Bottle from Marcus as SpontanWhiteGrape. Pours translucent gold with a creamy white head. Lactic aroma. With white grapes. :) Near med body. Flavor is lactic/sweat sox with some white grape. Amazing how that works. Actually suggests grapefruit rind if one relaxes. Quite tasty.

En av de sämre spontanarna från Mikkeller må jag säga. Dock fint grapeinslag.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (375 ml). From Kevin, thanks a lot Sir! Clear bright golden with a small quickly diminishing white head and no lacing. Aroma is of grapes, funk, leather, wood, green apples (in a good way) and wood. Taste is moderately sour/acidic with funk, grapes, green apples, wood and hay. Dry. Light body. Medium carbonation. This is very good and taste pretty much like a Belgian Lambic. Dry, refreshing, quenching and complex.

Bouteille 375 ml, partagée par Tom10101, merci! Robe dorée claire. Le collet blanc disparaît rapidement. Arôme: raison, levures, rustique. Au goût, une bonne acidité fruitée rafraichissante. Très intéressante!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’m not a fan of sours whatsoever, but found this just about drinkable. Pours almost an orange color, light sour taste with fruit punch. Strange beer-not one I’d order another of, not awful but kind of ’interesting’. I guess I appreciate the fact they’re trying something and it nearly works for me....but not quite!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
375 ml bottle. Pretty clear, dark golden body with floaters and a big white head. Aroma is relatively moderate funky with some citric fruit and a hint of grapes. Flavor is sour and refreshing, slightly tart with light funk and fruit with hints of grapes. Fine body and acidic aftertaste with a light wooden kind of bitterness. Refreshing and nice, but lacks the complexity of a fine Belgium lambic.
