solidfunk (3902) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 4, 2014
A little better than the Brussels bretta version. More of a palate and mouthful here with that astringent, bittersweet grapefruit lambic flavour. Nice yeast, and it’s cool that the hops still show up in enough quality to be detected here. Citrus hops and a little malt. Well-balanced. Great pale ale on wild side. Tap at Churchkey.

skoisirius (1634) - Earth, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Can’t say this one really did anything for me, sadly. Bottled. Looks like a pale ale. Smells like a slightly bretted pale ale. Drinks like a watery slightly bretted weak pale ale. Could’ve been a lot better.

Draft @Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade. A layer of blond bubbles, atop a hazed bright gold colored body. Lemon and light funk, hay and grass to the nose. Taste is much the same, with some malt-sweetness underneath, and an additional grassy and light piney bitterness. Light to medium body. Prickling carbonation. Grassy bitterness and tart lemon tones in the ending. [21.07.13]

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2014 ----Caña en el Lupulo 21 y 22-12-13 durante su tercer y cuarto día de pinchado. Sabores algo afrutados cereza, guinda y algo de frutas tropicales seguido de maltas y un toque final ácido ligero. Cuerpo ligero fácil de beber. Buena, bastante buena. 6-3-6-4-13- 3.2 ---- Botella de 33 cl de 2d2dspuma. Tomada en 26-02-2014 en el momento y con caducidad para 04-12-2014. Color ámbar bastante oscuro con espuma blanca muy intensa al principio y ligeramente persistente luego. Bastante bien de gas. Cuerpo medio con 6.4 vol. Aromas bastante afrutados de frutas tropicales y maltas. Sabores afrutados mas contenidos, ligeramente ácidos con un final amargo también ligero. Incremento de los toques maltosoa según va calentando. Bastante buena, muy interesante, no tan ácida como la caña y con sabores maltosos mas contrastados y en conjunto mas equilibrada. Mejor que la caña por un poco.
