3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled sample shared with oakbluff. Gold in colour with haze and strong spritzy carbonation. Aromas are of Meyer lemon, wintergreen?, wet wood, and barnyard. Woody upfront in the mouth, along with funk, nettles, and a bit of iron. Moderately weighted body, with a good tart to sour balance. Not as refined as the Lente, but still very good.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle sample courtesy of "hannont". Colour...very cloudy golden straw with an overflowing white head. Nose...quite lemony but with a fair amount of barnyard and horse blanket, too. Imagine squeezing a lemon on a pile of hay covered horse pucky, and there you have it! Palate...whoa Nelly!! Did I just eat alum?! Man, this is an intensely tart beast! Ok. Now that the initial shock is over, the lemon comes back and makes a zesty appearance. There’s still funk and an array of sweet spice, all if which works very well together.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. 2011 vintage. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Soild, strong barnyard: baby manure, spice, and strained fruit. Medium copper color, 2-3 cm head, great lace. Rich and sharp fruit attacks the palate right away, blends and moderates very slowly. Tart and crisp. Great, refreshing stuff. Tingling on the tongue for long afterwards. Excellent.

Bottle from the brewery. Brilliant gold-orange color, with a big head. Lemony nose, light leather, grapefruit zest. Huge, vibrant flavors, fresh but complex. Grapefruit and lemon zest, light funk, nice bitterness, a fresh, very summery beer. Great.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 75 cl. Pours goldencopper in color with a foamy whitish head. Tart apples, funkiness, sour citrus fruityness, more funkiness and lemony notes in aroma. Nice. Later on also some barnyard and old cellar and leathery notes appear. Apples, fresh apples to be more exact, in taste. Also that nice lemony juicyness is present mixed with them funky barnyard notes. Light white wine grapes as well in taste. Hints of sour notes from citrus fruits in aftertaste and more of that funkiness too.
