Marheb (2001) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
(Bouteille achetée il y a deux ans au west lakeview liquor store): Un liquide orangé croustillant avec une belle mousse éphémère. Le nez est particulièrement herbacé avec une croute de pumpernickel insistante et une effluve parfûmée, vraiment unique. En bouche c’est le noyau de pamplemousse, le pain et les esters de levure qui dominent. L’ensemble est principalement surette, un peu bretteux et très légèrement acétique. Buvabilité comtemplative.

Bottle at Mikkeller Bar shared with Theis and Borresteijn. It pours clear deep golden with a medium white head. The aroma is woody and sour with fruity notes. Dry and fruity flavour with notes of wood oak and acid. Very noce and balanced. By far the best sour from Mikkeller so far!!
