Sampled at ESBLS. It poured a cloudy golden color with a white head. The aroma was peppery, with grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruits, funky and some bread. The taste was similar and moderately sweet with some hoppy bitterness. Nice.

beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - JUL 19, 2014
2013 vintage. Unclear medium yellow golden with a creamy white head, lasting with nice lace. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Mild Brett. Citrus. Tropical fruit. Grape. Raisin. Straw. Lightly spiced. Light and very dry, much more so than the nose lets on. Same can be said for the flavor, which is less fruity and sweet compared to the aroma. Lots of Brett influence. Dusty. Peppery. Grapefruit. White wine.. Grass. Earth. Cracker. Mild to moderate bitterness. Complex. I’d get a bunch of these if not for the cost. Great beer.

Strykzone (7355) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Sampled atvesbls. Very hazy yellow white. Sour flavor to say the least. And that is tart sour. Very bitter, too. But I got the dregs. Itvis zest. Fruit and soft malts. Probably not the way this beer is supposed to be enjoyed.

Bottle at Schouskjelleren. Lovely hazy gold. Apricots and funk in the nose. Sweet orange, barnyard, grapefruit in the finish. Just lovely.

3.6
Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma presents with dry chardonnay, citrus, lots of funk, barnyard, crisp green apples, some bretty stuff but not a whole lot. Also some earthy stuff, a dash of moldy age. Taste is initially sweet but quickly evolves into a mildly dry bitterness. Not much sourness, but more of a bubbly spicy/earthy feel accompanying the initial sweetness. The aroma is a bit tame, but the taste is quite fresh and nicely spiced.

3.4
BuckeyeBoy (7663) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 28, 2014
375ml bottle thanks to Toby. Pours out a cloudy light straw topped with a small white head. Nose is spice yeasts grass and some pepper. Taste is as the nose with lots of spice notes and a nice touch of belg yeast.
