GenDV138 (2440) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle (2013) at Redlight Redlight the night before RBWG 2015 shared by Travlr, thanks Gene! Clear straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of vinegar, orange, bandage, floral notes. Tastes of orange, tart acidic notes, buttered popcorn. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Probably was better fresh without the off flavors.

Travlr (14179) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle at Redlight Redlight shared with GenDV138 and jcwattsrugger, cheers! Hazy very pale yellow color. Aroma of stinky feet, umbilicus and fruit. Taste is funky, stinky, sweaty animals gathered around piles io rotted oranges. Really delicious if you like that sort of thing.

Bov (9964) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 11, 2015
from Erzbierschof Bern - translucide bronze-orange beer with a moderate foam left; cheesy fruity vinegar-like notes with hints of barnyard in the front; notes of tangerines and oranges appear below; juicy, light sticky and full-bodied, very dry and solidly sourish, more long notes of barnyard in the finish still stronger than the fruits

maley1 (840) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
Slightly cloudy amber pour with small white head. Aroma of citrus, oranges, grapefruit, yeast and sour funk. Taste of yeast, lemony citrus, sweet mandarin orange, lactic sourness, grapefruit rind. Some sweet orange flavour peeking throuh the sourness, very good.

ClubGonzo (4370) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2015
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Clear orange-golden body with a medium white head. Nose is sour lemony tones, straw, hay, lactic sourness, mandarines and hints of red berries and barnyard funk. Taste is tart citric tones, lactic sour notes, hay, bitter herbs, mandarines and hints of barnyard funk and lemon zest. Light body, high carbonation. Really nice and clean lambic with a noticable citric/mandarine profile. Very drinkable.

shoulderbroken (2379) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 16, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2015 Tap at Earl of Essex. Smells good, but difficult to find the fruit. Funky and skunky, citrus. Taste is nice, lots of sourness, with maybe the mandarin hidden in there. Good authentic earthy funkiness. Maybe get more fruit further down, but was very excited about trying this beer, but itís a little disappointing. Rerate from a 2013 bottle. More fruit it seems. Nice sourness but the mandarin is definitely there. Nice.

Leighton (12615) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Keg at the Earl of Essex - London. Pours clear yellow with a lasting, creamy top. The nose holds grass, rindy lemon, some moldy wood, basement. Light sweet flavor with nice grassy bitterness, some ripening lemon and tangerine, dry wood. Medium to full bodied with average, active carbonation. Nicely balanced finish with present funk, more bitter grass, old wood, citrus rind, lightly tangy lemon. Good stuff.

Klimaet (396) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy orange with a shortlasting big bubbly white head. Aromas of green apples, orange peel, mandarin, some floral notes, vinegar. Taste is pretty tart up front, green apples, orange peel, some darker ripe orangey notes, vinegar, some funkyness. Sadly Iím not getting very longlasting flavours right now. Runny nose is runny. Still tastes really refreshing and clean.
