Fruity more than funky. Grapefruit and a bit of funk but we’ll balanced and a bit of hay on the finish. Solid brew.

hirigalzkar (2357) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2014
Sample @ SBWF. Sweet and fruity with heavy notes of apricots. Almost too light and [therefore] a bit one dimensional.

Jool (190) - - OCT 3, 2014
Bouteille 750ml. Roseâtre, petite mousse tranquille. Nez d’agrumes, on voudrait dire lime mais pas aussi acide. Bouche légèrement fruitée, presque sucrée: l’hibiscus s’y fait sentir, à la manière d’un verre de jamaica. Très légèrement acidulée, contraste donc avec le nez. Un peu de barrique. Le brett n’est décelable que si on sait qu’il y est à mon avis, c’est vraiment subtil. Raffraichissante.

_angst_ (3051) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle bought @ The Mikkeller webshop. Pours hazy vibrant pinkish orange with a rather small frothy and fizzy white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity and funky with crackers, pink grapefruit juice, lime juice, blood orange juice, hibiscus, dry soil, barnyard, moist hay, moist wood, black currants, horse blanket, kumquats and lemon zest. Taste is slightly sour, tiny bitter, fruity, floral and funky with crackers, blood orange juice, lime juice, hibiscus, rose water, moist hay, moist wood, dry soil, minerals, barnyard and orange zest. Mouthfeel is sparkling, dry, tiny tart and light bodied. Finish is tiny sour, tiny bitter, fruity, floral and funky with crackers, lime juice, hibiscus, rose water, moist hay, barnyard, minerals, orange zest and lemon zest. Great bright citric nose but the taste is a bit muted and doesn’t live up to the same standards. Still a top notch saison though.
