4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Flaska 75 cl systembolaget. Orangebrun kulör med stort fluffigt skum. Fuktig doft av apelsin, citron, druvor, halm och funk. Komplex smak med funkkänsla. Stall, hö och jordkällare. Citrus, vitt vin och fat. Härlig syrlighet och fint krispigt torr. Mycket kolsyra och alkoholstyrkan döljs väl.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle; at home; courtesy of madmitch76 (the legend). 750ml bottle. Vigorous pour into my IPA glass-of-choice. A nice head. Lovely head. Ruby-ish dark appearance. Very murky. Opaque.
Aroma is; oak; woodchips; brett; musty wood; grapes; Nelson and a lot of bready yeast. I think it is slightly oxidised but that is not a problem as it is heavy with brett. Very damp wet grass aroma as well.
Taste is orange tart; citric juice. Scilian lemons. grapefruit; white grapes; Finnish rye bread; farmhouse funk and sour and tart overtones. The brett works wonders with Nelson and really dances off my tongue. It’s well-carbonated and definitely a sipper. Alcohol is also prominent but not ott. There is a good amount of balance for such a complicated beer.
The drinkability is what surprises me the most about this beer. It is definitely a nod to Orval levels of thirst-quenching despite its relatively high abv. I would like to see different barrels on this one as it is an incredibly good beer. Superb work Mikkel!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Dark brown, ruddy copper body with a thin, bubbly, khaki colored film on top. Aroma is very wine-like & vinous. White & red grape with notes of darker fruits, plums, prunes & a light tartness with a hint of booze behind everything. Flavor is a bit nutty & almost toasty, although still very vinous & wine forward. Slightly warming booze, earthy hop notes, red licorice, mild woody elements towards the finish with a little bit of semi-spicy Belgian yeast making for a mostly clean finish. Bubbly mouth feel, aftertaste of dark fruit & faint red wine. Good, but I didn’t love it like I thought I would.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 2014 edition. Hazy orange, big frothy white head. Beautiful! Packed with grapes, subtle funky leather, flowery brett and dry white wine notes with peach and mandarin, orange and melon. It really is amazingly complex, delicate and subtle. Taste is also packed with bretty and grapy goodness, very dry and loaded with fruits and berries, almost perfect balance, nothing seems misplaced. The body and carbonation are really well aligned.

"what a great beer! hoppy, fruity, oak, white wine grapes, and a little funk all come through in about equal measure. Each sip was a delight. Lively body and a nice dry finish."
