3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazy, dirty amber color with virtually no head - though it is foaming like crazy when poured. An incredibly sour aroma, apples, wood, quite a lot of brett, a tad vinous, and perhaps a tiny bit of honey. A sweet and sour taste of brett, grapes, fermented fruits, some white wine, and a touch of wood. A medium body, a slick texture, and a fizzy carbonation. Finish is more heavily marked by wood and some leather, as well as by a tiny bit of alcohol - previously undetectable. Overall the beer is very pleasant, sour yes but with good reason and plenty of succulent flavors to back it up.

Hazy gold - amber beer, small pale cream colour head, Palate is light, semi dry and fairly crisp. Nice level of citrus with mild and savoury brett. Modest woody bitterness in to a light grappa aniseed. Light semi dry finish. An interesting and drinkable beer.

330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn) (7:4:6+:4:14-=3.5)
Pleasant winey aroma first, then a lovely sourness - crisp. Sweet smooth palate, but pleasant carbonation. Pleasant sour taste, plenty of sweet white grape juice, and woody hint. 12% - no way!? Finish has pleasant woodiness, and more of the lovely grape juice. Interesting and characterful.
