3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(33 cl bottle) Pours an amber colour, with a bubbly off-white and very sizeable head and chunks of sediment. Aroma is earthy, peppery, and spicy with some maltiness and an almost Brett-like funk at first. Then grassy hops take over. Taste is light to medium bitter and a touch sour. Lively carbonation, long finish with hoppy aroma accumulating on the palate, medium body. Interesting, as long as one likes it a bit funky.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Jan from Bierkoning I have opportunity to taste this beer. The looks of the beer is quite murky. Head is white and there is some sediment in bottle. Taste is quite fresh considering that this also has clearly a bit of alcohol. Aroma has citrus and lightness. Delightful almost wheat beer, but somewhat spring bock style drink. I am probably giving this a little bit too good rating, but I have such good memories about the Bierkoening and the people behind counter over there that anything associating to them will get couple extra points.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Bierkoning, many thanks! Dark orange with a big head. Wow, this is such a multilayered beer. First of all there is an intense fruitiness - Centenniel citrus, apricot, banana, orange, fruit bubble gum, also some biscuity malt. Intense, sharp spiciness - cinnamon and pepper. With some time the fruitiness becomes less prominent, giving way to a huge barnyard/vinous/brettanomyces aroma. High carbonation, taste is sharp spicy and brettanomyces vinous and ends with quite a heavy bitterness. Again, with some additional time the fruitiness once more becomes better discernable but also the barnyard aroma gains on intensivity. Such an original and eclectic beer - the spiciness and alcohol like in a belgian strong ale, the bitterness like in a bitter, the barnyard aroma like in a sour ale. Can’t say it’s the best beer I’ve had, but certainly one of the most original.

Very foamy stuff. Rather earthy aroma with some sour notes and hints of spices. Flavour is really spicy, sour and somewhat tart with earthy notes. Belgian ale with really stinging spices – and a ’t IJ twist.

Bottle, bought @ Bierzwerg.de.
Lovely deep orange pour with a giant, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has wheat, brett,oranges, funk, citrus and grapefruit. High, prickly carbonation, fine creamy and quite dry mouthfeel. Flavour has good bretty dryness, wheat sweetness, some light viniousness. Fairly delicious chalky dryness to the hops and brett at the finish. Nice.
