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.

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.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2016 From notes (09/07/2014), on tap at Ebenezerís 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 itís well integrated into everything else. Outstanding.

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.

This beer here, this beer I had @ the Grand Tasting... Compliments of whoever dropped it off at the center table, sheesh thanks whoever did that!
Pours a hazy brown color with a very small head.

The aroma is huge and rich, briny and leathery with some light tart fruit, some musty basement, and some plum.

The flavor is rich and boozy with only a light but well integrated sourness. There are some leathery notes and some plum... but the wild yeast seems to have eaten up a lot of what causes Pannepot to be sweet as this one is really fairly dry.

A really fun beer.

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. Thereís notes of the regular Pannepot, but they are buried under dust and the light sourness. The 10% alcohol is quite well hidden. Interesting.
