4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2007 bottle, 750 ml. And I should have planned for an old bottle of Belgian wild-fermented beer mught be a gusher, but still I don’t plan. So, lots of foam, and when I stuck the bottle into my mouth to keep the beer off the carpet, I got a few bits of grain, too. Zesty smell of a beer with a nice dose of brett, or sour mash. Hazy gold color; after the big chunky gushing foam settles, it almost disappears into a slight ring. Taste is indeed spicy, and more than a bit of it still seems to come from muddled hops. Warming alcohol on a night when it’s just 4° above. Just a bit grainy, with sharp effervescence. Green apples in the foreground, lemon in the back, and just a touch of grass from either wild yeast or hops.

Backlog. Shared bottle of batch 463 at Mi2 at Cardinal 06.05.13. Pale golden, almost clear. Aroma of gueze. Taste is sour at first, then more balanced, but still with some acid. There is more hops and sweetness in aftertaste, but still with sourness. Medium to dry mouthfeel. High drinkability.

Disig gul vätska med vitt skum. Syrlig och fräsch doft. Citron, gräs och lite funk. Ganska stallig och pepprig smak med citron, hö, ceder och äpplekart. Syrlig med fin torr avslutning

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2015 A hazy honey-ish yellow with a big, foamy head that goes away quickly and threatens a much more vigorous palate than what actually comes. The nose is fruity esters in the foreground (grapes, green apples, just a bit of pineapple), spiced up by zesty Brett, mineraly yeast, a bit of old wood, a suggestion of booze, and even a dash of herbs. As the glass goes shallow, honey and caramel come to life too. The mouthfeel is medium and smooth, with constant but unintrusive carbonation and a medium-to-thin body. The taste is more tart than not, with minor mineraly bitterness and minor citrusy sweetness. Towards the end it turns drier, with notes of lemon zest and yeast. Not my go-to type of beer, but it is interesting, refreshing (at least initially), and deceivingly impairing.

Pours hazy golden with tall white head. Aroma of elderflower, gooseberry, green apples, light green grapes, light citrus. Taste is mellow balanced apple tart with a lightly sweet, smooth finish. Light, crisp body with soft carbonation. Maybe not exceptional in any way, but incredibly well balanced and oh so very drinkable!

9/18/2009 5:41:56 AM Bottle at Beer Tempel. Big golden body with foamy head. Oaky and floral nose, some cheese even. Taste is quite funky, with cheesy hops and lots of spiciness. But also quite sour. Overall it’s quite tasty but not really my thing.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma starts out Brett, fruit, and a bit of funk then later gets perfumey. Flavor likewise transforms from just a tart beer to a fruity, malt, beer with many levels. Perfect body for style. Very drinkable.
