3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
