Bottle. Pours clear orange, very small bubbly head with a bit of lacing. Aroma is Brett, oak, green apple. Flavor is light plus sweet, Brett and apples, light plus funk, minimal bitterness. Medium body, low carbonation. Nice Brett character but the apples and sweetness were distractions.

Holmen1 (4125) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2016
Fra fat på ØST, Stavanger (del Ducato krankupp) med Ovesen jan-16: lett uklar gylden med svært kort skum. Sure bær og honning, og med en besk undertone jeg ikke liker. Tørr. Ikke så ren i smaken som Chrysopolis (som vi startet med). Lite humlebitterhet, men mer som rognebærsaft med alt for lite sukker.

Holmen2 (2464) - NORWAY - JAN 14, 2016
From tap at Øst at del Ducato tap takeover with JMD 14.01.16. Cloudy pale golden. Not much head or lacing. Sour lambic aroma with wite wine vinegar. Similar taste, with hints of wood. Medium bitterness of roganberries, lemon zest and pine lingering on. Dry mouthfeel.

Beer5000 (5470) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2015
330 ml bottle. Unclear yellow body with lively carbonation and a big, dense white head. Nice aroma of refreshing fruit, some citric fruit and pleasant mild funky Brett. Flavor is medium sweet malt with a slightly dryness, citric fruit, hint of lemon, funky Brett, a hint of wood. Fine balanced body and delicious aftertaste as well. A very nice and delicate beer that reminds me a lot of Orval, both refreshing and complex.

Gorgosh (394) - - DEC 5, 2015
Amerikaner må slå sig för bröstet och utropa sig själva till de extremaste ölproducenterna på planeten. I själva verket är det italienarna som toppar toklistan, men de gnuggar mest på och håller käft om det. I ljuset av det framstår den här som direkt blyg och kraftigt belgiskt besläktad. Pluspoäng för elegant flska.

nazzty (1156) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2015
Lovely brew with brettanomyces which makes it somewhat similar to Orval. Dry with a crispy freshness.

Wischylini (226) - Grimstad, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2015
Appearance Pours bright yellow, with lots of haziness, and a frothy white head
Aroma Lots of funky sour aromatics; bretty horseblankets and smoky hay, (deliciously) stale hops, acetic acid, green apples and lightly kilned grains
Taste Sour, mildly bitter, dry
Palate Light but not thin, champagne-like fizziness
Overall An incredible saison, with lots of sour beer aromatics and a refreshing palate. Not only one of the best saisons I’ve had, but actually one of the best beers overall
