Bottle. Poured into a Snifter glass a slightly cloudy pale straw yellow color with a slight white coastered white head. An interesting aroma, some peach, pear, and spice. Tart apricot peach flavors in the flavor. Minimal spice as well. The oak is there but pretty minimal. Much more fruit forward than I thought it would be. Light mouthfeel with some carbonation. Ends with a lingering drawn out dry apricot taste. Refreshing, great for summer.

hopdog (9059) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2011
750ml bottle. Poured a medium and hazy yellow color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of stale lemon rinds, steaming pile of manure, earthy, woody, and funky. Tastes of lemons, oak, brett, funk, and citrus. Lightly sweet with a nicer tart finish.

750 ml bottle into a lost abbey glass. After having dark woods was super excited to try this, but this was quite a let down. A light cloudy gold, lots of carbonation, just boring looking...The aroma is light grain, lactose, oak, a little funk, nothing bad just not strong enough for what I want from an oak aged sour...The taste is also pretty boring, an acidic sour with light grain, grass, again blah, but then there is a weird medicinal aftertaste thatís a little chalky thatís an even bigger turn off. A pretty disappointing sour, if you like light sours maybe youíll enjoy this but I wouldnít recommend trading for it.

Elwood (3332) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a cloudy, deep yellow with a small, pillowy, white head. The nose has a bit of lemon, yeast, oak, funk, with a strong witbier base. The flavor reminds me of a tart wit. Lots of citrus and yeast with the oak playing along and helping dry things out. Light to medium body with above average carbonation leading to a relatively short, tart finish. Rather refreshing.

AH so they fixed the lambic style, sour, tart, subtle oak notes, bretty on nose, smooth tart finish. Delicious beer, highly recommended!

Bottle shared at Paul and Ryanís 5000th rate tasting. Pours gold with a white head. Tartish fruity aroma with oak and brett. The flavor is funky and tart, with lemon, rhubarb, oak, brett, and a light sweetness. Nice.

Glouglouburp (6096) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2011
In short: A very tart blonde ale with a superb farmhouse character. Very good.
How: Bottle 750ml corked & caged. Consumed about 6 months after bottling
The look: Cloudy blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is uber-barnyard with some light notes of tart fruits. Iím not sure what happened in the barrel aging but the base beer aroma (a rather ordinary witbier) turned out into something totally unexpected. All the time I was captivated by how truly farmhouse the aroma was, but with a tart edge in bonus. Smelled like a tart uber-farmhouse rustic BiŤre De Garde. Taste is not as hypnotizing as the aroma, but still pretty damn good. Tart grapes, pineapples, lots of lemon, bananas, lactic notes, kiwis, flowers. Finish is very tart, a bit acidic, rather dry. * This is an ideal session summer beer for those who like beers a bit on the wild side. The problem is that for most people it is a bit pricey (about $15/bottle) to be consumed on a regular basis. But not for me, Iím doing very well financially, as a matter of fact my bank compliments me on my account all the time. Supposedly I have an outstanding balance.

Courtesy of popery. Fluffy white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is tart, some lemon, berries. Flavor is much the same, with some more berries. Oak comes through too, a little out of place. Crisp tart finish.
