Sparf (269) - SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2013
Syrligt parfymaktig arom. ven jsttoner och aning stall men med en mustig jordighet. Mrkt brun och disig brygd med ltt rdaktiga reflexer. Smaken har en krv bitterhet kombinerat med en vlrostad syra. Fattoner och en lite vins avrundning. Tmligen tunn kropp och en champagneartad kolsyra. Torr och relativt korteftersmak. P det hela taget en unik l!

mathieuc (3868) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2013 Bottle shared by czar, thanks! Pours a muddy brown with a big white head. First whiff is soapy, well, all of them are. Quite strange but it does not deter me from digging further. Nice oaky/fruity flavors, feeling winey almost. Some spices and flowers also make an appearance, might be what I was associating with soap. Enjoyable, I should re-rate it sometime in the future.

extra @ cascade + upright tasting sessions. big gush. unclear brown with a frothy abnormal off-white had, good retention and lacing. very soapy and perfumy, bretty, caramel, pepper, spices, faint belgiumness and wineyness. over-bubbly, light body, short tannic and grassy-herbal-spicy finish. very unique and enjoyable but not without flaws..

tom10101 (5908) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by czar, thanks! Small gusher. Brown with a huge off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of wood at first followed by red wine, red fruits, light caramel/chocolate notes and light vinegar. Taste is slightly sweet and sour with oak, red fruits, light winey notes and light caramel/chocolate again. Medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly winey mouthfeel. Ok Sour brown. Well balanced. Nowhere near Rodenbach in termes of deepness, but still really interesting.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
750 ml bottle shared with Tom and chums around bonfire. Can hardly make out anything I wrote down on it. Pours a veiled brown with a short lived beige head. Aroma is milk chocolate, caramel, bretts. Flavor is fruit concentrate. Things I seriously cannot decipher. Finish is unripe fruit, tartness, soap. Light body, average carbonation.

RexTalionis (3705) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2013 Bottle 75 cl. Pours dark brown in color with a massive tan head. Wooden barrels, light vinegar, chocolate and sour berries in aroma. Just a bit sour in taste, some metallic notes (these were only in the beginning here, apparently a bit too cold) and red berries in taste at first. Light nutty and chocolate notes in taste as well. A bit of tartness, mellows out to more a pleasant drink after some airing. Light sour and nutty chocolate notes in aftertaste. This is a brew that grows on you after awhile.
