Hazy dark amber beer, little pale tan head. Nose is pleasingly cider - wine like. Palate is smooth and semi dry, fine carbonation. Taste follows the nose and adds gueuzey sourness, a little on the acid side. Light dry finish. Interesting stuff and if it had been less acid I would have really liked it.

Draft. Cloudy amber briwn color, thick beige head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of aromatic, floral vanilla and lemon. Taste is rich vanilla liquer and vinous fruit and white wine. Delicious.

fiulijn (19387) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne
Cloudy amber color with red shades; medium sized compact head. The style is there; this year the aroma has more bread and feety impression (along with the usual malt, wood, fruit, light acetone), sweetish. Good body structure; semi-sweet malt flavor, with medium-sharp acidity, and some acetone; good fruity level; solid and complex; it has more sediment than the previous years.
Excellent as usual; the aroma is more elegant than the flavor.

Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s - London. Thanks to Bruce for this beastly sour. Pours unclear amber with a fine, creamy tan head. Some tangy berries in the nose, acetic bite. Light to medium sweet flavor, good sour character, faint vinegar, berries, mellow funk. Medium to full bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Well and tangy to finish, lots of jammy fruits, some vinegar, peach, raspberry. Lovely stuff. Bold and quite punchy but still very drinkable.

Koelschtrinker (17748) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 22, 2016
Vollmundig sauer holziger Antrunk. Spritzig, kirschig-holzig, vollmundig. Der Mittelteil bietet nichts Neues sondern leitet in den langen säuerlichen Nachhall. Gut. 10/11/11/11/12/11
