Bottle from a shop in Iruña. Aromas of caramel, apple. Taste is sweet, with light sourness, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

I’m lovin’ this brew. Pours a clouded burnt apricot color with a one finger head that lingers reducing to a spattered island and a fluffy lace. Mild aromatics but defined funk-e play and integral role here. Medium full nectar with mild creamy residual effers. Very easy to drink with a mild sweetness component backing up this lazy sourness that translates into old shoe leather and a touch of acidity. The finish goes on forever with excellent bittering. Amazing beer!

Bottle from Beets. Cinnamon spiced apple cake. Yeasty funk. Golden creamy pour. Little booze but so well balanced. Absolutely top notch.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2012 Bottle at home. Skype tasting with FaithHealer1. Poured a dark reddish amber with a thick rocky off-white head that fades to a frothy lump with lots of lacing. Awesome nose - vinous, tart, really lambic, woody brett, raspberry seed, touch of Belgian wheat character too, cloves and banana just lurking under the surface. Nice soft flavours, really creamy wheat, resinous fruity brett character, juicy berry fruits, slight honeyed Belgian malts. Lots going on, really complex, reminds me of Nelson Sauvignon in some ways but less sour. Soft bitterness in the finish, just a hint of bretty funk too. Amazingly drinkable. One of Mikkeller’s best. 4.2....... Bottle at home, again. So much fruit, slightly older bottle with slightly less bitterness, but so much juicy fruit character. Amazing. That is all. 4.4

hopbomber (107) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2012
Golden strong ale reminds me of Leifmans goudenband sour fruity tones cirtus malt and yeast. Very belgian-like really drinkable alcohol hard to notice colossal brew, £3 for a 9.5% 1/2 bargain.

Reimer96 (1220) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 21, 2012
Pours a cloudy orangish amber with a huge off white head and lots of lace. Aroma is interesting, starts sweet bannana and then gets sour. Mouth feel is light and dry tasting like cloves and bread. Very sessionable for a 9 point beer.

Clear golden with a creamy white head. Clean mildly sour green apple aroma. Nice lively palate. Creamy citrus and grain taste with good lightly sour taste. Very good.

29/VIII/2012 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 14/III/18 (2012-978)

Clear amber to copper red beer, huge creamy yellowish head, very stable, adhesive, nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: some banana when opening the bottle, lychee, citrus, pineapple, resin, is there bretta in it? (yes, just checked the bottle) little chemical. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, citrus, pineapple, lychee and mango, some spices, bit peppery, sweet malts, lemon juice, pretty bitter, hops, bretta is barely noticeable. Aftertaste: bit medicinal first, then the exotic fruits come kicking back in, pineapple, passion fruits, grapefruit, citrus. Not very "Belgian" though, if you ask me.

Dobre. Nareszcie Mikkeler przygotowal dobre piwo w stylu dzikie Ale. Niewieka piana, miedziany kolor. W zapachu lekka konska derka i octowy zapach. W smaku takze kwaskowosc byla wyczuwalna ale delikatnie, za to bogato bylo slodowo oraz chmielnie. Wszystko to w miare tworzylo zgrana calosc.
