3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ Steve_0’s palace. This probably should be reclassified as a Gueuze. It’s blended and no fruit is offered. Pours a bit hazy golden appearance with a white head. Super fucken cheesy and funky nose. Barnyard, cobweb, very good aroma. A touch sweet, cracker, doughy flavor. Fairly lactic, kind of young. Sort of thick mouth feel. Loved the aroma. Disappointed by the rest.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted on 2/20/14 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at Healthy Spirits. Pours hazy bright orange with an average white head that slowly recedes, leaving an average collar of lace. The nose is sour with a bit of a floral aroma, a hint of light malt and a hint of sulfur. The flavor is the same lemon sour with a floral touch and some very dry, almost nutty funk, and the sulfur on the back. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long sour and nutty brett funk finish.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
near tepid gold, transparent. Sugar and grass nose, spritzy with light toast, no sourness evident. Grassy and grain front palate, even more mid with heavy dough and way excessive esters, light gum and petals in the finish. Sour in no way, fuller, effervescent body belies intent. Mikkeller...
