kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Very cloudy off brown color. Pours with a good white head that halves before the first sip, but still good. Sour aroma is old and smells like an an old church with dank alcohol soaked wood. Flavor is the same with a brighter finish. Not very good for a sour because its way too rotten, alcoholic wood tasting.

Buongiorgio00 (764) - - JAN 9, 2014
Un esperimento degno di rispetto, capace di sfornare una signorina scoppiettante dal gusto compesso: caramello, note citriche e di mandarino, dolcezza sofisticata da zucchero di canna, il tutto avvolto da un sentore acidulo molto stimoltante. Funky fin nell’anima!

Bomber thanks to Tony. Gold with no head. Spiced cider aroma. Flat and weird.

DrSilverworm (6366) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mildly hazy amber orange color. Couple bits of lace. Great, bright orange citrus, lightly tannic flavor, light caramel malt, some funky brettiness. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More slick finish. Light bitter, moderate sweet, some light alcohol heat, light to moderate tart. Kind of tangy. Solid funky wild ale, doesn’t stand out too much, though.. Expected more from Mikkeller

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a slightly hazy amber color witha small off white head. The aroma and flavor have decent funk, brett character, some fruits (apple, pear), caramel, lightly toasted bread with moderate sweetness. The finish is on the dry side which was expected due to the Brett. Decent.

Bottle - 9.39%. Very striking aroma reminded me of Soy sauce, great taste found myself savouring the last few mouthfuls

highlandlad (1416) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2013
A nice sour ale from one of the globe’s most adventurous brewers. Inconsistent they may be, but never dull. Cloudy bronze with a generous head. Inviting aroma of sour cherries, pineapple, brett and wheat-sheaf. Fizzy palate, thin to medium body. Big burst of flavour up-front but it falls away a little in the mid-palate. Fairly sweet but balanced by some mouth-watering fruity acids. Spicy finish and some alcoholic warmth. Perhaps a bit too high in alcohol for the style but overall a very decent package. Not a million miles from Orval with its herbal overtones. (330ml bottle from Leura Cellars. BB 14/3/18)

2013.09 - fles 33cl - koperkleurig bier, mooei crèmerige beige kraag - neus : zuur en fruitig - mond : fruitig en matig zure aanzet, serieus bitter - in mijn opinie wint het aroma van dit bier het van zijn smaak
