3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bb11/2015, takk pmgep (EU local swap 7.0). Earthy aroma of old citrus peel, early winter orchard, some dirt. Taste is very close to Dupont: dry hay, contained yeast esters, only with a late soapy note, maybe from the hops. Lively carbonation, distracting somewhat from the yeast’s flavour character. Finishes dry and to the point. Well done copycat hommage to the real deal, without adding anything in terms of local terroir.

Very hazy amber beer, good fluffy pale cream colour head. Palate is light and airy. Mild seltzer. Airy malts. Trace of lemon and herbs. Light bitterness before the semi dry finish. Pretty drinkable.

22/VIII/14 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 29/IV/16, batch: 39 (2014-931) Thanks to hackobock for the bottle!
Little cloudy orange beer, small irregular white head, unstable, dissipates immediately. Aroma: floral, lots of orange peel, honey, pretty oxidized. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very sour, dirty, infected, unpleasant vinegar sourness, white wine notes and some hay. Aftertaste: very sour, tannings, earthy, lemony, orange peel, very oxidized. Brett is not an excuse for infected beer... This is horrible.
