I see why they call it a wild ale. There’s a little bit of every taste in there - citrus, spice, apple, yeasty funk. Lightly carbonated. Not crazy about it.

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle at home, thanks to JF, 29/03/14. Hazed dark amber chestnut brown with a big old light beige covering that retains well. Nose is dark fruits, toffee, light spice, damp wood notes, faint herbal. Taste comprises ripe dark fruit, woody, good bretty twang, toffee, dank straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok sour, nice easy drinker but little complexity, solid brett licks tho’.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2014
Clear amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of candy, malts, yeast and brett. Bitter flavour, honey, malts, light brett. Bitter, malty finish. Nice, bit reminiscent of Orval.
(from 75cL bottle @ RBBWG III, Gent. Thanks for sharing, DomienS!)

Fin (7029) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle picked up at Dranken Geers, Oostakker, nr Gent, Belgium, Feb’ 2014 consumed at home, Sunday 16th March 2014 Pours a slight reddy amber colour with large sticky small bubbly head. Nicely sour, in fact its quite sweet & sour with an elegant dry finish (don’t know why I said elegant just thought it suited the moment) surprisingly soft mouthfeel, and even a little dark dried fruits noted here amongst the sweet but fruity tang. If you’ve never had a sour/wild ale you could do a lot worse than starting your journey here its a good and very easy drinking sour. I like this. A7 A4 T8 P3 Ov15 3.7

Bottle at Mr Hangover’s Nieuwjaarsborrel, thanks Zer0. Chunky amber pour. Fruity, funky aromas, doughy, light mushrooms. Taste is a tad sour, yeasty, earthy. Palate is slick, light carbonation. Quite messy.

jmgreenuk (3565) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle at Mr Hangover’s 2014 Nieuwjaarsborrel, Den Haag. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is a little skunky citrus fruit and yeast. The flavour is weak sour with a watery veggie light fruit palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not a whole lot going on here and not so good.

MrHangover (2142) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle @ Nieuwjaarsborrel 2014, courtesy of Zer0. Pours a clear amber beer with a big off white head. Aroma has not much going on really, some malts. Nothing noticeable from the fish influences. Flavor is medium sweet, watery mouthfeel. I would honestly say that this is quite a shit beer from Mikkeller. Luckily they don’t make many shit beers.
