oh6gdx (26447) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2017
[email protected] Orangeish amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts, some yeast, mild white wine like "fruitiness" as well. Flavour is mild spices, some bitter floral notes along with some winelike notes as well as mild wood and some tartness. Somewhat dry palate.

rodenbach99 (4552) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2017
Une bouteille au Saint-Bock. Une robe jaune foncée qui ne fit que peu de mousse. Un nez de bois, de fruits asiatiques, de vin blanc et de citron. Une bouche bien construite autour du bois et du vin. Les litchis ajoutent une touche agréable. Pas trop funk, pas trop sucrée, pas trop acide. Agréable.

Zlotta (3058) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2016 Sampled from 0.375 l bottle. Clear, amber with an off-white head. Sweetish, malty aroma of caramel, honey, Belgian candy and some vanilla. Sweetish-malty, moderately yeasty-spicy taste of caramel, honey, vanilla, some white grapes and hints of oak, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately yeasty-spicy and a bit dry finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!

Andrus86 (635) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2016
BOTTLE. Cloudy muddy brown pour with flat white head.. Sweet fruit cordial nose, white sugar, no booze or "beer" aroma to me!?.. Sweet toffee malt start disappears to a easy/thin quick finishing combo of sweet & semi bitter red berries.. Sourced RW

Poured from 375mL bottle [bottle date 15/04/16]. Reddish-orange brown with off-white-to-beige head, tiny bit of sediment. Aroma of white wine and sour brett. Taste of mild lychee and white wine, belgian yeast, subtle brett.

BlazerT (1052) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 17, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Deep amber, medium hazy with medium, white, semi-densed head. Aroma again is funky, woody, basement, leather. Characteristic mild, sweet white wine barrel aromas broken by some apple and peachy sensations. Taste is semi-dry, little sour (acidic, probably because of lychee), nicely balanced by semi-sweet malty profile. Finish is acidic, brett and refreshing. In general very nice, refreshing, well balanced wild ale, definetely worth trying.
