Pleasing funky sour nose, hint of citrus/orange. A bit meh in the glass, little carb or liveliness, no head. But after finishing the pour I did manage to get some sediment, giving it a better look, a cloudy glowing yellow-white. Short of that it was clear and juice like in appearance. Fizzy on the palate though with a nice up front tartness and semi-sweet behind that, leading into briny finish. The yeast gives it a bready character that balances the tart. I don’t get much more orange in the flavor, mostly the nose. Maybe a hint of orange juice at the finish. It’s a really great modestly sour easy drinker.

Strong bitter citrus sour, yeasty and effervescent with a massive clementine middle and a tart orange/grapefruit peel finish. Moderate funk develops late, then a citric sweetness provides the slightest of relief from the sour. The fade stays manageable despite the clingy acidity, and the barnyard notes grow dirtier and lovelier as the pint warms. Nose is mostly funky yeast, and the pour’s unimpressive, but still a very drinkable sour.

MelvinKalksma (1516) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2017

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, orange, hops, citrus and brettanomyces.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with a slight/medium white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts and orange; ends slightly bitter, dry and sour with hops, citrus and brettanomyces.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Great combination of real fruit and brettanomyces; creating the intended flavour perfectly. The aroma is slightly too much wild yeast for me, probably because of the low alcohol.
