3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Gusher, pours hazy amber with a large airy off white head that fades quickly to a wispy film. Aroma is tart sour spearmint and funk with a subtle scent of sugary fruit. Taste is funk sour tartness some stinky cheese and rotten fruit of apple/cranberries and more spearmint. Palate is thin to medium with a ton of carbonation and a drying lactic finish. This is mellow, but sharp in the way that it finishes.

Flaske (gave fra Asle Bjørn) delt med Ovesen i solskinnet en bryggerisøndag i oktober: aroma av tyttebær (no surprise there) og silohøy. Tørr, frisk og med en slank og elegant kropp som gjør den eminent nytbar.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 8% and it has a spot for a date to be printed but it was not filled in.
Appearance: The body has a woody brownish color and a heavy cloudy haze. On top it sports a light tan head with specks of tan yeast sediment. This tall loose packed head settles down to a small cap of foam that hangs on well and makes for some spotty/slick lacing on the glass.
Smell: There is a tart, almost currant like character to the aroma.
Taste/Palate: A pleasant tartness slides across the palate and brings notes of sweet/tart berry, currant and as it warms cider like tart green apple. This tart fruity character sits up on a base of dry bready and yeast notes with a touch of earthy funk. It finishes dry and pleasantly tart with a very slight touch of spice.
Notes: My overall feeling on this beer is simply, F-ing A this is a tasty beer!

Nice red to brown body, offwhite head. Aroma has berries, lots of sourness, spices, lingoberry and cranberry, red wine, horse sweat. Excellent comlexicity. Flavour has sour candy and berries, some brettanomyces. Thin and when warms it becomes bit floury and yeasty. Much lambicy.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. #337. Bottled 30/01/08. BB 30/01/18. (Fish & Beer) Copenhagen, Denmark.
Hazy brown colour with a small greyish light brown colour. Came gushing out of the bottle. The aroma is deliciously brettanomyces infused. The flavour is sourness, tartness, mild sweetness, bretta, manure and some berries.
This is very interesting brew. Lambic-likeness is very evident.
