GlasgowTAD (1898) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2014
Wine and caramel on the aroma.
Golden in appearance, minimal to no head.
Sour and wine taste, with a touch of sweetness at some point.
Fairly lively with a light body, the colour reminded me of cognac.
Overall: Nice ale with a wine complexity to it, verging on a sweeter sour ale due to white wine aging.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 White pepper notes with a bready background, quite dry, but a slight acidic tartness, the taste is upfront and then a sudden blandness, which ends up with ’is this it’, something missing, but can’t put a word on it. AdamChandler (5181) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Dark toilet water brown. Moldy moscato and grape skins. Moldy cellar. Taste is ripened tree fruit, vanilla and tobacco. Walnuts and peanuts. More mold, acidic dry old grapes. Oak. but honestly just not too good. RichTheVillan (8248) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle 2 at Tool Tasting Night from Cotteridge Wines; clear amber pour with a thin light tan head, aroma has funk and wine, dry taste with a mild fruit some funky brett action and tangerine. marcus (10682) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours light copper with a decent beige head and a white wine aroma. There is a very oaky caramel malt flavor with a bitter but winey finish.

Bottle from Whole Foods in Davis, CA. Pours copper with a beige head. Aroma is grape. Med minus body. Flavor is oak and grape. A little yeast and stone fruit. Finishes quite oak. maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2014
UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 Bottle from Mane Liquor. I know this is getting on a bit now so figured I might as well see how it is. Pours hazy amber with a small, very sticky beige head. Nose is driven by what reminds me as funky Chardonnay - very buttery, grassy, tropical and bretty. I dig it. Taste shows big and ripe tropical fruits, mild stone fruit, a big dose of funk and some earthiness to round it out. Just a little aggressive which I enjoy. Goes down very easily. Tasty stuff. Kind of reminds of Mikkeller Wheat is the New Hops. Great beer Linnet (1908) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2014
Fruity, yeasty, hoppy, basement aromas, citrus, grapefruit, alcohol,
Hazy copper colour, medium off-white head, lacing.
Complex, soft bite, wine barrel aged, mid-sweet, alcohol, floral, bready.
Medium body, soft carbonation, warming finish.
Interesting, but not a cohesive whole. Marheb (6193) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Des notes grasses de brett et de vin blanc imprègne le liquide bien aéré. Buvabilité honnête.
czar (9430) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2014
pours clear medium dark golden, red tint, with a rocky off-white head, good retention and lacing. spicy fruitiness - oranges, orange crush *TM, other citrus, yellow fruits - some apricots, some stone fruits, drying bretts, phenols-plenty accentuated by barrel treatment - the rubber kind, dust, light woodsy notes that blend in well, golden candi, hint of caramel and maple, grass, bitter herbs, pinch of dirt. lively carbonation, light body, dry astringent bitter herbal-grassy-spicy finish. quite enjoyable as the non-ba version yet obviously quite different. very nice!
