2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bière intéressante: on sent bien l’acidité, on s’approche aussi d’une gueuze.
Malheureusement je n’aime pas trop ce type de bière même si l’étiquette est trop belle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At Zythos Beer Festival. Hazy golden/orange with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of leathery brettanomyces, perfumy hops, floral/herbal notes, oak and winey notes. Taste is hoppy too and dominated by brettanomyces, herbal/floral note, a good malt backbone and nice lemony finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry leathery finish. Good wild Belgian Ale. Very tasty and quenching.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 (backlog ZBF 2013, ZO 28). On draught, courtesy of brewer. 2nd festival day, skimpier notes: impressive green apple sourness, along with its bretty peel, in the aroma returns as natural fruity, woody acidity in the taste, on a very dry palate. Slightly sulphuric notes join a maltier body as it warms, leaving a refreshing astringent finish. Very well-composed, almost time-clocked yet light nouvelle vague BE brew. Looking forward to revisit bottled soon (bottle BAB 2014). // Revisited 07/2014 during World Cup Final: truly stellar, new world sour with a very impressively balanced composition. Explosive aroma, as citric and heavy-aromatic as the best Cantillon, only infused with an almost dessert wine fruitiness: apricot, reine-claude compote. Excellently dry, astringent, with grapefruit zest bitterness. Elegant, but weaker, oaked dry finish. World class.
