Bottle share, again thanks to Matt. Murky brown color with a sandy head. Nose is fruity and sour, brett, and oak. A deep underlying wave of sweetness accented nicely by the sour notes. Oak, brett, vanilla, and something fruity like pie cherries. Soft. Very nice. Steve_0 (3818) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle at home with friends and family. Pour is deep brown with a light red tint and small tan head that quickly dissipated. Red wine vinegar, some spice, cinnamon, brown sugar, caramelly, green apples and pears in the aroma. Taste is red wine, some caramel, light salt, somewhat acidic, dark fruits, tangy, and oaky with a semi sour finish. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation.

Bottle gifted by daknole. Thank you, my friend, for the great hang, conversation, and delicious beers.
The beer is a dark chestnut hue with tinges of russet and crimson, sporting a thin, beige collar. The aroma brings brettanomyces, funk, cherry, oak, a touch of spice. Similar flavor, with additional notes of balsamic vinegar, black currant, red wine, port. Subtle notes of nuts, earth. Light to medium bodied with moderate acidity. Similar in some regards to an oud bruin. A delicious beer. I’ll be sipping on this for the next couple hours. Cheers Dak! JefVerstraete (3635) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2016
Botle from De Hopduvel. Dark brown colour, beige foam. Medium carbonation. Aroma of red fruit, vinegar, wood, cognac. Tart with light sweet notes. Nice and balanced. SlackerMads (3523) - DENMARK - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle not in Nørrebroparken. Dark chestnut brown with a medium sized diminishing tan head. Wooden, light acetone, dark berries, band aid, fruit stones, dried apricot. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet and sour. Not too abrasive and opens a lot as it warms up.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2014 Bottle cheers to the main man Adza. Pours clearish light brown with a sticky khaki bunch of bubbles around the side. The nose gives off a load of acidity and dark fruits with plenty of dates and sticky raisin sweetness. The cognac shines nicely without over powering at all. The taste is another story. Layers and layers. Coganc gives it a slightly oily feel where the acidity cuts through perfectly. Raisin-like sweetness, mild orange juiciness. Plenty of mild spices focusing on cinnamon. It has this tartness to it but the funk drives through to the finish. So much going on. This is incredible umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to Jason for sharing. Reddish-brown pour with a small head that quickly fades to a thin ring. Aromas are overripe cherries, musty oak, light barnyard, and vinegar. Taste has a light to medium sourness. Moderate musty funk with lots of red fruit and a touch of booze. Decent but I’m just not loving sour red/browns lately.
