ineedbeer (1310) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 5, 2015
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.

Bottle at WTWBA. Hazy light orange pour. Dry and tart / sour. This is pretty damn good.

minutemat (2759) - 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.

Gurthnar (3340) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 24, 2015
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.

shoulderbroken (2951) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 30, 2015
Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Nice funk and sourness, fruity aroma, nice. Fruit doesn’t have much effect on the taste to me so more like a straight spontan. I guess because I always feel I am tasting gooseberry in gueuzes. Nice though.

Taster showing neon yellow with green hues and a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows a lot of intense limbic Brett. The palate is moderately carbonated and light bodied. Extremely tart forward. Slight flavor of berry.
