andersand (529) - Malmö, - FEB 17, 2010
Hazy orange with a small white head that leaves some nice lazing on the wineglass used. Funky somewhat lemony aroma of fruitsugar and wood. Flavor is quite acidic, lemony sweet, fruity and slightly funky with a dry ening. Flavorfull yet quite mild and fruity. Soft light mouthfeel.

Grumlig, guld färgad med ett gulaktig skum. Doft: Halm, funk, lite alkoholig deg, hö, förmultnande trä. Smak: Funk, halm, citrus skal (mycket av det vita), äppel kart, bröd.

poech73 (220) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2014
Bouteille@Atelier TOKé. Bière à la robe ambrée au caractère acide adoucit par l’orge malté et assez bien houblonnée et légèrement astringente. Voilà une dégustation à qui il ne manque rien : un nez fabuleux super fleuri, légèrement sur, et biscuité avec une levure fruité (raisin) et un peu boisé. Une bouche très bien équilibrée entre l’acidité légère et boisée et un maltage assez doux fruité et panifié mais sec qui offre une finale assez rêche sur la langue sur une belle longueur avec des notes amères légèrement âcres qui rappellent le noyau de cerise. Assez succulent.

wvhoran (372) - Tasmania, - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber-orange with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, brett, acidic apple. The flavour is sour apple, lemon, must and funk. Fairly intense in the flavour but a marvellous quencher with plenty of complexity.

Clear golden, decent head with coarse bubbles, aromas of citrus, peach, honey and yeast, nice sourness in mouth with slight sweetness, dry finish, pleasant

Davros (2041) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2014
Pours amber with a small head. Nose shows elderflower, funky barnyard notes, light malt, unripe plums. Lovely. Flavours focus on a delicious tartness, a little oak, light elderflower and lemon rind.

King_Alex_II (109) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 3, 2014
An very intense sour beer, with a dry aftertaste. The only tiny disappointment is that the taste promises more than the whole taste delivers (the taste flattens out a bit after the first sip). Still an incredible great beer.

SinH4 (274) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Cloudy orange color with nice foam. Very dry funkiness. Stables. Very dry! Taste is lambic-like, citrusy, very dry finish. Nearly feels as like you have dust on your tongue. Nice sour finish. Light-bodied, good carbonation. Great!

Mortlach (1019) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 30, 2014
On tap @ Bir&Fud (Rome). Dorata intensa, un po’ torbida, schiuma bianca non molto abbondante ma discretamente persistente. Al naso è vinosa, molto intensa, lieviti selvatici, note agrumate e di mela annurca. In bocca è acida decisa, potente e lunghissima, pulita e secca nel finale. Corpo medio, carbonazione medio-elevata. Una splendida sour ale!

Flaska köpt på Systembolaget. Helt ok intryck av denna, men hade väntat mig en högre syra och mindre saftlik konsistens. Ok, inte mer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fellebag (913) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle 75cl. White foamy head settling. Hazy orange grapefruit color. Aroma is wine, sour candy, apples, lemon, nettles. Taste is sour of lemon and sour candy with a hint of ginger.
