3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Bottle. Pours a hazy brown body with a white creamy head. Lots of fruity esters with apple being the dominant note. Some light spices with a hint of grass and grapes. Dry with little notice to the high abv. Sweet chewy slightly tart apple flavor. A great brew!
