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 (3546) - 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

slowrunner77 (6083) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2014
nice. After this the mouthfeel of the beer is a tiny bit of a letdown. A little too much carbonation for such a light palate. The flavor is nice, though. More sweet malt/fruit aspects and a bit of lambic & farmhouse funk. Finishes fairly clean with a bit of grain. Glad I tried one, but for $6.49 - not again..."

There was a slight sulphur aroma when I cracked this one which was a little off putting. Taste was well rounded between a little sour yeastie notes, pale almost sweet malts, and a freshness from the hops

VictorStr (1424) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2014
I aromen hel del syrlighet, lite spontanjäst känsla. Den finns där lite i smaken men inte alls lika framträdande. Väldigt kolsyrad.

Grima (2122) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2014
Smells fruity sourish, yeasty. Starts very bitter hoppy, strong sourish. Middle part is hoppy sourish, slight flowery. Goes into a strong floral hoppy finish with some herbal notes.

Botella de 33 cl de 2d2dspuma tomada en el momento en 12-05-2014. Color rubio ámbar bastante transparente con espuma blanca. Aromas maltosos con ligeros herbáceos y cítricos con ciertos tonos de carbónico y sidras. Cuerpo ligero con 4.5 vol con fácil paso por boca, presencia media de carbónico, generando espuma en todo momento al agitarla. Sabores suaves maltosos con toques ligeros de hierbas y cítricos, con cierta acidez combinada con un ligero amargo final. Buena, fresca y ligera para repetir sin problemas.

33cl bottle Pale blond white foam. Citric yeasty nose. Light mouthfeel, a lot of carbonation. Citric notes, yeast, not a nice use of the brettas. Not good!
