sirsledz (16) - POLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Light brown beer with red reflections. Big head but very quickly falls. Nice lacing. In aroma tones of wood, wine, raisins. In taste clearly feel barrel and red wine tones. Very fuity and a little bit of alcohol and sour. Beer is so complex, perfect for long tasting.

Bottle, 33cl. Pours dark hazy amber with very stable, homogenous, white head creating a very nice lacing. Aroma is very complex and built of mashed red fruits, white grapes, peach, lemon and wood. Taste corresponds with beer scents: it develops from malty sweetness and goes to lingering bitterness in the background with a touch of intense fruity sweets. A pleasant dry feeling that corresponds to white wine and stays in the aftertaste interacts with funky microbial impression. The alcohol is totally hidden and the overall experience is very refreshing. Enormous drinkability. It is definately brewed with a great knownledge and control of biochemical processes. Another great and unique deal from To l.

tomekk1978 (791) - Ząbki, POLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Barwa: bursztynowa łagodnie miedziana, zdecydowanie zmętniona. Piana ecru, średniej wielkości, drobno pęcherzykowa, do tego ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: interesujący, wyraźnie winny, nieco waniliowy, ale też kwaśny, przyprawowy, wzbogacony białymi owocami (melon, agrest) oraz nutami drewnianymi. Smak: słodowy, pełny, umiarkowanie słodki, wyraźnie kwaskowy i cierpki, owocowy (j.w.). Goryczka zaznaczona, podobnie, jak subtelne nuty beczkowe, wanilia i nieco alkoholowa końcwka. Piwo zostało zakupione podczas niedawnej imprezy Beer Geek Madness (nierelacjonowanej jedynie z powodu słabej jakości zdjęć, piwnie bardzo udanej). Nie było tanie, jednak obiecane atrakcje w postaci leżakowania w beczkach po winie mszalnym i dodatku kwasu masłowego spowodowały, że zdecydowałem się po nie sięgnąć. Barwa i piana są całkiem niezłe. Aromat i smak także bardzo dobre. Początkowo mogą wydawać się kontrowersyjne, ale przy każdym węchu/ łyku zyskują. Żeby tylko cena była o połowę niższa, byłoby idealnie.

Davros (2220) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2014
Pours copper with a fading head. Nose shows some red wine notes, a funky wild yeast character, sweet malt, raspberries, gooseberries... Awesome stuff. A similar mix of flavours. Red wine, acidic wild yeast notes, sweet confectionery notes, caramel, chocolate. A bit cloying, needs more acidity. Nice moderately high carbonation.

Marheb (2863) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Des malts riches et pics qui suintent les bretts et le vin rouge dans une mixture impriale et sauvage. Une bonne rsine se fraye aussi un chemin, franchement dlicieux.

angelkostvo (829) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 21, 2013
Dark amber colour, small off white head. Aroma of vanilla, wine, candy sugar, citrus, pineapple, orange, anise, spices. Taste is very interesting, candy sugar sweetness, slight tartness and bitterness. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation.

Bov (10215) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 23, 2014
from Erzbierschof - pretty clear dark reddish beer with a little beige foam left; woody and light vinous; strong presence of cherries and hints of vanilla and red fruits marmalade; full-bodied, fairly bitter and with a decent sourness, long fruity and woody finish showing an increasing sourness - interesting and very pleasant

flip_soeperman (737) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Aroma of some horse with resin and caramel. Really nice medium bodied beer with a really complex thing going on. Quite some bitterness with a very dry taste. Reminds me of Evil Twin Disco Beer. Awesome beer.
