Found this bottle at a bottle shop in Seaside, FL while visiting the annual wine fest.

Looks like a standard lambic; off gold, murky body. slight head disappears fast but some ok lacing

Smells tart: candy apple and some slight tropical scents: dank peach and some funky straw

Taste: tart apple initially but the rose hips really tie it together for a floral but subdued finish. Some straw mid to end taste leads to to a dryer finish. I love the subtlety of this beer; just beer it builds to be really sour, it gets reeled back in. Makes me want to drink a lot of them on a hot day.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied with slightly less carbonation

Overall: I would love to have a few of these fresh on a hot summer day. As is the case with most Mikkeller beers, I can't justify the price to buy in bulk. This is my 2nd favorite "Spontaneous" beer I've had to them (Raspberry has been my favorite). Overall a solid selection.

Got this in a bottle at the mikkeller bar in SF. I've loved all of the beers in this series. Like the others, this is very true to what is advertised. Loving this rosehip sour. Beautiful floral nose and reddish color. Nice mouthfeel and very tasty, dry rosy drinking.

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.
