The aroma is awesome - such a smooth sour presence. The aroma is a thick opaque, rich honey color with a very small head. The flavor of a proper smooth sour with delicious thirst quenching body that wants you to drink more.

Orangish gold pour with a nice sized white head. Mold and cheese aroma up front with some wet toothpicks. Flavor is a bit tart with some dank wet cork. Reminds me of exploring an old damp basement...or as some call it...superdave70’s ass.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle at a recent tasting. The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is tart lemons with some oak. The flavor is more of the same with a lot of tart lemons mixed with oak, some vanilla and Belgian yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice sour beer that I hope to try again.

boFNjackson (4186) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle shared at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured hazy yellow/golden. Aroma was vinegary but the flavor was a little more timid. Still amazing. The tart yeast was accentuated with bittersweet fruits (berries) that developed the souring finish.

(750ml bottle best by 4-2013 via trade with BA ArrogantB) clear golden orange with lasting white head and excellent lacing. Nose of wet barrel, funky cheese, musty, mossy. Taste of wet wood, tangerine, very tart fruit, raisins and lemons. Soft velvety carbonation with a decently long lemony finish. Nice!

brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - MAY 21, 2010
750mL bottle. Pours a pale reddish amber with a finger or two of head. Smells like a balanced geueze, but slightly sweeter with touch of ripe cherry. Taste is sour, somewhat tart, with some barnyard, hay and bitter citrus peel. Finish is nice, the sour and bitter flavors fade away evenly.

Bottle with a best before date of 04/2013 thanks to thirdeye11. Pours with a hazy golden body and a small white head. Aroma is very floral, flowers, corky, musty, acidic. Taste is sour, but with a light malty sweetness following. Floral and musty, acidity rounding it out. Light bubbles. Very nice.
