willisread (615) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a snifter. Deep golden color with a slight haze and huge soapy white head that dissipates but leaves a nice rim around the top of the beer throughout. Nose is lemon, muscat, green apple and gooseberry with some wood and hay present. Quite tart on the palate but the fruit nuance doesn’t get lost in the tartness. Great active carbonation (very gueuze-like). The palate has some apple that stands out along with some plum. The gooseberry is there too though in the finish. Very nice prickly tart finish that lingers, and lingers and lingers. Great stuff!

thirdeye11 (5739) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2015
(Draught) cloudy medium orange, fine offwhite bubbles and nice lacing. Nose is more gueuze like than the others in the Spontan sours, seems less influenced by the fruit, oak, earth, toasty wood, complex bugs, stone fruit. Taste is rather unique in the series also, oak, tart stonefruit, apricot and leach, medium dryness and fairly well carbonated.

375 mL bottle poured and shared. Thanks for picking this up T! Pours a bright orange color with a thin patch head. Sour fruit and slight yeast aroma. Funky fruit flavor with grape, cherry, apple and mixed berry. Obvious yeast funk presence. Very nice tart flavor throughout. Very well done.

Franckg (386) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015
Version 2013, bue après 24 mois. Robe orangée foncée, beaucoup de grumeaux. Pas de mousse excepté un cercle autour du verre. Arômes de levures sauvages bien surettes, chêne, fruits acidulés et un léger côté sucré. Par contre difficile de savoir que c’est des groseilles. En bouche, un goût bien fruité et suret de jeunes baies envahit le palais. L’acidité se propage et grossit avant de s’aténuer rapidement et laisser la place à un goût de chair de fruit comme la pomme verte et de chêne. Finale brève.

finol (2396) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2015
Draught at Mikkeller Victoria. Pours hazy golden. Fruity aroma of Apple and lambic. Sour taste of gooseberry, green apple and some barnyard. Taste more authentic/less well adjusted than most Mikkeller spontan

angel77 (1283) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2015
Botella de 37.5 Cl de cervezalandia, tomada en el momento el 11-05-2015 en Belmonte. (r176). Sabores y aromas ácidos con ligeros toques de maderas y cítricos acabando con algo de amargo bien integrado con la acidez, similar en sabores a las demás de la serie. Bastante buena en su estilo.

larsga (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2015
Small white head doesn’t last. Hazy coppery body. Spicy fruity waxy aroma with rhubarb notes. Dry-acidic metallic waxy funky taste with earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry-acidic spicy wild berry aftertaste with funky earthy notes. Nice, drinkable. Delicate. Rather like a geuze. (0.375l bottle, shared by Ole_R.)
