3.45/5 rDev -7%
Pours a rosy pink golden color. Bubbly head when pouring but it faded immediately. Aroma is of dry, spicy yeast, straw, some funk and faintly floral. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Highly carbonated on the tongue, like champagne. Light, thin body like champagne as well.

Mikkeller unleashes a new round of Spontaneous Series beers in 2013. Among them – SpontanRosehip. A rosehip is the fruit of the rose plant uses in various culinary recipes, but can be eaten raw. The flavor? Citrusy and of course, floral. The base beer a lambic, fermented in oak. SpontanRosehip will join SpontanElderflower, SpontanPeach and SpontanGooseberry.

Poured out of a bottle, 2013 vintage.
If you leave a bit in the bottle, you get a fairly clear, golden/caramel colored beer. If you pour in the dregs, it's really cloudy, raw apple cider, in color. There's basically no head, just slight white ring of lace.
The smell, overall, is sour with a hint of floral on top.
Flavor is basically sour with a hint of floral, it's not that it's bad, but we assumed that it would be fruitier, and, as a result, we were not prepared for what we got. The mouthfeel is enough to support the flavor, except there should be more behind the sour in terms of rose.
Overall, wouldn't buy it again. Glad to have tried it. I'd rather just go for a known sour quantity...

The colour is red-brown, the liquid is cloudy. It looks like a diluted rosehip soup. The low head is white, it leaves some lacing.
The smell is sourish. Notes of dry apple cider, unsweetened rosehip powder. Iodine and iron. Floral notes of hibiscus twigs.
The taste starts lambic-sour. Iodine and minerals. Unsweetened rosehip soup. The flavours of the lambic and the fruit are well integrated. Hibiscus and apple acid in the aftertaste, as well as some sweetness. The tart flavours stick to the teeth. Rosehip infusion and iodine in the finish.
The carbonation is strong, the bubbles mid-sized. The liquid is a bit sticky and farinaceous.
I think that the spontan-series beers so far has been quite uneven, but this one is clearly one of the better as the tart rosehips enhances the flavours from the beer much more than the sweeter fruits (strawberries, mango...) does.
