4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium orange with a large (2-3 finger) white dense frothy head that receded slowly down to a medium capwhich lasted throughout and had excellent stcky sheets of lacing.
the aroma was of a bold ly harsh grain malt and a musty Brett yeast with notes of citrus (lime and lemon peel), corriander and a strong fruity ester (apples and pears).
The taste was a bit grainy and a tad sweet with a nice strong fruity presence early on, and then became rather yeasty and a little tart with a nice crisp spicy taste and a build up or tatrtness towards the finish. the flavor stuck to the taste buds for a good while with a spicy tart yeast taste left to linger on.
mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a nice dry texture and a prickly carbonation.
Overall this was a superb representaion of the style. It possesed a nice crispness and a ton of flavor, now add a great drinkability and you have yourself one awesome brew. You can bet your sweet bottom that I am going to have another.
375 ml bottle, shared by Werckmeister, many thanks. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Aroma of spices, some oranges, some brett. Medium to full body with a soft carbonation, a medium sweetness and a light bitterness. The flavor is lightly malty, biscuit, honey, orange, spices, tart fruits, very light brett notes.

0,375l bottle at home at home shared with Powy. BB 11/2017. yellow hazy color, small white head. smells dusty, caramel, bit parfumy, light joghurt. nice smell. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of caramel, spices, bit citric, ripe fruits, some brett, tobacco, bit grassy, hints of joghurt. finishes lightly sweet with notes of brett, ripe fruits and tobacco notes. decent one overall, good complexity but a bit on the sweet side, not totally convincing taste wise, but overall quite enjoyable if a bit heavy. caesar (7133) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2017
Bottle from Uiltje beershop a while ago, No 88841 BB 07/2020, 33 cl sample (all I could rescue out of a big gushing 75 cl bottle). Hazy golden color, short frothy head. Aroma is fruity of peach and apricot, some funky bubblegum and horseblanket, slight barnyard grain. Funky and quite peppery spicy, bit bubblegum sweetness, malty body. Considering the price and the fact half the bottle was spilled, major minus points. hman43 (1586) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Golden in appearance with a white head. Wheat, bubble gum, candy- like, slightly tart. EvanFriend (593) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2017
Slightly fruity, dry, a whole lot of horsey funk. The funk is the main flavor here, but there’s enough fruit and spice to keep it interesting. Excellent.

Soft tart flavor. Pineapple? Citrus? I cannot place it, makes it very interesting to drink. BRW (2781) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAY 8, 2017

Bottle, 1 pint, 9.4 fl. oz. Home. A yellow-brown beer with a big white foamy head ; medium retention. Cereal, citrus, cider, yoghurt, barnyard, light biscuit. Light to medium sweet and sour, light dry bitter refreshing. Medium body, light to medium oily texture, average to soft carbonation, dry acid lasting refreshing. Overall, great ! 14 = 16-2 ; what a pity, huge gushing.... 20-25cL on my tablecloth. And this beer was quite expensive. Happy with the quality, but I didn’t enjoy the quantity :) 17Beer (352) - Connecticut, USA - APR 18, 2017
Big yeasty farmhouse smells with some lacquer. Pours a hazy bright gold with a massive rocky white head that lasts. Funky barnyard flavors with lots of sour bite. Well made but not my favorite.
