RasmusOtt (1550) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2014
Tap @ Fermentoren. Pours hazy bright golden with an off white head. First off - this could easily be a gueuze die to the smell. Although it does have more grainy notes which points it towards a saison, especially when it gets a little heat. Anyhow: lots of sour and funky Brett, new leather, barnyard, vinegar, grainy wheat and some hay/straw. The taste is sour and has a fruity quality to it as well. I get gooseberries, vinegar, hay, green grapes and some barnyard. Also some moldy oak, a champagne(ish) quality and weak grainy notes here as well. Very nice "sour saison" .

Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours clear, light, golden yellow with a small, short lasting white head. Aroma is hay, sour, wheat and wheatish fruityness. Leather, dry champagne, slight vinegar and some unripe grapes. Taste has a nice grainy sourness, that is balanced by sweet wheat fruity flavors. Medium carb.

Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2014
Tap @ Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma presents with a fresh and clean acidity, tart apples, a bit of funk and a modest earthy tint. Taste is also quite clean and delicious, not overly complex but with a fresh sticky tartness. Not much carbonation but it remains fresh nonetheless. Quite long duration, as the tart palate sticks around. Quite nice!

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 Fruity tart, very light, some grassiness, the body is very light, but the yeast has some bubblegum esters, fits the beer quite nice.
