3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled @ The Hague Tasting, small sample. Horseblanket, tart, hint of strawberry. Lactic acid. Quite nice sour ale, but I didnt expect it to be this high on average rating. Nicely balanced, but lacks a bit complexity.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ The No Creepy Country Ticks Tasting, courtesy of JulienHuxely. Pours a clear headless golden beer with slight carbonation going on in the glass. Aroma is light sour, bretty, funky and has some fresh oak influences in there as well. Flavor is light sour, woody and fruity. Light red fruits detected as well as some vineous characters. Great drinkability and refreshing, yet not all too impressive.
