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.

Pours a golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma is clove, coriander, spice, and some lactic acid. Flavor is sweet clove, coriander, spice, and lactic acid. Lightly tart. Very good.

scirtes (613) - 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.

Gold, with a white head. Sour apple aroma and taste, with a drying biscuity finish that seems to include Brett. Thanks, Dan! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PanMarek (423) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Mild resiney hop nose with a touch of spice. Cloudy, slightly dark golden pour. It tastes of coriander / pepper at the outset and finishes with the piney hops. Moderately dry at the end. Smooth mouthfeel with slight bitter coarseness around the edges. RateBeer calls it a Belgian Ale, but it tastes to me more like a dry, yeasty pale ale.

tightslice (1271) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 28, 2016
On tap at Redlight in Orlando, FL. Aroma is especially fruity and floral without being nauseous, obnoxious or noxious. Getting dry wood, minerals, lightly spiced fruits. Silky and dry. Jolly Pumpkin can do no wrong.

UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAY 6, 2016
Appearance: hazy medium gold with two fat fingers of fluffy ivory head, good retention and decent lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tart citrus, yeast, peppercorn, wood, barnyard funk. (9/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate-low bitter, moderate-high tart, light funk. (9/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, mildly funky finish. (4/5) Another lovely tart wild from JP. I’m assuming the Grains of Paradise are responsible for the almost peppercorn-like spiciness on both the nose and the tongue. Again, nicely balanced tones of citrus, wood, and barnyard funk. Definitely a nice example of how to do brettanomyces properly. (17/20)
