Acetobacter's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Enjoyed from a 750ml bottle in a stemless wine glass. The beer pours a light copper color, with essentially no head. Notes of leather, "sweaty horse blanket," and the countryside during Spring come through in the aroma. To call it "appetizing" would be the equivalent of calling Luther "vaguely significant." The palate shows a bit of spritz up front, before a moderate sourness, more of the aforesaid Brettanomyces characteristics, light fruit notes, a slight bitterness, and a touch of lemon come through. The palate is bone dry and mouthfeel is just right. Mouthfeel is perhaps just slightly filled out by a bit of residual Pediococcus character, but it is by no means ropy. The finish is dry, lightly tart, and lightly leathery. Overall, absolutely wonderful; seemingly the earthly form of what "cuvee" should mean.

Pour a deep copper with a foamy white head. Aroma is lovely of country grass, orange zest, tangerine, slight horse blanket, slight green apples, ever so slight barnyard. Taste is mildly Sour, and very well balanced. Semi watery body with with a slightly fizzling but still mellow carbonation. I like this.

Pours a cloudy bright golden orange with a thin film of white foam. Nose has bitter apricots, orangepeel, leather and mineral flinty notes. Very good. Even some sweet flowery or even pastry notes. Crisp and clean on the palate with mostly light brett, yeasty notes, and light apricots again. Turning mineral in the aftertaste. Must say that I kinda love this right now way more than when I tried it mutiple years ago. This is great stuff, not gueuze but not far off Sainte Adairius stuff.. liking this big time.

Hopmaestro (1539) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2017
Aroma is lightly sour with lemons and light green apple. There’s also a somewhat funky aura with wooden notes and old cellar. Taste is a mix from sour apples and lemon that is carried by a lower, sweeter malt base that has a touch of overripe autumn pears. I’d say that the blend is pretty much perfect as there’s no clash between the sweet/sour notes. There’s also some minerals in here which adds another layer and you just have to bow down for the craftmanship in here. Tart in the finish with a balanced bitterness.

Della produzione di Nino Bacelle, io berrei anche succhi di frutta o the freddo, qualsiasi cosa. Questa acid sour ale, e spaziale, perchè inizialmente in bocca si sente l’attacco aciso, e poi a fine corsa emerge l’acetico della sour. Mondiale!!!!!!!

tfredvik (1859) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2017
Slightly hazy rather pale amber body with a white head that laces the glass well. Sour, a bit sweet and strong aroma of barnyard, with some fermented berries and caramel in the back. Strong flavour of barnyard, lemon, some grapefruit and caramel. A touch of sweetness and a moderate acidity in the long finish. Mid-bodied, dry and moderate carbonation. A nice one.
