3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy orange with nice white foamy head that left a good dose of lacing in my tulip. Thought I had this before, but after looking back at my ratings it was the bretta. Nevertheless I like this one as well. Probably not quite as much as the bretta which is funny as I’m not a huge fan of sours. Cheese and musty aromas in the nose. Nice mouthfeel with a good dose of yeast and estery flavors along with some fruit and spice. Another fine brew from this producer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
375ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). I guess this is my 1k different brewery?! Clear dark golden color. Small size, thick white head, stays. Fizzy, sweet, peach syrup, wheaty in aroma. Sweet, malty, banana, yeasty in taste. Yeasty, messy, apples in aftertaste. Rough and full of acetone.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
375ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Sweet aroma, some grungy graiiness to it. Pretty heady sweet taste, some alcohol in here too. Sticky palate, both from sweetness and I presume resiny hops, which at least provide some long-term interest. Yes, it uses belgian yeast, I can taste that, but the effect is so forced that it’s fake. Some acidity here, not so nice. Throw belgian yeast in, get high scores - narp, doesn’t work for me.
