4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2013 Better than jolly pumpkin bam by a long shot in my opinion, drank them next to eachother at backcountry. More brett funk and barnyard, nice fruit esters in back. Excited to age a few bottles and see what happens

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden light amber, slight hazy. Pretty interesting nose. Some medicinal, penicillan, there, wheaty malts, rubber, bit old woody, but not all that uninviting. Med light bodied, some soft acidity, cleansing finish. Soft, watery old barrels, wheaty malty, citrus, some ginger even. Interesting. Bit thin textured, and with a citrus... lemony fruityness, this is quite refreshing. Interesting, and with a lot of different types of flavours (some say complex). Getting peat in the burps now. Don’t like the slight wateryness, but overall real interesting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(375ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Mar 21 2015) Pours very cloudy dark gold with tiny white head and no lace. Aroma lactic and funky sourness with peach skin, wet earth, a little bitter. Flavour of sour peach, lactic, light lemon, orange juice, a little pine and bitterness, peach skin in the aftertaste which is dry and bitter with woody quality. A little watery with very light carb. Definitely on the sour side for a saison with some white wine type characteristics, a little thinner than ideal but pretty interesting and quite drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Couleur dorée avec un col assez stable. Aromes assez complexes de fruits comme la peche et les agrumes, d’épices, de céréales, une bonne acidité du au Brett. Une petite ressemblance avec du vin blanc. Une excellente saison sure, une des meilleure!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fra flaske på Mandag i annen, Cardinal mars-15: lett uklar gylden med kort bruseskum, og den må "drikkes mens deet bruser" som det het om Nyco. Og like sur. Kommer seg etter det innledende sjokket. Garantert å fjerne eventuell plaque. Heftig.
