Opened at TN whales tasting 3/16/2013. Thanks to Andy for opening this.

Body is a dark woody brown with islands of coffee colored head.

Tangy funk on the nose, bananas, candied apple, brown sugar, hints of tartness and funk.

Taste is pretty odd, bananas and sugary malt as you'd expect, apple, but also mild funk and hints of vinegar and brett. A bit of cardboard flavor too.

Mouthfeel is a little thin, not terrible but it seems like the bug didn't operate entirely according to plan.

This is a good beer but odd, tastes like a great and complex quad with just a touch of sour and funk. Doesn't taste infected exactly, but there are two different things going on and they're not very well integrated. Still enjoyable but not what it was intended to be I would guess.

7.3/10

Bottle: Poured a dark cloudy brown color ale with a huge foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma of light tart notes with some fruity ester and dry fruits notes is really nice. Taste is a great mix between some light tart notes with some oak and vinous notes that are well balanced against some fruity ester with dry fruit and a solid malt backbone. Body is full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very interesting beer with loads of complexity while retaining a very good level of drinkability.

First beer of the day at Ebenezer's last weekend. Had a small taste of this at a previous Ebenezer's venture but got a proper pour this time and enjoyed it much more.

Poured into an Ebenezer's glass looking much like the other Pannepi. Dark brown body with a beige head that retains quite well, eventually reducing down a partial cap near the end. A bit of lace left.

Bretty funkiness is prominent in the scent, but the intense chocolate/yeast/dark fruit of the base beer shine through and meld well.

Like the scent, a good balance and melding of flavors. Has all the yeast, dark cherries, red wine notes, chocolate and leather of Pannepot, with a good dose of brett, light fruity notes and oak brought on by the Wild.

Very smooth mouthfeel, exceptionally drinkable and light for 10%.

Quite a complex beast, easy drinking, could've easily drank 2 glasses of this. 2006 Pannepot still regins supreme in my eyes but this was one of the better variations I've had.

Enjoyed on tap at Ebenezer's pub. Expensive glass, worth having a masterful blend of cherry and wild yeast. An imperial stout aroma. Only a Little head on black coca-cola looking body. Very tasty and drinkable, and leaving some taste on my palate. Goldilocks not too sour and a little sweet.Very drinkable for this level of abv, which did not show its boozy side.

I had this beer at the CBC festival in Kopenhagen in may this year. The Struise brewers were there with 30 beers on tap. What a success they had. Poured in the CBC snifter.

The Pannepot wild was on my want list for quit a time. Very tasty quad with a bit of sourness because of the wild yeasts. Nice dark fluid and a fairly decent head.

On-tap at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012
Poured in a CBC taster
Vintage: 2007

Enjoyed on 11 May 2012

A: Medium brown. Single (tan) fingernail head.

S: Like the other Pannepots, this smells of dark dried fruit, spice, and hint of funk. Not as bold as the others in smell, but inviting nonetheless.

T: Mostly dark fruit with touch of vanilla, oak, and spice. Mild tartness here, but not quite what I was expecting (not in a bad way though). Hint of sweetness towards the end. Decently complex, all things considered.

M: Medium/full bodied with appropriate carbonation.

O: A fun twist on an old classic. Thanks for bringing this treat to Copenhagen in your 30-tap unit, Urbain!

On tap at The Lion's Pride.
Came to the table a solid brown/black color with a thin tan head that slowly dissipates but never leaves. Smells of oak, vanilla, caramel, dark fruits, dark sugars, a little tart, and a little funk. The flavor follows the nose quite well but adds a heavy tart cherry, chocolate and raisin flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet sugary tart mouthfeel. This is a damn fine beer, in fact my favorite from the night. The funk is restrained and mixed very well with the quad that is underneath!
