4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. [thank you, Skortila!]
Thought this was only available in the states, but Jos found it in Holland, and I in Belgium. Pours a very clear golden cobber-orange with a lot of bubbles. A small creamy white head on top that stays for quite some time and leaves great ’fat’ lacing. Aroma is funk, muskyness, barnyard, slight sour fruit as well as a clear sweet caramel background. Lively and slightly spritzy mouthfeel. Flavour is impressive, quite tart at first, very dry. A lot of caramel hidden behind the usual lambic flavours. Apples and oak appear as well. Wonderful beer to try!

A very interesting beer. Mix pack from Bevmo La Mesa. Very stong Lambic qualities. Nose of citrus, apples. The palet much of the same.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear dull yellow with a sizable egg-white head. Very sour aroma, cider-like. Flavour is dry and vinous, again, more cider than beer. Body is thin with subtle carb. What can I say... sours are not really my thing. Interesting to try, though.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma is tart with a hint of apple. Mouth feel is very lively. Flavor is close to the aroma, with a nice tartness that is not overbearing. This may be the most dry tasting beer I’ve ever had, which is not a complaint. Finish is exceptionally clean leaving your tongue ready for another sip.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle purchased at Falling Rock during GABF. Golden straw color with a light but big bubbled head. Delightfully sour aroma with a light fruitiness and wood. The flavor is sour but not overpoweringly so. There is mostly apple flavors mixed with what I suppose to be wood hints. Dry and very carbonated but in this case (likely due to how dry this was) I think the carbonation enhances this brew. An interesting experience but for 11 dollars a bottle, it is one that I will not repeat soon.

Pour is a clear pale gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma of sour grapes, apples, faint spices, yeast and lemons. Flavor is sour and citrusy with some yeast, oak and tart cherry. Medium bodied. Another good belgian!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml. brown, longneck bottle. Cryptic date on back label. Poured out a hazy, straw yellow color, with a decent white head on it. Champagne carbonation, fine, tiny bubbles. Aromas are of pears, lemons, Brett, some wine barrel. Flavors are of pears, Brettanomyces, wine barrel, sour grapes. Medium mouthfeel, lively & prickly on the tongue. Decent, sour finish to it. Damn tasty beer. Maybe I should have bought more than one.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
9/19/07 From the bottle. Aroma is lightly sour pear-like malt forward balanced with fruity esters, followed by toffee, butter and no hops. Appearance is clear light gold with a good white head. Flavor is very sour, astringent, almost flawed. The esters totally mask the malt and there is no hop character. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a spritzy carb feel. Overall, this just seems like a flawed beer (4 of us split it, so I wasn’t the only one); need to have another one to be sure.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is strong, very malty with a considerable fruity overtone, like apple or pear. Color is a clear golden. Flavor is crisp, strongly fruity - very much like a cider rather than an ale - with a good bitter bite and a hint of sour apple taste. It is fairly smooth but does have an edge to it, and leaves a sour but not unpleasant aftertaste.
