From a 375ml bottle @ the Taps in KL. Pours a dark hazy rad with a off beige head. Aroma of dry fruits and yeast. Flavors of dry fruits, grass, yeast, hints of wood. Nice sourness, not sweet, light creaminess, and dry.
Very enjoyable and similar with some true lambics.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375mL bottle at Mikkeller Bar, pours a clear orange amber with a small beige head. Aroma of dry fruity red currants, some stone fruits and some and some light acidity. Flavour is very acidic, with notes of red currant, stone fruits, and medium acidity. Quite complex and on the more acidic side for the Spontan series. Very berry-heavy, with a fruity acidic finish. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Beautiful looking beer. Pours a very vibrant, clear dark orange sort of tangerine colour with a small, firm white head which lasts and leaves some thick spider legs. Nose is predominately very tarty and dry fruits - cranberry, currants, goji berries. Light horse blanket with some sweet lemon zest just behind it all. Taste is a lot tartier than expected. Almost like a very tarty cranberry juice with a sweet lingering finish. Quite refreshing. My missus actually liked this beer. Must be good then!

Bottle shared with friends. Give thanks to Heyta for sending me this gem! I’ve come to love these Spontanale beers from Mikkeller. Most have that perfect balance of sour/sweet and tartness, and this one was no different. A real treat to sip.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by Derek. Thanks! Pours a deep amber color with a pinkish head. Nose is very fruit forward. Juicy with notes of raspberry and currant. Distinct acidity in the nose. On tasting, tart currant jam. Fruit really pops here creating a juicy quality. Quite bitter, likely from the fruit. Clean acidity and dry finish. Really cool stuff.

1st January 2012
Clear orange - amber beer. Pretty little pale peach coloured head. Light crisp palate, semi dry. Sour! About as sour as I can tolerate and still drink without great effort. White grape, white wine vinegar and a little peach. Dry finish with a little lemon.
