On draught at Roscoe’s for Belgian Beer Summit. Clear deep golden color. Aroma is lactic sour, strawberry, floral yeast, and oak. Taste is oak, sweet black cherry, floral spice, and funky basement sourness. A good hybrid of farmhouse, sour, and oak aging.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very hazy, pale. Appearance of a Weizen. Foam wasn’t too much but stayed there all the time. Smell of cider. Heavily sour, kind of lambic taste with a pleaseant bitterness. Got some bread note in the aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch 9, 330 ml bottle into a wine glass. Vintage unknown but it was purchased a few months ago and the swing top label is notched at 15. Pours a hazy orange with a finger of soft tan foam. Nose is stone fruits, brett funk, yeast, white wine, and some vanilla oak. Taste is very fruity with layers of grass, oak, and wine barrel. Finishes dry, musky and slightly cheesy. Clean and crisp with a coating mouth feel. This isn’t quite up there with the HF barreled saisons but this is a really awesome shelf beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Nesodden. Huge four finger off-white head which settles quickly. Cloudy pale yellow/orange body. Aroma is spicy and stingy. I sense caramel malt, salt, cooked vegetables, grass, coriander root and pear. Reminds me of a geuze. Sour on the tongue at first, with a bitter/sweet aftertaste.
