4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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
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.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Approx 10 oz draft pour at Mikkeller Bar in San Francisco, California. The pour is clear gold with a thin white head. The aroma is acetic sour, very strong, approaching vinegar. There is some fruit character as well, orange, berry, apples. The taste is mouth puckering sour, really shockingly so - itís acetic vinegar, sharply so. As with the nose, after the sour settles in, there is apple cherry fruit, earth, and general funkiness. The palate is medium bodied, close to still carbonation and the earth funky sour finish. Pretty over the top, and not at all nuanced.
