Enno101 (86) - - 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%

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 (2231) - 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 (1589) - 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)

Scrumpy369 (536) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 18, 2016
On tap at hopaholic pub. Amber colour with a smal white head. Nose of citrussy ipa. Taste is also a hint of sourness with medium bitterness. Very well balanced, but feels like an ipa for me.

KoNrRiI (1264) - rhus, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2016
0.2 draft. Hazy, dark copper color and a small, off-white head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty, somewhat sour, notes of fermented fruits appear as well. Taste is sweet, very floral, fruity - unusually good. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and sourer than the rest. Overall a very good beer. The initial taste is insanely pleasant.

cmacklin (924) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy, golden orange with a massive, frothy, long lasting, beige head that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, spices, candy, yeast, grapefruit and light brett. Sweet, fruity flavour of peach, grapefruit, caramel malt, spices and yeast with a dry, bitter, hoppy, astringent, alcohol finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Well done.

Tap @ Mikkeller bar Aarhus. Hazy amber pour with a generous head. Notes of yeast, grapefruit, lemon rind, some light sweet malts and biscuits. Refreshing!
