4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
05/01/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (375ml bottle). Bevuta al Mikkeller Beer Festival. Ambrata chiara, intensa e brillante, con schiuma bianco sporca dai riflessi giallognoli, non molto persistente. Al naso è magnifica, sembra un vino bianco, acidula, delicata, leggermente fruttata. In bocca parte come un diesel, risultando un po’ debole di corpo, corta, leggermente acquosa, ma mantiene comunque una certa finezza e migliora tantissimo sorso dopo sorso. Corpo medio-basso, carbonazione soft. Sorprendente.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On Tap last year, I have tried this out of the bottle and now on tap, and I still get the same weak tasting notes from it. Dark, boring amber pour, minimal head, not much lacing, aromas of coffee, oak, lavender, taste is filled with weird nutty flavors, wood, stale or non-existant brett. Very Flat. This is def not mikkellers best showing and I found myself not being able to finish a 12 oz glass.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours a deep orange golden color with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is malty with defined notes of red wine. Nothing really complex nor sour. Taste is similar: malty, boozy, winey. Not really sour. It just has some funkyness typical of white wines. Short sweetish finish. Mouthfell is medium to full with good carbonation. Overall, not really a sour ale in the literal sense. But it definitely reminds of.wine, mostly white wine.
