Have to say I am loving the offerings from this brewery. They are rich and complex and are pushing the boundaries. This beer/masterpiece is no exception. The brett characters while prevalent do not dominate the beer and integrate well with the subtle richness that just lingers on the palate. As it warms up it is becoming more honeyed and velvety.

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.

Thanks to Beerlover_Ben! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG IV. While I greatly appreciate a beer not having honey – nothing should honey ever in it – there is still something odd about calling an apple beer Ninkasi & it having no honey or grapes for that matter in it.Golden, huge floraters, lots of them; Nose is sour apple, light cider, pear, touch barn. Taste is sour apple, light dry cider mixed with some white sugar sweetness, brett, faint lemon, light mineral touch. Light carbonation, touch cider-like body. Way better & more interesting than the rather bland base beer.

The aroma has a heavy brandy and mulled apple nose - very Christmasy but without being sickly. A rich slightly cloudy cider appearance of golden/amber. Taste is a rich balanced sour saison with sweet notes. Clean and fresh with a slight creamy and very long finish. No or very little carbonation. Try it before it goes!

330ml bottle from Great Grog. Pours clear golden yellow, long lasting white head. Aromas of cider and brandy, boozy motherlover. More cider than beer. Bitter taste, light apple sweet, good balance. Loved this.

Pours hazy golden color with frothy - but substantial - clean white head. Clean cider-apple aroma, without the unpleasant farmhouse notes. Almost like a perry with more depth thanks to some sherry, citrus notes and a dash of light malt. Fairly sweet flavor with citric-acid pangs. Yeast. Very light for the abv and extremely quaffable. Refreshing brett-sour dryness in the finish. A little warming alcohol in its wake. Very nice.
