alassio (86) - USA - APR 10, 2013
Pleasantly zesty with a light fruity density on the palate; a touch of apricot and then some light tree-bark hops. Sour, sweet, and bitter all vie for attention, with none of them succeeding and the flavors cancel each other out to make for an overall simple beer that is not all that pleasurable, really. If anything, the mouthfeel is the best thing about it. Don’t need to have it again terribly soon.

alteregoo (803) - POLAND - JUN 30, 2016
Piana wysoka, nieco mydlana, ale trwała, gushing przy otwieraniu. Barwa żółta, mocno mętna. Aromat estrowy, lekko fenolowy i mocno dziki, przyjemny. W smaku pikantne, lekko kwaskowe, sporo nut starego siana, skóry, zepsutych brzoskwiń. Agresywna goryczka o chemicznym, sztucznym profilu, wysokie nagazowanie...
Wszystko wskazuje, że piwo się po prostu zepsuło, a mimo to jest dość ciekawe. Na dłuższą jednak metę męczy, trudno dopić...

VDuquerroux (1160) - Airvault, FRANCE - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A orange-yellow hazy beer with a big white foamy head ; good retention. Light wood, apple, barnyard, roast, herbal notes. Medium sweet, warming touch, light dry lasting sour, medium bitter, light fresh windy. Good body, average texture, average good carbonation, sweet fruity acid dry finish. Overall, a great wild strong belgian ale.

SkillsFactory (518) - ITALY - JUN 11, 2016
Lotto 191003042014, best before 05/2019, aperta l'11 giugno 2016. Dorata, abbastanza limpida, schiuma bianca fine e di buona persistenza. In prima battuta aroma di Brettanomyces, metallica, successivamente erbaceo pungente, chiodi di garofano, mela verde, leggero stallatico, leggerissimo miele, acidula. Al palato acidula, miele, Brett, mela verde, finale erbaceo e paglierino accompagnato da una lieve coda acidula. Ben carbonata, corpo medio-leggero, texture leggermente oleosa. Assomiglia ad un blend tra una Tripel ed un Lambic.

Ysok02 (843) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2016
Une bière ambrée à la mousse abondante, au nez qui évoque les Brett, une pointe balsamique, les groseilles vertes. Bouche acidulée qui rappelle plutôt une sour/wild ale qu’une strong ale, finale acidulée parfaitement équilibrée. Atypique mais agréable.
