Have had a chance to drink bottles of this from release until just recently; this review is an aggregate of all these occasions. Pours a hazy light orange color with smallish foam. In its younger days the aroma was sulfur, lemon, zesty spritz. As its aged there is lemon-lime, oaky funk, tangerine. For me the palate and flavors have always been very pleasant, even while young, with lemon zest, drying acid, moderate funk, hay, and key lime. Worth it. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2014

Bottle sample from a generous BA. Pours a slightly hazy bright gold color with a large white head. The aroma and flavor have barnyard funk, bright citrus, some acidity, yeasty bread, herbs, hay, white grapes, lemon zest, grass, earth. Light bodied, with a tart, dry mouthfeel and average carbonation. I think I would love another shot at this. Palme (4780) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2014
0.75l capped and corked bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. A nice big POFF on the cap here. In the glass it’s as good as crystal clear, golden in color and it has a big frothy almost fluffy and lasting white top. Lots of cork and old sawdust in the nose. All the goes around the table got hjortesalt when nosing it, I did not. The cork is truly present here, as is plain old wet musky wood. A dry green apple acidity blended with wet cellar, rope and some surprising tomato sweetness. Smells nice enough, but strange in a way. Tastes nice enough also. Soft brett, not extreme on the sourness at all. More light tart with lots of cork and cellar. It’s mildly carbonated this and it feels mild oily in the mouth. Ends with traces of cognac and more wood. I have to say that I had hoped for a bit more actually, but it’s a fine one never the less. 15.01.2014 Staffan47 (909) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2014
Halmgul. Svagt disig. Härlig funk. Svag ättika. En riktigt fin geuze, men tappade tålamodet på grund av långsam servering. Svag äppelkompott i positiv bemärkelse.

Taste is slightly harsh grassy, citrus, citrus peel, old rope, sorrel, cellar, oak. Longlasting mild bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Nice enough.
