3.89/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Shimmering amber with a slight chill haze topped by a persistent white fuzz and a thick, clingy collar.

Smell is a bit odd at first, reminding me of swimming pool, but that's quickly overtaken by spicy and funky cannabic pine, wood, furry weeds and champagne oak.

Taste is light jammy raspberry and gummies with a kind of toasty, roast caramel apple but a light, sharp acidic funk and grape. Complex.

This had a bit of an airy froth with a light body and a semi-dry crisp finish.

Sample glass at Mikkeller bar. From notes.


A - Hazy, dark gold or orange in colour. No visible carbonation. Just a few big bubbles floating on the outside on the top.


S - Very...lambicy. Lot's of sourness. Grape comes through alot. Sort of a floral element is there as well.


T - Quite a bunch. Grape is very present. There is some apple too. Very strong and aggressive.


M - Very mild carbonation. Medium body. Sour finish lingers a while. Almost a harsh finish. I didnĀ“t have to choke it down, but it was a chore towards the end.


D - Couldn't have too many of these. I was very happy to try it and would again if offered, but the rough finish after a while takes some points away, even though it tasted great but was a little hard at the end. I would have 2 or 3.
