Back in 2008, Urbain had the idea to age some Pannepot on wild yeast strains. As this was yet another of his crazy experiments, the risk was calculated and minimalized to an amount of 450 litres of Pannepot that was used on 2 barrels only. French red wine oak barrels were used were from Chateau Tour Baladoz, a superb Saint Emilion Grand Cru. Urbain used these barrels before to age Earthmonk and he has huge faith in the owner of the vineyard. After 2 years of peaceful aging, Alex from Brasserie 4:20 in Rome came by, and he did not want to leave without buying at least one barrel of beer at the brewery. Urbain cried when he had to prepare one of his barrels for shipment. Then he decided to bottle the other barrel, so he could start all over again.

abemorsten (3565) - Mosterøy, - OCT 2, 2012
On tap at Borefts beer festival 2012. Small creamy light brown head on a cloudy deep prune mahogany colored head. Prune compot and chutney on the nose. Boozy, wild yeast, berries and plenty of remainig sweetness in the mouth. Dried fruits, prunes stand out. Complex. Full body. Dry tongue. Alco warmth.

Bottle at RBESG 2016 Grand Tasting Part 1, Brew Pub Le Sec. A little gushing to start, be careful! Very hazy brown with a ring tan head. Aroma of overripe dark fruits, caramel, light brett funk, a little tart dark fruit raisins and prunes. Flavour is above moderate sweet, light moderate bitter and light sour. Full bodied with soft carbonation. I was worried this would just be infected Pannepot but it comes together very well and drinks superbly.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2016 From notes (09/07/2014), on tap at Ebenezer’s in Maine. Incredible and complex. Belgian malt and yeast are evident, but are taken in entirely new directions with the wild yeast strains. The aroma has a pronounced barnyard and leather smell, although it’s well integrated into everything else. Outstanding.

wedgie9 (2638) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2015
From notes. Tasted on 3/16/13 from a capped 750mL bottle (light gusher) that I shared at our epic Bottleworks tasting with Curtis, Jedi, and crews from Knoxville and Nashville. Pours dark auburn with a thick beige, pink-tinted head that leaves average lace. The nose is classic raisin and candi sugar Pannepot with a ton of funky, earthy, and spicy yeast. The flavor is plenty roasted with some oak added, but is all about the dried fruit quad and crazy funky yeast, not really sour, but super funky. The body is full with average carbonation and a long malty, roasted, and funky/spicy finish.

Keg at CBC2012, from some old notes. Deep brown, no head. Aroma is raisin, dried fruit, prunes. Thin in the mouth, slight carb. Flavour is tart, then sweet and raisiny - like dried fruit soaked in orange juice - then a touch of funk and wood, slight vanilla. Interesting.
