bhensonb (14895) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours hazy dark amber with a foamy/creamy dirty beige head. Aroma of "heavy" white wine, oak, sour light pitted fruit. Goes bubble gum a bit. Med + body. Flavor is light sour, winey, light pitted fruit with a lot of oak.

mixmasterob (1057) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Clear deep golden pour with a fizzy white head. Aroma was musty, light funk cheese, grainy, very vinous. Love the white wine presence. Flavors were lightly sweet, bready with notes of brett, vanilla, oak and white wine. Fizzy mouthfeel, somewhat syrupy with a nice coating factor. Not sour by any means yet a nice wild-ness to it. Awesome stuff.

marcus (9992) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours amber with a pretty off-white head and a chardonnay aroma. There is a light fruit and wine flavor with an oaky finish.

I can see where they were going with this, and I generally like mikkeller beer. I want to say that it was a well-Rounded beer full of oak and wine flavors, but it comes across with sweaty/bad breath flavors and aromas. If you pull it apart it might be due to charred oak from the barrel. In any case, Im not a fan.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle at Dans with friends. Pour is deep orange with a fluffy white head and decent lacing. Floral, medicinal, chalk, light wood, funk, and pears in the aroma. Taste is bready, band-aid, cobwebs, apples, pineapple, medicinal, and light funk, but still pretty smooth. Medium body with high carbonation. Pretty different, but cool.

arminjewell (9567) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Pour out of 375 mL bottle, thanks to Steve for the pour! Dark orange-red pour with white head, aroma has notes of sour grain, vanilla, touch of white grape, hints of lactic, white vinegar, slight funky notes as well, with some medicinal notes. Taste is a mix of dirty shoe, sweaty sock, some hints of white fruit, touch of earth, hints of ashy char notes, touch of grape, finishing fairly sweet, ashy. Weird as hell, the ash is very odd.

adnielsen (10584) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle @ Dans house, courtesy of steve_0. Thanks Stephen! Clear, dark orange appearance with a cream colored head. Funky, white grape, spicy yeasty, pear, herbal aroma. Tangy, bandaid, white wine, light oaky, a touch funky, apple, pear, mild lemon flavor. A little off but fun to try.

b3shine (8675) - Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2012
12.7 oz bottle to oversized snifter. Looks good; a cloudy brown with good carbonation and off-white lacing. Smells good too; sweet, malty, and tart/funky with notes of the wine barrels present. Tastes like it smells, but not quite as good, and with a fairly dry, average mouthfeel. Still, really pleasant beer; just not worth $1/oz.

laiti (8249) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2012
37,5 cl bottle @ vPBF, BBE 06.11.2018
Aroma is somewhat sour and tart with earthy notes. Flavour is tart and somewhat sour with citron, some earthy notes and hints of orange. Palate is a bit too high on CO2. A bit too much white wine here, but sour and nice anyway.
