thewolf (12932) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle. [thank you, Harrisoni]
Pours lightly hazy copper-red with a fine, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has some tart fruit notes, clear green grapes, oak, red wine, light raspberries and a touch of caramel. Highish carbonation, a bit thin mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly tart, some caramel, lots of oak, good fruitiness, grapes, peach. Light lemony and very dry finish. Fine, but it might have fared better with another percent in alcohol?

Pours slighty hazy copper with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, tartness, gooseberry, funk and brett. Taste is light sweet and heavy sour with a long sour, fruity and funky finish. Body is light, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

jercraigs (11071) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2009
2009-08-01. Hazy pastel golden body body, modest beige head. (3+) Interesting aroma, fruit/wood/bourbon? (6+) Flavour is a bit muddled, light sour touches, wood, mild malt is odd. Average palate. Meh. Okay, but muddled at times, doesn’t come together very well at times. Bottle at BCTC

marcus (10865) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Bottle at the brewery. This copper ale poured with a decent beige head and a delightlful oak aroma. The wild yeast provides a delicious sourness to the mild base. It is a very subtle but well-crafted flavor that has benefited from 8 months in a burgundy barrel.

22/IV/13 - 75cl bottle @ Rampkrot (Deurne) - BB: II/2014 (2013-349) Thanks to 77ships for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy amber to orange beer, small white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: sour, vinegar, bretta, grains, bit sweet, caramel. MF: ok carbon, a bit much maby, light to medium body. Taste: sour start, green apples, lemony, bretta touch, some alcohol, woody, oak, little bitter. Aftertaste: woody, red wine vinegar if not so sour though, a nice sourness, bit bretty, dry, little bitter. A very nice and balanced sour beer!
