4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, at Manneken Beer, Pamplona,, Spain. Belgian yeast and brett dominates the aroma with lemon peel and herbs. I like what I smell. Flavor has more tartness, with lemon and brett. Very tasty, smooth, and balanced. Very good.

Some fruit and pleasant funkiness here, but this is far too much on the vinergar side to be pleasant. Sorry, try again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very very interesting. Soured nose with a bit of citrus. Pour is with lots of head and copper tone. Taste and mouhtfeel a bit thin and one-sided. This has sat well though since the summer... nice beer, and an interesting take.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Honey gold with stiff off-white meringue foam.
Big white wine vinegar Brett nose with not much else.
Bread and a bit of caramel, lots of lemon rind when it opens, a huge funky hit, some white pepper and lots of herbal hops.
Ricola finish and oily herbal linger. Light, fizzy, crisp.
A cinnamon saison? There is a woody spice warmth in there but it just gets pounded by the funk, which is harsh and out of balance. Eases a lot and gains citrus as it warms but still not refreshing like the style should be.

Bottle at Pension Ondarra, San Sebastian. Clear golden - high high white head. Aroma is pretty sour - but the taste isn’t that bad. Fruity, orange notes, some spiciness, ok hoppy, grassy notes, some sharpness, ok.

330ml bottle. Tart, grape and fruity aromas. Develops a massive white head, dense and persistent, molasses, with poor lacing. Light body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is tart, grape, some alcohol notes, and slightly bitter. Not very good balanced. Peculiar one.
