TearsforBeers (183) - Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Aromas and flavors much like a light white wine along with some more expected beer flavors.

maltman53 (334) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Pours the color of an IPA - hazy orange. Tart citrus and notes of asian spice on the nose, tart orange on the palate. The lactic sourness is well-balanced by the sweet malt. Overall, a subtle version of the sour style.

Ferris (4342) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
Draft - Vintage 2010 - Sour grape and funk. Cloudy copper with almost no head. Light sour and some cedar wood. Decent, but not worth the price or effort.

Bouquet de pâte à biscuit et de levure belge avec des épices éparpillés vers une finale de shampoing aux agrumes.

On tap at Avenue Pub. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is wine, funk, and oak. Not much sourness, stale fruit. Meh

Sour Edition 2010: Crisp golden coloured body with a bright copper highlight and a thin one centimetre tall just off-white head. Millions of microscopic bubbles rise from the bottom, but you really have to look to see them. Aroma of sour grapes, oak, vanilla, cognac, yeast, bread, citrus and a bit of light cherries - nice and complex throughout the smell. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a very mild light grape and tart gueuze like flavour, showing some grass, hay and a little oak. Aftertaste has a bit more complexity with some of the fruit-based sugars coming out, a little milk flavour and the subdued tartness and oak dryness shining at the end and making the mouth water for more. Overall, a very elegant, subdued yet potent sour with more of the hints of a wild or even a lambic noticeable. Very mild, but the flavours are very nice, i’m definitely glad I picked this up! I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Eataly in New York, New York on 12-July-2013 for US$16.80 sampled at home in Washington a day before leaving for the real Italy on 11-February-2014. Sour Edition 2010 // Purchased July 2013 // Sampled February 2014

boFNjackson (4140) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Tap @ The BeerMongers Sour Showcase... Poured pale, hazy yellow with a thin head. Awesome acidity hear with bright yeart and fruit notes. Candied sour apples with lemon note and candied sugars. Like a sour patch kid or something. Tart finish. Not too overbearing in any direction though.

GT2 (8464) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 1, 2013
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. Low haze orange pour. No foam. Nose is fresh tangerine, light Acetic, white wine barrel. Taste is lemon drops, stickier candies, stale apple. Palate is a bit chalky and mealy. Not very bright or even very sour.

tgncc (2823) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2013
The aroma is tart fruit, belgian candi sugar, some toffee. The appearance is slightly hazy and translucent amber/ruby color, white head. The flavor is vert tart cherries, sour like vinegar, cereal grains, not as sweet as the aroma. The finish is vinegar, sour, pungent, light fruit. Medium in body, lots of carbonation. Nicely done sour, not too overpowering. Cool variation of a reproduced ancient ale.

Lukaduke (2222) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy deep golden color with a finger of foam that settles quickly. On the nose there is some touches of phenol reigned in by tight sour fruit and a bit of belgian candi sugar. On the palate it has a slightly sticky mouthfeel with a burst of initial sour acidity that quickly gets covered with a blanket of sweet candi, apple, pear and a subtle touch of toffee on the finish.
