I'm reviewing the tap version because I thought it was better than the bottle.

This beer obviously looks like regular Pannepot. Rich dark color and a faint burgundy hue when put up to the light.

It has a very clean bretty funk too it. Very inviting for a wild beer.

Taste is perfectly executed. Brett is paired with the dark fruit and sweetness from Pannepot. There's a welcoming tartness as well. Something I didn't pick up so much from the bottled version. This beer is even better on tap. (496 characters)

Had this on tap last night while visiting Ebenezer's for the first time. 10z pour into a tulip glass

A: Thin, brown pour with no head or lacing. Looks like flat Coke. The only place where this beer doesn't shine

S: Dark fruit, cherry, some funk and smokiness. Seemed like a lot of aromas, I just couldn't quite pick them all out

T: Similar to the nose, but there seemed to be a grape flavor as well. Might have been my mind playing tricks on me. Started with a roasted malt flavor, then to the fruit, followed by some smoke/cooking chocolate

M: Creamy, yet also bubbly. Medium, bordering on full bodied

D: I can best describe this as a cross between a dry stout, a belgian strong dark and a toned down lambic. This was a great after dinner beer which I sipped slowly. Alcohol is basically non-present. Superb beer (818 characters)

237th Review
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! (700 characters)

Shared a bottle with some fellow BAs. This was one nice treat!

A - Deep mahogany/brown body. Thick foamy tan head.

S - Dark fruits, brown sugar, spice cookie, with a noticeable Brett/sour funk.

T - Very smooth and complex sour Belgian Quad. All the right flavors are there. Very malty, sweet, funky and sour.

M - Creamy, bubbly on the tongue. Sour finish.

D - Excellent beer. Wish we had more than one bottle. I would love to try this on tap. (447 characters)

This one I was very excited for and am greatful to have gotten the chance to try it. Pours a muddy, murky brown with a thin tan head that lasted throughout the beer. It smelled of Bretty funk and musty grapes, dark fruit, toffee, and a bit of booze. The taste was quite similar a bit more in the way of the dark fruit and brown sugar realm and less so of the funky musty flavors. A bit of acidity, but just a touch. Also there was a hint of a Metalic taste some warming alcohol at the end. There was a nice medium bodied feel to it and slightyl less carbonation than I was expecting but thought that was a good thing. In the end I thought of it like some sort of a Pannepot/Orval hybrid. I could certainly drink a few more if I ever got the chance. (748 characters)

Big bottle of 08...small head and cola brown color. Rich aroma of brett, coca-cola, herbal spices, and strangeness. I really like this but I like unique brews. Not easy to detect 2 years of aging in a barrel, but no worries. Nice sourness, funkiness, some noticeable alcohol but very interesting and fun! (304 characters)

I'm just enjoying a whole bottle of this beer. The bottle looks great, the beer in the glass also. Deep black, creamy head. Dry-malty aroma. Starts strong-malty, a bit alcoholic, rusty, dry. Some fruity notes of grapes and raisins. Also a little bit smoky. Intense finish, frutiy again, a bit like a good dry red wine. Gets better with every sip. Very drinkable. A great brew! (376 characters)
