Bottle, 75cl. Itís a clear one, more or less, topped by a creamy, off-white head of moderate size, leaving lacings. Itís quite sourish on the nose, with barnyard hints. Lemon, some cellar and peppery hints. Itís dry and lighlty effervescent on the palate, medium bodied, with flavors of pale malts in the back. Citrus peel, pepper, cellar and sourness in the flavor, quite tart. Lasting finish. Quite pleasant this one. 131116

Golden yellow with a two-finger white head. Aroma is tart with notes of exotic fruits and funky yeast/spice. Flavor is very sour, with notes of citrus, raspberry, and a bit of oak. Nice acidity levels for a sour ale, medium carbonation, alcohol is masked nicely.

Bottle to flute Aroma of crab apples, lemons, you know, sour stuff. Appearance...beautiful. It seems as though, I'm too drunk to rate this appropriately. But I'll persist...sharing a 750 mL bottle in 12m after having a 1000IBU Mikkeller is a challenge...and I won. The taste is sour, with a touch of Brettt..an that packs a punch and clears the back of the tongue hoppiness.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear gold to amber pour with a medium off-white head. Sour, citrusy aroma with some peppery yeast notes. Malty flavor with sour peach and citrus before a peppery and sour finish.

Pailhead (4418) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, musty basement, cork, and light sour lemon. It pours a hazy amber with a small white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus. It finishes with sour lemon, light must, citrus, and a touch of oak. Itís light bodied with moderate carbonation.

750 ml bottle from Secret Santa. Thanks. Pours a hazy dark gold color with a small white head that soon recedes to a film. The aroma is tart with mixed white fruits, vanilla and some funk. The taste is more tart fruits, green apples, sour grapes, vanilla and oak. The palate is light but effective and the carbonation is medium. I thought the finish fell a bit short and was less than smooth. Overall: A decent sour, Iím grateful for the chance to try it.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 10.05.2013, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy head. Aroma is slightly rich, funky fruity, lychee, sour apples, wheat, wood, white wine, grapefruit, citrus peel, grass, vanilla, some light malts and brett. Taste is slightly sour, funky, sorrel, citrus peel, grass, lychee, lemon, wood, wet leafs, hay, brett. Slightly dry finish, medium bitterness. Far from the best Iíve had, but still a very good one.
