Old rating. Slightly disappointed. Not a bad sour, but nothing special. Lots of citrus, funk, tart, and some oak. Medium bodied.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange, medium off-white head, creamy and slow to dissipate, good lacing. Aroma is Brett forward, basement, fruity. Flavor is dry, light tat, fruity in an unusual way - lychee I guess, oak, very light funk. Medium body, high carbonation. Interesting.

Thanks to Sarlacc83 for bringing this to the bottle share - probably a bit too much age on this one, but you never know what will happen. Pours hazy golden orange with an off-white head. The aroma has veggies, much, maltiness, overripe peaches and some sourness that is not the normal type of sourness you’d expect from a sour beer. It has a medium body with a bit of light carbonation. The flavor starts with mush malt, veggies, soured caramel and celery. The finish is a weird malt and sour mix. Can’t all be winners.

Bottle sent by agold. Thanks! Pity this one...was not good. A: Cloudy amber, thick white head. N: Lychee, vegetal nature - particularly spoiled tomatoes, gaprefruit, some wood. T: Lightly sour, more spoiled veggies. M: Light body, carbonation is prickly. O: Absolutely horrible. It gets little better when paired with a salty cheese, and I don’t know if this was just a bad bottle, but gross.

750ml bottle. Poured a golden color with a smaller sized head. Funky, fruity, citrus, and wood. Nice funky tart/sour finish.

Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Clear dark golden color with a thin white head that diminishes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of wood, citrus and brett. Medium body with flavors or tart citrus, funky yeast and oak. The finish is tart lychee and oak. Pretty good overall.

gyllenbock (6201) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle bought at Mikkeller & Friends in April 2014. (my Mikkeller rating 300) Hazy amber/orange with a small white head. Pleasant aroma of lychee, oak, brett and some hay. Similar taste. Nicely tart and with a dryish finish. Quite soft and easy to drink.

@ Gyllenbock 14-10-11: en mycket trevlig syrlig doft med en tydlig ton av lychee och fat. Smaken är tydlig syrlig med en sötaktig underton. Gott. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Pours cloudy orange amcer with tall white head. Aroma of green grapes, apples, lychee, bretta, grass and light hay. Taste is fruity sweet up front followed by medium fruit tart, clear barrel notes in there as well. Body is light and "smoothly crisp" with about average carbonation. Nice, very controlled sour ale.
