750 ml bottle. Pours a dark orange amber colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of fresh citrusy hops, wood, apricot and herbal notes. Flavour of sweet fruitiness, brett, floral hops, heavy citrusy tartness and a bit of graininess. Full bodied. Alcohol warms nicely. Rather nice. olio (10274) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 23, 2016
75 cl bottle. 10/2014. tiong (7278) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 23, 2016
Pours hazy orange color with a small head. Nice apricot and orange notes, sourish peachy notes, yeast and spices. Spicy flavor, sour apricot, gooseberries, some rowan berries and bretta yeast, the red wine barrel is quite distant. Very nice sourness here, somewhat fruity too.
750ml bottle, 2014 vintage. Pours reddish orange with a small white head. Aroma of ripe fruits, vinous notes, bretta, oak, wood, hints of vanilla and berries. Taste is smooth, sweetish and vinous with some oak, bretta, vanilla, wood, toffee and ripe fruits. Finish is smooth, sweet and vinous with some funky bretta, farmyard, ripe fruits, toffee, caramel and yeast. Pretty sweet but quite good. laiti (8469) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 23, 2016

Aroma has ripe apricot, some bretta tones and orange juice. Flavour has orange juice, some bretta, apricot and mild tartness in the finish. Easy-going bretta-ale but nothing special.
Clear, orange gold. Almost no tan head. Funky, gym socks and basement, some deeper fruits. Quite sour, some hops bitterness, nice sweet base. Lightly chewy, some effervescence, reasonably acidic. Quite long finish. Pretty great.

Pours a cloudy toasted orange color with a small, light yellow head that quickly dissipates. On the nose is citrus/orange lemon cake. Taste is immediately tart but not ought right sour. A big squeeze of lemon onto yellow cake - other citrus notes and a faint background of apricots. Hints of golden brown toast on the back end and the harness lingers through the finish. Mouthfeel is much lighter than I expected and not sticky at all which I think is a feat given its tartness. Tiny and lively carbonation. This is fantastic and a great summer day drinker which I didn’t expect given red wine barrel aging. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2016
Draught at the brewery during the tour.
APPEARANCE: clear blond beer.
NOSE: somewhat sour, fruity, oak.
TASTE: sweet, little sour, fruity. Decent in general, but expected more RRistow12 (866) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2016 Tasted from bottle. Pours an orange copper with white fizzy head that quickly fades. Aroma is fruity with cherry, berries and some melon with a little sour funk. Taste is moderate to heavily sour. Flavors of Brett, Belgian yeast, caramel, tropical fruits. Light and effervescent on the palate. Sours aren’t my thing but great for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone DiarmaidBHK (4907) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Draft at Appalachian vintner. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves solid lacing in the glass. Has some solid red wine notes on the nose. Has some tartness and red wine character on the tongue. Lingers a bit. Solid for style but not as spectacular as I was hoping for.
