(1L bottle) Pours a cloudy amber body with a medium white head. Aroma of a florist shop dominated by roses on Valentines Day. Flavor of floral hops, berries, citrus, honey, and gueuze-like sourness. Reminds me a lot of a rose beer I had while in Dali, China last year.

Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours muddy yellow with practically no head. Aroma is lemony, lightly tart. Good deal of oranges and floral notes. Low carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is soft, lightly fruity tart, oranges, wood and brett. Light dryness. Okay, but not terribly balanced.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle opened with quite a pop. Aromas of citrus, unknown spice and yeast? Hazy orange tinged gold color with a minimal white head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. A slightly brett-like sour for flavor with light spice, some yeast, and a lot of lighter fruits. I think I detect a little rose oil on the palate. Only a slight floral hoppiness. Reasonably dry. There’s a lot going on here. It’s very fresh and refreshing. A session ale for sure.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2009 Sampled from a 1L bottle, 2007
Poured near the end of the bottle so the yeast was most likely heavy, but I don’t mind since the yeast smelled and tasted fantastic. Nice soft funkiness in the nose, some sour and peppery basil/herb/spice aromas, the black pepper is certainly evident, and I pick up some lavendar floral scents and something resembling spiced berries and wood. Lightly tart flavor, tingling the tongue, then turning pasty while still remaining peppery all across the palate, start to finish. Even some grassiness in the finish as well. Good stuff. Weird beer and I like weird beer. 3.8
draft @ the brewery in 2009
heavily spiced, unkempt floral/soap character. soapy and messy. 3.4

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Overpriced ($17.99) bottle. Pours with a hazed golden body and a minimal bubbly white head that fades quickly. Aromas are tart and musty with notes of fruit (berries), honey, concord grapes, and saffron. Flavors of cork, bread, lactic acid, DMS, and just not entirely pleasant. Lightly herbal. Light carbonation. Odd finish.
