Hazy orange with White head. Aroma of citrus, gooseberry and grapes. Fruity and wineous. Notes of oak and brett. Dry and light sour; zesty but finish medium bitter. Complex. Light body and juicy texture. Fizzy carbonation. A great one...

bartlebier (3771) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2017
33cl dse bb12/2017 fresh from Geers. - Supremely dialed (&emailed) in recipe combining the best of greenberry Nelson, a wild tripel-geuze character and sweet grape Sauvignon character - yet more and smoother than the sum of its parts. Very smooth, green grapejuice and apricot mouthfeel, making either wine tannins or that clean Mikkeller DIPA hoppiness work at full throttle. Less alcohol fumes than a Belgian tripel of this boost. A wildly satisfying Gewrztraminer of a DIPA-Tripel.

Foffern (1783) - Bod, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle. One year old. Pours a orange colour with a small off-white head. Fruity aroma of rowan berries, forest floor, oak, dried apricots and some citrus. The flavor is similar with more citrus, oak, hay and apple cider vinegar. A little dry. Has a slick mouth feel, full-bodied and a light bitterness. A fruity, balanced and fresh ale.

Draft glass @ Gollem. Finally I get tot this one. Lightly hazy amber / orange, creamy faintly tanned head. Nose is rich wine, funky wine, big brett, orange peel, toffee, sweet wine, malt sweetness on top, unique sweet & funk, caramelized carrot, fermenting white grapes,... Taste is sweet toffee, orange, candy, caramelized candy, sweetness mixed with the funk, toffee, big orange peel, white grape, some sugar, brett in the middle, funky grapes, intense mix of many things, finish is bitter on top, fruit,... Carries a combo of so many things, orange peel, funky grapes, brett, bitter finsh,... Body is toffee, orange peel, sugar, highly interesting version. I preferred the Chardonnay BA version which I tried prior to this one, I am curious to try some other versions. Big malt, sugar, toffee dont make it dry like the description promises, I do not care but this would have probably been better if dry.
