[4723-20120818] Bottle. Amazing sour yeast aroma has a little citrus zest throughout. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Super sour yeast puckerer flavour. Medium body is all sour. It’s literally making me sneeze. (9/3/8/4/17) 4.1

KyotoLefty (6724) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Brilliant gold-orange color, with a big head. Lemony nose, light leather, grapefruit zest. Huge, vibrant flavors, fresh but complex. Grapefruit and lemon zest, light funk, nice bitterness, a fresh, very summery beer. Great.

Bottle at Sour & Bitter. Pours hazy golden with a bubbly white head. The aroma is acid, citrus, grapefruit, barnyard, and dusty like hops. The flavour is quite fruity and has a light sweetness to it. Acid, barnyard and oak. Long acidic finish.

lusikka (6559) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2014
750 ml bottle @ Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours a a cloudy orange colour with a white head. Aroma of herbs, citrus and rowanberry jam. Flavour of very tart citrus, rowanberries, lingonberries, licorice root(!), grass and strong floral notes. Full bodied and a very tart, sour, berryish finish. Excellent stuff.

75 cl bottle @ Kaisla
Slightly hazy orange color, small head. Very nice sourish notes, mild rowanberries and some grass. Flavor is somewhat sourish with berry notes and grass, mild gooseberries too. Palate is sour and crisp, long lingering tart finish, excellent and quite exciting. Top notch.

arminjewell (6434) - Hastings, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma has notes of cheese, dust, basement, hints of earth and lemon notes, nice lactic and lemon note with some slight spice notes. Taste is a nice mix of mix of nice vanilla, lots of lemon, grass, touch of earth, slight earthy bitterness. Nice, a bit yeasty but good.

DSG (6351) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 30, 2011
Bottle. Rating #2500. Opens with a gusher. Deep orange-amber color with a huge fluffy off-white head. Wonderful fresh aroma of oranges, lemons, grapefruits and barnyard. Great sour flavor with lots of fruits, some oak, leathery notes, touches of sweetness and an astringent bone-dry finish, more sour with bitter notes. Silky rounded mouthfeel. Delicious and quaffable. This is art.

750 ml bottle in those awesome bottles from 3F. Drank almost right after the Lente. Pours a much darker amber color with a similar large white head. A rich nose of massive tannins, oaky but also some huge sour acidic notes, very distinctly aggressive. There is certainly a fruity character in those nose, it’s hard to pin down close to lemon and currants. The flavor is a massive blast of sour tart lemons, dusty, herbal tea, it leaves a long lip smacking tartness, something akin to leather and grains. Very nice. It also has the lovely dry and effervescent palate that only the greatest lambics have. Much more aggressive than the Lente in some ways, refreshing and tasty. A nice, no a amazing Summer beer.

KnutAlbert (6267) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 30, 2014
Bottle. Mouthwatering geuze aroma. Lemon, vinegar, peaches and apricots. A great blend, worthy of the name, the hype and the price.
