This beer here, this beer I had @ the Grand Tasting... Compliments of whoever dropped it off at the center table, sheesh thanks whoever did that! tom10101 (6194) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Pours a hazy brown color with a very small head.
The aroma is huge and rich, briny and leathery with some light tart fruit, some musty basement, and some plum.
The flavor is rich and boozy with only a light but well integrated sourness. There are some leathery notes and some plum... but the wild yeast seems to have eaten up a lot of what causes Pannepot to be sweet as this one is really fairly dry.
A really fun beer.
Bottle (750 ml). 2008 vintage. Shared by verbalessence, thanks! Dark/amber brown with a small ring of beige foam and little to no lacing. Aroma is dusty and old with mushrooms, red fruits, wooden notes, oxidation, light vanilla and winey notes. Taste is also dusty with caramel, mushrooms, red fruits, oxidation notes, wooden notes, wine, vanilla and caramel. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. This is a very strange beast. There’s notes of the regular Pannepot, but they are buried under dust and the light sourness. The 10% alcohol is quite well hidden. Interesting.

Thanks koelschtrinker! A bit of a gusher. Pours super dark black/brown with a small tan head. The smell is dark fruit, cherry, dark malt. The taste is rich malt, dark fruit, a bit of slight tart sourness. The body is with nice carbonation. BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 10, 2014

Vineux comme un porto, fruits foncés en abondance, chocolat, légère acidité. Brillant liquide que j’ai gardé sur la table tout le long de la soirée. solidfunk (9189) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2013
This is a cool, velvety beast. Bretta is very subtle here, almost overpowered by the rest of the beer - and that’s saying a lot. Pours whiskey dark without head or lacing like the other pannepots. Had this after a taster served up by Chris at Ebenezer Kezar’s on a whim with pannepot reserva and pannepeut. Finishes with nice tang. 50belair (3670) - Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2013
On tap at Ebenezar’s Pub. Dark brown pour with an off white head. Sour brett aromas. Dry with dominating brett characteristics. Some boozy heat with spices and caramel malt notes. Average body and mouthfeel. AirForceHops (7538) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Draft @ Ebenezer’s in Lovell, ME. Muddy, dark brown color. Aromas of burnt sugar, plums, oak and off wine notes. Flavor does have the Quadruple flavors and base with the sour being real subtle. The wine barrel did some really interesting things to this flavor profile. Nice level of complex Barrel aging. Very good and maybe my favorite Sour Red / Brown brew, as I don’t really drink much of the style. AdamChandler (5113) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 25, 2013
So freaking stoked to finally be able to try this. Draft at Ebenezer’s. Same appearance as regular pannepot with dark black and amber hues on the edges Nose was sweet and sour with lactic tartness and fruitiness. Taste is otherworldly. this has taken a fantastic belgian quad and made it into a sour brown ale. No booziness, not too sweet but I could drink this all day. it’s a fantastic beer.
