olio (9368) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
50 cl bottle @ PBF 2013.
Pours deep dark ruby red color with a small off-white head. Aroma of sour fruits, dark berries, some wood and hops. Flavor of sour dark berries, faint malts, and some bilberries. Sour and somewhat one-dimensional but excels at that.

50cl bottle, BB 2016, cheers David for the bottle. Brune foncée, col léger moka laissant un léger filament huileux sur le verre. Arôme est malté moyen avec cette pointe de barrique-chêne et un bouquet de brett léger se mariant parfaitement au côté malté. Ce dernier tire vers le caramel et grillé De fines effluves de vin rouge et fruits sont à noter, le tout est très bien en balance. Palais est agréable et ici le brett tout comme le vin rouge, barrique et malt sont en belle harmonie sans que aucuns ne prennent le dessus. Malt est dans le style grillé/caramel pour un fini assez sec de vin rouge et fruité arrivent en retrait et sont complétés par le brett qui vient donner une pointe d’aigreur-funk subtile à la douceur du vin rouge. Le boisé complète le tout avec une pointe d’épice. Le tout reste léger malgré les 8.5% facile à boire et bien complexe. Je ne sais pas ce qu’il se passe chez Mikkeller mais ces qcq dernières bières BA m’ont très bien plu ce qui n’était pas trop le cas auparavant.

Hansen (8435) - Assentoft, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2013
Stout? With brett and red wine barrel? Dark brown with a light brown head. Lasting. Nice flavor, red wine, lots of it, vanilla, and acid. Flavor is a bit unharmonic, more red wine, roasted notes too, acid. Astringent.

77ships (8210) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2013
50 cl. bottle split with Marko as his 3500th rating @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Crazy ugly label both drawing as well as colour design, the whole deal. Pours black with little and disappearing beige head. Nose is very heavy on the typical standard USA brett – still baffled by the fact that sour beers have become so homogonous – mixed some yoghurt lactic sour wine, quite a standard USA profile, sour malts, tannins and sticky sweet red wine – apparently Brunello. Taste carries trough similar, very heavy, lots of USA-style Brett in here, strongly yoghurt lactic red wine, sour thicker malts, barrel, sourness has been upped as is customary, light roast, citrus sourness,… Oddly fuller brett body as usual. Good but I am still expecting sours to be unique brews – probably shouldn’t have started out with lambic’s – my bad.

14/IX/13 - on tap @ Hoppy Loft (Delirium café, Brussels) - BB: n/a (2013-853) Thanks to PriorL, Mathieu87 and Thomas for sharing the beer!

Clear dark brown beer, creamy beige to brown head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: bit smoky, ashes, caramel, mocha and coffee, sourish, sugary, bit funky, woody. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity, red sour berries, toast, mocha, coffee, woody bitterness, funky. Aftertaste: sourish, tobacco, earthy, bit smoky, red sour berries. Not really my thing, but it’s an interesting experiment, that’s for sure.

laiti (8081) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
50 cl bottle @ PBF VIII, BBE 2016
Aroma has sour berry notes, some oak and bilberries. Flavour has cherries, some bilberries and woodyu notes. Also some ashy notes at the end of the glass. A battle of stout and oud bruin. And unfortunately the last one is winning.

lusikka (7700) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2013
500 ml bottle @ Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Rated on 24.2.2013.
Pours a black colour with a small white head. Aroma is strong with red wine notes, oak and dark chocolate. Flavour is very rich and big with roasted malts, red wine, tangy citrus, oak, cherries, dark chocolate, berries and tannine. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, vinous, quite complex finish. For a stout this is quite unique.
