MelvinKalksma (1357) - 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.

Noform (60) - Tarnowskie Gry, POLAND - JAN 7, 2017
Leje sie jasne piana dość szybko opada, delikatnie zmętnione. Zapach bardzo mocno cytrusowy, czuć bretty. Bardzo rześki Smak najpierw delikatnie kwaśny, nie wiem czy klementynki to wniosły czy lacto, cytrusy, skra, lekka cierpkość bardzo przyjemne. Nie wiem czy piwo było z płatkami ale czuje taniny ktre idealnie sie komponują tutaj. Wysycenie średnie ale przy otwieraniu sie odgazowało pewnie. Goryczka niska.

mcberko (16215) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2016
375mL bottle, pours a hazy blonde with a tiny white head. Nose is a citrus bomb, with lots of funky brett and tons of ascorbic citrus. Flavour is likewise a citrus bomb, followed by medium funk and finishing very ascorbic. A little much on the citrus but it works well. Good stuff.

37cl bottle. Clear golden pour with a white head. Notes of brett, lemon juice and lemon zest, clementines, apple cider and some nice floral and grassy components. Medium body and carbonation and a sour and refreshing finish.

Werckmeister (2620) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - NOV 12, 2016
0,375l bottle at Saeglopurs place shared by me. Bottled 10/2015. yellow rather hazy color, small white head. smells yeasty, bit musty, light sewer notes, lightly flowery, citric. not overly exciting smell. medium to full body, soft pearly carbonation, dry but bubbly mouthfeel. tastes citric, acidic, light wood, bit musty, some funk, green apples, sour, light tangerines, grassy, light yeast. finishes quite acidic dry and medium sour with notes of citrus, wood and green apples. overall good beer, but did not care so much for the smell (just too smelly overall). still quite drinkable though apart from that.

375 ml bottle Sharded by Werckmeister, thanks!
Orange, hazy body, with a small, creamy, yellowish head.
Aroma of barnyard, basement, citrus, young cheese, tangerine, some green apples, some grass.
Taste is a bit lighter, but with lots of sour citrus, moderate barnyard, tangerine, apples, some cheese.
Light, slick mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes medium sour, a bit dry, very citric, with some apples, slight pears, slight grass.

Tasty. Very easy and fresh, with lots of straight, citric notes. Very well balanced sourness and dryness. Overall not among my favourite beers by this brewery, but lovely stuff.
