Almost clear golden/orange. Big oaky lambic sour nose. Taste is tart and acidic with a big burst of lemon citrus. Finishes dry, oak lingers. Very good.

Bottle thanks to my mom! Pours a clear gold with a slight orange hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is quite sour with a decent amount of bitter berry and a light funk underlying. Flavor has a nice sour gooseberry with a bit acid and a light funkiness.

Shared bottle. Pours is cloudy golden with thick white head that lasts only for seconds. Aroma of leather, wet leaves, lemon, citric, acidic and funky. Taste is medium sour with light sweet notes, lemon and light gooseberry mouthfeel. Medium body, flat carbonation, light acidic finish. This citric mouthfeel goes good with lambic style, great beer.

I like beers like this - no idea what to expect before opening it. Poured a nice cloudy amber colour with a bit of sediment to boot. Nose was a little underwhelming but on the palate a nice dry sour style that lingers.

On tap at Mikkeller. Aroma is somewhat acidic with a light citrus note. Moderate gooseberry chaarcrer with some light oak. Light sour cherry and hints of tropical fruit. Pours a hazy, copper with a small thin head that recedes quickly to the edges. No lacing or legs. Flavor is fairly acidic with a moderate citrus note. Quite a bit of gooseberry flavor with some lighter tropical fruit and a bit of sour cherries. Light oak notes and a touch of earthy funk. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer with a good gooseberry character. It’s lacking the oak and earthiness that the Vesterbro had, but its still very drinkable. The gooseberry adds some fruitiness but also some acidity.

minutemat (2911) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2015
375ml bottle from brewdog.com. Pours gold with good white head. Encouragingly fruity aroma. Taste sadly contains little in the way of gooseberries, I really did expect more. Good solid tart sour of course, but not a lot more than that unfortunately.

Bottle at 100 piv. Aroma yeasty, barnyard, funky, fruity. Clear deep golden colour with some sediment. Really tart in flavour, rather tart than sour. Barnyard, funky and... well, gooseberry. Complex but nicely balanced. Very good.
