Pours deep gold into a snifter. Large congolmerate head recedes leaving spider lacing. Floral caramel aromas. Sharp carbonation upfront leads to a malty middle and a lasting bitter saaz finish. Alcohol well-hidden on this one.

11.2 ounce bottle in oversized wine glass. Hazy dark orange with nice flat white head and lace. Spicy bready mildly citrus tart aroma. Fruity peach mild sweetness with assertive citric spicy bitterness and mildly tart citric dry finish. Pretty nice combination of flavors, fairly complex. Light, slightly waxy texture and a touch fizzy. Pretty good.

BiddleBrau (938) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Poured hazy golden with dense white head. Funky sour, Bret aroma. Horseblanket, sour, gueuze like flavor. Carbonation is low so mouthfeel is full on the tongue. Sharp flavor but clean. Nice find at Dive 96 in NYC

Appears to be a storm in the glass, vibrant orange. Aroma of distant hay. Nice sour taste with an acidic edge with notes of citrus. Very sour finish, but no dryness evident. Very nice one.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Pours a transparent orange amber with a clingy-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of lightly sweet biscuity Belgian malt with some sugar cookie notes and a touch of grassy hops. Body starts with a nice fullness and carbonation giving way to sweet doughy malts and Belgian yeast with some light fruity esters and a touch of clove. Finishes slightly drier with a floral piny bittering hoppiness. A nice Belgian strong ale.

southamptonsam (116) - New York, USA - APR 19, 2009
Quite unique. Light amber with a big lasting white head. I don’t usually like sour beers but this has a very pleasant grapefruity tartness. Nice summer drink. The alcohol is more than hidden, I think it is overestimated.
