330ml bottle from K&L Wine Merchants in Redwood City, CA. Tried alongside the Saison version and the Brett. bruxellensis.

Pours a quite clear orange-amber hue, with a reasonably full and frothy head of white that leaves some streaky lace. Body looks reasonably light, and doesn't actually hold a lot of carbonation. Overall, it looks reasonably good.

Nose has a sticky, plasticky tone to it, but it's extremely muted. Slight papery aroma, a little faint greenness, some herbal tones. Overall, though it's really quite weak. Having tried the brux version just before it, this seems tame and weak by comparison—perhaps it feels a little like some of the best characters from this are missing, and some of the aromas present here are best served when mixed with the brux.

Taste is clean and clear, with a decent green funk which sits on the middle of the palate. Mild carbonic-like acidity runs the length, and allows the beer to finish very cleanly on the back. Again, it feels like this is just filling in some holes in the brux. The acidity and cleanliness of it is actually very pleasant though: without a true puckering sour character, it remains very clean and drinkable.

Feel is light and dry. It matches the beer nicely, and provides a very pleasant drinkability to the brew.

Overall, yeah, I like this. It's a lot less complex and a lot less flavoursome than the brux version, but it's also a little cleaner, fresher and more drinkable. Together, I feel like they make a complete package.

Pours a medium copper color with a white soapy head and plenty of lacing. Aroma is bright and hoppy with a light white wine smell. In the taste, hoppy but with a firm tartness and more white wine elements. A fair amount of dry oak rounds it out. This is stronger in yeast driven tartness than the Bruxellinus version of this series. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation and dry. Nice funky ale. Hey baby, take a walk on the wild side.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pour at Mikkeller and Friends in Norrebro, Copenhagen.

A: Copper and orange with a thin, white head.

S: A medium brett, earthy funk with a side of orange zest.

T: The Brett shines through with a farm-like, light sourness. The hints of citrus balance this beer out very nicely and make it highly drinkable.

M: Bright carbonation comes alive making the beer almost pop.

O: A great use of this awesome yeast. Really showcases the yeast in a delicious, balanced ale. Would definitely order this again amongst a list of other beers I love.
