Very Belgin and very bitter. Mildewy yeast, and over the top hops...not an America IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at CP&K. It pours cloudy amber, with a thin off-white head. The nose is brown bread, farmyard, funk, spice, banana and some underlying sweetness. The taste is brett, farmyard, funk, spicy yeast, dough, leather, orange and citrus pith, with a very dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Like cranked-up orval on acid. Full on flavour, but pretty god-damn dry.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft. Hazy dark amber with good, foamy, white head / Elegant nose of orchard fruit, caramel, oak, and brett / Light to medium body, delicate, hoppy and acidic with hint of tartness, lovely balance with excellent, bitter finish / Stylish flavors of earth, weed, apple, caramel, oak, and a much appreciated big dose of cow manure / A complex, easy drinker, and I’d like another.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Light hazy golden with a big, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma has lovely funk, lots of horse blanket, pear wine gums, grapefruit hops. Red apple zest. Light grassy and piney. Medium carbonation, great dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of almost dusty funk, light wheaty, citric, apricot. Lots of dryness in the finish, lingering, almost burning.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg @ CPK. Hazy golden color with a big white head. The nose is orchard fruits, white grape, light wood, brett and light wood. The taste is light lemon and herbs, some light cheese and yeast. Light tangy brett and dry grains. Citrus and sea grass. Very dry, pleasing finish. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, very nice! As others have pointed out, it’s pretty reminiscent of orval.

50 cl bottle.
Pours hazy golden color with medium-sized head. Aroma of urinal cake, citrus fruits, floral hops and some pine needles. Flavor of fruits, hops, grass, yeast, some malts and goose berries. Nice aroma which the taste does not quite meet.

50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 2013
Aroma is starts with exotic fruits and hops, but is very shortly overrided with massive amount of urinal cake. Flavour is rather strong on bretta with earthy notes and some hops and background. Way too much bretta here.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy orange yellow colour with a large foamy white head. Aroma of urinal cake, sweet orange and lemon. Some barnyard and pine notes as well after a while, which run over the urinal cake like notes. Flavour of sweet malts, urinal cake, sweet orange, bitter floral hops, caramel and some tartness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. Sour, fruity, high bitter finish. Despite the urinal cake this seems to work quite nicely as the bitterness hides the off-flavours a bit.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 50 cl. Hazy orange with a mostly lasting frothy white head. Nose is citrussy, bretty, herbal, much like a lively Orval. Taste is medium sweet, herbal, citrussy hops, brett, leading to a bonedry, astringent finish. Refreshing. Well made thirst-quencher. Very funky.
