Aroma: Stable, gun powder, fruit, cheese (parmesan). Nice head, hazy. Sour taste, taste like grape fruit (sour and bitter). A bit harsh palate. An interesting product but could be more balanced.

ksiwzos (123) - GREECE - SEP 3, 2016
Aroma has a nice funkiness, lemon, salinity, notes of burnt plastic, soapy hops, some nice phenols. Beautiful and complex! Funkiness isnt very intense but beautiful. Pale and almost crystal clear with normal white head that dissipates. Taste is tart with some botanic notes, brett is intense too and strangely a bit hoppy. Makes me salivate and want more! Some citrus overtones. Body is light ot medium, light carbonation and very dry. Amazing beer...
