Oakes (13539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2015
Pale cloudy, aroma is lightly floral, maybe chamomile or even going in a rosewater direction. So pretty much not ’Merica. Softness, with a light fluffy floral character, and a hit of honeyish sweet malts.

Small sample from bottle, at a 4th of July tasting. Nice farmhouse kitchen / brett and Nelson Sauvin character in both aroma and flavour. Might well sample again.

tmrmwel (1290) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy straw yellow, with an enormous creamy head. Aroma is earthy with bretty vegetable notes, as well as pepper, gooseberries, grapes, lime and yuzu, and tart wooden yeast and malty notes of biscuits. Light to medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is peppery herbal hops, gooseberries, citrusy notes with lemon and yuzu, as well as tart yeasty notes of wooden barrels and white wine grapes. Funky, earthy finish. A strange one to be sure.

Pours murky hazy dark yellow with an off white head. Aroma has lots of funk, ruralness, pear, dryness, ripe apples and elderflower. The taste is rural and dry. Soome bready notes, apples and some barnyard. Pretty good but not a beauty-queen.
