thome50 (892) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle, with chili while the wife was out. Pours a hazy golden color with big pillowy white head. Aroma is musty up front. Some citrus in there and some sour notes. Taste is more musty with medium sour notes, hay and white wine. Overall, great as always with this one but 3F is better.

aleigator (100) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 21, 2014
Clear, sunny-yellow color, small head. Sour, funky, yeast, apple. Very well balanced lambic. Not too sour, yeast featheres the sourness while wheat adds a grainy, pleasant complexity. Sunny, tart, refreshing mouthfeel. Apple with a funky, acidic sourness, which stays long on the palate. Carbonation is very lively, adding freshness to the beer.

EddyBeer1 (765) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2014
Bouteille d’août 2013. Orange voilée, effervescence faible, col blanc presque absent. Légèrement vineuse (vin blanc), notes acides de vinaigre, de pommes et de citron, plutôt sèche, légèrement boisée et un peu amère sur la fin. Doit aussi se goûter plus vieille.

Ontape (155) - Valley Village, California, USA - APR 6, 2014
2/1/2013 bottle picked up last year and popped on a nice holiday weekends. Dry, earthy funk that you pretty much only get from the real deal. Beautiful in the glass like very few sours are. Not just sour but complex with subtle waves of flavor and funk that never say die ... there’s so much happening. This is a treat and hard to rate -- numbers don’t really tell the story.

hohops (136) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2014
Review #100- 37.5cl bottle. Appearance is hazy, lots of carbonation, small fizzy white head, yellowy orange in colour. Big aroma, which you can smell from a mile off. Tangy, musty, straw, sweaty (in a good way), citrus zest, fruits, bit of pineapple, grapefruit, gooseberry. Taste- lots of fruity juciness, tangy, a bit tart, sourness, musty, a dry finish, plenty of vinous qualities, coats the mouth well. Impressive.
