3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (750 ml). 2008 vintage. Shared by verbalessence, thanks! Dark/amber brown with a small ring of beige foam and little to no lacing. Aroma is dusty and old with mushrooms, red fruits, wooden notes, oxidation, light vanilla and winey notes. Taste is also dusty with caramel, mushrooms, red fruits, oxidation notes, wooden notes, wine, vanilla and caramel. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. This is a very strange beast. There’s notes of the regular Pannepot, but they are buried under dust and the light sourness. The 10% alcohol is quite well hidden. Interesting.

Thanks koelschtrinker! A bit of a gusher. Pours super dark black/brown with a small tan head. The smell is dark fruit, cherry, dark malt. The taste is rich malt, dark fruit, a bit of slight tart sourness. The body is with nice carbonation.

Vineux comme un porto, fruits foncés en abondance, chocolat, légère acidité. Brillant liquide que j’ai gardé sur la table tout le long de la soirée.

This is a cool, velvety beast. Bretta is very subtle here, almost overpowered by the rest of the beer - and that’s saying a lot. Pours whiskey dark without head or lacing like the other pannepots. Had this after a taster served up by Chris at Ebenezer Kezar’s on a whim with pannepot reserva and pannepeut. Finishes with nice tang.

On tap at Ebenezar’s Pub. Dark brown pour with an off white head. Sour brett aromas. Dry with dominating brett characteristics. Some boozy heat with spices and caramel malt notes. Average body and mouthfeel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft @ Ebenezer’s in Lovell, ME. Muddy, dark brown color. Aromas of burnt sugar, plums, oak and off wine notes. Flavor does have the Quadruple flavors and base with the sour being real subtle. The wine barrel did some really interesting things to this flavor profile. Nice level of complex Barrel aging. Very good and maybe my favorite Sour Red / Brown brew, as I don’t really drink much of the style.

So freaking stoked to finally be able to try this. Draft at Ebenezer’s. Same appearance as regular pannepot with dark black and amber hues on the edges Nose was sweet and sour with lactic tartness and fruitiness. Taste is otherworldly. this has taken a fantastic belgian quad and made it into a sour brown ale. No booziness, not too sweet but I could drink this all day. it’s a fantastic beer.

You expect a strong quadrupel like Belgian ale, based on a taste of sour wild yeast. This is exactly whay you get and it is awesome. It has some added complexity with notes of red wine and oak. Very, very good.
