Rustyham (1800) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2010
beautiful shiny golden amber color, smell is sour and slightly salty, like brine. Flavor is sweet but very smooth- hardly sour. Nice fizzy sting in the palate. Very drinkable. I could actually see myself going into a brewpub after working the fields in Belgium and ordering a few glasses of this. Bottle from Knightly Spirits, Orlando.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2010
Bottled. Pours out in a shady orange colour with a small bubbly white head. Horse-blanket, stable, blonde grapefruit red grapes and wood in the aroma. Medium-bodied with acidic notes of lemon, brett, mild grapefruit and mild white pepper. Solid mouthfeel. Brett, grapefruit-peels and mild pepper in the finish. Not complex but tasty.
