3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick-set, light amberish head over clear foxy-amber beer, with mild carbonation. Very vinous nose, but also with a marked wild yeast/Brett component; quite woody. Red berries, lightly sourish fruit, and a weird hint at omelet with parsley. Woody, liquorice without sweetness. Faint wild yeasts, as faintly fruity and faintly vinous; all of the nosecomponents diminished, except for the wood which is increased in importance, and the omelet which doesn’t return. Warming up, preserved orange. Feels a lot more carbonated than the visual; quite slick, faint alcoholwarming, medium bodied. Certainly not lacking in flavour, but undeniably, the nose promised so much more complexity.

Bottle. Aroma of wild yeast, funk, wood, leather, no hops at all. In taste funky, slightly sour, white fruits like grapes and lichi aromas. The beer is dry, low carbonation, alcohol well hidden. Very interesting ale.

Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy reddish color, medium sized a bit foamy off-white head that lasts for a long time. Smell and taste lightly malts, some white wine influence as well as some yeast and a touch of citrus. Decentbody and carbonation.

375ml bottle (BierKompass.de)
Fairly pleasant lambic aroma, some apricot, some woodiness. Slightly rough taste, tangy, but too much of the wine, which I hate. Was expecting to totally hate this, but the wine’s not so much of a disaster. Finish does leave you with some very nice bitter hops. Better 2 minutes after swallowing than in the mouth.
