Draught@GBBF 09’. Pretty nice, but very down the middle of the tongue, lemony acidity/sourness, with no complexity to it. Sour, but that’s about it. Pretty decent though.

Keg at GBBF09. Alround rating: Lemon, quite acidic, mindblowing blend of lambic like awsome sour acidic fruit and small honey sweetness off the malt. Absolutly outstanding, one of the finest beers iv ever tasted. Once i had this i stopped rating really and just drank this and a few select others.

Slightly hazy yellow-orange color, no head. Grapefruity tart nose, some mango too. Very fruity (apples, grapefruit, gooseberry) and tart. Soft mouthfeel. Very close to Cantillons. Super.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg@GBBF2009. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is sour wood, some slight sweetish notes as well as mild vanillaish notes. Flavour is wooden sourness along with some vanilla. Quite much like a lacking link between Cantillon and 3 Fonteinen. Nicely balanced, yet tart and sour.
Earlier Rating: 8/11/2009 Total Score: 3.9
Cask@GBBF2009. Yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is quite wooden sour along with caramel and some acidicness. Flavour is sour and tart fruits along with wood, yeast and earth. Brutally pleasant flavour.

Cask gravity at GBBF ’09. Gold. Sour aroma. Limey taste, crisp and refreshing. I hate the word ’crisp’ to describe beer. But it fits here.
