0.75 l bottle, kindly shared by larsga. Cloudy orange colored body. Low ash-blond head. Sharp floral and herbal aroma. Light sour grassy notes.
Taste is bone dry and bitter. Herbal and kind of zesty, with astringent mouthfeel. Soapy and bitter ending. Challenging, not easy to like. [09.02.13]

Bottle at Deanso’s Den Haag April RB tasting. Poured a cloudy brown colour with a thin off white head. The aroma is weak and a little sour. The flavour is sour, dry. It has the consistency of treacle. Not for me.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
5 years old from Umberto at Gonlin pub! The pour is black with no head! The nose is coffee, lemons, vinegar, sour funk business. Just amazing. The taste is incredibly tart and sweet. Well balanced. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean. The body is light and finish is long.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
pours muddy light amber with a low dirty off-white head, little retention. some lightly roasted malts, smoke, minerals, light garbagy, sulphur and soapy notes, light acidity and astringency, very yeasty - basement and some dust. bright carbonation, light body, lightly acidic and grassy finish, mouthfeel is more than decent. but the rest is clearly off-putting (aroma and taste). awkward brew!
