libertine (231) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2013
pours burgundy with a huge head that quickly dissipates. first thing I get when I put my nose to the glass is a huge burst of yeast. smell is strong of cinnamon and nutmeg. molasses and maple are in the background of the aroma. as the beer warms the maple and molasses seem to be coming out more and balance the cinnamon and nutmeg. flavor is everything the label describes yams, molasses, maple and spice and has a slight tartness for a sour. once again as the beer warmed it became much more pleasant to drink. i had this in my refrigerator at about 40 degrees. I see that on the bottle it says to serve at 55. I would definitely suggest anyone who drinks this follows this. I actually raised my ratings as this beer warmed. medium body, low carbonation and stjcky mouthfeel. finish is at first sweet and then becomes acidic. didnít like it at first but as it warmed this is a pretty damn good beer.

Itís very nice to know someone has your back. Mike shared this with me. I had been wanting to try this for a long time. Yam, muted brett, pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg. A lot of delicious spices. Right up my alley. Smooth minimal carbonation if any. A little vegetal and licorice in the finish.

bytemesis (3514) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Bottle with thanks to dbuckingham! Pours clear hazel ruby with a small beige head and some lacing. Aroma is caramel, yam, spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), brown sugar. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, no real bitterness, little acid. Medium body, low carbonation. A bit hot. Just not my thing, but definitely an improvement over the regular (either due to Brett or age, not sure.). I will say that neither I nor my drinking buddy got much Brett influence from the bottle. Maybe it died off a couple years ago.

Meilby (8271) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle 750ml @ The Bruery, Placentia, CA
Pours hazy brown with a few off-white bubbles. Aroma has notes of malt, toffee, spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, brett, alcohol and fruits. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long warm, fruity, toffee, spicy finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle at the taproom. Slightly hazy, amber in color, more or less headless. Mostly sweetish on the nose, some alcohol and maple syrup. Lightly spiced too. Warming on the palate, full bodied and flat. Lasting flavor with maple syrup, caramel and a touch of spices and tropical fruits. A bit boring this one. 130811

A good sour, a little bit of a breath of fresh air in the world of hops. For anybody that is a little over the hop craze, you should look at this beer.

Side by side with bourbon barreled version. Thinner than bourbon but a touch yammy for me.

Botella. Orange colour, off-white head. Aroma is quite sweet with caramel and fruit fruity and also the maple syrup is noticed. Good mouthfeel. Quite sweet flavour, caramel fruity with maple syrup adn bit spice. Quite sweet.
