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.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Bottle... Pours hazy and amber with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The aroma features breadiness, dust and pear. Medium to full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor is bready, lightly tart and a hint citric with a yeasty, lightly bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

Beersiveknown (5001) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 10, 2015
keg at LE Fleur de Malts Paris
(not sure if this unretired, hops tasted pretty fresh)
stale, earthy, hay and peach aromas on the nose. moderate body and carbonation, fruity, flinty, fairly pithy bitterness, complex, v easy drinking. A real display of what can bring to a beer.

benfergy (246) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - DEC 13, 2014
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 (3125) - 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 (16811) - 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 (2573) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - 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!

Søtlig duft av frukter, krydder og brød. Fin gyllen honning farge. Dekkende skum, heng langs kant. Smak av sursøte frukter og krydder.

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.
