3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
7/29/07 On draught at the Issaquah brewhouse. Aroma is extremely fruity with a phenolic cider, tart apple character. Appearance is clear light gold with a good off-white head. Flavor is sour tart apple forward with a citrus character and heavy phenolics, but no plasticy notes. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a strong, spritzy carb feel. Overall, this is ok, but you must really be into sours or maybe lambics to appreciate this one; I just couldn’t have more than one.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a hazy, deep gold with almost no head. The aroma jumps out as orange oil and vinegar and sour orange candy (the candy that is infamous for being sour and makes you pucker when you eat it). The flavor is funky: grassy and sour. It almost resembles a drop of balsamic vinegar added to a mixture of lemon juice and club soda. It tastes like it needs a touch more sweetness to cut the intense sour flavors - more malt is needed here. The mouthfeel is medium in body, lightly carbonated, and strangely oily. Overall, one of my least favorite "Flemish Sours" (second only to what I assume was a bad bottle of Rodenbach Grand Cru...)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Belmont Station Puckerfest 2007. Pours hazy light orange with a soft white head. Malty aroma that reminds me of the buttered popcorn Jelly Bellies. Mild sourness with a light lemon and peach flavor. Dry and lightly acidic on the palate with a malty buttery caramel base. Nice beer, but the buttered popcorn aroma kinda threw me off a bit.
