brokensail (14558) - San Leandro, California, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Bottle @ La Palma Sour Fest 2015. I can’t believe I haven’t rated this. Thanks for sharing, Jeff. A little on the muddy side, but oh well. Really great funky, zesty, and perhaps even a touch spicy. Plenty of lemon and apple cider tang. Sort of a musty, slightly earthy funk, too. Nice acidity and sourness to the flavor. Definitely on the dry side. Just a touch of black pepper, chalk, and sweet malt. A classic.

ChtiBreizh (393) - Rennes, FRANCE - OCT 16, 2015
Beware, this is a kind of a beer experience. Pours hazy to cloudy orange with a thick creamy head, not the head of a gueuze or flanders at all. Aroma is complex with notes of peaches, grapefruit, hops, sour cherries, wood, straw, musty earth. Light sweet and of course tart, but in a balanced way. The finish is lingering bitter. Very smooth palate with thin carbonation. Alcohol integrated in all the flavours and hard to notice. If you like flanders red, gueuze and XX bitter then you might be happy with this one. Also for Orval aficionados. As drinkable but even more complex. Great idea to blend all these flavours and just a master achievment.

Rune (10006) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2015
750ml bottle, thanks to Alf for this beer gift. Slightly cloudy golden body. Dissipating, bubbly off-white head. Fruity tartness on the nose, dry. Refreshing tart fruity flavours, lemon, rhubarb and farmyard. Tart, sweet and dry ending. Medium bodied. Quite nice and refreshing in smaller amounts (shared with friends at IHR, Tromsø 18.09.2015).
