3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[At RBESG 2006] An unclear orange beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet and very spicy, but also with light notes of dust and salt. The flavor is sweet malty - I find it very sweet - and with notes of fruit - especially oranges - but also notes of the salt. I find the combination of fruit and salt very nice. Thanks Phil (MotelPogo) for bringing this.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2007 Draft - Beautiful deep straw golden hazy body, thick whipped cream like head leaving a thick layer of lacing all the way down the sides of the glass; Deep great way balanced and way, way complex nose, mineral salt aromas are in lead, with malty orange juice and coriander only very slightly apparent; Big elegant body with balanced soft carbonation, salty warm, lemon acidy, balanced and complex; Long lemon acidy finish fading elegantly with plain malty aromas appering, mineral salty and lemon peel. Super, super very drinkable fresh beer!
Bottle (9-5-8-5-17=4.4) - Beautiful deep olden body, creamy white head that stays; Fantastic nose! A sour beer style that I never tasted before and by the nose it seems amazing. It is refined and complex, it has depth and is super pleasant. There are many different aromas and they are very well fitted together. This list could be never ending, but what stands out the most is Tarte Tatin made with very sour apples and cinnamon, super quality vinegar made from apple cider, fresh eucalyptus leaves, orange juice and peel, grapefruit juice and peel…..FANTASTIC; Soft to oily, velvety texture at the same time as being quite dry, quite salty and acidy, very big and soft carbonation, again a very, very good balance between the oily softness and the acidy; When the beer is swallowed, the carbonation kisses your tongue a pleasant farewell and see you very soon, the fell of the beer is moving on all parts of your tongue and stays as a slight bitterness for very long, aromas of freshly squeezed warm apple juice, a little Gueuze like cowshit and again some grapefruit juice. WHAT AN INCREDIBLE PLEASURE. I am already on my way to Leipzig!!!!!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(bottle, many thanks to EithCubes !) Hazy and cloudy orange-golden colour with a short but firm creamy white foam. Slightly sour wheaty and fruity (citrus, green apples) aroma with a tinge of coriander and salt. Moderately sour and slightly salty flavour, light bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel. Citrus-fruity and quite wheaty taste with light notes of coriander; rather dry, lactic sour and fruity finish with a light blend of coriander spice and a very pleasant salty aftertaste. Well balanced, pleasant and refreshing.
