Super light gold colour with a medium-small white head. Green apple like aroma. Really nice sour flavour with more of that green apple and some wine like dryness.

This is a palate cleanser. We have this in bottles here at the SharpEdge Creekhouse. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a thin long lasting white head. Very very tart and dry. Some earthy undertones are picked up. I love sour ales.

Bottled. Hazy yellow, long-lasting white head. Taste very sour, grapefruit maybe. Damped aroma. Very enjoyable beer, hard to put into words. Then again, I love all flamish.sour ales.

11.2 oz bottle. Sour smell, sour taste. Not to my liking and not what I expected. The oak flavor is very prominent under all that sourness and there is no hint of the 7.3 abv. Didn’t realize this is a sour ale. I do realize now I don’t care for sour ales!

Bottled @ Drake’s Bar, Sao Paulo, Brazil. A hazy orange beer with no head. Aroma is very sour. Taste is acidic, notes of wood. Very dry, some citric notes. Too sour for me, not my style

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 0.33 l. Nicely golden, fizzy head. Sour apples on nose and flavor. Dry, sparkling wine or cider style sourness. Juicy, mouthwatering, interesting. Quite nice, not for everyday drinking, but nice curiousity.

Pours out a small head that goes away and leaves a lacing that’s kinda weak. The color is golden like champagne. Smell is sour, so is the taste. It’s very fruity and sour at the same time. Mouthfeel is very good and I wouldn’t mind having another one of these.

I really dug this at a home-tasting. Fantastic find from an unknown entity. Brut-ish, bone dry, reminiscent of an unfruited lambic. Pleasantly sour and oaky. I’d be curious to try this with a Thanksgiving turkey or some artisan cheeses. A good find!
