Scopey (6711) - Croydon, Greater London, - FEB 1, 2013
Tap at Mikkeller. It pours clear amber with a small fizzy white head. The nose is wood, earth, touch of sweetness, lemon, funk, light vomit and a touch of spice. The taste is earth, mustiness, sharp, mould, wet wood, blue cheese aspect and grapefruit with a dry, tart finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Ok, but I can’t say I love it....

Bottle at home. Pours golden, quite interesting, sweet toffee, fruity, light sourness from the yeast, refreshing.

Kosmokrator (475) - ITALY - AUG 12, 2014
Limpido color ambra con saponoso cappello di schiuma beige. Al naso sentori di frutta matura (pesche, albicocche), toffee ed un delicato tocco acetico; gusto in bilico tra acidulo e dolciastro con note di caramello, frutta, malto e acido acetico. Corpo medio, struttura leggermente oleosa, effervescenza nella norma. La vena "selvaggia" e acida è ben bilanciata dalla controparte fruttata; buona!

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 (2716) - 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.

rejtable (1270) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
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.

mentalmind (32) - FINLAND - MAY 24, 2014
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.
