4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Hazy hazelnut brown with a medium sized diminishing off white head. Pretty heavy nose with lots of leathery brett and barrel. The flavour has some lactic notes, sour berries, fruit stack, light citrus, oak, lots of leathery brett and horse. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Medium sweet with little bitterness but has a nice level of acidity to challenge the sweetness. Long lasting finish, dry and very light astringent with barrel notes and brett. Damn.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Kick mat & Malt. Unclear reddish/orange body with a thin off-white head. Very nice aroma of acidic red berries, farmhouse funk and a bit vinous. Flavor is refreshing fruity, vinous, medium acidic and hint of wood. Nice and balanced body, long acidic vinous aftertaste. A nice one, especially in the nose, but somewhere about halfway through the bottle it’s losing some of the fascinating and I realize this is not among the best Belgium originals. Still a nice one.
