On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika ( a good while ago). Deep golden clear color, good foam. Medium aroma intensity; malt, hops, dried fruits, good yeast influence- a little funky. Medium body & complexity. Good bitterness and balance. Enjoyable

kevinsenn (2090) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2016
On tap at Mikkeller. Sour and citrusy aroma. Not too sour taste. But still sour. Citrusy and bitter too. Really nice.

tom10101 (5749) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle (330 ml) at home. Clear orangey-golden, borderline copper, with a medium off-white head, moderate retention, leaving little lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, piney notes, leathery brettanomyces, Belgian yest and caramel notes. Taste is piney and citrusy with moderate leathery brettanomyces presence, caramel, yeasty presence and medium bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. A bit oily mouthfeel. Bitter finish that is borderline harsh. A generic Mikkeller Brett + hops beer. Not bad, but nothing to see here. Bitterness takes too much place for my liking. Ok.

Enno101 (100) - - FEB 24, 2016
Pours amber with 2 finger head. Aroma is very brett forward. Fresh lemon grass, green apples and a twang of funk. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Brett is the first thing on the palate, tartness, followed by fresh hops and a subtle bitterness. This is a really nice wild ale, the hops compliment it quite well. Would never think it was 8%

robertjm (876) - Albany, California, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Draft at Mikkeller - Aromas of wheat grass wafting in the wind. Very drinkable sour. More of a hop character than Id expect from a Brett.

rami_pl (2606) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 27, 2016
butelka, warka do 05/05/21. lekko metnawe czy tam mocno opalizujace, jasno bursztynowe, z dosc kosmiczna, nieco mydlana, prawie biala piana. Aromaty - dziczyzna. ale jaka fajna, miodowo-konska, owocowo-stajenna, bardzo mila w odbiorze, jest tez nieco bananow, cytrusow, jakich innych owocow swojskich (jablka czy tam gruszki czy cus... a wiem, melon miodowy, ten slodki!). w ustach pelne, dosc wysoko wysycone, slodkie, nadal bardzo funky w tym dosc slodko-owocowo-miodowym stylu. Generalnie wrazenie jest, ze piwo ma rownowage duzo bardziej w strone slodowo-drozdzowa, a mimo to chmielowe aromaty sa ewidentnie obecne. goryczka niewysoka, i nieco przyprawowa. takie tez (nieco przyprawowe ale tez znow funky na slodko) - posmaki. Mimo, ze dosc konsystentne, nadal odswiezajace. Sumarycznie: Orval na sterydach. Klasa.

UXO (1688) - CANADA - JAN 23, 2016
Appearance: clear pale amber with one fat finger of ivory head, excellent retention and chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: grapefruit, stone fruit, caramel malt, dried dark fruit, light brett funk. (8/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate-high bitter, mild funk. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry finish. (4/5) A very pleasing BSPA, with lots of wild character. I like it, and its certainly worth trying - and I dont mean to damn with faint praise here, but: its not quite as interesting as I was hoping/expecting it would be. A little more tartness or a little more sweetness might bring this a little more alive so to speak. (16/20)
