Surprisingly, I really enjoy this. Bottle to oversized tulip, straw golden with full white head. Nose is bright citrus and a little sweetness balanced by a slight funky tartness. A little bubble gum note paired with funky straw and grassiness. Flavor is tart, front, middle, and back. Starts with bright citrus and lemon peel and moves into a slight sweetness and finishes tart like a candy. It’s really a great beer and surprised me, as I’m not a sour pale ale kinda guy.

Funky, hoppy, tart with a nice bretty pineapple character, somewhat like Orval on steroids, this beer is absolutely amazing and gets better every time I try it again.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2014
Flaske, 375 ml. 2013 - batch 2. Gylden, stort knitrende hvidt skum. Very funky fella. Overmoden kernefrugt, acetone, træ og grøn harpiks. Sød fugtig kælder og bitre æbler. Grapefrugt. Og fyrnåle. Og og og. Meget kompleks og lækker med en laaang eftersmag. Wauv!

375 ml bottle, 2013/Batch 2. Served in a Prairie Teku glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with an inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and there’s a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like citrus (orange, lemon), tart fruit, oak, funk, and some hay. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some green apples, grassiness, peaches, and a bit of bready malt. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick with a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was a pretty good brew, I liked it. Definitely worth trying if you come across some, I know I’d like to pick some more up the next time I find it! $8.99 a bottle.

"Faaaaaantastic use of brett, oak, and hops...and a nice mix of hop varietals as well. Explodes with barnyard funk, oak, and juicy hop profile, Dry lingering tart finish. Loved every sip."
