Ibrew2or3 (8282) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Courtesy of dak. It pours clear copper with a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up tart notes, earthy notes, semi sweet notes and a faint level of vinegar. The taste has modest tartness mixing with vinegar notes and then some lemon to lime like hops. Beneath those notes is a thin layer of lemon grass like earthiness. Cool stuff.

Zlotta (2367) - Hagen, 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 (491) - 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

pictoman (955) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2016
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 (623) - 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.

rouhlas (2906) - GREECE - MAR 17, 2016
375 ml bottle at Les Fleurs du Malt - le bar, Lyon. Clear orange amber color with off white head. Malty and yeasty aroma, herbal spicy, fruity, caramel, light wood and vinous. Sweet, light bitter and light acidic spicy taste. Light to medium oily body with soft carbonation.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
375ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Orange-amber in colour with a large long lasting off-white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is bretty, yeasty, white grapes, citrusy. The flavour is yeasty and citrusy, bretty and funk, some light sweet fruits. Lightly sweet mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long citrusy, musty. Still really goods but prefer the regular white wine barrel. Still a 4+ beer though.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2015
Lasting yellowish white head atop a cloudy, sediment-filled brown body. Nose of a dubbel with some metallic undertones. Good yeasty flavour, lemon, tin and some solid malt in the background. Very interesting. I like it.

drjoeng (946) - SINGAPORE - SEP 15, 2015
8%ABV. Wild Ale. Tapped out a brown amber color, dusky and cloudy at about 20ºSRM. Nose is full deep alcoholic flavors. Sweet, darkly roasted malts. There are residual hints of stewed sweet fruits, definitely honeyed dates. Pronounced carbonation nicely balances alcholic palate that carries all the brooding dark toasted, sweet malty flavors with a light alcoholic palate and a dry ume finish.
