JorisPPattyn (8099) - Antwerpen, - JUN 11, 2013
Thick-set, light amberish head over clear foxy-amber beer, with mild carbonation. Very vinous nose, but also with a marked wild yeast/Brett component; quite woody. Red berries, lightly sourish fruit, and a weird hint at omelet with parsley. Woody, liquorice without sweetness. Faint wild yeasts, as faintly fruity and faintly vinous; all of the nosecomponents diminished, except for the wood which is increased in importance, and the omelet which doesn’t return. Warming up, preserved orange. Feels a lot more carbonated than the visual; quite slick, faint alcoholwarming, medium bodied. Certainly not lacking in flavour, but undeniably, the nose promised so much more complexity.

angel77 (1159) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 30, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl en el momento en el lúpulo el 27-12-2014. Con fecha de cons pref para antes de 20-02-2018. color cobrizo translúcido con poca espuma de poca retención. Aromas y sabores ácidos y de maderas de vinos blancos con un cuerpo medio de 7 vol con muy poco gas dándole sensación de vino mas que de cerveza. Mejor que su base, lo mejor, los toques frescos del vino y los de las maderas.

fkoolen (390) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2014
On tap @ Mikkeller, Bangkok. Orange, slightly hazy, beige head. Nose and taste are big on wild yeastiness: sour, tard and earthy, which all linger in the aftertaste. Fruity too, with peach and marmalade. A bit peppery. Nicely subtle white wine, cognac and barrel tones. Light bodied (making it an easy drinkable ale but also limiting the complex and interesting flavours, sadly), lively carbonation, refreshing mouthfeel.

tmrmwel (1078) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2014
On tap @ Mikkeller & Friends, København. Pours dark golden with a creamy mocha head. Aroma is dark fruits with tannins and oak barrels, as well as nuts and balsamic vinegar. Creamy body with average carbonation. Flavour is tart with light farmyard notes, oak barrels and tannins, as well as nuts, figs and kandi. Lingering tart wooden finish.

larsga (6356) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
Big beige head. Clear deep red body. Deep vinous barnyard aroma with salty fruity earthy notes. Fruity earthy barnyard aroma with alcoholic white wine notes. Dry-sweet earthy barnyard taste with salty wooden notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish vinuous white wine aftertaste with spicy barnyard notes. Lovely. Highly drinkable, balanced and overall very nice. (0.375l bottle, don’t remember where from.)

Leighton (12272) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle at the chriso Pre-GBBF Shindig 2013 - London. Pours mostly clear amber with a soft, off-white foam head. Big breat character, some sweat, berries, old wood. Medium bodied with average to lively carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with a bit of tangy wood, more brett funk, some fruity sweetness, a bit of alcohol, grass. Decent.

stefannilssons (1498) - SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2014
Jajamän, det här var välsmakande dock var både kroppen och smaken lite för tam för min smak. Smaken bar toner av äpplemust och sassafras, balansen var tjusigt avvägd.

GlasgowTAD (175) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2014
Wine and caramel on the aroma. Golden in appearance, minimal to no head. Sour and wine taste, with a touch of sweetness at some point. Fairly lively with a light body, the colour reminded me of cognac. Overall: Nice ale with a wine complexity to it, verging on a sweeter sour ale due to white wine aging.

simont1 (321) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 White pepper notes with a bready background, quite dry, but a slight acidic tartness, the taste is upfront and then a sudden blandness, which ends up with ’is this it’, something missing, but can’t put a word on it.
