Lubiere (9998) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
A golden sour ale with a thin white head. In aroma, beautiful fruity malt with light Epsom salts, ground cherries, lemon juice, classic. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with ground cherries, lemon, tart yet refreshing, well done. On tap at Farmhouse tap and Grill.

beastiefan2k (2431) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Generic stemmed tulip on draft at the Beveridge Place Pub in West Seattle. No head, almost still looking except some visible carbonation bubbles traveling up through the amber-gold body. Clear but thick body. Aroma bursts with sour cherry, a bit too much acetic vinegar, and a dusty maltiness. Unfortunately the bearable acetic becomes almost overpowering in the flavor. Its all vinegar with a harsh sour finish. Its not nail polish but acetic and harsh. Could not finish half the glass (too much acetic makes the palate go blind) and ended up blending for fun.

cheap (4054) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Donít worry about the other ratings, this is real lambic, a taste to behold, the taste of real beer. Frick off those hoppy bastards, yeas, just a good over all example of what beer should be my friend. Darker than pale tis beer has a slight olfactory of sweet perfume, yummy. Titillating co2 from the start. Taste us just simply great, this beer rocks. Look, I like sour beer and this is it fer sure. Yummy all round. THis is all me. Very well done brewers from engly! Go get em my ancestors.

MrChopin (3280) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 3, 2014
[ Tap ][ 4oz ][ @Maxís ][ $3 ][ Mini Weizen-glass ][ 7/23/14 ]
Hazy tea-gold, fizzy white head. Dusty nose, moderate acetic raspberry and light lactic yogurt, brown sugar hints. Metallic profile, heavy carbonation throughout, thin green apple front palate, more acetic and sugar hints mid through the burning end, faintly seedy strawberry through the thin, finish, overly slick and syrupy with heavy sweetness.

jkwood04 (3947) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 16, 2014
On tap in a tulip. Pours hazy amber/brown with a small head. Aroma of sourness/tartness, some fruit characteristics, pale malts, and some light woody characteristics. Flavor the same with a nice blend of it all. Average texture. I donít really get the hate for this beer on this site, since I thought it was pretty good.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Location: Draft at Jake Melnickís, 5/27/14

Aroma: The aroma is of this one is pretty tart, plenty of vinegar, and some sour fruit
Appearance: Pours a murky reddish-orange color with a decent off-white head
Flavor: Flavor-wise, it has lots of sour fruity and tartness, vinegar, much like the nose
Palate: The body is medium, with an acidic/sulphur kind of feel, and a tart/sour finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a nice attempt at the style, obviously it isnít a top of style beer, and itís probably too vinegary for my palate, but it is probably a little better than itís score on here.

vtafro (3426) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Draft. Brown pour with tan head. Light tart aromas, hints of balsamic vinegars, sweetness. Flavors follow, very wild and lightly tart and sour, would like to see this age and or be blended.

baraciisch (1885) - USA - JUN 21, 2014
Hazy caramel orange in color... Aroma of light citrus tartness, barely there... Flavor is intensely tart, citrus fruits, hard to pinpoint specifics on this, has a slight spiciness on the finish note present in other sours... Really good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
