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.

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.

Backlog review, bottle tasted early 2011. Opens a gusher, pours dark prune with thin head. Aroma opens with dark vinegar, notes of red wine and oak- sweet, fruity notes become more apparent with warmth and Pannepot begins to peak through. Taste is not as sour as the aroma would suggest, with light vinegar wine qualities on the front, followed by dark fruits and an almost chocolate-like character at the end, finishing with a slight, round bitterness and vinous aftertaste. Medium light body, though viscous, coating the tongue. Quite nice, Pannepot is still there, but some great, almost oud-bruin type notes come out.

Sample at ’het Schooltje’ Oostvleteren. I always imagine that the quality of the beer deteriorates a little because it’s kept for a longer time in the ’tap trailer’. Though amazing idea!
Appearance: black beer, though not pitch black. No head.
Nose: red fruits, some brett, wood.
Taste: wood, very sweet and little to no sourness noticeable, very vinous. Alcohol noticeable, coffee.
Little disappointed in this version, since I like pannepot a lot.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ borefts beer festival 2012. Secretly dark reddish with a brown head. Smells like fruits of the forrest and just a slight hint of the wild yeast. Tastes like summer, berries and melancholy. Grassy hop, and again the yeast is not that overwhelming. Nice though! More interesting than the original imo.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Het Oude Schooltje, Oostvleteren - 23/03/13.
Clear dark mahogony brown with a thin tan head that clears to the edge and leaves light spotting atop the beer.
Nose carries light sour tones, dark fruits, hint of chocolate, dates, raisens.
Taste comprises toffee, dark fruits, yeast, brett notes.
Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, dry in the finish.
Decent offering but I prefer the standard Pannepot - the balance of this one is a little of kilter.
