3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle $12.99. Nice dark, cloudy orange color. It smells deliciously sour. The taste is nice and sour, musty, old, some bits of wood (lambic?). The only problem I had with this beer is it seemed a little acidic and was kind of hard on my stomach. Good beer but I probably won’t bother cellaring any.

750ml bottle at Novare Res.
Nestled somewhere after a Panil and de Proef came this monster. And to put the three together would be just a natural inclination. Good/Better/Best comes to mind and this beer is squarely in the middle of that statement. Better. It’s a nice orange/golden pour with a foamy head. Nose is fruity, citrusy, tart, and funky. Flavors are more simple than other sours i’ve tried, which honestly would make this a fantastic starter sour. It’s a great example of the delicate balance between sweet and sour, but doesn’t have all the malty or fruity clutter of some of these beers contain.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to dchmela. Hazy orange pour with a surprisingly present off-white head. Tart fruit nose; some grapefruit, lemon, and sour cherry. Good bit of wood and some barnyard funkiness. Bit of leather. Overall, there was something too sweet/tart about this simply because there weren’t more complex flavors underneath. Felt like I wanted more depth in the flavor, but ultimately it was thin as was the palate. Decent, but admittedly a bit of letdown given my high hopes.
