2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a 33 cl bottle, bottled half a year ago. Very serious gusher: the beer just erupted violently from the neck upon opening. Very thick, rocky, moussy, off-white head thinning after a while but remaining stable, colour hazy orange blonde with vivid fizz and a ’fog’ of minute yeast particles suspended throughout the liquid; it becomes murky and cloudy with deposit, but still looking nicely orange. Aroma of sourdough, redcurrant, garden weeds, mouldy hazelnuts, dried orange peel, toast, red apple peel, jute, dusty old grains, pineapple, delicate honey sweetness somewhere and floral hops. The taste unmistakably reveals infection, as the gushing and ’dirty sourness’ in the aroma already announced; a coarse, deep sourness overlies crisp, orange- and pineapple-like fruitiness especially in the onset. After that, it does get more mellow, but it remains detectable till the finish. Carbonation is spritzy, mouthfeel soft and fluffy, with bready and toasted malts adorned with curaçao spiciness; finish is yeasty, bready and moderately hoppy, in a deep earthy, subtly peppery, softly bittering way. A certain amount of alcohol warmth is there after swallowing but not present in the taste, but something astringently phenolic, probably linked to the infection, does linger for a while. Too bad for the infection and the gushing, could have been a decent beer otherwise.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle. Beautiful deep hazy orange, loads of cloudy white foam, dissipating slowly leaving some lacings. Aroma is citrus up-front, then more sweeter tones of bread, vort, again some sour notes of orange and wheat, some well executed yeasty complexity and a dry finish. Medium body, low carbo, soft and dry texture. Solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle, vintage 20/12/2013. Pous hazy deep yellow with a tiny off-white head. The aroma is sweet malts and a tad of the yeast, very triple alike character. Medium to full body, fair amount of sweetness and full malt body, topped with a resin bitterness at the end. Taste is aged malts all over the place. This is a nice and well drinkable beer.
