Tried side by side with the Lambicus. Pours hazy golden orange color with off white head. Aromas of brett and dough with some funkiness. Sour flavor with some doughy yeast. Medium body with average carbonation. I liked this better than the Lambicus.

On tap at Tomahawk Bar 280614. A little funky this one with a musty musky flavour. Not sour but certainly different.

(330ml bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of herbs, melon, grapefruit, horseblanket, Spree candies, and potpourri. Flavor of florals, herbs, earth, brett, orange, and lemon with a dry finish.

tom10101 (2614) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
On tap @ L’Express de Lyon (Mikkeller Tap Takeover). Clear bright copper with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is floral and winey with caramel and some fruitiness. Aroma is of caramel, floral notes, winey notes and sticky bitterness. Medium body. Low carbonation. Woodsy finish. The nose was very promising, but the sticky aftertaste is overpowering and hinder the drinkability.

This wasn’t working for me. On tap at Neighborhood, SD. Pours amber with limted head and lots of lacing. Nose is fruit punch, some iced tea, light sour, something is back there, maybe peach? Taste light sweet, light sour. Light body with lively carbonation.

We had the Mikkeller yeast 2.0 Lager, Lambicus and Bruxellensis for comparison. Aroma is a promise of something good if you love lambic and geuze A hint of vinegar even. Fresh, much better than in yeast Bretanomyces Lambicus. The Lager yeast is not compatable for aroma as it is so different as it should be. Very nice taste and palate, but not quite on the same level with traditional ones from Pajottenland, Belgium.

Copper color, malt+brettanomyces aroma, hops quickly give way to brett, nice and pleasantly sour.

Huhzubendah (2399) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle shared by Dave the dude, Thanks mang! The beer is transparent with a copper body and a towering white head. The aroma brings a healthy amount of brett, earth, mineral scents, sweet, fruity, esters. Mineral flavor with brett and earth and a splash of black pepper. Light caramel malt with some mushroom character. This was fun to drink, but nothing to write home about.
