Dacrza (494) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Date Rated: Feb. 3, 2013... Glassware: Lindemans flute... Occasion: Super Bowl Sunday--lose Baltimore!... Appearance: dark copper body with a bright, white, thin hazy head; sediment flecks dance amidst fervent effervescence... Aroma: flat, funky, punchy pungency; dryish as a wine, buts its wheat keeps the profile in the beer realm... Palate: medium-bodied and fizzy; willpower must be invoked to keep from slamming the flute’s contents... Taste: sour and tart, as expected--not too puckerish; fruity and rewarding in its full flavor profile... Overall: Part Super Bowl high, part beer-buying-binge-booty mood, my state of mind may have something to do with enjoying this beer and its style, which I haven’t sprung for in a while; at $6 a bottle, pricey but provides a worthwhile experience...

Just to sort out some beers I have had, but didn’t rate. Bottle at home, It was an interesting beer, strange sweet/sourness, it was drinkable but i had a hard time drinking the complete bottle.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2007
Pretty mahogany with a medium off white head. Sour, acrid lemon, grape skins, canned pear, and fruit salad. Flavors take a back seat to nearly cloying candi sugar. Slight pear, cherry, doughy yeastiness. Some new oak, and other damp woody flavors. Traces of lemony sourness linger in the background in the sweet finish.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2010
Smells sickly sweet. No head really,, clearish, reddish brown. It really does taste like cough syrup: thick, disgustingly sweet... and way too damn thick. After the thick/sweet wears off there’s not much there. It’s kind of gross, not my thing.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle. Clear nut brown body, with a small white head. Aroma:taste of leather, farmyard, wood, sour cherries, acid, with a sweet body. Full bodied. Leaves a "furry" fealing in you mouth at the end of the beer.

scoth (478) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Pours clear orange-amber with a large beige head, fine and clinging lacing. Aromas of apple, apricot, biscuit, orange, honeysuckle, and grass. Medium-thin body, tart and creamy. Medium sweet, not cloying, medium orange pith sourness, and a light sour finish with just a hint of bitterness.

Salmoniform (477) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Orange amber hue with white head that dissipated very quickly. No head retention to speak of. Aroma is cherry, tangerine, acetic, wildflower honey, evergreen huckleberry, sugar. Mouthfeel is surprisingly nice with medium light body but with lacking carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a slight acidic finish. Overall this is very sweet but tasty. Almost juice-like.

RayOhm (474) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2011
amber pour with thin white head. some sour funk in the aroma. flavour was dominated by the sweetness, Belgium candy I assume. some sour funk hidden behind the candy. way way to sweet for me, cloying, couldnt even finish half the bottle. did not like

Leuk tussendoortje, fris zurige appel in aroma en smaak. Smaak met iets meer zoetheid, mild en in balans. Licht bruisend.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUL 16, 2007
Extremity flavor of red fruits, perfumed..................................Cor de tamarindo, doce, extremo sabor de frutas vermelhas, muito perfumada. O lúpulo vem em segundo lugar, mas é presente.
