Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with Vin. Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a fuzzy, soft white head which leaves a light ring. Aroma of peaches, oak, subtle vanilla, cheese, and barnyard funk. Medium bodied with a crispy, tart, if a a bit thin, palate. Finishes dry and tight with some modest sour fruit. Good sour.

750ml. Pours light golden with a small White head. Arp
Is a nice sharp tartness and barnyard funk. Slight aged cheese, sour apple note. Flavor is delicious sharp sour funk, but not so sour it loses the smooth mouthfeel. Sharp and crisp finish. Medium body and a sharper carbonation. Delicious

15/10/2010 75cl bottle @ De Ranke presentation at Gentse Biervereniging
Cloudy red to orange beer, white head that dissipates fast. Aroma: clearly bretta yeasts, somewhat musty, orange peal. MF is somewhat flat, full body though. Taste is soft sour, green apple, citrus and grape fruit. Aftertaste has lime and oranges. Well, I’m a sucker for sour ales and this mixture with Girardin sure does the trick for me.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors.
Aroma: The nose has a nice tart note with a slight floral undercurrent. A little cider, hay, and horse blanket emerge as the brew warms up a bit.
Appearance: It pours a nice gold color with a sizeable foamy white head.
Taste: The flavor is clean with the expected upfront acidity followed by light hay and an almost chardonnay like taste. There is a touch of light sweetness on the back end.
Palate: Light in body with above average levels of carbonation and a nice, clean finish.
Overall: A great example of the style, extremely well balanced and highly recommended!
