3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at BSBh, pours hazy golden with active carbonation and small white head. Aromas are brett, peach, wood. Flavor is lots of Brett critters, peach/apricot but it’s subtle, sweet tart innards, and wet old wood.

Bomber from greens. Light with a nice wheat and honey tang to the flavor. More of which comes through as it warms so let this one sit longer than usual. Cloudy muted yellow color. Little bit of banana and touch of spice on the finish. Nice especially for being so low alcohol.

Tap at CBC 2014. Golden-yellow in the glass, small head. Mild malty-sourish aroma. Starts mild, not as sourish as exspected, fruity hints of apricot. Well balanced finish, quite drinkable. Nice!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at Roscoe’s for the Sour Beer Summit. Hazy golden peach color. Aroma is light citrus, yeast, and bandage. Taste is similar to aroma, with dank but manageable yeast sourness and citrus. Strange, but good and light.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Cloudy, dingy amber body with a mostly fuzzy, slightly creamy eggshell cap. Big rotten pineapple & funky hay aroma, loaded with brettanomyces. Lightly tart lemon-lime with a small backbone of acidity & faint must. More mild on the palate than expected. Didn’t realize this was only 4% ABV til later. Lemon spritz, citrusy, a touch of musty cobwebs, funky Brett, underripe pineapple shards, & some freshly cut grass. Light, refreshing, & pretty quaffable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Slightly hazy apricot color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly leaving minimal lacing. Aroma of light citrus and lemon with some apple and mild hay from the brett. The taste is both juicy and tangy at first with oranges, lemons and tangerines. Dries out nicely with a musty wet hay character. Finishes with a hint of phenolic taste and mild herbal hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is aqueous with a light body and medium/high carbonation. Very nice and Orval like with well blended flavors. Drinkable and refreshing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale, cloudy hay yellow with half inch of white head and scant lacing. Sour apple-y scent, brett funkiness, yeast notes that share similarities to champagne, lemon-y citrus rind, and detectable cream. Average carbonation, puckery sour mouthfeel but smooth and not overbearing, with average thickness, crisp finish. Crisp funky brett that’s somewhat tame and displays a creaminess, grape, champagne yeast, citrus throughout, finishes doughy. Dangerously good, recommended for someone with interest but little experience with sour beers.

Flaske: Aftenens helt store overraskelse. Fornem øl med masser af brett i både smag og duft. Tilpas tørhed gør denne øl nærmest Orvalsk. Virkelig en lækker lækker øl.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Keg at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014, blue session. 02/05/2014. Hazed golden colour with a lasting white head. Aroma is fart, baby diaper and resin hop. Weird. Flavour is earthy, farty sulphur, earthy lingering stale malts. Some lingering lemon. Palate is semi sweet, fine carbonation. Very disappointing.
