4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Mogwai. Helsingborg, December 2011.
Sourish and tart aroma of white wine, grapes, apples, citurs fruits and melon. Very refreshing with some hoppy notes. I love the funky brett character in this beer. The crisp body and the rich taste is fantastic.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I drank this beast by myself while playing PS3. Quickly too - it affected my gaming abilities - always a positive. Sedimented very deep opaque golden. Smallish fading white head. Highly aromatic ale with a basket of tropical fruits and delicious juicy white grape touches that are attractive and contributing much complexity. Surprisingly tannic, tea-like hops do provide an interesting counterpoint where the grape would naturally call for acidity. I was going to stop describing it here but the nose is like no other I have smelled; very white vinous, typical gooseberry, dry flowers, light resinous pine, bretty funk, some, kiwi, and faint toasted vanilla. The flavor is similar with some buttery oak, faint toasted vanilla notes, similar fruity notes as the nose, dry floral and leaves, light pine, tart brett, and just a bit of funk; the bitterness is more than moderate as well as the acidity. The palate is moderate, less than lively, creamy, and bone dry. The finish is longer than expected, bone dry, slightly bitter, tart acidity, leafy notes, and a bit resinous.
This was really unique and really pretty good. In retrospect I should have shared it. Oh well.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In bottle. Pours a golden brown colour with a thick beige head. A big Brett aroma with white wine, oak, passion fruit and leather. Similar flavours. Mildly bitter with lingering oak and passion fruit again. Quite vinous with heavy carbonation with a foamy mouth-feel. Lovely.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big lambic nose like a barnyard. some wine notes in the nose
Pours amber and cloudy. big 1.5" head. Notes of wine, lemon,and sour aplle flavours with a carmelly malt and a big hop finish. Sour lambic flavours disguise the alcohol until it hits the back of your throat. Not a huge lambic fan but this is a pretty good one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml corked bottle pours a cloudy amber color with 2 fingers of off-white head that leaves some spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel malts and some yeast with some fruit. Taste is light fruity and malty sweetness with some light bitter hops and some sourness in the finish. Medium body and adequate carbonation leave a nice tingle. Not quite what I was expecting.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a murky dark amber. Aroma is huge; pineapple, guava, kiwi, lemon, lime, all your typical Southern Hemisphere Sauvignon grape aromas, mixed with a great brett funkyness. This all flows through to the taste, with a great carbonation, sweetness, tart cooking apple & acidity. Finish is dry, acidic and fruity. An amazing beer!
