ardeo (89) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle 2015 version. Une bière ayant une aussi belle mousse à petites mais nombreuses bulles ne saurait pas être mauvaise. Sa couleur cuivrée légèrement trouble est aussi engageante. Le nez est complexe avec des arômes de fruits (prune, raisin, pomme verte), de miel, d’épice (?), de caramel. La bouche est super originale avec une sympathique effervescence, des goûts de fruits légèrement aigres, de houblon ... et une finale avec amertume de bonne longueur. Superbe triple "sauvage" complexe.

23-Apr-2016@ZBF. Goldgelb-Orange, minimale Trübung, weisser Schaum. Aroma: Fruchtigig, Lactosauer, Brett. Antrunk dito, gutte Brett-Noten, sauer, trotzdem hohe Restsüße. Ausgewogen und interessant.

WillemsUrenkel (1282) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - APR 22, 2016
0,33 l bottle, 2015 edition, bought at Mitra Vismarkt, Groningen. Bright orange in the glass, little bit unclear. Belgian sourness on the nose. Taste starts with dry fruity sourness, malt in the second row, some bitterness. Alcohol well hidden. Great stuff!

Tmoney99 (13000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2016
Bottle. Poured clear yellow color with an average to large frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Complex citrus sour and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus sour flavor with a medium sour finish of moderate duration with a small alcohol bite. This is a refreshing solid beer.

Bottle. Strong Brett, lemon, malt, and hay aroma. Hazy golden yellow with nice head. Sweet funky lemon malt, Brett, and moderately bitter dry hay flavor. Nice body and balance. A delight to drink.

hman43 (879) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - APR 10, 2016
It pours golden with a white head. There are vinous aromas with fruity esters, banana, spices and alcohol notes. There are flavors of caramel and toast with fruity esters, spices, banana and alcohol forming a good overall balance. It has a medium feel to it with a bitter and funky finish that is dry.

Patrickctenchi (5675) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2016
Bottle: Clear, golden orange with a whipped beige head. Spicy orange, light basement funk aroma. Taste is sweet, orange malt, brett. Dry and grassy. Turns slightly bitter at the end. Not a lot of "wildness", but pretty good.....hides it’s alcohol well.
