De Dolle debuted this special beer at the Zythos Beer Festival in Belgium. It was noted that they only made 5 kegs of 50 litres each and no bottles. It is noted that the beer was brewed without hops.

The beer poured a deep redish brown color with a 1/2 thick off white head. Right off the bat I had my doubts about this being a porter and the aroma was a dead giveaway that this was something else, something special. The nose was sour, had some lactic acid notes. The taste was sour, had fruity notes like cherry and orange along with some tasty wood notes. As the beer warmed it opened up a bit and provided a bit of depth. Overall my favorite beer at Zythos and I sure hope this makes it to bottles in the future as this is a wonderful beer.
