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.

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.

Bottle. Clear copper with a medium sized good lacing white head. Aroma has dust, mold, neutral soap, citrus, gooseberries. Pretty light on the palate, light creamy texture, Light dry and bitter finish. I prefer the Bruxellensis version.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2014
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]

Golden brown cloudy with nice white foam. Fruit, citrus with a hint of spice. Malt, toffee, high in bitterness in the aftertaste, grape fruit. The bitterness grows.

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.

glennmastrange (2665) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle. Moderate roasted and biscuit for the malt, light dried flowers for the hops, moderate barnyard for the yeast, with a mix of dried fruit like peach, apple and fig. Head is small, wispy, off-white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is hazy dark amber/orange. Flavor starts faintly sweet and heavily acidic, and finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, dry with a lively o fizzy carbonation and a lightly tart finish. Now that’s a Wild Ale I can handle. Fruity up front and not so tart as to sting the back of the jaw.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2013
Flaske, 33 cl. Let diset ravfarvet med et langtlevende off-white skumhovede. Abrikos, fersken, let syrlig antydning af urinal uden dog at fremstå særligt bretty. Karamel og kaffe-accenter, stenfrugter. Let syrlig, ret bitter slutning. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
