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!

This was the 2007 version poured at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Poured into a tasting tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy mahogany with a finger of tan head that fades to a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Sweet with some dark fruit and caramel notes. I'm also getting some vanilla and mild alcohol warmth. Not getting too much from the wild yeast, maybe it cut the sweetness a tad.

Taste: This one retains the maltiness of the original with some caramel and vanilla notes. Getting some dark fruit and a very mild tartness. The finish is slightly bitter and sweet. I'm having a hard time describing the actual difference the wild yeast made, but they were there and I enjoyed them. I guess I need a more sophisticated palate.

Mouthfeel: The body is syrupy with medium carbonation and a super dry finish. I think the extra dryness comes from the wild yeast.

Overall: This is a very nice beer. The finish just sucks the moisture out of your mouth. The wild yeast seems to have lightened things up a bit and added a tart note, but this is not a sour beer by any means. Very good.

750 poured into a Cantillon shaker glass
Thanks to Bluebetty for getting this rarity

A-- poured a dark, muddled brown color. Half a finger light brown head that went to a solid looking collar. Nothing too out of this world.

S-- Love the nose. Figs, raisins, rum port, sherry, chocolate, wood and touches of sourness and funk. Spent a solid 5 minutes smelling this as just the combo of sour and quad was a bit much to take at the time.

T-- Strange as heck taste. Like soured fennel somebody else remarked. just did not mesh with the nose. Like muddled cask wine left to sour and become medicine. Nose was gone in the taste.

M-- low carbonation and medium feel. Slight bits of oak and sourness in the finish but the good stuff was pretty much gone. More of a herbal medicinal feel in the mouth.

O-- Loved the nose and hated the rest. 2 oz was more than enough. Thrilled to try and experience but that was a strange beer.
