Bottle. Murky almost completely black color, thick fluffy brown head, delicate lacing. Aroma of dusty and funky red grapes, chocolate bars. Taste is funky and slightly sour dark milk chocolate, port wine, coffee. Nice.

50 cl. Meilleure avant 2016. Une robe noire et sa tête brune bien montée. Une large dentelle sur la paroi de ma tulipe. À travers des parfums chocolatés, des effluves de bretts qui se lovent autour de vapeurs fruitées transportées par le tonneau de Brunello. Des odeurs de prunes et/ou de mélasse cuite se font aussi sentir. Sur les papilles, des saveurs de bretts qui, pour moi, se marient plus ou moins harmonieusement aux malts noircis et aux saveurs apportées par le fût de vin gouge. En bouche, les levures sauvages et l’enfûtage semblent avoir légrement altérer le corps et la texture du liquide. La finale est une suite logique de l’effet des flaveurs: les bretts et les tannins bien sentis me font légrement grimacer et me laisse passablement perplexe.

rodenbach99 (4532) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2013
Bouteille de 500ml. Bière brune foncée avec une mousse brune crémeuse. Le premier nez est plein de brett, de vin rouge, ensuite viennent des notes de chocolat, de café et fruits secs. La bouche est acide, un peu bizarre, tannique, les tanins sont trop présents pour moi, on frôle l’astringence, on croirait licher une pelure de banane. Avec le temps et les gorgées le tout s’apaise, mais je ne suis toujours pas convaincu d’aimer ça.

Habanero (4512) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - APR 10, 2013
On tap. Pours deep brown with a medium sized, off-white head. Aroma of brett, dark malt, caramel, vanilla, wood and plum + red berries. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry with some bitterness. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft CO2. A nice one. ★★★★

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - APR 5, 2013
Black liquid with a huge tan head. Aroma is fruity and sour. Brettanomyces you said? Took me by suprise actually. Taste is also brett-dominated at first. While the roasty flavours comes out towards the finish. Intense chocolate in the aftertaste. Interesting one, that really grew on me from sip to sip.

Tap at Mikkeller and friends. Black with a huge and dense Brown head. Aroma is dominated by brett, with some notes of fruit and herbs. The Brett is all over the flavor aswell, the stout character comes through in the finish. Roasted bitterness and coffee. Along with this is an acidic side note leading my thoughts towards Wild fermentation. Crazy beer, but not my style

Koelschtrinker (19433) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 2, 2013
Leicht säuerlicher Malzantrunk mit deutlichen Noten der Fasslagerung. Intensiv malzig, die Säuerlichkeit ist aber intensiver. Rund, wenig alkoholisch. Trockener Abgang mit weinartigen Aromen. 9/11/11/12/10//10

Bottle courtesy of Dan. Pours a slightly reddish deep brown with a little head. Aroma is great - Orval-esque bretty fun, a little Rodenbach too, red berries, tart cherries and raspberries, some blackberries and red wine. Touches of chocolate, too. Taste is cracking too: tart berries, red wine, a little vanilla/oak, milk, some balsamic and a roast malt character too. Sour, dry, lingering tartness. Very nice indeed, I really like this one.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - APR 1, 2013
Bottle at home. Deep reddish brown, thick beige bubbly head with good lacing. Big woody brett, tart cherries, definite sourness, soft oaky vinous spice on the nose. Surprisingly dry, predominant flavours of oak, vinous cherry fruits, tart berry and a pretty austere roast backbone. Medium body, pretty well-carbonated. Lightly tart, lightly bitter on the finish. Dry, interesting, not what I was expecting!
