2014 bottle shared with friends. Pours a cloudy/hazy orangish coppery color with off-white head that dissipates quickly. Floral notes, berries, funk, light earthiness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with more floral notes and a nice funk.

Reddish orange hue. Slightly transparent. Nice rocky white head but doesn't last too long. Floral, berry, lemon, funk on the nose. Peppery funk with lemon, orange zest, and a slight dry bitterness. Great.

Yields an orange-red color with a fizzy white head, not even leaving back a thin film of lacing.

Smells of strawberry bush, wild berries, hay and grass with a flowery lemon crispness on top. Got a dough wrapped old leather funk quality, accompanied by more hay and fresh cut wild flowers.

Has a lively carbonation to it, showcasing a light bodied, utmost refreshing and versatile beer. It turns pleasantly fruity onwards from the mid palate, while its funky farmhouse character maintains on the palate, with a softer turning mouthfeel, once an initial effervescence slowly dies down.

Tastes of juicy blood orange pulp and a dryer layer of lemon zest with its fruitiness setting the tone during the beginning. Offers a well nuanced stony mineral quality, which enhances the sourness of the lemon, soothed by white bread dough. A flowery hay aspect joins in, complimenting to the sour, intriguing fruit profile. Finishes slightly dry, sour, maintaining its thirst quenching fruit quality, slowly maturing to a more soddled state, due to noticable malts.

Another unique offering from this world class brewery, convincing on all fronts. To me this is an innovative beer which looks great, smells great, has a well balanced, lively, yet soft mouthfeel - and the beer actually tastes great. Differently from what I expected it to be, fruitier, but with such a nice depth to it.
