Very good, fast dwindling white head over pale golden beer, slight haze. Acetic nose, pickles! Pearjuice, perry, but always with this sourish vinegary touch. Slowly receding, leaving (sourish) flowers. Again pretty sourish, but virtually no acetic in the mouth - more lemony. Sweetish background, fine pale malts, reasonable balance. Flavour has again overcarbonated perry or cider-touches. Agressive, over-Champenoise pearling, jumping fysically out of the glass into the nose. Very slight slickness, thinnish body - the elderflower syrup must been fermented out completely. Something has been tried here, and more power to them for that. But one will have to agree it didn’t work out 100%. Imagine a sparkling wine that smells of vinegar...

From 750ml into Chouffe tulip. A really strange beer that hovers somewhere between Belgian blond, cider, and champagne. When you pour it (translucent yellow-gold with a pure white head), it heads up nicely, but then dies down just as quickly (reminiscent of champagne). The flavor is sweet and fruity--apple notes and a nice balancing tartness. I might like this a bit drier, but other than that it’s really intriguing and refreshing.

Clear blond body with a white fizzy head (fastly diminishing). Aroma of orange, grass, earth, ... Moderately bitter, moderately sweet flavour. Not fully in balance. Still quite ok.

Pale golden colour, white head. Aroma of white wine, sour berries and malts. Sour flavour, light sweet notes, light astringent. Sour finish, malts and elderflower. Quite refreshing, nice!
(From 75cL bottle @ DutchDrebus’ home. Thanks for sharing, Dré!)

75cl bottle shared by Dutchdrebus. Hazy pale yellow color, medium sized white head that disappears quickly. Smell lightly sour, fruits like lemon and berries. Taste is about the same : a slight sourness from berries and lightly lemon. A bit high carbonated, average to medium body. Decent, but a 75cl bottle by yourself is too much I’d say.
