4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.65l bottle from Øltorget shared at innflyttningsfest. This is a cloudy straw golden one, it has a nice medium sized just off-white top that never leaves the glass. Looks really good and it has an amazing lovely bretty aroma. I get fresh grassy hints, some banana zesty hints after a few swirles,. Lovely flavor also. So fresh, light and refreshing. It has a average carbonation level and a light oily mouthfeel. The brett is just dancing on my tongue here. Fresh grass and a little citrusy grapefruit. WANT MORE! 01.06.2013

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle share. Cloudy yellow. Oddly sour, muted citrus and fruit, yeasty aroma. Taste is a weird mix of thin and sour, dry punches. Inconsistent. Odd.

Pours hazy gold into a tulip. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Sweet tropical fruit and funk aromas. Crisp with band-aid, aspirin and funk front to back and into the lasting peppery cracker finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate to heavy hay and straw for the malt, moderate herbs and lemon for the hops, light leather and must for the yeast, with hints of pear, white wine, nutmeg and clove. Head is large, frothy, white with thick crausty lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear at first, murky on the last pour, medium amber. Flavor starts moderately to heavily bitter, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation and a dry finish. Ful, nicely rounded aromas, the flavor though refreshing is a little flat. Overall a very nice Belgian Ale experience.

Bottle from Ølhandleriet, shared march 30th 2013. Hazy yellow body, huge white head. Funky brett, lemon and flowery aroma, taste of grapefruit, pepper, clove, brett and grass, dry and extremely refreshing. I wish this was more availible, and at a better price, then it would definately be my regular "table beer".

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a clear yellow with a large white head. Aroma is fruity/funk from the brett. Maybe some floral hops and maybe some pepper. Flavor is at first like chewing on a sweet and sour candy. Including the chalkiness. Then comes a bit of stone fruit. Finishes bitter and a bit sour. This thing is a brett overload. A bit much for my taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz. An uclear one, golden in color, and topped by a small, dense, white head. Brett aroma, fruity and funky, with some peppery notes in the back, making me think there’s some saison yeast in here too. Pale malts too. Dry on the palate, semi-soft on the carbonation. Quite bitter flavor, with funk and fruityness. Some faint spice notes in the far back. Not much maltyness. Bitter and fruity finish. Certainly a pleasant one, tasteful and easy drinkable, well worth a revisit or clone. 130614
