RRistow12 (221) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear amber copper color with white head. Aroma is mostly sour with some fruity floral aroma. Taste is not as sour as the smell. Mild sour taste with moderate sweetness. Very sticky mouthfeel. Really clings to the palate. Not bad but drinking more than a snifter would be too much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly sour smell. Very sweet and a bit sour. Really carbonated. The sweetness is too out of balance for me.

perfectly balanced in sweetness & sours - best of both worlds you get with this one. Better cellar temp than fridge - tastes much richer that way.

gegwilson (921) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014
Bottle from Bruges.pours amber with a cream head. Nice sour start, before a sugary sweet finish. Notes of citrus, sherbet, and some woody flavours. Quite reminiscent of cider. A little over sweet.

robinvboyer (2985) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Very sweet sugary aroma with light barnyard funk aromas. Carb and mouth feel are perfect, if anything the carb is a tad low. The finish is wet hay, touches of funk and sweet sugars. Nice.
