3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: pours clear golden amber with a thin white head, sour and tart aroma, taste is sour, very dry, thin bodied
A slightly hat honey colored beer, head very foamy out of the bottle but quickly settles. Has a slight "Barnyard" funkiness (wet hay, woodpile, critters) wild flowers, caramel, tangy. Sweet with various wood flavors (Oak & Cedar) and hints of peppercorn. Alcohol well masked, just noticeable in the warm finish. Slick feel, thin to medium body. Interesting but not one I’d drink often. madmitch76 (25519) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2017

Bottle charged at the 20k do. Thanks to loin. Pours unclear orange with a. Frothy white head. Lots of cedar in the nose, citrus peel, rind, light must, tangy orange. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, with pale wood, herbal and rindy bitterness. Not bad.

Hazy orange, minimal head. Tart citrus, some light funk. Pleasantly acidic, some lighter sweetness. Clean medium body. Good. ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2016
On tap @ Ølbaren, Copenhagen. Hazy orange body, small white head. Nose is grape peel, pale malts, straw and hints of herbs and red berries. Taste is red berries, lactic sour notes, citrus notes and red fruits. Medium body and carbonation. Nice, but not too memorable in all its fruitiness - this could be more sour IMO. maltman53 (472) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Pours the color of an IPA - hazy orange. Tart citrus and notes of asian spice on the nose, tart orange on the palate. The lactic sourness is well-balanced by the sweet malt. Overall, a subtle version of the sour style. pintbypint (3819) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
