pours unclear yet bright medium dark golden with a creamy off-white head offering good retention and lacing. intense leathery and peppery bretts, borderline rotten fruits - berries, toasted spicy wheat, chocolate brettiness, rhubarb, coffee grinds, spices - miscellaneous although dill seeps through. bright carbonation, light body, dry bretty-woody-very astringent finish. more complex and less off (as per caramel and slightly rotten fruitiness) than chardonnay/mango edition. tasty and dry enough to make it enjoyable. antonstoop (295) - - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle. Copper/amber pour, off-white head. Little retention/some lace. Aroma of dust, wine, barrel, funk. Palate is sweet, oak, lightly bitter, brett. Palate is dry, slick, lightly bitter finish. A bit muddled, like drinking old wine....

Bottle. Copper/amber pour, off-white head. Little retention/some lace. Aroma of dust, wine, barrel, funk. Palate is sweet, oak, lightly bitter, brett. Palate is dry, slick, lightly bitter finish. A bit muddled. HonusWagner (2168) - Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Aroma is lightly barnyardy, hints of tartness/wine barrel. A bit tempered. But the flavor is quite solid, with a bretty pineapple character given a tart edge by wine barrel. Dry finish. In a world of mediocre Mikkeller sours, this one is quite good and probably a touch underrated. Elegant in its simplicity. Lectvay (191) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Dark amber, medium carbonation. Smell is tart apples, spiced apple cider, vinegar. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter up front, with a tingle of tartness a moment later. This intrigued me immediately, but it took a several sips to decide I really like it. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
Amber with a big fizzy head that falls quickly. Big Brett aroma, dill, pepper, barnyard. Taste is lots of Brett, sweet and bitter, string alcohol, some oak. Not particularly bad but not working for me.

375ml bottle served in a tulip glass.
A: Pours an cloudy amber color forming a huge fizzing beige head. Soapy and very persistent. Many lingering lacings left in the glass
S: Very fruity. Mild sourness in the nose. Strong notes of grapes and white wine. Notes of sweet malts too. Wood and some grassy hops in the very end. No alcohol could be noticed
T: Taste is just great. The sort of beer that I like. Slightly sweet upfront, followed by a smooth fruity sourness and a solid malts backbone. End is balanced hoppy bitterness. Strong notes of grapes, caramel malts and white wine. Notes of wood. Hops are earthy and grassy. Bitterness is moderate but present. No alcohol could be noticed in the taste too
M: Heavy body. A little bit molasses but more watery. Good carbonation. Fruit and mild sour/bitter aftertaste
O: Great drinkability. Great beer. Solid
