with notes of wild yeast, sour cherry, and wood. Finishes tart. Very nice.

TBone (14618) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2010
Bottled (bottled June 2009)
Murky brown color, small off-white head. Sour fruity, woody-earthy aroma. Medium-bodied, actually quite for this ABV. Tartness, fruits (grapes, strawberry), red wine barrel tannines, earth in the flavor. A bit too cellary, otherwise quite drinkable (not excessive sourness).

oh6gdx (23259) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2010
Bottled. Hazy amber colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruits, sour wood, some spices and mild farmyard. Flavour is fruits, sour wood, mild vanilla and some mild caramel. Though a short texted rating, very complex and rather nice sour beer, not all too far from the lambic sourness, although something slight lacks for that. A brilliant sour ale anyways!

Smells of sour apples and vinegar. Perfect carbonation. Oaky and winey and vinegary. Tastes like a viking ship coming home.

garza (572) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - JUL 20, 2010
