suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Clear, dark amber/honey, bordering on light mahogany color. What started as a big white head quickly collapsed to a thin layer of bubbles. Little bit of lacing left behind. Smells sour, earthy. Like a gueuze. I’m guessing there is some brett in there. Little apple-y sweetness in there. Very much an alcohol presence. After that fades there is a very sweet brandy flavor, mixed with a peppery, cinnamony spiciness. An almost dry mouthfeel that quickly gives way to a sweet mouthfeel. Earthy. None of the sour aroma comes through in the taste, but it might be another gusher given some time.

Bottle. Light brown coloured beer with a reddish hint. Very light carbonation and a very small white head. Special, light sour fruity hinted aroma with a short malty touch. Full palate. Finish is sour sweet and fruity hinted with short touches of oak, herbs and malts. Not bad.

4.1
Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2009
Bottle @ Pre-ZBF, Alvinne. A hazy yellow/golden colored beer, with a little white head. The aroma is fresh, fruity, a little alcohol. Notes of wood. TRhe taste of wood with fruits like citrus and orange, some sweetness with notes of bitter. The aftertaste is a little sweet with bitter.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Draft at Farmers’ Cabinet. Pours a hazy pale golden orange color with golden yellowish-apricot hues and a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Chunks of lace left behind. Sweet boozy aroma with a strong barrel character. Hints of earthy oak, vanilla and brandy along with some funky yeast, mustard seed and citrus fruit. Medium bodied with a nice combination of earthy oak, zesty spice and boozy heat. Lots of spice especially coriander and pepper up front countered by earthy oak, vanill and prominent boozy sweet brandy. Althought the spirit flavor is prominent, it’s not too hot making it pretty quaffable. Sweet citrus notes with more of a pronounced mustard character than the base version. Spicy finish with lemon and orange peel toward the end of the swallow with a nice warm finish.

3.8
