Dark plum appearance. Mild head. Smell is fantastic. So cognac and liquor sweetness. Grapey and prune and toffee. Super grape forward. Fig and plum with sugar cane Splenda and some banana runt. The liquor cognac is really easy to pick out. So nice in the finish

Bottle bought @ The Mikkeller webshop. Pours reddish brown with a frothy beige head that leaves lots of spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny malty, fruity and funky with dark bread, pink grapefruit juice, pineapple juice, passion fruit, moist soil, hay, barnyard, leather, raspberries, blackberries and lemon zest. Taste is sour, tiny bitter, malty, fruity and funky with dark bread, caramel, cereal, lemon juice, grapefruit juice, passion fruit, moist hay, barnyard, moist soil and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is soft, dry, tart and medium bodied. Finish is sour , funky and fruity with dark bread, lemon juice, pineapple juice, passion fruit, moist hay, moist soil, leather, barnyard and lemon zest. Really interesting mix of an oud bruin and the tropical fruit funk of the Anchorage brett. Quite cool!

Habanero (4911) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2014
Bottled. Pours clear, amber with a small tan head. Aroma of wood,vanilla, caramel, red sour fruits, cognac and brett notes. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dy and pleasant tart. Medium bodied, oily to watery texture and soft carb. An excellent Sour indeed.

tmoreau (4743) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2014
Shared 750 ml. bottle, poured to snifters displaying a dark mahogany color, with a modest layer of off white foam the reduced to a persistent ring, leaving cling spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was tart grape & dark cherry, with barrel & tanniny notes, yeasty brett, and lurking, cognac-like alcohol presence. Medium+ bodied, the taste mimicked the aroma well, retained the yeasty funk, advanced the tartness to controlled sour, and finished pleasantly dry. Very nice!

Sampled at the W&C Clayton. It poured a dark black cherry color with a tan head. The aroma was of dark cherries, some mild funk and dark malts. The taste was of sweet berries, cherry, a little caramel and some funk in the finish. Very nice.

Bottle pour at the Brouwers event. Pours cola like brown with a very nice sour front aroma. So many sour flavors here. Cherry, grape, and a little apple. This is an incredible beer. Great stuff.
