Sour aroma with tones of yeast (dough). Pours dark golden with a pretty small frothy head. Taste is surprisingly sweat. Very perfumed. Feels quite thin and short. An interesting beer.

Drank with Kaspar 19-3-16 at my place. Not a super complex sour. Taste is a bit boring, not really evolving, just the sour, a bit plain, imo. But then again, I’m not a sour guy.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Missus bought this about 2 years ago, probably from Beermoth. Amber colour. Film and ring of lasting, off white head. Nose is not what I expected. This is like a lightly bretted barley wine? Apple juice. Apple brandy. Fruity, toasted teacake malts. Ripe pear. Soft brett. Hint of almond. Notes of wet leather on the back end. Smells fantastic. Taste is funky, fruity, and slightly tart. Some dryness. Mouthfeel is full, with a little oiliness. Well hidden alcohol. Finishes tart, fruity bitter. Like a geared up version of Orval’s bigger, slightly less refined, brother. Excellent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
"Belgian wild" ale, at Billie’s Bierkafetaria. Medium thick, off-white, stable, papery lacing head over a warm, lightly hazy orangey copper coloured beer. Lovely, vinous and elegant bouquet of sweet sherry, cranberry, marmelade, rosé wine, pink grapefruit peel, yoghurt, mango, sugar glaze, stale sweat, green olive. Sweet candied orange in the mouth, overripe strawberry, gooseberry sourishness but less ’deep’ and tenacious than expected though a certain berry tartness remains till the very end; softish carbo, very soft and slick body, honeyish malt sweetness underneath, bit nutty, dryish finish of the initial berry tartness but the fruity and malty, at some points even refinedly sugar sweetness prevails, with very low hop profile; bit vinous as well due to the (unexpectedly) high ABV. I assume this becomes more and more interesting as it grows older and the Brett, which I assume is present here, gets the time to eat the residual sugars - definitely one for cellaring, I’d argue.
