3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks man! Pour is hazy orange with a small white head and great lacing. Cheesy, waxy, musty, onion, almost garlic, rotten fruit, and woody aroma. Taste is tart lemon, biscuity, green apples, pears, vegetal, woody, earthy, and cheesy with a dry funky finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Really weird beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ Steve_0’s palace. Thanks! Pours a kind of a murky orange appearance with an off white head. Woody / sappy, grassy, lemony, weird aroma. Kind of juicy and actually a bit acetic. Woody / herbal, twangy woody, sour flavor. Not too grate. Glad I’m not on the Dr. Oz diet.

Bottle bought in Copenhagen, October 2013.
Hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma and taste of funk, hay, berries and wood. A nice sourness in this one. The finish was dry. A nice one.

@Gyllenbock: Fantastisk syrlighet. Trevlig fruktighet, härligt frisk och fräsch. Havtornen lite dold men en mycket god sak.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazed golden amber sour ale with a thin white head. In aroma, pleasant fruity malt with lactic acid notes, cork, horse blanket, ground cherries, very nice. In mouth, a smooth fruity lactic acid malt with sour fruits, cherries, acetic acid, puckering yet good. On tap at Real a Gastropub.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 21.02.2014, 0,375l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly sour-ish, sour socks, citrus peel, sorrel, something sweet citrusy, lemon, hay, oak. Taste is acidic and slightly dry, lemon, citrus peel, sorrel, oak, grapefruit, oak. Slightly metallic mouthfeel. Nice, finally a beer in the Spontan series that’s actually sour, and not only sour-wannabe.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
hazy orange-hay, lasting thin white head. Funky earth and saddle nose, sweat and light grass, very singular yet soft. Punchy sourness up front, soft grass and yeast mid with burning acid still present, caustic apricot, jowl locking through hot finish, tons of sourness in the slick body, lower carbonation maintains muted impression, bit of old cardboard long in the finish. Sourness intense but without messy combos or misplaced effort.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours hazy golden orange with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. fairly present acetic notes upfront, but also persistent citric, strawberry and berry-like esters, moderate to low funk, hint of caramel, minerals - strong iron blood-like presence. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, sharp and tingling finish. the least appreciated yet from this series - in which there are some world class lambics. but this one.. meh.

Bottle at Frantos Beer, Duck & Cake event. Pours Golden with a White head. Sour Lambicy aroma with a strange component. I’m not sure what Sea Buckthorn is but it made for an interesting Spontan. Nice familiar funky Geuze flavours. Delicious.
