Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2010
(Bottle, thanks mybestfriend) Pours hazy deep golden to amber with an off-white head. The aroma is of lemon acid, unripe pineapple, fart, lacto, leather, wet basement, tart berries, cheese and some barnyard. The flavour is light sweet and medium acidic with almost no bitterness. Tones of lemon, unripe apricots, earth, cheese, barnyard, wood and light wheat. The mouthfeel is tart with a fluffy, champagne-like carbonation. The finish is cracker dry with lingering citric acid notes. Medium bodied.

MiP (13798) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 Bottle, 7%. Very nice earthy, citric aroma, smells like 3 Fonteinen. Hazy dark golden colour. Sparkling, leaving a small bubbly white head. High carbonation. The flavour is sweeter than expected, still nicely earthy. Good citric flavour, very well-rounded. Mild and pleasant. The carbonation is too high for me, the flavour gains a lot after the beer has been swirled around a bit. 8 3 9 3 20

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2010
Pale orange color with a big head that leaves some lacings. The smell is funky and slightly acidic. Notes of lemon, wood and spices. Mild but characterful. Taste is very good. Very sour with notes of lemon and apples. An almost raw acidity. Notes of grass and wood. Lots of funk going on - barnyard, mud and hey. But the funk is obviously restrained by the acidity. The finish has a gentle grassy bitterness to it and notes of minerals. Unfortunately, the finish gets cut off by very lively and aggressive carbonation. Medium body with a dry finish. Very effervescent, the carbonation actually kills the finish. A good one. Would love to try it with some age on it. Serving type: bottle (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)
