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.

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 (5003) - 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.

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.

Draft. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Grainy and sweet aroma with some light fruity and spicy notes. The flavor has sweet fruits, peaches, spices, and light apple skins. Pretty good.

BillWyce (1000) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2011
From notes: Poured a hazy straw color with virtually no head. Crisp apple aroma with mild yeast underneath. Palate is slightly fizzy, but with some depth to it. Mild apple flavor at the tip of the tongue giving way to an earthy note. The crispness of the apple lingers nicely. Reminds me a bit of Unibrouwe’s Ephemere, but it’s less fizzy and the apple is less aggressive. The earthy note also separates it.
