2011 bottle that I split with scotchzi. Pours a perfect amber-brown-tan. Healthy amount of light tan head with very sticky lacing. Aroma is a funky butterscotch, toffee, earthy. Really great smell. Taste is more funky than the aroma; but otherwise follows the smell. Great carbonation lends to the bubbly mouthfeel. Light in body, but it works very very well for this beer. Definitely looking forward to the variants I have of this.

Cuivrée trouble, bonne mousse. Nez levuré, brett et fruits jaunes. Gout sur les bretts, levures, fruits jaunes confits, note sucre caramel, houblon, bien acidulé et amer. Bon corp. Fin amere sur les bretts.

DarkMagus (549) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 24, 2017
Pours a hazy brown color with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma of Brett funk, sweet candy sugar, toasty malt, and some light floral notes. Heavy sweet malt flavors with a bit of candy sugar, figs, dates, Brettanomyces funk, floral spiciness, and a hint of bitterness. Well carbonated and full bodied mouthfeel. Nice astringent finish. Pretty classic!

Easily misted, dark golden beer, very good foam. Aroma: old hay, strawberries, spices, herbs, malt, flowers. Taste: very dry, malt with pear, bitter, slightly chalky, light acidity, white wine, warming, slightly citrus and vodka. Not bad.

On tap at Mikkeller Berlin. The Brett makes this really great. Aroma is very spicy, a bit funky, something mushroomy, sweet Candi sugar; nice complexity, lots of aromas. Flavour is also somewhat funky, nice maltiness, medium sweet, some acidity, spicy, refreshing. Brilliant!

Aroma: much sweeter than expected; candy and a little malt; Appearance: hazy amber pour with thin white head that lingers; Taste: maltiness a bit too much; results in an odd, unpleasant finish; Palate: heavy body with long, malty finish; Overall: would not get again.
