3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice anber colored beer with a fair amount of off-white head. Nice looking beer. A sweet aroma that makes me think of an old wooden ship. I dont find the taste as sour as I had exoected of a lambic style beer and had actually hoped for some more. It has some sourness but also a lot of sweetness and a little saltiness. The best thing about the taste I think, is the woody taste of the whine barrels. I am a little disapointed since I had quite some expectations to what I thought was a Mikkeller classic, and I really loved the recent lambic Hues also by Mikkeller. I must admit that a had a little cold at the time of tasting though, so maybe some aroma has past me by, and I might not have gotten 100 procent of the potential experience.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours unclear yet bright medium dark golden with a creamy off-white head offering good retention and lacing. intense leathery and peppery bretts, borderline rotten fruits - berries, toasted spicy wheat, chocolate brettiness, rhubarb, coffee grinds, spices - miscellaneous although dill seeps through. bright carbonation, light body, dry bretty-woody-very astringent finish. more complex and less off (as per caramel and slightly rotten fruitiness) than chardonnay/mango edition. tasty and dry enough to make it enjoyable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is lightly barnyardy, hints of tartness/wine barrel. A bit tempered. But the flavor is quite solid, with a bretty pineapple character given a tart edge by wine barrel. Dry finish. In a world of mediocre Mikkeller sours, this one is quite good and probably a touch underrated. Elegant in its simplicity.
