3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottel from Mi-orge Mi-houblon, Arlon. I am having some trouble rating this, since I have virtually no experience with the style and I have no idea how it is SUPPOSED to taste. I can really only compare it to Rodenbach. I will give my best though. Pours a hazy reddish brown with a nice beige head with average stability. Nose is very interesting, strong and complex: sour, vinegar, strawberries, Riesling, barrel, cork, wood. Taste is for me very un-beery (I was raised on German-style lagers), very sour and tart, a bit like Champagne really, with a bitter undercurrent going on. Mouthfeel is astringent and bubbly. All in all a very interesting experience, I need to drink some more beers of this style untile I can decide whether I actually enjoy them.

Bottled (2014 vintage)@HBF2015. Rubyish brown colour with a mediumsized off-white head, that leaves good lace. Aroma is nicely caramel, some sour wood, mild vinegar, cherries, a bit floral notes as well as some quite acidic notes. Flavour is a mix of pretty much the same, leaving a very tart and nicely dry palate afterwards. Lovely dry.

Taste was a mix of oak, red fruit, slight acid, bread, hints of red fruits, hints of spice, finishing tart. Pretty nice.

Fat på Rattle o hum. Fasen börjar tycka att suröl smakar bra. Fin frisk syrlighet idoft, nästan lite havskänsla. Krämig o fin i munnen med flera fina smakaromer. God!!

Draft to taster at HopCat in Indy. Looks decent; undercarbonated though. A fairly transparent caramel with thin eggshell lacing. Smells lactic and acidic with notes of vinegar, oak, and mild cherry. Tastes like it smells with a tart medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but unbalanced.

15cl at the Ghent Beer Festival in 2014. The best alternative for a summer’s lager. Lovely refreshing, quite sour, perfect to drink.
