4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
