Just an outstanding beer. Tartness is light but evident. Slight Saison aroma but not as funky as Vielle. Very drinkable and now one of my favorites.

Countbeer (4071) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle: Thanks Joes: Served in a Chouffe glass: Small to medium off white foamy head on top of a hazy yellow orange colored beer. Aromas of yeast, brett, grapes, barnyard, wood, cheese, hay, sour, reminds me a bit of Cantillon. Flavours of tart, yeast, hay, grapes and light grapefruit, light bitter, wood, floral herbs, brett, lovely! Tart, wood and yeast. Yummi! Aftertaste is a mix of bitters and sours/tart, yeast, fruit, wood and some floral tones. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium to full body and a creamy texture.

Sweet, delicate orange citrus aroma. Strong citrus and yeast taste. Cuddly orange color with consistent carbonation. Thin white lace top. Beautiful beer

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 750ml Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium honey orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that reduced quickly to a thin layer of foam that was left lying on top, thus producing some really nice sheets of lace. The aroma had kind of funky odor to it and was of a straw like malt, a citrus hop and a barnyard scented yeast with notes of orange, tangerine, ripe peaches, apricot, a touch of oak and a mild tartness. The taste was sweet and malty with a nice notes of orange, apricot and hints of citrus from the start, and had a strong yeasty sour finish with just a light hint of a woody fruit taste at the end. The flavor lasted a wonderfully long time allowing for the melding of flavors to relax on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was just a tad beyond light in body with a nice dry texture and a prickly carbonation. Overall an exceptionally tasty and refreshing brew, one with a nice fruity sour flavor that most definitely left you wanting more. www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

pours hazy golden orange with a nice frothy head. Aroma is orange, grapefruit, and funk. Taste is loaded with citrus - orange and lemon, oak, nice brett funk, just the right amount of sourness and funk without being too acidic. Dry but leaves a pleasant sourness on the tongue. Extremely drinkable, enjoyed it. Wish they weren’t so pricy.
