MiP (15960) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2005
UPDATED: APR 19, 2006 Bottle. Acidic, farty, earthy aroma. Unclear golden colour, very small white head. Acidic, vinegary flavour with a hint of bitterness. Aftertaste is tanninlike, but not that bitter with a soft, lingering acidity. Soft carbonation.

bhensonb (15612) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 13, 2007
375 ml. bottle. A nice Bret type aroma combined with honey. A sour whiff. The color is a light orange gold with a white head that ringed. A bit thin bodied. The carbonation is very mild. The flavor is primarily lactic sour. There are varying fruit notes, to accompany the earthy, Bretty, funkiness. Could be old mushrooms or sweat sox. Very interesting. Not an everyday drink, I think. Refreshing in an unusual way.

Scopey (15431) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle at the Rake, shared with Duff and Reakt. It pours hazy golden yellow with a thin fizzy white head. The nose is sour white grape, juicy fruit, lemon and skunky. It tastes of juicy white grape, lemon, lime, red apple, grass, and a little soap. It is quite light bodied and has a fruity tart finish. The sweet-sour balance is spot on. Yum.
