3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
If the intent was to brew a Belgian style ale with a pleasant orange citrus character, understated carbonation, then they did it spot on. Smooth mouthfeel. Decent drinkability with food. If this moderately bretted ale qualifies as a wild ale, then there are funkier beers around not listed as wild ales. Thanks OCBeerSociety for hooking me up.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle enjoyed at Schouslkjelleren, shared with daje
Pours hazy golden/orange with a white head. Smells of phenols, malts, distinct brett and must. Moderate sweet, quite dry, alot of brett also in the flavor. I guess this bottle is quite young; the brett hasn’t made this beer bone dry yet; and the phenols was quite dominant in the aroma. A lovely beer; a good showoff for what brettanomyces can do totally alone withouyt those bacteria buds

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 12.7oz, corked. It pours a hazy, orange body and just some white bubbles as a head. Orange peel, canned pineapple, some pale malts, spice notes and a yeasty note. Some barnyard hints in the far back. Full to medium body, quite dry, with very soft carbonation. Tropical fruits, some white sugar and a faint spiced and yeasty touch in the flavor. Pear hints. Fruity finish. A beer starting of boring as hell, but it soon turns into a very tasteful and pleasant drink. 130222

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours nice clear blond with some head and lacing. Aroma is of pilsner malt (or something like that), fruits, yeast. Taste is of fruits, malt, very sligth bretts, but not that much on the funk side. Palate: Medium body, round. Overall: I guess this one is to young (6 months old), and maybe some bretts would develop with time, like orval. Anyways, for now, this one is good, but far from outstanding.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (375 ml). Thanks to jp7161! Slightly hazy golden with a small white head and intense lacing. There’s surprisingly no brettanomyces in the aroma. There a lot of "missing" aroma, but not much except pilsner malt and Season yeast (?). There’s no brettanomyces in taste either, but there’s slight fruity notes (maybe from the brett yeast). Moderately sweet. Palate is clean. Medium carbonation. Slightly watery. Good Belgian Ale and well balanced and disappointing considering the aroma and that there’s absolutely no brettanomyces in there despite the name of the beer. Drinkable. Maybe too young?
