Estebanik (584) - Lublin, POLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Strasznie gruboziarnista, ale powiedzmy, że dość trwała. W aromacie końska derka i trochę mydlin, trochę pomarańczy. Bardzo wysoko wysycone, musuje niczym szampan. W smaku niezbyt głębokie, troche pomaranczy, moze brzoskwini. W smaku bretty juz dość marginalne, choć dalej odczuwalne. Dosc miekkie w odczuciu o dziwo, ale przy tym sprawia nieco mydlane wrażenie. Może być, ale spodziewalem sie więcej.

ciocanelu (891) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - FEB 19, 2016
Hazy dark orange color with off-white head. Aroma is intense on the brett yeast, slightly tart with fermented fruit notes. Taste starts also with fermented fruits, slightly tart but also bitter. You also get the intense brett specific funk with hay and barnyard notes, also slightly metallic. Body is medium with high effervescence. Quite nice overall, feels really authentic and rustic.

kajser27 (1116) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 19, 2016
Hazy, deep amber colored, medium off white creamy head, nice lacing. Aroma is of tart fruit, bit sugary, funky barnyard, bit citrus. Taste is medium sweet caramel, bit candy sugar, tartish fruit, tropical and citrus, light+ funky notes, light sourness, moderate peppery-spicy bit citrusy bitterness but quite astringent in the finish and aftertaste, dryish. Medium- bodied, average carbonation, oily.

Trolleo (1147) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 19, 2016
Cloudy red to amber color, huge off-white head. Aroma of hops and fruit. As expected, similar to Delirium Argentum I had recently. Little bit sour, sweet and bitter changing in your mouth, also lots of fruit. Medium body, lively carbonation. Sweet and sour finish reminds me of some saison. Not bad. //2 liter bottle from Svijet Piva, bottled as Arh Hvaad?!

Scrumpy369 (257) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 17, 2016
Bottle at home. Hazy amber coulour with a big, fluffy white head. Nose reflects some notes of a belgian ale (yeasty notes) but it it dominated by the brettanomyces (green apple, grapefruit, balsamic vinegar). Much less sour than the nose suggests. Slight sourness, that turns slowly into low-medium bitterness. Decent beer, but expected (and wanted) something sourer.

crim (100) - POLAND - FEB 15, 2016
na starcie pochwalę bardzo ładny wygląd, dobra piana jak na styl belgijski w aromacie mamy morele, przypalona sliwke czy coś takiego, pomarańcz i daleko w tle gdzieś siano, iglaka/żywice, bardzo świeży i słodki w smaku jest średnio wytrawne, goryczka średnia ale iglasta, dodatkowo czuć ściągające pestki wiśni/czereśni, posmak orzeźwiający i owocowy Podsumowując obowiązkowo musicie sprbować!

Fab_Browning (11) - - FEB 10, 2016
Bière plaisante dont l'inspiration est clairement l'Orval. On ressent le goût de Brett typique à l'Orval même si cette dernière reste une référence. Mikkeler à fait du beau boulot : belle couleur qui tire sur le rouge, houblonnée comme il faut (Styrian goldings?). Manque un peu de tenue de mousse.

malrubius (2448) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Can from Table and Vine. Says 7.6%. Murky amber with full lasting head and lace. Green grape citrus bready aroma with a hint of toasted nuts. Peachy grainy cereal sweetness with citrus rind and spicy bitterness that lingers. Medium body, nice soft texture. When I poured it I was worried but it is totally fucking delicious.

bartlebier (3209) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2016 33cl bottles bb03/2025 (yes), samped alongside 6-12mo Orval. Note: In one of M.s 2015 big market maneuvres, now widely available in Belgian supermarkets as "Mikkeller rh Hvad?!": why would "Hva S?!" be the main alias? - - Pours a tad more bloody orange, mimicking its organic dishwashing foam well, if less boisterously. Generous depot. - Citrusy and soapy lavendar approximations of the true Orval leathery ciderfunk in the bouquet, filling the room upon opening - must have stripped that potent original brett. Great balance of an earthy herbal bitterness, funk-stripped candied orange and a dirty apricot compote malt base with coarses spicy and soapy strains running in between. A tad more coarse, less dry and clean than Orval, but a very impressive (and probably meticuyeastly Proef-engineered) "homage" to le vrai chef-duvre. - Very curious to see what this will do over time. // Rerate bottles bb2025: distinct IPa-like hoppy notes in the finish, more like a bretty IPA. Coarser than Orval, still nice approximation.
