Scopey (7437) - 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....

The aroma is like that of champagne in many ways. It also has some apple notes. As I sip, I taste some caramel malt. The sourness is present but not overwhelming. A truly excellent beer!

tectactoe (2337) - Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle: Hazy orange body, slightly soapy & foamy eggshell cap that fades to a collar quickly. Aroma of sweaty & tart peach notes, orange, moderately sour gooseberry, pineapple, a touch of barn-like funk, & a very light touch of malty sweetness hidden in the very back. Earthy & Brett forward flavor. Mild horsey funk... Very mild, but noticeable. Hints of peach, stone fruit, & slightly tart oranges. Although there is more balancing hoppy, earthy bitterness. Faint kiss of malt sugars with a gooseberry finish, a hint of Bretty cotton funk. Pretty nice.

Koelschtrinker (11056) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 8, 2014
Säuerlicher, dunkel malziger Antrunk. Zur Mitte hin etwas trocken, dumpf säuerlich. Süffig, leicht herb, zum Ende stärker. Das dunkle Malz bleibt, nett. 9/9/9/9/7/9

SinH4 (274) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 5, 2014
The best one. The funkiness and barnyard feeling is immediately there, the sourness is very reluctant. Not as sour as I had expected though. Probably the malts are too heavy compared to a real Lambic. This series was very interesting!

Gorm (1464) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2014
Klar lys gyllen farve med lyst skum. Lukt av malt og frukt. Smak av malt, frukt og gjær. Bittersøt avlutning. Tap @ Melkebaren.

nilsas (1726) - Bryne, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2014
Søtlig duft av frukter, krydder og brød. Fin gyllen honning farge. Dekkende skum, heng langs kant. Smak av sursøte frukter og krydder.

cards04 (1847) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Overall a really unique beer. Pours a lovely orange marmalade color. Aromas are wild. Funk, horse blanket, citrus, tropical fruit. Awesome. Flavors are full of Brett and funk with a touch of sour. Overall a really neat beer.

b3shine (5844) - Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle to snifter. Looks solid; a transparent copper with foamy off-white head and lively carbonation. Smells of pale malt and old hops with a notable brett presence that would probably be better in their sum fresh. Tastes like it smells, but more robust, with a medium-bodied semi-dry mouthfeel. Tastes more complex than it smells at this point.

slowrunner77 (6090) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2014
"Murky pale amber. Easily the best smelling of the bunch - funky as all get out. At first, I liked the flavor of the weaker aroma lambicus better, but in the end, this was the clear winner."

Marheb (2302) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2014
Astringent, cuiré, acidulé, kiwi, pamplemousse, olive. Bête étrange passé son apogée.
