bursprak (481) - Aarhus, - DEC 26, 2013
375 ml bottle @ home. Pours hazy golden with a small off white head. Aroma is tart, sour with some citrus. Taste is nicely balanced and not as acidic as other Mikkeller spontan's. Nice dry ending with the elderflower coming through.

TBone (12538) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle 375ml at Beer Hunters. Hazy orange color, not much head. Sour, "flowery" aroma. Light-bodied. Very tart flavor, flowery. Pleasant and simple.

Alexd8 (21) - Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
Couleur blanc-vert, mousse quasi-inexistante, on s’attend presque à une bière sans gaz carbonique. Le passage en fut ressort, mais pas méchant du tout. Un nez extrêmement vineux. On se demande même quel résultat cela donnerait à déguster cette bière à l’aveugle à côté d’un Pinot Noir Bourguignon. Car le nez à tout de cela. Les épices et le sous-bois, le fruité et la violette nous rappelle certains Côte-de-Nuits. La bouche est sèche, sûre et acidulé tout en restant sous le signe de la vigne. L’umami enchante et ressort en rétro sous couvert de champignon et de levure. Ultra-rafraîchissante. Même dangereuse! Révélation pour le sommelier que je suis, c’est cette bière qui m’a donné le goût d’approfondir un monde que je ne faisais qu’effleurer. Le lien en les Brettes des vins natures et des bières en fermentation spontané a aidé. Dégusté en excellente compagnie, mon ami artisan-brasseur Gabriel Girard Bernier a fait de ce moment quelque chose de magique.

mathieuc (1225) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2014
Pours a good golden with a thin and fast to leave head that doesn’t leave much lacing. Nose is not quite of dill pickles like most other elderflower beers I’ve had, this time it is more floral, spicy and a little buttery. Taste is also lightly buttery, tart but less than I expected and full of wheat or at least sweet cereals/flour. Body is light to medium, carbonation just medium. Overall this wasn’t unpleasant but not the best in the serie for sure!

mcberko (6260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of elderflowers, with a little funk. Flavour is lively and complex, with lots of flowery notes, a touch of funk, and leather. Nice balance between the elderflower and funky qualities. Very nice, but not one of the better Spontan beers.

tom10101 (2699) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle (375 ml). As SpontanElderflower. Slightly hazy golden/orange with a small quickly disappearing white head and no lacing. Aroma is quite floral with hay, light sourness and hints of sweetness. Taste is quite floral and slightly sour with oak, hay, light sweetness, hints of berries and light alcohol. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry and acrid finish. Interesting Elderflower lambic. The aroma is enticing and if it was not of the acrid finish, it would be pretty good.

djd07 (3468) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a cloudy gold with small frothy white head. The aroma is clean funk aroma, elderflower, and grain. Thin mouthfeel with a nice funk, and light sourness.

kramer (4894) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold body with a small fizY white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is pretty beautiful, a nice floral note, a light funky yeastiness, some light oaky notes. The flavor is nice and funky with a light oaky dryness on the back end. I get a bit of Cheerios like cereal grain note on the finish that I don’t care for all that much though. Otherwise, I do like the elderflower flavoring. Pretty nice stuff, not up with my favorites of the style, but enjoyable.

Nez magnfique de fruits et de brett, avec une légère pointe florale. Bouche très équilibrée avec une finale légèrement grillés. Excellente bière
