Hints of a lot of things in the smell, but the sourness in the smell dominates all the way. Not my kind of beer.

Ausgewogen säuerlich-hopfiger Antrunk, in seiner Art mild aber bestimmt, vollmundig. Stimmig, erfrischend, bitter-trockenes Finish. 11/11/12/11//11

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
75cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Hazy amber colour, dense rocky off white head. Aroma of Brettanomyces, apple, bread, flowers, vanilla/oak. Flavour is light sweet, malty, vanilla, apple, Brettanomyces flavours, light sourness, bitter hoppy finish with a light sour twang. Light to medium bodied. This beers screams Orval. Great.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 75cl. Pours a great dark orange body with a big white head. Very soft aroma, barnyard, yeast, slightly funky, dried fruit. Taste is very subtle yet complex. Even though the body is pretty thin the barrel aging gives it avery warm character. Aftertaste is very dry; due to its great subtlety it unfortunately hangs around for quite too short a time.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ ACBF ’11. Brett takes over the op&top quite strongly, very dry, a bit thin, yet not overpowering, although more would like more noticeable hops.

Corked bottle. Golden color. Oak, apple and vinegar in the aroma. eather, citrus, oak, hints of red wine, sulphur and hopflashes in the flavor. Almost totally dry, only some fruity notes. Thin to medium bodied. Amazingly complex for such a moderate ABV beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75ml bottle shared with a friend in a snifer glass.
The appearance was blur with almost no foam.
The whole aroma war poor, but in general I am not so good with the nose.
Taste: sour, dry, almost white wine with some hops.
Overall: This might be a very special beer, but for sure its not my kind.

Had this one at the ACBF 2011. Golden, amber colored brew. Brett is in the aroma and flavor, but not very sour, mild flavored, some hops. Nice.
