Big Poppy brought this one to Slosh Fest 2015 a couple weeks ago. Good times gents! Apparently this is infected Pannepot that they labeled as "wild." Clever. Pretty hard to score a mistake but we'll do the best we can here.

From a 750 into a snifter

APPEARANCE: Gushed upon opening. Luckily we did it near the sink. Pours a 3 finger medium-looser tan head with great retention. Deep sienna brown in color, opaque, with medium carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a ring only and leaves no real lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Tart cherry, dark fruit, plumbs and raisins, some spicy notes with caramel and brown sugar. Definitely tart but the pannepot base quad is still there. Actually rather surprisingly well put together.

TASTE: Tart cherry, dark fruit, raisins, and apple notes up front. Lots of green apple and sourness into the swallow with a bold and lingering finish of more tart cherries, dark fruit, plumbs and raisins, some brown sugar and spicy notes, with green apples and alcohol for sure. Actually pretty nice, though the green apples do come across slightly plastic-like.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy enough on the palate, goes down a bit prickly and finishes somewhat sticky. Some heat and tartness linger.

OVERALL: I think it would be challenging enough to do this on purpose, so I can see why there's never been a batch two. Seriously lucky shot in the dark here. This worked out surprisingly well, as the infection has added a layer of tart cherry sourness but hasn't eaten away everything that makes regular Pannepot such an enjoyable quad. Maybe my extremely low expectations going into it also affected my experience in a positive way. In any case, I would definitely take the non-infected version of this beer nine times out of then, but this is a fun mistake I was very happy to have a shot at. If you ever get a chance to try this one, dive in with an open mind. Thanks again Poppy!

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.

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.
