Marheb (1747) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2012
Miel, abricot et un peu de funk dans une marre beaucoup trop sucré. Manque de finesse.

Jesterdeal (1640) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Aroma of sour grape, perfume, wheat and slight funk. Pours light murky orange with beautiful head. Tastes sweet of bread, slight citrus funk, and wheat. A little abraisive but tasty.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Pours a hazy, dark golden yellow color with a half finger white foam head that quickly settles into a lastig ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind. Sweet ester-y fruit aroma with some zesty spice, subtle hops and alcohol. Crisp fruit notes, notably apple, pear and grape countered by floral/piney hops and peppery spice. Medium bodies with a slight creamy texture and some sort carbonation up front followed by a prominent yeast presence that gives off hints of crisp, light fruit. There’s also some zesty spice with hints of pepper and clove followed by some earthy hops and alcohol sweetness that lingers into a slight dry finish.

Benzai (6409) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle @ home. Clear yellow / golden color, average sized white head. Smell malts, gains, yeast, slightly sweet-sourish. Taste malts and somewhat sourish. Carbo & body medium.

Abio (1519) - Waasland, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2011
Yellow golden coloured beer, lots of fruits, sour and sweetness combined. Bottle was overtime. Need to retaste. Reminds me of some other kind of beer.

jodah52 (210) - Michigan, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Pours hazy, large head with large bubbles. Aroma of malt and hops is light but present, clean and fresh. But a sour ale aroma predominates, lambic-like, with aromas of wood and a bit of hay. Sour flavor makes this beer crisp-tasting, while strong carbonation minimizes the usual harsh mouthfeel associated with sour beers. This bottle was probably fairly old, as most reviews don’t find it to be as sour as I did; it was, however, quite nice at this age, like a tripel crossed with a lambic.

oldrtybastrd (3225) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Pours a hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty, hoppy, yeasty. Flavor is moderately sweet, highly alcoholic, with a nice hop bite to it. I expected more hop action.

bmerz (665) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Yellow with slight haze and no lace. Lactic fruity winy sour. Mustard, licorice/anise. Thick and sticky body with warming alcohol.

japeke (3) - Eindhoven, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2011 does not count
Orange to gold color, with a thick creamy head. Aroma is very fruity; apricots, banana and citrus are present. Also spice and hops. Very smooth mouthfeel, with a tickling carbonation. Spicey, fruity taste, with a medium body and slick texture. Alcohol is very well hidden. Personal opinion: One of the best, most surprising beers until now.
