Bottle at Erzbierschof Zurich. A light and vineous sour. Beautifully red, slightly cloudy. Very round and balanced, almost quaffable, but also one-dimensional.

Stylurus (10) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Nicely tart and sour. 750ml had little head produced in the glass. Consumed in Jan-2016 and bottled in Sep-2015. This could make you pucker up with the lemony mouth feel. A great sour beer that is amber red in color.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Amber to garnet pour light carbonation and thin white head. The great think about this one is the taste. Loads of Brett and lactic tartness. The malts were there but subdued. The balance of the sweetness to tart was 20/80 just like I love it. Some odd metallic taste on the finish otherwise it would have scored better.

Draft. Amber pour with a small white head. Crisp and fresh sourness, with a hint of stables and a little bit of dank, red berries. Sharp and dry sour, with notes of sour red apples and a finish of a bitter grapefruit.
