WOW! blewn away by ths one (on tap @mikkeller) Amazing combination of fruity hops, brett, malts,.. Just perfectly balanced beer. Taste is slightly sour, bitter and sugary, but again all perfectly balanced. Golden!

Great funky nose, doughy and yeasty, cheesy, a little of hint of cinnamon and pie, baked fruits. Flavor is hard to describe, starts semi-sweet, lightly tart, leads to a more dry and surprisingly bitter finish, but not too bitter. Bitter enough to remind me of Orval. Notes includes funky cheese, grass. Light carbonic bite, light-medium mouthfeel. Cloudy orange-brown color, small head but good persistent lacing. On the whole just looks and tastes very primitive, somewhat how I imagine beer was 200+ years ago.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Przyprawowe, mocno słodowe. Mało brettów.

Bottle... Pours hazy and amber with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The aroma features breadiness, dust and pear. Medium to full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor is bready, lightly tart and a hint citric with a yeasty, lightly bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

keg at LE Fleur de Malts Paris
(not sure if this unretired, hops tasted pretty fresh)
stale, earthy, hay and peach aromas on the nose. moderate body and carbonation, fruity, flinty, fairly pithy bitterness, complex, v easy drinking. A real display of what can bring to a beer.

The aroma is like that of champagne in many ways. It also has some apple notes. As I sip, I taste some caramel malt. The sourness is present but not overwhelming. A truly excellent beer!

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle: Hazy orange body, slightly soapy & foamy eggshell cap that fades to a collar quickly. Aroma of sweaty & tart peach notes, orange, moderately sour gooseberry, pineapple, a touch of barn-like funk, & a very light touch of malty sweetness hidden in the very back. Earthy & Brett forward flavor. Mild horsey funk... Very mild, but noticeable. Hints of peach, stone fruit, & slightly tart oranges. Although there is more balancing hoppy, earthy bitterness. Faint kiss of malt sugars with a gooseberry finish, a hint of Bretty cotton funk. Pretty nice.

Koelschtrinker (22074) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 8, 2014
Säuerlicher, dunkel malziger Antrunk. Zur Mitte hin etwas trocken, dumpf säuerlich. Süffig, leicht herb, zum Ende stärker. Das dunkle Malz bleibt, nett. 9/9/9/9/7/9

SinH4 (6567) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 5, 2014
The best one. The funkiness and barnyard feeling is immediately there, the sourness is very reluctant. Not as sour as I had expected though. Probably the malts are too heavy compared to a real Lambic. This series was very interesting!
