Draft @ Borefts 2012. Dark amber orange with a lambic head. Smell is sweet citrus lambic stuff with a lemony tang. Taste is rather comparable to a simple, mellow tad sweeter lambic, light wood, lemons, stale water, brett, light touch of hops. Flat - like a simple easy lambic - enjoyable stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. The aroma has brett, flowery hops, some fruit. Slightly hazy, copper coloured beer with a lasting, white head. The taste is very light sour and tart with some evolving bitterness. The brett is clearly prersent, but subtle and balanced. Nice one.
