This beauty has eclipsed even Supplication as my favorite sour beer of all time. Just an amazing soft and succulent complex fruitiness (thanks to judicious use of plums) that complements a powerful tartness with plenty of the requisite horse blanket and barnyard funk. A marvelous paradox of raw power and sophistication.

This is it.

Pours an awesome red with a small head.

Smells like fresh picked plums with an intense sour funkiness.

Taste is a brutal beat down of funk, bacteria, vagina, sour. Good carbonation. Hits every spot offered. Finishes dry, tart, lingering acid.

GOD NECTAR.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 Bottle cheers to Ranga Jackson. Pours perfectly. Bright, slightly hazy orange with a thick white head leaving great lacing and retention for a sour. Nose is sweet, sour and juicy. Very tropical and slightly herbacious. Very grassy too. Taste shows grassy notes, some heavy apricot and juicy tropical fruits. Combines well and is very balanced. Can see why this is rated so highly. Superb drinkability without being too sour or funky. Great session sour. Love it

Dernière bouteille au Craft Beer Co. de Clerkenwell. Très semblable à la régulière avec en bonus une touche de noyau de prune ou d’abricot complètement délesté de sa chair.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 Had this one two times allready. First time was a small sample from Erwin’s glass at the brewery. Second time we opened a bottle at ’t Schooltje with Carlo and Urbain Nose is rather mediocre, slightly citrus, some exotic fruits. Taste is nice sourness, prunes are not very prominent. In fact it’s more a really good geuze, with a little bit more fruitiness to it. Good job. Looking forward to upcoming batches of this. Update: I really don’t get why the first and second batch are under the same rating. Those are two totally different beers. First one was a real complex geuze with a nice hint of the plums. Now it’s just liquid plum pie... I don’t get it...

UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 rerate. 375ml bottle. wayy more fruit in this bottle than i the 750ml bottle described below. beautiful plum and cranberries. soooo good.

750ml Bottle. Tried side by side with tap tilquin gueuze at torst. Pleasant leathery funk. Dusty basement. Pleasant dry plum skin addition. Slightly less acidic than the tap tilquin tasted next to this. Nice balance. Dry. Easy drinkin. Liked quite a bit.
