Pours cloudy orange, some beige foam that is coming down slowly. Aroma is autumny, nice colored leaves, apple peels and yes, I am getting also tropical fruits, papaya and a bit of mango. Little horse blanket from the brett. Taste is a bit prickly bitter and sourness is also strong. Apple peel bitterness, if it makes any sense. Would be just perfect with lemon tart. Body has become a bit watery with time but still great.

TimE (5235) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 3, 2016
Hazy light medium amber. Sour nose with bread and the spice rack has been dumped in with lots of grains of paradise, and fennel I think. Sour mouth, tons of spicy with aggressive bitter finish. Very interesting but a but all over the place. Lots of fennel finish. Interesting.

ineedbeer (1927) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Poured from a 750 ml bottle with a 5/18/2011 date. Aroma is bright and fruity with citrus, tropical fruit and some stone fruit. A bit of a sweet, malt note with some caramel and cracker malt notes. A light musty note. Faint phenolic notes with down coriander and grains of paradise. Pours a somewhat bright, dark copper color with a medium large, thick white head that slowly recedes to a thin film that lingers in clumps in the center. Light lacing and small legs. Flavor has a light sweetness with a bit of honey and some light cracker malt notes. Medium light acidity with some moderate citrus and tropical fruit. Faint stone fruit notes. Some medium light phenolics with coriander and grains of paradise. Light bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and super soft and silky with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, the age has added some maltiness, but its still a bright, fruity beer. Perhaps a but muted due to age. Mouthfeel is pretty amazing though; super soft and creamy.

Grand Cru Classe. To prawda. Piwo kwaskowe, wytrawne i zlozone. Szampanskie wysycenie, piana wielka i trwala, wystrzelil kapsel i przy tym z polowa piwa tak wiec za bardzo musujące. Ale wspaniale w smaku cos miedzy lambickiem a lekkim belgijskim Blond Ale. Aromat stajni, w smaku kwas z kapusty kwaszonej, cytryny i limonki, do tego tarta jablkowa, kwaskowe jabłka granny smith. Jasne jaskrawe i bardzo mętne. Posmak drewna i wytrawnego wina gronowego pozostawia. Klasa niesamowita tego piwa. Niemal perfekcyjne piwo. Blisko mu do spontanicznej fermentacji i dzikich drozdzy, przypominalo w każdym aspekcie najlepsze belgijskie Oude Gueuze.

scirtes (459) - POLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle. Pours amber, hazy, with large off-white head with perfect lacing. Aromas of fruits (apricots, grapes), some phenolic, spicy notes, and woody, a bit funky notes as well. Taste is lightly sweet, with subtle sourness. Medium bodied, lively carbonated, with somewhat woody, tannic aftertaste. Nice and complex, a bit saison-like.
