shoulderbroken (2850) - 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.

mateuszk (1045) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 28, 2015
Draught. Yellow, no head. Aroma of barnyard, gooseberry, ripe sour fruits, citrus. In taste medium to high sourness, barnyard and zest, citrus fruits. Not much gooseberry in taste though it is still one od the best Spontans.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Erzengel (5644) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2015
Sour fruity nose. More horse-blanket than fruit. The beer starts very tart and sour. Horse-blanket is on the top, but the sour Gooseberry is there as well, but not dominating the picture. Nice tart and complex body, sourish and fresh Gooseberry together with nice sour and wet-woody horse-blanket. Fruity-fresh aftertaste that lasts long, very interesting but refreshing combination on a very sour but complex body. Nice!
