Bottle @ Steve_0’s palace. Pours a hazy golden orange appearance with a white head. Pretty funky, cheesy, lemony / orange fruity aroma. Really tasty, orange citrusy, cheesy / lactic, juicy yet dry flavor. This is one of the better new ones in my opinion.

What seems like a diacetyl finish murders what could have been a decent sour. But if a pricey buttered popcorn brew sounds good to you...

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle (375 ml). Slightly hazy golden/orange with a small white head, low retention and no lacing. Aroma is moslty of mandarins with hints of barnyard and dyacetyl notes. Taste is unfortunately a diacetyl bomb... with mandarins and barnyard hidden behind diacetyl. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish. It’s too bad the the taste is completely ruined by diacetyl, because the other from the Spontan series were good to great and mandarins could fit nicely. Drain pour.
