rdixon77 (1591) - Georgia, USA - APR 1, 2015
Old rating…It’s alright bottle. Nice and light sour, nothing amazing. Brett, citrus, little funk, really crushable though…but who can session at that price?

floydian1 (1184) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 21, 2014
33cl bottle with expiry 29/11/15. This tastes (and looks) basically like an attenuated Orval with a light maltiness, peppers, citrus (oranges mainly) and subtle Brett funkiness on the nose. Taste is lightly bitter and faintly sour with a crisp spicy dry hop finish. Palate is lightish and sessionable with a lively mouthfeel.

Erzengel (5638) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2014
Ein belgisches Ale mit hellem Kandiszucker und neben „normaler“ Hefe, dem sauren, belgischen Brettanomyces-Hefestamm. Geruch leicht säuerlich-frisch. Der Antrunk ist süßlich-herb, leicht blumig-grasig mit angenehmer Herbe, die sich zum Hauptteil weiter ausbaut. Der Hauptteil ansonsten ist mild-neutral und eher etwas körperlos. Zum Nachgeschmack kommt wieder die angenehm.süerliche Lambictypische Note heraus, gepaart mit einer angenehmen Herbe. Ansonsten aber nichts.
→ Interessantes Bier, dem neben der Lambic-Säure und der angenehmen Herbe irgendwie ein malziger Körper fehlt. Es hat schon fast metallische Anklänge! Schade – ich hatte mir mehr erhofft! 7/10/6/7
