3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly red tint to an otherwise amberish pour. Small white head that leaves no lacing behind. Big vegetal and acetic aroma. Same with the taste. Very tart, and funky. Vinegar taste. A bit dry, and very tart. Nice, but I really don’t get any currants.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle shared by deyholla. Thanks, dude! Pours a reddish glowing hue, healthy haziness, frothy head dissipates to a film and laces small. Aromas offer tart berry and lemon, touches of red fruit, hay, straw. Gentle brett, oaky qualities, lactic and yogurty feel.. A bit more muted and a touch of sweetness. Initial is still pretty sour, lemon and lactic qualities take over still. Red fruit, berry, and currant give a firm sour feel. A touch of sweetness, bretty, a bit dry and oaky as we move on. Mellow sweetness makes this a bit more palatable than the Cranberry for most. Although, I just find that one more striking. Well balanced, tasty. Good wild yeast play, oak and vanilla, straw and gentle dry bread. Nice one here.
