Benzai (6387) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2011
Dark brown color, beige head. Don’t like the smell at all, too sour. Very nice body. Taste has a nice balanced sourness, but just not my taste.

A Mes rate. Keg at the Cask.A Mikkeller soured beer rarely (never) let’s me down. This is no different. Not the best smelling beer I have had from Mikkeller but as soon as this magic elixir hits my tongue, all that is forgotten. Big fruity barrelly sourness abounds and dizzys the brain for a few seconds after each sip. So bright and exciting for a beer with this reasonably high an abv. Funky yet thoroughly approachable. Superb finish with considerable length. Not something I should probably start the day with but when the boss demands you have a free half... Well, why the funk not? Excellent stuff.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2011
Bottled. A hazy dark red beer with a lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, alcohol, brettanomyces, caramel, and a bit of wood. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, brettanomyces, wood, grapes, and caramel, leading to a tart finish. Thanks pinball for sharing.

Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours an almost clear reddish brown with a creamy beige head. Sweet rotten fruit in the nose combined with farty Brett and a slight tartness. Medium body, sweet woody fruitiness, minerals, overripe swwet fruits "noble rot", some Sherry. No real bitterness but a slight Bretty tartness. Very sophisticated, very pleasant. 130711
