COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Scarlett and Brett er, som navnet måske antyder, en rødligt farvet øl med brettanomyces.
Vi begyndte med at brygge en stærk lys ale, hvor vi anvendte en belgisk gærstreng med masser af aromatisk personlighed. Da øllet var gæret færdig, tilsatte vi betydelige mængder brettanomyces og lactobacillus for at gære den smule restsukker, som den belgiske gær havde efterladt, helt ud. Herefter tilsatte vi hindbærpuré og lod sukkeret heri blive gæret ud af vildgæren.
Resultatet er blevet en rødlig øl med præg af både den belgiske gær samt de 2 vildgærsstammer og naturligvis hindbær.

English: A special made for the release event of Xbeeriment Black Force One. There was only one keg made of this and there will be only one serving; at Ølbutikken (CPH) on January 9th, 2010.
A strong pale beer fermented with a Belgian yeast strain. We then added some Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus to finish off the fermentation and then left it in a keg for 8 months..... And then we added some raspberry puré in the keg and gave the brett and lacto another month to ferment the sugar in the fruit puré.

henrikb (1258) - Aarhus, - JAN 24, 2010
Draft - Very beautiful red amber body with a fine creamy off white head; Super super fresh and nice nose, the berries, the yeast and the malts are very very well matched, excellent; Pleasant but a little to malt full and soft body, it lacks the excellent fruits and freshness of the nose; Full finish with lots of alcohol, again not fresh enough compared to the excellent nose. Very good and very enjoyable beer.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2010
On tap. Pours a cloudy and opaque deep red with a huge and dense pink head. Extreme raspberry aroma with a whiff of marzipan. Quite full-bodied with distinct - almost fat - berry notes. The Brett adds a fresh and crisp edge but is otherwise fairly discreet. Has a lightly astringent finish with detectable alcohol. 090110

Cloudy red color. The fuity aroma is also a bit milky and lactic. Soft mouthfeel, strong body, sweet fruitness, low acidity, correct bitterness; the final is a bit breadish. There is not much Brett, but it’s quite good.

Draught @ Xbeeriment Black Force One Launch
- Ølbutikken, Oehlenschlægersgade 2, 1663 København, Denmark.

Hazy red purple color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white pink head. Aroma is moderate to heavy fruity, raspberry, strawberry, light pineapple, aroma is a bit artificial - juicy, alcohol. Flavor is light heavy berry sweet and light to moderate acidic with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. [20100109]

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2010
Tap @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours hazy pale red with a small, creamy, white-pink head. Lovely fruity aroma, strawberries, raspberries, some rhubarb, fine bretty feel. Light medicinic. Lowish carbonation, fine mouthfeel, lightly oily. Flavour is very sweet fruity at first, some firm maltiness and then comes the dryness. Very bretty, slightly oaky, light fruity tartness. There is some viniousness in there as well. Good, but perhaps a tad too oily and initially sweet.

Christian (11027) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2010
Cloudy red with a lasting pink head. Initially sour and funky aroma, but then the berries arrive, bordering on rasperry candy. Sweetish berry flavour with a slightly sour touch, some malt and a little alcohol. Bordering on cloying, but served in small glasses.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 19, 2010
Draught. Unclear reddish colour. Pleasant sour fruity aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a pleasant sourness along with a good frutiness (cherries indeed), bit sweet. Long lasting pleasant fruity sour (brett) finish. Hides the alc well. Summer time is waiting!
