NosirIwont (1890) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2014
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.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2014
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

bursprak (289) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2013
375 ml bottle. Pours murky golden with a minimal head. Aroma is vinegar, funk and hints of grape. Taste is nicely balanced funk and hops with the grapes coming out in the end.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle from BOE, split with JF at the pre 5K tasting, 12/11/13. Hazed golden amber with a good sized off white covering. Nose is dank wood, grape skin, apple core, musty, lemon rind. Taste comprises dry rot, earthy wood, soured grapes, apple skins, lemon rind, funky straw. Medium bodied, light spritzy carbs, keeps it drinking well. Nice sour.

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 22, 2013
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.
