Second in a series of three, with Zach and Brandon, pours a burnt orange color with a small cream colored head. Nose is very different tart and a bit sour but not overwhelmingly so. Taste is slightly tart, and earthy. Finishes on slightly sour and tart acidic notes with a long duration. What a difference a day , I mean yeast makes. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Bottle tried along with the 2.0 series Saison and American style. Pours orange with a white head and aroma of fruits, citrus, and brett. Taste is sweet, with citrus, hops, grapefruit, and brett with a dry, bitter finish.

Bit of yeasty aroma, not my favourite as I was expecting more fresh scent. Light amber colour. White foam that sticks to the glass. We had a yeast 2.0 lager as a comparison. This one has clearly more sour tones and a nice fresh and dry tannin palate although the lager is more bitter than this. Very surprising and nice.

stefannilssons (1472) - SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2014
Det här var en riktigt trevlig öl med tydliga fruktiga, bittra och syrliga inslag. Balansen var fin och kroppen väldigt passande. Slutsats; riktigt god öl.

_angst_ (2854) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2014
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar Stockholm. Pours golden with a small creamy offwhite head that leaves some thick lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is phenolic and funky with sweet dark bread, barnyard, leather, overripe plums, hay, dry soil and pepper corns. Taste is sweet, malty and funky with sweet dark bread, cereal, barnyard, leather, grapefruit rinds and hay. Mouthfeel is dry, round and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and funky with sweet dark bread, hay, leather, grapefruit rinds and barnyard. Meh...

finol (2191) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2014
Draught at Mikkeller Stockholm. Pours reddish amber. Yes, side by side with other products of the series, it probably showcases brett tartness but the brew is way too bitter and malty to be drinkable.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2014
(Draught at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm, 4 Apr 2014) Amber colour with foamy, off-white head. Fruity, yeasty nose with dried fruit, canned fruit, apricots and bretty yeast. Fruity, yeasty taste with notes of dried fruit, canned peaches, apricots, spicy yeast and a gentle bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Lots of yeast character, but not very sour. Well balanced. Nice one.

Tide (1809) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 23, 2014
Bottle at Ølhus Stockholm. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with hops, caramel, earthy notes, fruits and resin. Bitter finish with citrus, caramel and earthy notes. Good brew, but not particularly shining example of brettanomyces.
