mikeyo1 (141) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2013
Sample at smöf 2013. 2007 edition. Hazy golden. Aroma of goose berries, toast, easterly red fruit, hay and yeast. Medium body. Taste is sweet with a sour note but less than expected. Fruits bread, wheat and a bit of bitter vinegar that lasts quite long in the taste. This one probably peaked a year or two ago?

CarlJonas (209) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2013
(2007) Amber dredge, white lid. Aroma of gooseberry and green banana. Wow, this one has peaked, taste is almost nonexistent. Not unpleasant in any way, just very subdued. Very low carbonation, dry mouthfeel. I suspect this one should be enjoyed quite a bit younger.

Dr_MedievAle (135) - Alabama, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Aroma: Sharp and nutty parmesan cheese, tart cherries. Appearance: Murky rust color body; off-white and foamy head. Very sticky lacing. Taste: Sour citrus notes mellow out to a slight sweetness and herbal bitterness. Sourness comes back in an aftertaste that lingers pleasantly, but not for too long. Palate: thin and smooth. finishes like a nice cold glass of iced tea. I’ve been trying and trying to get into sour beers, and I think this might be the first one I’ve had that gives me faith in the style. I might just like sour beers after all...

myxologyst66 (10) - lahaina, Hawaii, USA - AUG 24, 2013
A great mix of barn yard and white wine on the nose. Carmel color with a bit of haze, the taste is light and refreshing with just the right amount of sour. I am in love with this beer!
