Bottle @ Dan’s house. Cloudy orange appearance with an off white head that disappears quickly. Dull, citrusy, white wine, dental floss nose. Mildly tart, sour, cherry, citrusy, dull hoppy flavor with some weird plastic fruit notes.

Poured a very hazy light auburn. Smells of cider and a little vinegar. Tasted like cider with vanilla and a cherry highlight at the end. The sourness is moderate and enjoyable.

Koelschtrinker (11035) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2011
Gediegen hopfiger Geruch mit seichter Säuerlichkeit. Im Antrunk bitter, der hier nur spärlich vorhandenen Hopfen weißt noch deutlichere Altersspuren als im Geruch aus und ist weitestgehend erschlafft. So regiert die säuerlich angehauchte Bitterkeit, die dann im Mittelteil doch noch hopfige Spuren aufbringt. Trocken, in sehr milden Grundzügen Geuze-artig. Langer herber Ausklang mit der selben milden Würzigkeit, die schon im Antrunk in gleicher Intensität vorhanden war. Vielen Dank an den Doppelbock für den gemeinsamen Test! 8/10/9/10/11/10

A careful pour produces a clear golden amber colored elixir with a thin bubbly white head that dissipates quickly but leaves a cap on top and some lacing on the sides. Smells of citrus and phenolics, plums, spicy yeast and funk. Taste is tart and fruity with a barnyard edge. Finishes sweet with a bit of astringency and leaves a lingering tart bitterness on the tongue. Crisp carbonation, sticky mouthfeel, medium to thick body. Nice little saison, bier de garde. Tart and fruity I enjoyed this one. If only it wasn’t so pricey.

tastybeer (1780) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Cask. Pours hazy brown with a big rich off-white head. Aroma is cheesey hops, herbs, funk, and light citrus. Flavor is slightly tart with citrus and floral hops and a caramel malt. Not sure what the hell this is but I liked it.

paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2011
750 ml - 2006 A: Poured a hazy/cloudy ruby-ish amber color with a huge off-white head with amazing retention. Leads to a decent amount of lacing. S: very sour esters. Tart green apples, some sour citrus as well. T: This hasn’t mellowed much over the past year or so, and if it did it is too hard to tell. Very tart/sour which kind of destroys any flavors coming in. Mostly sour citrus. You can also taste the alcohol right behind the initial sours. M: Good mouthfeel, carbonation is a little too high. Very interesting palate, sours with a hint of sweetness. D: very interesting beer. Not quite what I expected but I look sour beers, and this one was very sour. I wouldn’t mind letting one age for a few more years. I think some time will mellow this one out.
