Bottle @ home. Pours amber color and a huge white head with some nice lacing. Dry and balanced sour aroma with notes of yeast, fruits and citrus zest, spices integrated with hints of thinner (in a nice way), hay. Dry thin bodied mouth feel with medium but sharp carbonation. Balanced taste of fruits, lemon zest, oranges,, yeast, wet hay, spices , leather and some horse blanket. Long lasting bitterness and sourness in the aftertaste.

This is a legendary beer, and a great starting point for trappist beers. It plays close with medium sourness - without being too sour - and there’s lovely aromas of licorice and bubblegum. It’s red, cloudy, and has a full head.
It’s lively - pops in your mouth with a slightly sour carbonation.

Not a fan. Sour yeasty is a good way to describe this beer. Slightly sourish fruity yeast aroma. Flavor matches....kind of tart too. Just not really refreshing.

Pours hazy amber with a medium white head. Nose is citrusy (orange peel) and spicy. Complex aromas of citrus, lemon, herbs, hay, bitter cocoa, spices and Belgian yeast. Fizzy carbonation, thin texture. The mouthfeeling is unique, dry, spicy, sour and bitter. Long bitter and dry finish. Not my favorite type of beer, but something really exceptionnal here, a unique beer experience !

Bottle from Ridgewood Wine.
Aroma: complex mix of spices, yeast, malt, citrus, a little hay, very earthy. Reminds me a bit of a refined saison mixed with an IPA and a light Belgian. Also, a bit like some dry white wines, unique and fantastic.
Appearance: Brown/copper colored, white head that took a very long time to disappear. The head tasted similar to the nose, but with a bit more citrus.
Flavor is similar to the head, maybe a bit more citrus than the nose.
Palate: Little bit of spice, 0 alcohol. Very well done.
