2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle shared. Pours out of an over lively bottle (mild gusher) into a hazy golden with particles and an off white head. Once we got it poured the aroma reeks of light Brett funk, cider, wood, plastercine, doughy malt, brandy and fruits. Flavour is moderate sweet and light to moderate sour. Over medium bodied with high carbonation that quickly goes flat. A strange beer, basically craft snakebite. Drain poured after half a glass.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Pours hazy gold with modest cream head. Taste is hugely complex with a big brett character and a delicate bramley apple / cider influence following you throughout, pushed through by a sparkling carbonation. Intensely captivating blend.

Blending Ninkasi beer with cider and barrel age it on brandy barrels. Beautiful idea. The nose is complex: oaky, lemon, apples, brett. The taste is boozy, grapes, apples, beautiful tart (lactic acid), roze snoepkes, and minerals.
The beer could improve when it is less boozy in the end. Reminds me of Petrus Aged Pale Ale. Could be a very good beer to age. thanks berntholer for the gift!

I think this is a bit ok really, the sour is much less than it could be, the aroma has some oaken unless I’m making it up, the overall is quite nice. .... for a sour beer.

(Wild Beer Ninkasi Premier Cru) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 10%
Bright, sunny yellow colour on a hazy body, with lots of bits and pieces floating around. Tall and thicj snow-white head, with quite good retention, leaving medium lacing behind.
Nice aroma, lots of brett funk character, on the background fruity notes, peaches, apricot, yeast.
Very tasty! Some alcohol notable, sugar, a touch of sourness, cognac, grapes, champagne like. Fruity notes surfacing on the aftertaste.
Medium body, good carbonation. Slightly tart palate.
Quite good this one, interesting.
