BoBoChamp (5758) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 75cl, new exclusive brew Anno 2011, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex sour brew, woody (more soft than the Lente; obvious notes of vanilla) and slightly fruity/bitter, yet easy to drink, very balanced, hazy, good head, very good Summer brew, yet very expensive!

Lemon barnyard hay subtle aroma. Pours hazy orange thin head. Flavors are mildly acidic. Moderate citrus hay dust. Subtle but flavorful and very well done. Tart balanced fink. Good. Acidic.

gyllenbock (5728) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle bought at Etre Gourmet in 2011. Hazy orange with a white head. This was a very nice one, not extremely sour and tart but balanced and really drinkable. Apples, some citrus, funk, wood and grape. Dry finish. Nice craftsmanship!

Sigmund (5695) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2011
Shared bottle, RBNAG 2011. Golden colour. Difficult to distinguish this from the Lente, but Zomer is slightly less woody and even more lemony in both aroma and flavour.

jackl (5603) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2013
Bottle supplied by myself. The pour’s deep hazy orange with a medium pillowy white head. Nice brett through the nose. Old cobweb-covered wood. A bit of marshmallow. Light white grape. Slightly brash. Notes of granny smith apple. The taste has similarly musty flavors. Like eating an attic. Rich brett with bright shocks of tart lemon. Key lime pie. Such expressive wild yeast. Nice floral finish. Mild creamy sweetness. Light body. Wonderful vitality. Moderate carbonation. Overall, fantastic.

czar (5568) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2013
huge thanks for sharing this one tommy and david! slightly hazy golden with a very nice white cap, good retention and lacing. funk-plenty, although slightly less than winter, peppery-citrus, citric, peachy, musty-dustiness. prickly carbonation, without it being aggressive, very bnice citrusy-herbal finish. awesome!

Pailhead (5558) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of light citrus, lemon, light funk, perfume, and oak. It transparent golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a ring. The flavor starts with dose of citrus/orange. The finish has moderate sour lemon with light oak. It’s light bodied with somewhat lively carbonation.

Strykzone (5501) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Sampled at Shep’s Diaper Party. A big tick here and a good one! Begins with a blast of funk in the mouth that quickly settled and all kinds of interesting stuff emerged. Lemon and grass, citrus, must, and at the finish, salt. Really good.

kappldav123 (5444) - GERMANY - JUL 24, 2011
Bottle looks again wonderful. Beer in the glass deep orange-golden, very zippy, nice head. Sourish aroma. Starts much more sour than the Lente, but not too much. Fine fruity notes of not too ripe apricotes, lemon. Wonderful balanced. Finish still sourish, with a salty touch. Finish also well balanced, complex sourish, intense aftertaste. Again a masterpiece!

Borresteijn (5317) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2012
75cl Bottle at WWT. Gusher. Hazy golden orange, white head. Aroma is tart, funky, dank, dung. Flavour is sour, acid, dung, very funky, light fruity, more sour in the finish. Light bodied. Unpleasant and way too sour for my taste. Reading the other ratings I can only conclude that people are nuts, and I’m the only sane person in this world.
