3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle shared by mathieuc, thanks brah. pours hazy pale golden with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. peaches and cream, awkward fruitiness - almost rotten pears, candi sugar, golden raisins, no funk really. moderate carbonation - slightly foamy, light body, semi-sweet, lightly astringent woodsy-grassy-peppery-spicy finish. blah.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 750ml. Thx mathieuc
Pours golden with low-medium white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of caramel, fruits, sugar, old rags. Taste is of sourness, fruits, candi sugar, oxydation?, some funk. Palate: Medium body. Light-medium carbonation. Overall: Not bad. Funky. Nothing that outstanding here. Can’t say for sure, but this does not seem in good shape. Might be over the hill.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Hammy78, thanks! Pours a light orange with no head and no lacing. Smells of perfume, sweet fruits and some light brown sugar. Taste is fruity with a moderate acidity and ends on slightly bitter notes. Flavors of peaches and override or maybe dried apricots. Body is light, acidity sufficient (could have used a little more but at least it isn’t a sour/acetic bomb) and overall well refreshing. Carbonation level was good. OK fruit sour, didn’t meet my expectations.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Slightly hazy golden/orange with a small off-white head and little to no lacing. Aroma is floral with oxidation notes, light fruity notes (couldn’t recognize lychee) and caramel. Taste is slightly sour and slightly sweet with grapefruits, floral presence, light caramel and oxidation notes again. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Moderately dry finish. Not a bad beer, but incredibly overpriced and it definitely not taste like a lambic. The fruitiness doesn’t shine at all.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle sampled at the DC Epic Sour Tasting 2014. Pours a clear, dark gold with some spitty white head. Nose is interesting, hits you with the lychee fruit right off the bat, sweet, dripping, then some grapefruit peel, some soap, some wood pulp, white grape. Flavor is tart, soapy, grapefruit, some herbs, a little white grape, a little soured tea. Lightly tannic finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
hazy gold honey, large bubbled white film. Cheesy, incredibly musty nose bordering on cork, reminiscent of older cuvée Rene, slight fruit. Brighter lactic flavor, lactic foamy from over carbonation, heavy bitterness and papery through the lightly metallic lime zest finish, palate too slick in light oxidation.

Bottom of the bottle. Barrel aroma with some light sour plum. Some wine grape sense here which on retrospect was probably the lychee. Cloudy blonde pour. Some orange here as well. Average carbonation. Bottle thanks to Travlr at Epic Sour Tasting.

From a bottle shared at the DC Epic Sour Beer Tasting. Thanks Travlr! Pours a cloudy brown with tan head. Caramel nose. Soft mouth feel. Some plastic notes lurking among the tart fruit.
