Vignale (1981) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2014
Flaska från Etre Gourmete. Gyllenfärgad, ganska grumlig och lågt skum. Frisk syrlig, lätt geuzetouch på doften men lite sötare. Rejäl syra men också sötma, krispig, laktokaraktär, otroligt väl dold alkohol. Påminner mest om gula söta och syrliga stora russin, men syrligare, honung, äppelcidervinäger, citrus och lite funk. Annorlunda och riktigt trevlig utan att vara mitt i prick.

mutz (548) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2014
Oranje-amber kleurig, troebel, bezinksel. Veel schuim tijdens het inschenken dat binnen no time inzakt tot een dun laagje. Aroma van mout en vaag citrus. Smaakt citrus, azijnig.en ook mout als het bier opwarmt. Dunne smaak ondanks de 10%, weinig diepgang. Niet zo mijn smaak.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle. pale amber color. Cloudy, no head. Citrus, candied fruit and chloride in the aroma. Sour citrus flavor with some candied fruit and soft yeasty notes. Hints of banana sweets. Not flawless but very nice to drink.

esp0r (1890) - NORWAY - JUN 5, 2014
Sample at Haand 2014
Copper, very hazed, nice beige head. Smell of must, tart berries, good malts and a spicy touch of something that reminds of mustard. Moderate sweeet, quite funky and spicy, quite sour, ends with a moderate bitter finish. Quite interesting

Meilby (7210) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2014
Draught @ Haand Ølfestival 2014
Pours hazy deep golden with a short lasting off-white head. Aroma is sour with notes of malt, alcohol, vinegar and wheat. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium sour. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat.

Scopey (6197) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle. It pours clear deep orange with a massive, quickly dissipating head. The nose sweet, tangy, musty, spice, nut, plastic and vomit. The taste is crisp, sweet-sour, decent lactic acidity, lime, tangerine, light caramel, sherbet, floral, must, barnyard and wood with a dry, somewhat acidic finish. Medium body, prickly carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Hides abv well. I quite like the taste, but the nose is rather off-putting. So-so.

BlazerT (58) - POLAND - MAY 14, 2014
Teku glass. After opening, very lively carbonation. The beer alomstly exploaded out of the bottle. Hazy orange liquid with very big head, which dissapears very quickly, no lacing. Very nice funky aroma - lemon, apple juice, basement, oak and wine. You can smell lactic acid. Touch, but only touch of booze. The start is sour, kicking and sharp - quite funky. Definetely you can taste apple juice, in between some sweetness - honey The flavors are very tart, gastric, yeasty. The end in unbalanced - some malts, sour fruits. The aftertaste is pretty mild, dull and animal hair like. Despite high ABV (10%), no alcohol recognizable. Medium bodied and dry. Finish is semi-sweet. Very lively carbonation in the beggining. No alcohol warmth. The beer is really aliving, like caffeine kick. Maybe some say that it’s pretty unbalanced and chaotic. The Phi is very drinkable, you don’t feel any alcohol. Great for hot, summer days.

Draft. Golden orange pour with white head. Nice sour and funky fruit and oak aromas. Cheesy, funky and tart flavors.
