3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 0,75l at Restaurant Akkurat in Stockholm. From bottle. Pours golden amber, small frothy white head that diminishes very quickly down to a very small lacing. Very strong and immediate hit of aroma from pouring of grapefruit & orange, apple cider vinegar. Extremely fresh on the tongue, immediate acidic bite of grapefruit, vinegar with end taste of lemon. Medium bodied, good natural carbonation. Had some rough Lambic beers before, but this one is impressive. Respect to the process. I get it now..

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
May 4, 2012 - with blankboy, garthicus, gregclow, jercraigs & mabel. 750ml green bottle c/o blankboy. Very hazy orange with a smallish frothy off-white head (3+). Smells awesome - lanolin, lemon, burnt rubber - taste "jowzzzzzah!" - massively sour, ’nuff said (my words to the room, gasping, "I think this bottle’s off - give it to me!"). Light body, sticky, acidic, lively - lovely; frackin’ amazing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from BVS, Belgium. It pours cloudy golden yellow, with a thick, foamy white head. The nose is floral, tangerine, orange, strawberry, light spice, brett and cherry tunes (throat lozenge). The taste is lemon, grapefruit, pithy tangerine, tangy orange, barnyard, floral and wood, with a dry, sour finish. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. Flavoursome and well balanced. Pretty damn delicious!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, shared with Dave. Lively hazy golden pour capped by a bubbly, exuberant white head. Aroma is sour, apple-ish and grapefruity nuances, and lightly funky. Tart/sour grapefruit juice entry, green apple skins, but with some underlying balancing sweetness like white grapes and maybe even a bit of honey. Some lactic acidity. Dry, tart finish. Yes, I could drink a LOT of this. So good!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl Bottle at Kafé België. Hazy golden orange colour, white head. Aroma of sour lemons, funk, cellar, damp, more citrus. Flavour is sour at first, lemons, grapefruits, funk, a little earth, musty, but also zesty, tart-bitter finish. Light-bodied. Not bad, bordering on too sour for me, but fortunately just right.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From bottle. Pours cloudy golden amber, frothy white head dies down to a fine lace. Big aromas of freshly squeezed grapefruit & orange, apple cider vinegar, pepper, farmyard funk. This is like suppin’ on a glass of funky fresh grapefruit. Real fresh on the tongue, great clean acid bite of grapefruit, vinegar, lemon, soured apple. Medium bodied, good natural carbonation with the balanced malt giving a nice sweet touch. Finish is long, dry, bitter, sour, refreshing.
