2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle bought in Brugge, this is a beer I have somehow missed when buying in Belgium over the years. Broached at home on 27th Dec 2015 and poured slowly into a Westmalle chalice, no sediment left the bottle, so I got a clear light golden coloured beer with a thin white head that sadly fell away to a wisp and collar far too quickly. Sour, turned, sort of aroma and taste, certainly different to any other ’Petrus’ beers I have had, even if this is supposed to be the ’Mother Beer’. Glad I found and tried this, but I will not be seeking it out again. Just not my scene at all, I am sure this is going to give me belly ache: scored objectively.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: A perfectly clear yellow body with a ring of white foam.
Aroma: funk, bandaid, yeast, earthiness and fruitiness.
Taste: a strong sourness, like the acid of preserved vegetables. some fruitytones but again a harsh hefty bitterness on the finish with a puckering aftertaste. Lively carbonation and fairly light mouthfeel.
Sorry but didn’t like it to harsh tastes clashing in, in non good way.

Flaska på Örebro Öl & Whisky Festival. Belgoklubbens monter. Ljusorange med fluffigt vitt skum. Syrliga toner av sura äpplen, balsamvinäger och belgojäst. Syrlig i smaken, en del sockersötma, vinäger och syra så det stramar åt i käken. Något torr kropp. Mycket kolsyra, något champagnig. Något bitter i eftersmaken.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks Yoav. Hazy blond with a white head. Funky, slightly lactic, also citrus tartness in the nose, hints of vanilla - perhaps from the wood - as well. Funky, fruity and juicy taste. Medium body, balanced, juicy finish.
