4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/9/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart apple, lemon, pear, clove, pepper, coriander, caramel, bread, nuttiness, allspice, hay, grass, oak, light leather, funk, light vinegar, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of spice and yeast ester notes with moderate malt presence; and good strength. Taste of big tart apple, lemon, pear, clove, pepper, coriander, caramel, bread, nuttiness, allspice, herbal, hay, grass, oak, funk, light leather, light vinegar, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart light fruits, clove, pepper, coriander, caramel, bread, nuttiness, allspice, oak, hay, grass, herbal, light vinegar, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of spice, malt, and yeast ester flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, lightly prickly, and lightly acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent wild biere de garde style. All around great balance and complexity of spice, yeast ester, and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

6.1% Bottle from Ølbutikken in Copenhagen. It was about 2250yen(127DKK). It pours a lovely copper gold with a nice head of foam. This is blend 2 bottled on Oct.4th 2012 do about a year old. Drunk from a snifter It has a rich Belgian estery aroma, fruity with some nutty notes & hints of spices. The flavor is sweet & slightly sour, very tart but just for a moment before bellowing out. Well balanced & drinkable.I get cherry, oak woodyness, a hint of nuts & spices in the finish. A really complex & interesting beer, worth trying if you can find it! My wife’s from a wine type glass(Mikkeller & Friends 0.2cl glass) had more Brett in the aroma...
