FullObs (136) - Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2012
37.5 cl bottle. Pours hazy amber witha big foamy head. Not sour at all but a nice funk, very mild tartness. mandarin, wood, and a big vinous character to this. Growing on me. Pretty good.

Zlotta (2355) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Sampled from 0.375 bottle. Huge gusher! Slightly hazy, golden amber with an off-white head. Slightly sourish, a bit funky and slightly fruity aroma of white grapes, gooseberry, lemon, some barnyard and a touch of oak. Quite sour, rather fruity and moderately funky taste of lemon, gooseberry, white grapes, oak and barnyard, followed by a medium long, rather tart and very dry finish. Thin to medium body, very effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Quite nice!

Lilja (2910) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2016
Flaska från DK. Smak och doft av humle, brett, malt, karamell, äpplen, citron, citrus, fat, jord, gröna druvor med toner av vinäger, vita russin och kryddor. Fruktig, viss syrlighet, lagom sötma, komplex med viss obalans. Gott!

thedm (5881) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 19, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a strong bubbly carbonation semi-opaque golden brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was musty. The off-tasting mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering spicy aftertaste. The strange flavor contained notes of bitter semi-sweet old ale cloves mild wheat mild spice mild hops and bread dough. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

BlazerT (597) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 16, 2016
Bottle. Snifter. Burnt orange/deep aber, medium hazy with small to medium, white, semi densed head. Aroma is complex - first of all nice, smooth breet characteristics - funky with bit of basement and leather aromas. You can also find some woody and citrus notes. Everything is broken by winey and floral honey-like aromas (BA in white wine). This makes this beer really balanced. Taste is semi-dry to dry, but with the nice winey finish, which is very reminds us of BA process. In general nice, funky, drinkable and balanced beer with all the features of Mikkeller’s BA edition in white wine barrels.

Tognetta (777) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 8, 2016
Marrom levemente avermelhada, espuma bege de boa formação e persis. Aroma facilmente notável de vinho branco e brett, leve amadeirado com o aumento da temperatura, adocicada. Paladar de leve acidez e dulçor, novamente uvas verdes, maça verde, mais malte com o tempo. Corpo médio pra licoroso, média carbonataçao. Final tende para amadeirado, uva, seca.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
375ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Beautiful deep amber in colour with a long lasting off-white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is sour and funky, lots of lemons, white grapes, apple skins, some peaches. The flavour is of brett, wood and dust - musty basement really, some good lemon citrus, tart white grapes, herbal and floral. Musty mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, bretty. Just a beautiful beer all around. Soft on the pallet but huge amounts of flavour. Nearly the perfect beer for me.
