4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 75 cl shared at Kaisla, Helsinki. Poured hazy orange in colour with fluffy well sized head. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Sour, yeast, soap and light parfume notes in aroma. Flavour is quite sour vinegar at first but evens out a bit later on. Perhaps some sour apple also in taste. Like a sour IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle at Délices & Caprices in Brussels (sampled in 2016). Served at a beer tasting session as an example of unintended fermentation that might go in a positive direction. Hazy yellow orange body with a small and fast disappearing white head. Aroma is funky with citric fruit, grass and coriander. Flavor is mild acidic, a bit Brett, citric fruit, sweet malt, grassy bitterness and floral. Medium body and funky aftertaste. Clearly infected, but in a nice way. Have something in common with funky Saisons like Orval or Fantome but with a strange combination of grassy hops, quite unique.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from belgiuminabox.com. Gusher
Pours fuzzy warm blonse, goos to big white head fades fast. Smell is bitter with some brett notes. Reminds of orval ( infection or ment too? Nice either way)
Taste is bitter, still very fresh (! ) tasting. Apples, bit of brett way less than the scent. Bit dry, some funk. I like this way more than expexted. Dont think ita infection, ita too good for that. Would be way better with less carbo though

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(75 cl bottle) Orange, cloudy, with a foamy off-white head with a green tinge. Caught me be by surprise as it gushed out of the bottle with a lot of pressure. Aroma of soapy citrus, bubblegum, fruity belgian yeast, Boskop apple peel, and a mustiness that reminds me of gueuze or lambic. Taste is less bitter than I had expected. I am also surprised by the light sourness, and by the fact that it does not disturb me. On the contrary, I am confused about a peppery heat, but that might also be the otherwise well-hidden alcohol. Lively carbonation. A strange, not totally balanced beer veering between greatness and disappointment. Anyway, that’s definitely better than mediocrity!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is quite strange. I get a lot of farmhouse and yeast character, as well as some light funk and some apple cider-like qualities. The flavor is also reminiscent of a cider, with some funk and brett-like notes. There is also a strong biscuit malt component and the beer is very dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A weird beer. Not too IPA like, but not bad overall.

75 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 18.03.2011
Aroma is fresh with soapy citrus, hops and some floral notes. Flavour has lots of soapy citrus and hops with fruits. Tripel meets IPA: the result is rather refreshing and nice!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. A cloudy medium to dark blonde beer, with a huge, frothy/fizzy, lightly lacing, fully lasting white head. The aroma is lightly malty (biscuits), moderately hoppy (flowers, resin), moderately yeasty (barnyard, dough), with notes of oranges and some urine-like off notes. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, dry, long finish with moderate bitterness. Not an IPA for sure, more like a funky Saison. Something between a funky Jolly Pumpkin and a rustic Fantome. Some strange notes in the aroma, but overall very good.
