2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clearish pale golden pour covered by a healthy white foam. Despite all its components, hops remain the dominant feature, throwing fragrant citrus and earth laden aromas at the nose. In mouth, it feels a bit loose, kinda oily and very dry, combining with the hops to the point of astringency, with a powdery, mineral tang... altogether, frankly a bit rough when the bitterness is anything but subtle. At the same time, it’s thin. One of those rare beers in which I feel a little more body and sugars would be welcome, making the edges smoother. Here, the dryness frmo the brett is noticeable, but the flavours, I would not have guess any wild yeast in there if I’d not read it previously. As for the wheat, in this thinness and hop slaughter, it is quickly forgotten. Perhaps if I’d gotten to try it when it was really fresh, I’d have been satisfied with a focus on awesome fresh hops, but alas, a beer brewed in Belgium by Danes and exporter all over the US starts with a few strikes when trying to attempt just what seems reasonable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small white head. Hazy yellow body. Funky resiny tropical fruit aroma with mealy spicy notes. Dry-sweet funky barnyard and pineapple taste with mealy resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish-acidic spicy funky herbal aftertaste with barnyard, resin, and mango notes. Lovely. Harmonic and drinkable, pretty interesting, too, with the funky character. (0.4l draft at Amundsen, Oslo.)

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Firstly, NOT an IPA. This is a funky wheat beer. I know there are hops here, but the unmalted wheat takes over. Lots of citrus, dry crisp finish. Busting into this $7 beer longing for your IPA you will be disappointed. If you want an amazing wheat beer, you’re in for a treat. Or, I have no idea what I’m talking about. Try it.
