THANKS for sharing RB people! Sampled draft as Berghoeve Mei Bock @ Arendsnest during Carnivale Brettanomyces 2016! Orange, little white head. Nose is dirty cobwebs & spoiled medicine, bad aspirin, old medicine cabinet. Taste is nasty old paper, cabbage, thin spoiled medicine. Awful paper & bad medicine body. Really didn’t like this one, far too heavy on unpleasant notes.

Bottle at home. Aroma is malt, bread, sweet ripe fruits, some caramel, sugary. Flavour is moderate to medium sugary sweetness. Body is medium. While others ratings mention a nasty gusher, my bottle was actually undercarbonated. Not good, dull sugary malty ripe fruity Maibock.
