COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Back in 2008, Urbain had the idea to age some Pannepot on wild yeast strains. As this was yet another of his crazy experiments, the risk was calculated and minimalized to an amount of 450 litres of Pannepot that was used on 2 barrels only. French red wine oak barrels were used were from Chateau Tour Baladoz, a superb Saint Emilion Grand Cru. Urbain used these barrels before to age Earthmonk and he has huge faith in the owner of the vineyard. After 2 years of peaceful aging, Alex from Brasserie 4:20 in Rome came by, and he did not want to leave without buying at least one barrel of beer at the brewery. Urbain cried when he had to prepare one of his barrels for shipment. Then he decided to bottle the other barrel, so he could start all over again.

Straight dark brown pour- almost black with a beautiful off white head. The aroma is all the delectable goodness of Pannepot with tart horsepen, some acetic acid, and farmy funk. Don’t be fooled by the sour aspects- the malt character is massive. Raisin, fig, plum, and huge notes of red grapes prevail. Some oak tannins make their way in as well. Simply exquisite. The flavor is tart dark fruit, doughy funk, and huge earth. The oak tannins are very prevalent The palate is thick, rich, pillowy in its effervescence, and finishes sticky and savory. Thanks Urbain!

Much thanks to OteyJ Pours a Dark brown with a light beige head. aroma is chock full of farmhouse spice, dark fruit, a touch of acetic acid, molasses, There is a touch of funky barnyard that melds well with the belgian farmhouse spices. Flutter of grape soda and oak. Flavor is rich, boozy, and tight concentration. oaky, intensely earthy, loam soil, dry brett throughout, most prevalent on the finish. Nice barrel notes, vanilla, some light fruitiness. Fucking great.

Bottle shared by Sliffy. Dirty reddish brown pour with a light tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, sweet malt, light wood and vinous characteristics. Flavors of sweet boozey fruits, soft tannins, light woody dryness. Sturdy body, sweet with interlacing fruitness/dryness, malty/dry/fruity finish...soft sourness throughout, the subtlety is superb.
