COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This spontaneous fermented beer has been aged in Hungarian oak barrels and appears with a light amber color with almost no head.

The aroma is huge and very vinous. A clear impression of oxidized apples is the first thing that hits you, which made us think of heavy old fashioned British apple ciders. The aroma also reveals the wooden notes from the barrels along with some burned toffee and spices like Star anise.

It has a very heavy acidic profile at first, one that quickly slides into a smooth kind of sweetness. We taste green apples, carambola and very young green grapes. It has a certain lactic acidic touch and a creamy dry finish that lasts forever and bares the green impressions through.

Some mild creamy blue cheese on roasted rye bread would work great due to both the lactic and acidity impressions in this beer.

Bottle @ lbutiken copenhagen. Light copper coloured. High carbonation. Very citrus with a bit of old leaves. Sourness is quite overwhelming, but shows potential. With some aging it might become more balanced.

The_Osprey (7132) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2016
375ml cork and cage bottle at home in Richmond as Mikkeller HUES, 5%, 2014 vintage. Pours a brilliant amber orange, sparkling with a diminishing beige head. Aroma is plastic, polished leather, varnish, baby food, and apricot. Touch acetic. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is red grape, lime, plum, plastic, soured green apple. Not much acidity or tartness but a bit tannic and dry. Light sherry. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Not as vibrant or as complex as the gueuzes that come out of Belgium, but nice in its own right.

Zlotta (2514) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Sampled from 0.375 l bottle. Clear, golden amber with a white head. Sourish-fruity, quite funky aroma of lemon, gooseberry, green apples, barnyard and oak. Moderately sour, quite fruity, very funky and dusty taste of lemon, gooseberry, green apples, barnyard and oak, followed by a medium long, moderately tart and rather woody-dry finish. Medium body, moderately astringent and quite effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very nice!

beezydrunkit (29) - Alabama, USA - AUG 8, 2016
2014 vintage. Gold color. Off white head that's quickly gone. Aroma of orange marmalade, glazed donut, little funky, citrus peel rind, some cinnamon spice. Taste is sharp and tart, lemon citrus, subtle earthy funk. Dry as a bone. So good. Medium to high carbonation, champagne like. Medium body. She's a beaut. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
