3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Mikkeller Bar. This is a deep orange /golden looking one, cloudy in the glass with a bit islandy and sidesticking white top. It smells a bit like sløydsal/woodshop. Lots of fresh chopped wood, burned wood, sour apricots and power tools. There is also a brett touch here, light lemonish with cacti and more fresh wood. Sider perhaps? I really kinda like it. In the mouth this is soft oily and it’s a bit soft on the prickling bubbles. I really enjoy the flavors. So refreshing. I just had about 8 different types of sours, but this has to be the best one - by far! Semi dry I suppose you might call this cause it has some mild balancing sweetness left, some soft peachy traces, sour green apple zest and it’s just really packed with flavor. Would not mind revisiting this again and again. 10.01.2014

Growler From mikkeller bar. tasted august 2013. it got a bit too much of fire in the aroma and taste, alcohol is a bit too much present. Al tough the calvados is beautiful in its own but here it feels a bit like the poured a shot of calvados in to the beer instead of aging it with the beer. that said its one of the best beers ive had from boon, always fun with experimental beers.
