UPDATED: NOV 17, 2003 33 cL bottle. I can't say I liked what I found. I thought perhaps this bottle had gone south as it was freshness dated for 4/02, but I see by the description that the style is exactly as I experienced. Thin head dwindles to nothing over a pale yellow beer. Spritzy, with a very sour lemonade and grapefruit taste. Sourness overcomes any malts or hop impression. It was worth it to experience the style, but this won't become one of my favorites. I have a second bottle that I'll try with a syrup (or maybe a peach schnapps or Frango liquer?).
Re-sampled, Nov. 15, '03. This time I was prepared with a bottle of raspberry flavoring syrup. Just a little splash made it nice and smooth. Though pinkish, of course, the tartness remaining gave it an edge over most raspberry beers. Probably might even be well matched with a 7-up.

Sour and tart wheat beer that is not really worth drinking as it is. on the back label recommends brewery also to pouring example. raspberry syrup in. No, I have not learned to drink this sour spray yet, nor added Berliner kindl sauerkirsche. I learn it enough one day. :-) caustic tongue. tastes like stomach acid provides acid reflux, but ok fresh

Very light yellow to straw colour, no head at all. Aroma non appealing, acidic and thats all. In taste purely sour. Could be drinkable and very refreshing if added some kind of fruit flavouring, than its perfect for summer (considering low ABV)

0.33L bottle. Pours clear golden with a frothy white head. Interesting, and different aromas. Apple, wood, dust. True to style, the beer is immediately sour. In fact, that’s about the only flavor there. A little bit of apple sweetness comes in at the end, but this may just be a reaction to the sourness. Light body with a thin mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, a fairly uni-dimensional beer: it’s just sour. Still, I could see how this could be refreshing in the summer if mixed with some fruit liquour.

Piwo butelkowe. Aromat szmaty i skarpety. Kolor bardzo jasny słomkowy, piany zero, wysycenie duże. W smaku mocno kwaśne i tyle na ten temat. Ciekawostka.

goozen (2880) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy golden colored brew with refreshing sour taste and drink this one pure if you an experienced Geuze drinker, its easier than an Giradin or Cantillon.

Also ich hab nix gutes über dieses Bier gehört, aber trotzdem probier ich es, es ist sauer doch irgendwie gefällt mir das, es ist ohne zweifel gewöhnungsbedürftig aber mir gefällt dieses säuerliche, vor allem da es auch ein wenig fruchtig schmeckt, gut gekühlt ist es ein top Dutstlöscher, also ganz gutes Bier!

Pale milky gold, moderate frothy white head; aroma is clean wheat, pepper and tingly fruit; taste is slight sour and sharp tart lemon and lime fruit; it has a certain acidic bite which is not unpleasant; basically it’s more like a liquefied sherbet lemon than a beer - I can’t decide if that’s a good thing or not.

BOTTLE 33CL from Erzengel. Thanks, Gabriel! Look: clear golden with yeast sediment, small white head. Aroma: stale malts, husk. Taste: ultra-dry, zero sweetness, clean lactic acidity, some yeast/dough in the finish.
