3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostaker nr Gent, Belgium, consumed at home Sunday 5th January 2014 Maybe I wasn’t really ready for a sour, mmhhh... not sure, one thing is for sure I struggled with this, this evening and had to cap the remainder of this with one of those wine air pump caps. I got a lot of thrusty rhubarb tart sourness at first, christ this is zappy, it certainly is a very good lambic type beer. Maybe I should have waited and then shared it with someone. Fruity with the rhubarb showing again and maybe some bitter fruit skins, it is really acid. It is good and I will rate it as such, just not the right beer for me today. A7 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.5

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Pauwels. Orange colour, gusher, off white head. Aroma is vinegar sour. Taste is pretty sour, pickled onions, balsamic vinegar. Sharp. Tough to get past that. Interesting, but not sure I like it so much. Want to try again some time to give it another chance.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle. Clear dark gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is very intense, quite pungent acetic aromas, oak, cherries, cheesy notes, funky. Strong enough to burn the nostrils a bit. Taste is very sour, acetic, very hot acidity, quite a bit of oak. Palate is bone dry, light-med carbonation. Drinkable, but not very pleasurable, way too acetic.
