3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Clear and golden brown liquid with small white head. Nose : mostly lambic spell with dominating cooked fruits, apple, vinegar, wood and clove. Little tart. Sip : some carbonation, water like liquid with slightly oily texture. Sweet and sour with dominating apple and tart flavor. Develops a little dry with spicy clove. Some cinnamon ? Anyway it goes well with the apple part. After couple of sips the sweetness is fully dominated by dry clove and sour lambic like background. Not my kind of beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
33cl bottle @ home. Hazy orange / golden color, big creamy white to off-white head that lasts quite a while and leaves fair to good lacing. Smell malts, yeast, a bit sour fruits. Tastes pretty much the same. Almost a little infected...not sure what to think about this one. Medium carbo, medium body, a bit thin texture.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark golden/amber colored pour. Small layer of bubbles adorn the edge of the glass, but no lacing. Malty, sour, funky, earthy aroma. Sour taste with a vegetal presence. Acetic. Sweet and sour. Not sure if this was intended or not. But it sure is not a Belgian Ale. I would say that something got into this one and made it a sour beer. So rating to style this one is way off, but it is a good beer nonetheless. So I’ll rate to how good it actually is. If I rated to style it would be under a 1.5.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl from beer planet. Pours bright clear with large head that has excellent retention. Right away, I get a good blast of brett, followed by tropical lemon notes, light yeast esters, dry hay, and some metallic. Tart lemony brett, thin body, some esters toward the end...but unfortunately the metallic notes ruin it.

20/06/2011 33cl bottle @ home - bottled 06/2008 (2011-269)
Clear orange beer, very creamy white head, stable and a bit adhesive. Aroma: alcohol, citrus, oranges, candi sugar. MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: tart, somewhat fruity, green apples, little bitterness is detectable but very faint. Aftertaste: still pretty sour, some bitterness. Despite the fact the brewer clames this beer will be ok until at least 3 years after botteling, it is clearly not. Rerate? Maybe, but I’m not really waiting for that day to come.
