3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
At a tasting, thanks eyes_wide_shut and YK23, no head, a little deep hazy orange colour, flavour of apple, apricot, wood amd mustiness, feels cidery, flavour of white fruit, apples and some white wine, quite bitter and almost no sourness, unbalanced. Aroma is really complex but the flavour a real letdown.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 First off, the color is nowhere near copper, more an orangeish yellowish deal. Nose is a bit too alcohol-forward for my liking but has nice notes of pear, lemon zest, and brett barnyard character. Taste is the same, though a bit on the sweet side, resembles a not-hoppy tripel with an apple characteristic and lots of spice notes. Carbonation is very lively, like champagne. A fascinating and delightful beer.

Bretty aroma with some fruitiness (apples and more), light vinegar notes, yeast, floral notes and a bit of malt. Yeasty flavor, a bit funky, with light sweetness, faint sourish notes and a slightly bitter finish. Medium-bodied with aggressive carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. It pours an unclear, golden-orange body and a minimal-sized off-white head. The aroma is rather sweetish, with a touch of lemon and orange. canned pears and some hay. Some peppery hints too. It’s a tad carbonated for my likings, with a dry, full-bodied palate. Pale malt hints in the flavor, with peaches, canned pears, some sugary hints and a faint touch of black pepper. Long finish. Not very sour this one, it feels sweet without being it, and in general tastes quite nice. But nothing extraordinary going on. 130814
