Bottle bought back in 2009 and now enjoyed for our 10th anniversary. Well chosen. This is obviously a phenomenal sour beer and worthy of the Belgian style. The most impressive thing to me was that the tart punch never transitioned into an acetic or even acidic bite; not even as it warmed to room temperature. Very impressive.

I was fortunate enough to consume this three, possibly four times. Two of those I owe thanks to Mr. Himelstein, and one of those to someone who brought a bottle to a tasting years back (Tom??). As this has plenty of rave reviews touching on notes already, I’m just going to put my $.02 in by saying this: If you can find one of these still lying around, no matter what the cost, buy it. You will see why it’s ranked the #1 Collaborative Brew. Beyond that it’s just one of those ’going down in beer history’ brews! Excellent!

De color dorado y espuma blanca poco densa, aroma acido y con trazas de vino blanco o champan. En boca es agradable no es acida tan como esperaba, es mas maltosa que otras sours, con un agradable final.

Got a slug of a glass brought to me by my new best friend from that other site :) Slightly cloudy pale straw color with lots of funky tangerine on the nose. Bright acidity, clean punch of tart apple, apricot, funky dust and horse blanket notes. Really good based on my gulp... will reassess when someone decides to send me a bottle for my dome !

750ml bottle .. . Pours a deep yellow .. . mild head, lacing is solid .. . quite a fruity sour, sourness is balanced .. . clean mouthfeel .. . an upbeat beer, has held up well, but thinking this must have been more sour when first released. .. thanks to Rick for sharing this!! .. . .

Poured into north coast brewing snifter and shared with my wife stephanie and ratebeer legend daknole. An American wild ale that could pass for true Belgian gueuze - it has the Belgian Barnyard nose usually lacking in most American sours. Nice refreshing sour flavor that lingers well. An absolute treat to drink.

22/IV/13 - 75cl bottle @ De Hopduvel (Gent) - BB: n/a (2013-375) Thanks to Bobochamp (and thus to Kraddel as well) for sharing the bottle!
Little cloudy orange beer, no head. Aroma: sour, funky, sweet ripe tangerines, orange peel, some overripe fruits, banana peel, little chemical touch, dusty, wood, hint of almonds. MF: soft to no carbon, medium body. Taste: almonds at first, very sour, lemony, green apples, woody, bitter, earthy touch. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, wood, apple skin, bit nutty, sourness burning your throat, orange peel, bit spicy, earthy, typical bretta flavours in the end. Maybe a bit too sour to maintain drinkability. Very refreshing though.
