DSG (9317) - Tel Aviv, - APR 21, 2015
Bottle sample at a sour tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Clear yellow-golden with a white head. Woody aroma, funky, kinda spicy, with some fruitiness, pretty citric. Yeasty flavor, dry, kinda funky, woody, with earth, spice, and some bitterness. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation. Nice stuff.

unclemike (2666) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - APR 16, 2015
Cloudy yellow-beige colour with a thick but loose head. The aroma is orvallish, very herbal and dusty with assertive hopping and a subtle lemony note. Palate is spicy, tart, with juicy lemon and a whack of peppery, coriandery notes. The fnish is tart and refreshing, with an austere hop dryness. Spice reigns. Complex barrel goodness. Impressive.

monkeychugg55 (972) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2015
Hazy golden body with a small white head. The aroma has some strong brett funk, lactic acid, green apple, oak, chardonnay, peppery alcohol, subtle fruit esters, and a hint of bready malt. The flavor is more wine like, retains some of the apple character, and finishes very dry, which seems to mute some of the sourness. Malt comes through a little more as it warms, as does some oak, and a touch of alcohol. Nice balance of sweet, sour, oak, funk and golden ale.

fletchfighters (1298) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2015
750 ML bottle 2013 vintage Straw yellow color, gets more hazy as more gets poured. Good bright white head. Falls to a thick collar. Spotty lacing. Nose is zesty lemon, orange, chardonnay, oak, and a mix of sea salt, gym socks, and vinegar. Taste is oak, chardonnay, coriander, orange peel, lemon peel, and spices. Brett shows up nicely. Medium bodied, subtle carbonation. ABV is more evident in the feel and finish. Far more Belgian strong ale in the mouth. Just a tad bit of sourness in the end. Damne good stuff with age

glennmastrange (2489) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle. Moderate to heavylight bread, grain and hay for the malt, moderate herbs and grass for the hops, moderate to heavy barnyard and musty for the yeast, with wood and ginger in the background. Head is huge, frothy/fizzy, white with fair lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is murky medium yellow. Flavor starts moderately to heavily acidic, then finishes moderately acidic. Palate is medium, between dry and watery, and has a fizzy carbonation. Pretty much one faceted in flavor out of it, but this Belgian Strong Ale has enough bold and diverse aromas to cover for it.

bwa5879 (826) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Slightly cloudy solid golden pour. Quarter inch of white head dissipated quickly. Great aroma of sour berries and crisp barnyard funk, juicy green sour apples and pear, oak, bready yeast, nice overall vinegar-y cider aroma. Average carbonation, mouthfeel is slightly tart and tingly, crisp finish. Apple, pear, champagne yeast flavors with lemon zest and a bit of cork. Crisp lighter sour, hides ABV well.

wlajwl (4922) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Aroma is almost lambic-like mixed with a background of yeast and spices. The flavor is fruit, pale malts, sour/barrel aging notes and a somewhat champagne/dryish finish.

Lukasmh (727) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours nice haze neon’s yellow with golden hint and small lasting white head. Aroma has tons of apples. The Girardin ones, both green and rip ones. Dry cider’ish. Wheat, funk, oak, slight barnyard. Taste starts sweet with red ripe apples over the tongue and turns tart with green apples. Leather, oak, spicy vanilla. Medium to full well carbonated mouth coating body. Slight alcohol as it warms in the glass, but well incorporated. Delicate and yet complex.

Alexanderdahl (111) - DENMARK - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours very yellow, light orange. Has a nose of very fresh green apples, fresh sourness and gives a little bit of a cider vibe. Funky wheaty notes as well. Sweet at first sip, dry at last. Like the nose, it has lots of apples on the tongue, fresh crisp hops giving it a slight grape, and yet no real bitterness. Good!
