The golden amber color was deeper in shade than most BSPAs, and the the head atop was three finger thick. The smell was not typical of a wild ale, as I did not get any Brett character via the nose. I could only detect sour cherries and honey via the nose. The taste was similar to the smell, with honey like sweetness, and green apple sourness. There was a bit of an unexpected hop bite to this as well. The body was on the light side of medium, and aided in the quenching nature of the beer. The alcohol was very well hidden, and the strength lable was shocking compared to the experience.

Smooth, easy, gentle, never 9.38%, never. Not sour, but quite delicious. Was hoping for a little tart but I always am.

Tap at Brewdog Brum. Nope, did not really get this one. Essence of arrowroot biscuit, flat like compressed cardboard packaging. I must be going mad. Sour? Huh? Did not taste strong neither.

Pours a hazy copper colour with an average sized but very dense and creamy off white head which leaves some good lace all over the glass. Aroma is sweet, fruity, lightly spicy, overall funky is an accurate description which i believe comes from brett. Flavour is dry fruit, bready, alcohol bite, some sweetness and overall not that sour yet funky would be accurate here too. I love how mikkeller plays around with the names and doesnt use a name without meaning. A pretty subtle 9+ abv beer!
