Golden honey color with a thin cream head that leaves behind a bit of lacing. Aromas of tart apples, yeast, citrus, bit of funk. Tastes predominately of sourness at the start, then fades away to a crisp tartness with more of the citrus and coriander in the finish.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Bottle purchased at Rozi’s in Lakewood many moons ago. Pour is a modest looking hazy orange with slimming white head. Rather attractive, but nothing special. Aroma is vibrant, full of apricots and banana, yeast and other fruity smells. There is a little bit of lemon in the back of that as well. The flavor is very crisp, bitter and tart all at the same time. This has a very nice sour-face aspect to it. It really bites the mouth at first, then opens up to the softer sugary side Bits of grape and coriander open up in the flavor. Not a bad beer at all, quite an enjoyable sour.

Bottle at Die Heeren van Liedekerke. Color of tea with a large, frothy, lacing beige head. Aroma of very mild funk. Medium body with slightly frothy carbonation. Flavor is light peachy fruit, sour and funk.Finishes mouth smacking.

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Pale orange in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas of minerals, wood, outhouse, and lemon. More of the same in the mouth, with all sorts of wooden, lemony, bretty, and funky notes going on. Good sourness and refreshing dryness. Classy stuff.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Bottle pours straw yellow color with white head. Aroma is lemon, acidic notes, and some funk. Mouthfeel has a lot of carbonation and is very refreshing. Flavor is somewhat tart, some lemon, and has some grain taste. This is a very smooth beer. I was just expecting it to be more sour than it was.
