3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks DSG. Hazy gold-bronze with a white head. A little lactic-yogurt aroma with some berries, mildly sour taste that’s also a little sweet, with raisins. Medium body, quite flat, cereal and raisins finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’s place. Hazy orange. Kinda funky and sourish aroma, with fruitiness (some canned pineapple and more fruits) and a cardboard hint. Flavor has faint sweetness, some funk, fruitiness, some cardboard, malt, a bit of caramel, and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied. BBD is 4/2020, but this one already feels kinda stale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
At a tasting, thanks, small bubbly head, cloudy deep orange color, aroma of orange marmalade, wet wood and a hint of citrus, fruity malty flavor with a buttery touch, light bodied. Disappointing and not too interesting.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
0,75 l flaske med sølvfolie. Klar nøttegyllen øl med en tynn lys film. Vinøs og oksidert aroma. Flat og tykk munnfølelse med litt alkovarme. Maltsødme og en aceton-aktig bitterhet som varer. Jeg har spart denne en stund og det er mulig den burde vært tatt tidligere. Holdbarhetsdato 16/12/14. Tappet 6 år før.

Bottle. Hazy amber with thick head. Spicy, sour aroma, earthy, leaves, resin, bread, bit like forest after rain. Taste is sour, vine like, moderate, but slowly getting heavier. Dry, just dry. Awesome beer.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. A rather fruity, malty, cherry pie like aroma. Hazy, dark red to brown. minimal off white head. Taste is watery, oxidized, papery, flakey, thin. Not very sour. After you get past the fact that this beer isn’t good, then it becomes not that bad. Does hide the 9% abv very well. I just wish it tasted as good as it smells
