This spontaneous fermented beer has been aged in Hungarian oak barrels and appears with a light amber color with almost no head.

The aroma is huge and very vinous. A clear impression of oxidized apples is the first thing that hits you, which made us think of heavy old fashioned British apple ciders. The aroma also reveals the wooden notes from the barrels along with some burned toffee and spices like Star anise.

It has a very heavy acidic profile at first, one that quickly slides into a smooth kind of sweetness. We taste green apples, carambola and very young green grapes. It has a certain lactic acidic touch and a creamy dry finish that lasts forever and bares the green impressions through.

Some mild creamy blue cheese on roasted rye bread would work great due to both the lactic and acidity impressions in this beer.

Bottle @ Ølbutiken copenhagen. Light copper coloured. High carbonation. Very citrus with a bit of old leaves. Sourness is quite overwhelming, but shows potential. With some aging it might become more balanced.

Koelschtrinker (17704) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Dumpfer Geruch. Trockener, mild säuerlicher Antrunk. Geringe Würzigkeit, dann holziger etwas dumpf bleibend, der Tiefgang fehlt. Süffig und nett aber zu. 10/11/10/11/11/11

Zlotta (2255) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Sampled from 0.375 l bottle. Clear, golden amber with a white head. Sourish-fruity, quite funky aroma of lemon, gooseberry, green apples, barnyard and oak. Moderately sour, quite fruity, very funky and dusty taste of lemon, gooseberry, green apples, barnyard and oak, followed by a medium long, moderately tart and rather woody-dry finish. Medium body, moderately astringent and quite effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very nice!

2014 vintage. Gold color. Off white head that's quickly gone. Aroma of orange marmalade, glazed donut, little funky, citrus peel rind, some cinnamon spice. Taste is sharp and tart, lemon citrus, subtle earthy funk. Dry as a bone. So good. Medium to high carbonation, champagne like. Medium body. She's a beaut. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AwaKe (250) - Laval, CANADA - JUN 10, 2016
En bouteille. Couleur dorée, assez foncée, reflets rosacés. Arômes de pommes vertes, cuir, campagne, ça sent un peu le sûri. Belle acidité au goût, très surette. Encore une fois pommes vertes, cuirette mais aussi beaucoup de bois, poivre. Un peu de houblon citronné en fin de bouche. Palais faible, effervescence élevée. Bonne gueuze, rien pour se jeter à terre mais définitivement une bonne bière pour se familiariser au style.

With Z, pours a pink hue with a ephemeral head. Nose is sour and tart with a nice pungency ! Taste is oaky , with woody calvados and a very even pleasant tartness and sourness. Finishes on the same tasting notes with a very pleasant sour tart biting ending . Nice, very nice ! Quaff Score 8 / 10
