3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep orangish color, opaque and with a white, foamy and long-lasting head. Tart, aggressive and yeasty aroma, horse blanket and sweat hints. Tastes like a champagne or a sherry, with an important compound of tartness and a medium dry finish. Itís a very aggressive beer in a very particular style. I donít know if I like it...

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.

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.

Dark amber, medium carbonation. Smell is tart apples, spiced apple cider, vinegar. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter up front, with a tingle of tartness a moment later. This intrigued me immediately, but it took a several sips to decide I really like it.

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.
