Bottle shared at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured cloudy amber/orange with a thin, off-white head. Extremely sour and puckering. Lactic and acidic with vinous grape flavors. Dry, champagne-like in body. Very tart towards the finish.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by TPatuto...thanks Tom! - Pours light amber with a small white head. Smells of smooth and oaky tartness with cheesy funkiness. Really awesome balance, with just a touch of cherries. Taste is really acidic, with a nice tart malty base, with grapefruit and oak on the finish. Itís a little over the top tartness, to be honest. Itís full-bodied and well-carbonated, and a very fine beer.

This one seemed a bit more drinkable in the sense it may have went down easier. But with that said I think I preferred the 006 which we consumed side by side. This had some noticeable fruit, some citrus but to me had a slight slick feeling. Not as acidic which at first I didnít think I liked about the 006 but now having this one, I think that hint of vinegar might be missing, as unpleasant as it was. I guess I am not as sensitive to it as others. Overall not a bad sour of course, may need time in the bottle, who knows.

Bright vinous nose with a bit of acetic acid, oak and cherry. The taste is extremely sour, with lots of acetic acid, lots of cherry, some citrus and some red wine and bile. Would have been nice for salad dressing.

Rich ripe barnyard nose. Tart fruit (cherry?) on the tongue. A beautiful red-tinged gold color.

THanks Matsciguy for this. Lots of sediment in this orange beer. Faint head. Very strong lactic sour aroma with a faint floral character. Wow. Very fizzy body. Strongly tart with a strong barnyard flavor The vinous character from the grapes is there as well. Superb.

Too much acetic acid and no depth. Beautiful looking draft at Monkís in June 2010 (after the Great Lambic Summit). Smell was slightly fruity, and an acetone component. One dimensional and relatively unimpressive. Went back to it later that night just to try again.

Tasted on 3/27/11 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a thin light pink head that leaves a thin collar of lace, and contains a bunch of chunky sediment. The nose is super funky with light burnt rubber, green apple, and a nice, tart lemon burst. The flavor is super sour with a bunch of lemon, green apple, red berry, burnt rubber, barnyard funk, and is very tannic. The body is medium with average carbonation and a super long lemon, green apple, red berry, and very tannic finish.
