3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
07/05 0.377 l bottle (where did they get that number?!), courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing! It poured hazy orange body with no head. Sour, vinegar aroma, pretty straightforward, but reveals malty sweetness as well. Fine flavor, mostly dominated by sour citrus notes, but balanced out with sweetish fruity and caramel malt. Not so heavy bodied anyway, while alcohol is still very well hidden. Fine long finish, again mix of sour and sweet. As expected this to be a sour ale, wanted it to be more sour, but this is an interesting combination as well.

I liked it, but I expected more from it. The tripel part of the beer pas too dominant, I would have liked the beer to be more sour and intense.

375 ml corked green bottle, vintage 2007, shared with my son Steinar, at Amundsen, Oslo. ABV was 10.5%. First glass poured clear orange, second glass very cloudy with yeast. No carbonation. Intense aroma of farmhouse, horse stable and white wine vinegar. Fairly bitter and dry flavour for a lambic, sour but not extreme.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour out of 375 mL bottle, thanks James! Hazy yellow-orange pour with white head that dissipates quick, aroma brought notes of slight funk, horseblanket, nice hay and bready malts, slight pepper notes into lots of white fruits, oak. Taste is a mix of oak, funk, slight lemony sour into a mix of caramel, biscuit, slight pepper and yeasty spice as well, white fruits come through as well, finishing fairly bitter, slightly oaky, slight tartness as well. Interesting for sure.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 37.5cl, vintage 2012) Cloudy, golden colour with a blond and short foamy head. Slightly yeasty and mildly malty nose with present notes of grassy hops, accompanied by a touch of cellar/horse blanket and traces of alcohol. Mildly bitter and slightly sour flavour, medium to full bodied with a surprisingly flat carbonation. Yeasty, pale malty and mildly sour-fruity taste with notes of citrus and a mouldy cellary touch, accompanied by drying grassy hops; mildly bitter and delicately sourish tart finish with mouldy notes and a tinge of citrus and alcohol shining through. Interesting hybrid beer. 06.X.13

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375ml bottle. Poured a carbonated, straw color with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma was some light citrus, sugar notes, touch of funk tartness. Alcohol is certainly here - thereís no reason for this abv as it would be far more enjoyable to consume I think, with itís light tartness and whatnot if it were lighter. Ah well.
