pours a deep deep brown with good tan head that stays around - aroma yeasty sour citrus . taste much better than aroma - a touch of sweet qucikly changes to a citrusy slight sourness with caramel undertones offset very well by teh fizzy carbonation generating a pleasant mouthfeel . long finish slightly acidic but nice . pretty good beer would have again . sarauckelman (550) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Sharp, fruity aroma, as of cranberries, and bit of old cheese. Color is chuck, dark chocolate; opaque. Warm in the mouth; disappears quickly. Sour and not too thick. magdalar (535) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2012
375ml bottle, from Erzbierschof. delnoche (516) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - APR 24, 2013
Pours a dark reddish-brown with a beige head.
Smells of Brett, balsamic vinegar, some feet, and a hint of wood beneath.
Tastes intriguing and exquisite; cherries, vanilla, caramel, cream. A heavy sweetness, part caramel and part fruit, with a creamy soft texture, with just a hint of tartness to make it real. This is wonderful!
12.7fl oz bottle poured into a Westmalle Trappist glass. Dark ruby/brown with fizzy tan head. Aroma is barnyard and slight candy sugar but later became red wine. Flavor is red wine, candy, copper. Rather sour due to the Brett. Medium carbonation, full body. Sour finish with a slight alcohol burn. Interesting beer, though not something I’d pick up again. Temptation (257) - - JAN 29, 2014
I like beer, not wine nor cider. When I buy a beer, I expect a beer, not wine nor cider. This stuff is a good example of how to spoil a beer: from the excellent Monk’s Elixir to this extravaganza. An acid quadruple??? My God, What’s this? A quadruple that tastes to red wine? Is there a red wine that tastes like a quadruple? Didn’t like at all.
