3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange in color with a white head. The nose is musty and much more funky than the Brett Brux version. A bit sweaty, some lemon, grapefruit, bread, and grass. Interesting blend of sweet, funk, and tart on the palate. Lemon zest, grapefruit, musty funk, earth, sweat, and sweet bread. A little bit of yeast, a dry finish, and grass.

33 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori, BBE 04.12.2014
Aroma is somewhat stale with urinal cake, fruity hops, grapefruit and gooseberry bush. Flavour has grapefruit, biscuits, gooseberry bush and some nettles. Hard to note the bretta aromas here, perhaps some leathery notes in the aftertaste and hints of urinal cake.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Semicloudy golden. Offwhite head. Not as intense aroma as the brux version. Still sour fruity aroma, but this one feels sweeter. Taste is also alot ’kinder’ to us non-hardcore-sourale-drinkers. Sweet and fruity, better than the three others I tried (lager, saison and brux)
