2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2015 Aroma is slightly sour, some hints of corn I think, metallic, almost a glorified adjunct. It?s very off-putting. Appearance is straw yellow, large white head. Taste is very sour, but the taste is like hard cider, tart apple flavor. Mouthfeel is very carbonated. Overall...the smell threw me off. I?m not a huge fan but it isn?t horrible.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
37.5 cL bottle at home. Pours almost clear golden with a large white head. Interesting aroma with a little bit of barn, some malts, some sweet fruity notes, wood and tartness. Taste is quite citrussy with some barnyard and a long over medium sour finish. Quite dry. Medium body and carbo. Better than I remembered it to be.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours orangish brown with a big off white head. Nose is earthy and light fruit with a hint of vinegar but not as much as I had expected. Flavor is sweet throughout with a good sour presence on the finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean with a long aftertaste. I would like to have this when it’s a bit older.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold, white vanishing head. Aroma is sour, sewage, and funk. Body is very light, crisp, and carbonated. Flavor is very lactic and sour, no hop bitterness, slight apple. tasted side-by-side with Oud-Beersel and Cantillon Guezes. All three had the same appearance, this one had more funky/sewage notes, less fruity notes in the aroma, and less bitterness in the flavor, although it was amazing how similar they tasted.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A clear orangey gold with a very thin white head with a few big bubbles. A sharp lactobacillus bite. A bit of vinegar, lemon, and maybe a slightly offputting acrid acidity. Some grass. Some sort of fruit candy. A bit fruity, a bit funky, but definitely dry. Light in carbonation, but a lovely tingly mouthfeel. Thin and drinkable. I’d say the acidity makes this like a sharp lemonade in terms of thirst quenching. Very dry and lightly fruity, reminiscent of a champagne, but certainly more flavor. Highly acidic, lemon, lactobacillus. Grassy aftertaste. Lemony acidity in the finish. I could drink more of this, if the price is right.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy orange with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is sherberty, yeast and extremely acidic with minor barnyard notes. Flavor is heavily acidic with woody/pit like notes and a beautiful funk. The finish is lovely and extremely dry.

Very tart. Flavors consist of a combination of lemon, black peppers, grapes, grass, banana, tangerine, and black cherry. Good with Gouda.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2008 750 ml. into wine glass. Nice moist cork with a loud pop and lots of CO2 mist lingering. I can;t find a date on either the bottle of the cork. Pours a nice hazy honey brown color with visible active carbonation and a great creamy white dense head. Aroma is very refreshing - white grapes (champagne), oak, sour apple, lemon, and a funky sour aroma to finish it of. Very simple and refreshing flavor too - mostly white grapes that start sour and finish sweet and coat the teeth and gums. A little bit of oak on upfront with the sour grapes. Fizzy yet creamy (strange but pleasant) on palate with medium body. Overall: very nice. I’m really starting to like this style. (about 45 min after I typed all of the above) the brew is still good but has developed a crazy cheesy funk in the after flavor after sitting for a while. I’m not a huge fan of this quality, but I should have drunk my beer faster... but I know a lot of people dig this funky cheese quality.
(RERATE) I will leave it at 4.1, but got to reiterate how good this is. Its even funkier and more barnyardy this time around.

The predominant flavor here is grape skins--Concord grape skins, with exactly the same sort of bitterness and same fruit qualities. I happened to like this a lot.
