Bottle, 75 75cl. 2013 vintage, bottle 862/1200. It’s an almost clear one, pale golden in color and with an off-white head. Soapy, citrusy, lemon and grapefruit, aroma with notes of bread and perfume. Even some wood notes. It’s dry and tart on the palate, medium bodied. Soapy, citrusy flavor with a perfumed, woody hint. Lots of citrus. Lasting citrus dominated finish. Overall, sure nice, but a bit soapy I think. 160102

thanks Owen for sharing the bottle Murky orange brown color. No head at all. Slightly lifeless. Nose is I guess the best way to say it, lemon washing detergent. Lots of lemon acid, citrus, lemon peel, lemon bleach. Strong nose. Taste is more subdued. I suppose Lots of lemon and lemon peel. Really tart lambic. had to be really patient to start liking it. Spices came out more and more once this settled down. Slow sipper, lots of sour lemon but fun to try.

Aromat jest dosyć intensywny ale też dziwny. W życiu yuzu nie jadłem, może to właśnie ten owoc, kojarzy się trochę z przejrzałą pomarańczą, jest też taka fermentacyjna winność, ocet jabłkowy, kwiaty, cukierki i nutka mokrej skóry. Wypiłem już sporo lambików, ale z takim bukietem aromatycznym jeszcze się nie spotkałem. Jest dziwny ale w pozytywny sposób, bardzo złożony i ekscytujący. Smak kwaśny, dolne zakresy średniej, średnio wytrawny i lekko słodki w odczuciu cytrusowo-octowym. W smaku mamy trochę powtórki z aromatu, znowu ta przejrzała pomarańcza, kwiaty, limonka, skórka cytrusowa, niedojrzałe winogrona, mała nutka octu winnego i jabłkowego, troszkę piwnicy i funku. Posmak wytrawny, lekko tylko cierpki, zestowy. Ciało średnie, tekstura oleista i umiarkowane wysycenie. Piękne piwo.

Very good balance between funk and lactobacillus, nice acid with sweet fruity counterattack. Quite dry, refreshing, liked it as a fruit lambic antifan.

sjogro (2089) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2016
At Mrk’s. Bottle courtesy of Maakun! Bottle from 2013. Smells great, very fresh sweet lemonpeel. Taste reminds me of lemon based cleaner, but not solely. Very fruity, a bit sweaty and grassy, light salty aswell. Light sweet, light sour. Medium body, light minerals, very juicy. Very nice. If you put an otter on a label you win.

Maakun (2867) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2016
2013 bottle shared. Almost clear golden with ring of very small bubbles. Lots of sweet citrus notes on the notes, probably yuzu? Smells very good. Taste is funky, lemon, lime, bergamot, quite funky, hay, soap, flowery, toilet freshener. Nix mix between sweet sour and bitter, with the bitterness lingering for a long time in the finish. Medium bodied with barely any carbonation. The smell is amazing, otherwise just a decent beer but not that amazing.

Turtles (1545) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2016
375ml bottle from Systembolaget, vintage 2015, abv 5.5%. Murky amber, no head just a thin white border around the glass. Musty floral and grassy aroma with woody notes, yuzu, citrus, brown sugar and herbs. Smooth and soft mouthfeel. The taste is dominated by yuzu, sharp citrus and zesty notes without being particularly sour, floral, woody, grassy.

Ser ut som avloppsvatten, doftar som colagodis med målarfärg, smakar fruktskal med något kemisk bismak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
