3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. 7.7%. Best before 05.05.21. Pours a hazy to cloudy light orange, with a diminishing off-white head. Slight lacing. Sour aroma; some brett. Light fruity notes in the background, but a bit hard to pick up. Increases as it warms though. Flavour is sour with a juicy note (feels a bit like apple juice, for some reason). Earthy. Dry and bitter finish with a touch of alcohol and a lingering sourness ending in an apple note. The bitterness is a grape fruit one; feels a bit unpleasant. Overall so-so. I think it lacks some character, and I’m not that into the bitterness. Still, fairly decent, I guess. 20.02.14.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light amber colour with a good white head. Aroma of grapes, barnyard and oak. The lambic smell is just one of the best. Flavour is really sour, just as it should be! Grapes, green apple, oak and some hints of earthiness. Awesome. Medium and refreshing body with suiting carbonation. Overall a fantastisc beer like the other spontanales from Mikkeller
