A strange one, aroma of hops, orange , spic and spam. The taste is woody and also wood cleaner. Some ginger, drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very slightly hazy gold pour with thin bubbly white head. Aroma is green, fresh funky aromas, sweat, brett, sour dough, wet grains. Taste is tart, not too sour, light bretty funkiness, still pretty malty. Palate is light, a bit undercarbed maybe, dry finish. Not super refined, but very refreshing, bright.

375 ml bottle from czar - thanks, mate. Pours a veiled and sediments-filled pale golden with a short lived white head. Aroma is wine, cheese, sweat, unripe fruit. Flavor is fruits, wild yeast, humidity, malt. Finish is very dry, very brett-ish, wild yeast, tartness. Lots of tartness. Medium body, strong carbonation. Good!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (375 ml). Slightly hazy golden/orange with a small fully lasting off-white head (almost beige) and little lacing. There’s some funky notes in the aroma along with green apple notes (in a good way), barnyard, brettanomyces, leather and light sweetness notes. Taste is moderately sweet (not cloying, but a little more than expected) with brettanomyces, some funk and fruity notes. Light to medium body. Lively carbonation. Slightly dry finish (could be drier though). Quite enjoyable. Another good offering from Mikkeller "spontan" series. It’s in the same league as the good Belgian lambics. Drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 Pours a hazy dark golden with a thin cover of foam that leaves some lacing. Aroma is of funky cheese rind, cereals and citrus. Taste has a nice acidity but is only lightly tart and not a full sour. Green apples and lemon flavors. Body is medium-light and it is really refreshing. Not overly complex but still really enjoyable! I need to find some Spontanale now...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Gold. Aroma of freshly chundered vomit - in a good way. An acidic, apply flavour with a sweet and sour vibe. Underdeveloped and very light for an unblended lambic. Interesting.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Bottle at Craft Beer Co in Farringdon. 26th June 2013. Reddish orange with quite a bit of carbonation. Zero retention in the head. This is absolutely the last time I’m going to spend money on this Spontanale carry on.
