3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden orange with a thick white head. The nose is Brett earthy soil, lemon, leather and apples. The taste is high sweet and low bitter with only a hint of tart. This needs more time. The texture is like pop rocks. Way overcarbonated. The body is light and finish is long.

Fruity and thick takes some getting used to and stays on your tongue for a while. Definitely one and done per sitting but well worth it

Top blows off the top when u remove the metal top, golden colour with a little bit of haze, aroma is sharp grass, wood decomposing undergrowth. Taste is really wild yeast, classic Belgium spice, over ripe banana. Touch of sweet oak on the end, scary but nice

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl bottle from Appellation Wines and opened by unstablefable who almost lost an eye as the cork shot over our shoulders. Pours a golden colour with a little bit of haze and an enormous head - see earlier gushing comment. The nose has grass, woodiness and undergrowth. The taste has more fresh grass, this time with spice and some overripe banana. The palate has a really big structure, though the texture is quite tight and there is a long refreshing but still powerful finish. I like this a lot.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big pop when opened pours hazy golden with huge light and tightly structured white head, Nose is complex, balanced, and subtle layers of traditional golden ale apples and pears over honey malt with soft funky fruit, kiwi, and light red wine barrel, Taste follows with added dense layer of sweetness, not overpowering, but evident, more carbonation in the mouth rather than on the pour would be nice to carry the sweetness, but acidic notes do help out, Overall, another solid offering from odellís sour program, not mind blowing, but loaded with subtle nuances

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear, reddish straw. Fruity esters on the nose with a slight funk as well. The esters give way to sweet, grapelike qualities in the middle. Finishes tart and winey.
