Beersiveknown (2771) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle at home from brewdog online
Yeasty light amber with frothy beige lacing. Fruity custard and apricot pits. Full bodied, low carbonation, sharp tartness, fruit sourness but not mouth puckeringly so with a residual jammy finish.

Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is funk, wood, floral. Thin mouthfeel with strong funk, oak, and light dryness.

CanIHave4Beers (3182) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a hazy golden, sort of orange like with a smallish head that fades into a fairly informal thing that rests atop the beer.

The aroma is nice, funky but not aggressively so with some bits of apple... but much more like apple flesh than cider for sure. It’s got lemony and musty basement aromas, along with some oakiness.

The flavor is quite tart but only lightly sour. It’s got a nice zingy unripe apple sort of thing happening, which I suppose is what most of the rosehips I’ve tasted are like, so yeah... it’s pretty rose hip forward. The oak character is nice and the beer has a light spicy character.

jookos (1975) - FINLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle@1pint. Orange, light amber. Funky pale malty nose, barnyards, with a distinct red berry, almost sweet. Fruity nose (bit like overripe strawberries, or raspberries). Dry, tart body. Very lambician. This was pretty nice, even compared,to all the other spontaans. I liked the red berryness, made it interesting, much like those strawberry gueuzes.
