Nice citrus, wheat and wine aroma. Light orange color with a slight cloudiness. Full palate with high carbonation. Flavors were strong and better than the original. Citrus hops with wheat, oak and Chardonnay fruitiness. Interesting.

Bottled. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, citrusy notes, green grapes, wood and funk. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry, tart and with bitter notes. Light to medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Sour. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle from Queens Plaza bottle shop, Brisbane CBD. Golden with a slight haze and a loose white head. The aroma offers light funk, lemony citrus, stone fruits, damp wood, straw and faint bready malts. The flavour is sweeter than the.aroma would suggest with a dry woody white wine finish that lingers. There is however still a Brett feel to it. Palate is thinnish and refeshing with a medium body. A delicate and complex sour beer from a brewer who obviously knows what he is doing,

the other comments are not wrong, I guess, but what I got in front of me from tap in the Mikkeller Bar in San Francisco tastes like horse shit. Really fresh one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 10C. Clear, almost glowing gold with a white head that’s never less than a coat. Bretty aroma with funky lemon, grapefruit, honeyed hay, peach, oak. Not aggressive, but tightly wound rather than inviting. Then sweeter than expected with apricot, hay, honey and the bretty and hoppy notes floating over the top. Finish is dryish with some oak, minerals. Lots of nice things going on, but didn’t really cohere for me - perhaps because it’s about as wild as a pet rock.

Comparing to the non-BA version here you can also find hints of sweet-honey like aromas and flavours. Somewhere in the background there is also some vanilla aromas. Additionally in this verison you can feel white ripe fruits. Finish is semi-dry and short. In overall this verison gives additional basement and woody accents. In some way it breaks the balanced betweens flavours in non-BA version, but still it’s solid and worth trying beer.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 On tap. Medium white head quite lasting. Hazy golden yellow. Hoppy floral aroma. Taste is more complex and dry with quite interesting woody dryness tinge. Quite interesting wheat IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy golden with a fine off white head. Nose is sweet honeydew melon, lemon, rose, mild horsey funk. vanilla. Flavor is more sweet melon, a little citrus peel, floral notes, honey, a little vanilla and oak, slight hint of acidity on the finish, a bit of grass and hay, maybe a tiny bit of clove or banana esters, but really slight, definite horsey funk. Not particularly sour, but a definitely funky and definite oak character. Not the freshest of bottles, so I suspect a lot of the hop flavor has faded, but still quite lovely. Medium to light body with vibrant and fine carbonation. I’m not sure how anybody can say that Mikkeller only produces gimmicky beers. This is a superbly complex sour beer with lots of balance and no gimmicks. Great stuff.
