3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange body with a miniscule white head and little signs of carbonation. Aroma is massive tones of bretty horseblanket, stable and sweaty barnyard funk, red berries, lemon, straw and hints of citric peel and lactic tartness. Taste is barnyard funk, horseblanket, tart citric tones, lactic sour notes, hay and hints of sweet cereals and unripe red berries in the back. Light to medium body, soft to non-present carbonation. A truly sour beer in the literal sense of the word, with loads of bretty goodness thrown in the mix. The lack of carbonation hampers the experience a bit, but this is still a very good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle. Pours out a light amber shade with a shallow covering of bubbles. Aroma is cider apple, straw. Taste is fairly juicy and still quite young tasting. Definitely stiller and less carbonated than I would expect. Oak barrel coming through in the finish. This one really seemed to offer something different with each pour.

Flaska från SB. Äppekjuicefärgad, ingen kolsyra. Citrus, gröna omgona syrliga äpplen, trä och funk i doft och smak. Väldigt drickbar med balanserad syra, lätt sötma och stramt syrlig i munnen, lätt men påtaglig beska med grapedrag. Riktigt gott.

Flaske, 375 ml. 2013 vintage. Næsten klar ravgylden. Farmhouse funk, træ, citron. Vinøs. Sur-sød balance. Men desværre helt flad i karboneringen.

Bottle split with Andy at BBH. Poured light hazy golden, no head with light carbonation. Aromas and flavor are very lemonade funk forward with some other minerals, wet wood, horseblanket and lemon skins. Easy going and more refreshing than normal doesjel. Still has a minimal bitter and drying finish. Good stuff.
