4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle looks again wonderful. Beer in the glass deep orange-golden, very zippy, nice head. Sourish aroma. Starts much more sour than the Lente, but not too much. Fine fruity notes of not too ripe apricotes, lemon. Wonderful balanced. Finish still sourish, with a salty touch. Finish also well balanced, complex sourish, intense aftertaste. Again a masterpiece!

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
75cl Bottle at WWT. Gusher. Hazy golden orange, white head. Aroma is tart, funky, dank, dung. Flavour is sour, acid, dung, very funky, light fruity, more sour in the finish. Light bodied. Unpleasant and way too sour for my taste. Reading the other ratings I can only conclude that people are nuts, and I’m the only sane person in this world.

Hazy orange with a white head. This was a very nice one, not extremely sour and tart but balanced and really drinkable. Apples, some citrus, funk, wood and grape. Dry finish. Nice craftsmanship!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle @ RBNAG-11. Hazy orange body with a big off-white head. Nice fruity and acidic aroma, but milder than Lente. Flavor is tart and fruity acidic with plenty of barnyard funk, dryer than Lente. Quite similar to Lente, but with less aroma and a dryer flavor it becomes a bit less balanced and more challenging. Still very great stuff here.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle supplied by myself. The pour’s deep hazy orange with a medium pillowy white head. Nice brett through the nose. Old cobweb-covered wood. A bit of marshmallow. Light white grape. Slightly brash. Notes of granny smith apple. The taste has similarly musty flavors. Like eating an attic. Rich brett with bright shocks of tart lemon. Key lime pie. Such expressive wild yeast. Nice floral finish. Mild creamy sweetness. Light body. Wonderful vitality. Moderate carbonation. Overall, fantastic.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 Bottle shared by Greg, if I remember correctly. The packaging is very nice, which is not very important. The beer pours an opaque orange. The aroma is powerful with yeast and acid, and just from the aroma, you know this is going to satisfy any sour craving, and it does not disappoint. Intense sour flavor, with some citrus, wild yeast, and wheat. There is a dry, earthy finish. This is an excellent beer, and fully deserving of a 5.0 rating.
