Intro: On tap at Koelschip, Copenhagen, into a Mikkeller Spontan mini gueuze type glass.
Appearance: It was a clear copper colour with a half finger off white head that dissipated fairly quickly, leaving sparse lacing.
Aroma: Lemon, tart, sour, wood, oak with very light funk.
Taste: Lots of lemon. Lemon and carbonated water, sourness, some light oak and funk.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: This was ok, but not one of the better beers in the Spontan series.
