Extravaganza 2017, London - hazy golden orange coloured pour with white head. Light to medium sour fruity with notes of citrus, some lemon, some barnyard, yeasty notes, wooden accents, tart fruity finish.
Sample at Beavertown Extravaganza 2017. A hazy orange coloured beer with a white head. Aroma and flavour of yeast, barnyard, sourness, funk, fruit, oak and citrus. Alengrin (5722) - BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2017
Aged blend of a Ducato saison with Drie Fonteinen lambic, from a typical Ducato, olive oil-like 'Italian' 75 cl bottle bought at Dranken De Moor. Irregular and loose, snow white, bubbly head immediately opening in the middle and eventually all but disappearing, over a cloudy orange-tinged peach blonde beer, murky with deposit and eventually - in combination with the eventual absence of a head - looking like a glass of home made pear juice or something alike. Interestingly 'wild' and indeed partially lambic-funky aroma of fermenting apples, overripe gooseberries, raw pineapple flesh, old musty cellars, red wine vinegar, starfruit, green banana, old dry sherry, wet leather, yoghurt, pear juice, kiwi, sourdough. Very estery onset, lots of purple gooseberries, apricot, starfruit and old apples, sour with a sweetish core, softly carbonated. Doughy and soggy bready malt basis, bit soapy wheatiness somewhere, with a lot of these 'fermenting fruit' lambic esters continuing till the end, dried by a lactic, yoghurty sourness. Wry plum peel and stale lemon juice notes in the end, grape peel and grape juice impressions, some vague soaking wet oak wood and - especially towards the end - a dry, powdery yeastiness bringing breadiness; retronasal dry sherry aromas as well. Lovely sour 'versnijbier' indeed, but I wonder if this would have gotten even better with more age - and thus Bretty lambic effects - on it. thorongil2 (3428) - , Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2017

Dégustée au restaurant de La Fine mousse. Corps jaune doré limpide; mousse blanche quasiment inexistante. Arômes de pomme acide, groseille; boisé; grande finesse. Idem en bouche; assez complexe. Très appréciable. Johnsense (1755) - - AUG 24, 2017

Pours clear orange with a nice, big white head. Aroma is sweet, citrus, light lactic, funky. High carbonation, nice dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is light crisp and sour. Good balance with good tartness. thellgren (1127) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2017
0.75 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki (tasted May 2, 2017). Aroma has rhubarb, lemon and marmalade. Appearance is golden, cloudy and still with some bubbles. Taste has citrus fruits, especially lemon. There’s also lemongrass, cardamon, rhubarb, pepper, well some spices. The actual spices are not the same I thought I tasted. Well, this is nicely sour and spicy in a refreshing way.
