Fat på mikkeller and friends - grumlig och ljus med vitt skum. Interessant doft som påminner lite om godis. Väldigt syrlig och något besk.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle and served in tulip while doing some light reading of Wild Brews:
Nowhere does it include goose berries as a popular addition to sour’d ales. ;-) Really this is more about the Brettanomyces and Pediococcus than the fruit. Solid enough pils and wheat backbone. Problem is the presence of 4-ethyl-phenol (aka Band-Aid) which lingers on far too long and is an issue with many Mikkeller sours. This could mature and smooth the rough edges but I wouldn’t hold out hope.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Picked one up in Chicago. Pours a bright yellow orange color that looks very quenching. A foamy white layer is left on too with heavy bubbles. A big vinegar tart aroma that is very funky. A very funky taste right away. Very nice mouthfeel that is quenching and tart. It’s very gueuze like. Very tasty. And definitely left me wanting more.
