look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Bottle from Tipples poured to a tulip glad. Pours murky orange colored with a bubbly half finger slightly off white head. Beautiful sweet rose aroma, sour cherries, some citrus fruit, sour vinegar notes, dry oak and vinous notes as well. The flavor is big sourness with the rose hips providing a big floral sweetness, some tropical fruit and cherry-like notes, dry oak finish. A bit of yeasty funky Brett influence. Really nice flavor. Pretty full medium plus mouthfeel, heavy for a sour brew, with prickly carbonation. Better than my overall score notes because it is pretty ugly. Recommended for sure. Not sure why everyone is so down on this. If the bottle said Cantillon it would probably be nearing the mid-4's for the rAvg. This is better than the score, which was brought down due to the ugly appearance.
