UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014
Look: Pours with average size off-white bulky head. Fast retention, mostly diminishing within minutes. Leaves moderate lacing. Rich amber colour, mostly clear, slightly hazy. Carbonation visible.
Smell: Fruity, tropical fruits to be exact (pineapple mostly, some melon and mango). Then comes the sour part and big leathery brett funk. Also some white wine in there, maybe a bit of sulphur notes. Spicy. The smell is rich and fresh enough, a good mix for a wild ale.
Taste: Sour and cane like sweetness, fruitiness. Then comes the moderate sweet caramelish middle malt part and then the brett leather funk takes over. Some hints of white wine just before it goes down the throat. Maybe some tart too. Aftertaste filled with light bitterness - pleasant. Missing some of the fruitiness from the smell.
Mouthfeel: Medium dry body. Surprisingly crisp carbonation, adds that fresh character. Drinkable.
Overall: Solid wild ale, some notes from white wine and a little less from mango, interesting mix, worth a try. Brett and sour arenít overwhelming, but do fill most of the aroma.

Bottle @ Mikkeller. Some haze to the amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is nicely fruity. Good mango, some caramel, vanilla, and tart melon. A touch of pineapple, too. Fairly sweet flavor. Lots of tropical fruit, mango, peach, caramel, and vanilla. Citric tartness, a bit of unripe melon, and apple. A bit musty, too.

Tap at Delirium Tokyo. Rusty amber colour, small off-white bubbly head. Aroma is very nice, mango, gooseberry, lychee maybe, white wine, Brett, and bizarrely gaffer tape. Taste is great too, gueze-like flat creaminess, slightly plastic like, nice mango fruitiness, sour cream. Real nice stuff.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating #827 - December 13, 2013 - On tap at Beer Revolution. Clear golden pour with a sticky white foam that bubbles away fairly quick. Wondrous aromas of oaky chardonnay, mango, peach, lavender. Palate is sticky tropical fruit punch sweetness, and the sourness comes in with some glorious oaky dryness. Phenomenal sour ale.
