Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle. Virtually no head. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel), with notes of oak, vanilla, cherry, brown sugar, apple/pear syrup. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation, lightly to moderately astringent. Smells like it will be too sweet, but it isnít; the acidity is quite bracing, and the tannins help too. Itís not all that complex, but itís certainly pleasant.

Mpuntmuts (121) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2014
Clear brown amber pour with little head. Somewhat sour acid and wild yeasty smell. Tart fruity taste, gueuze like, with the yeast in the background and also the bordeaux peaking through.Thin and dry mouthfeel with hardly any carbonation. Nice sour ale!

jkwood04 (3394) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 15, 2014
500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours deep copper with no head. Aroma of sourness/tartness, some funky notes, oak and wine, some fruits, and pale/caramel malts. Flavor the same with a great blend of the sourness, oak, and fruits. Would have a better texture if there was more carbonation. A good sour ale, but the carbonation lacking sort of hurts it.

Draft at Maxís Belgian Beer Festival. Pours hazy gold with no head. Tastes sour, yeasty, and tart, like cheese and green apple. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like creamy, sweet, nuttiness with hints of sour apple.
