bursprak (674) - 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.

4oz pour at Churchkey’s Night of the Living Ales 2014. Pours a clear gold with some cloudy, white head. Nose has a big punch of funk, chivey, a little feety, grassy, floral. Flavor is grassy, herbal, punchy chive, mild funk, lemon rind. Lemony, tart finish.

floydian1 (1015) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 16, 2014
Tap @ Mikkeller basement beer bar, Vesterbros, Copenhagen (not many better places to commemorate my 1000th RB rating!) this one pours hazy pale amber with a transient loose white head . The nose and flavour has lambic funkiness with added fruitiness (apricots, lemons, orange + elderflower) to attenuate the lactic sourness. Nice crisp tart dryish finish. Excellent.

Gurthnar (1974) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 16, 2014
Tap at Urban House. Aroma bretty funk in foreground, light elderflower in the background. Clear deep golden colour. Small inferior head. Rather straightforward in taste, showing simple brett character and some elderflower. Lacks complexity, but that does not make it bad beer. Overall it is very good, not too sour. Palateable, sessionable.

Cuso (4795) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 16, 2014
Tap at Urban Space, Bratislava. Deep golden color with thick white head. Tart fruity aroma with elderflowers, lemon. Tart taste with lemon, peaches, yeast, earthy funk. Dry finish.bit disappointed after promising aroma, but overall refreshing beer.

Luk_ (197) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
Clear blond with low head. Aroma is distinctive elderflowers as it reminds me of Cantillon Mamouche. Very peppery, funky and woody also. Taste is moderate sourness, light vinegar some spices, sweet fruits and wood. Nice elderflower showcase but not as well integrated as Cantillon’s version of course.
