OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2005
Couleur dorée allant vers l’orange pale, apparence claire et translucide. Faible à moyenne quantité de mousse blanche concassée rapidement diminuante mais se renouvellent partiellement. Arômes de pommes vertes, de jeune cuir, de levures sauvages et de métal. Sensation en bouche sûre, vinaigré et lactique. Saveurs de bois, de cuir et de pommes-raisins verts. Aucune trace d’alcool d’identifiable durant tout l’étalement, nous conduisant vers une finale très sèche, aux accents de levures. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince, carbonatation hyper-active aux fines bulles champagnesques.

fordest (2010) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - OCT 27, 2005
I really liked this stuff. 330 ml bottle. Poured hazy yellow with a smallish head. Aromas were citrus and sour apple and currant. The flavor did not vary much from that execpt that the tartnes was more profound. Very tart and vinous. Very tasty. I like it!!!

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2005
Sampled at RBESG 2005. Pale golden colour with a weak head. Wood and sour aroma. Also sour flavour with notes of wood. Not my favorites.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2005
Bottle. Golden, clear, nice white head. Acidic fruity nose, like a Rodenbach GC or Panil. Malty acidic flavors. Wood. Lingering acidity. Not too overpowering, but pleasant. Not very heavy on the palate. Almost reminds me of a Berliner Kindle Weiss. This is in fact, refreshing.

eleusis (70) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2005
I really like this beer. The acid puckered my lips at first, I was little overwhelmed. But as the palate adjusts, this is as crisp and refreshing as a beer can be. Clean as all get-out on the way down, and yet still complex. Difficult to describe the flavor... I will be buying this again and again though. Petrus has impressed me heavily with their tripel and now this.

diabel (1609) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2005
Bottled A clear, lightly amber body, with an off-white frothy head. The aroma is overwhelming. When you remove the cap, the aroma fills the air and makes you happy. And by sniffing the glass, odours of wine, white port, citric hops welcome you and beg you to drink the beer. Heavily sour, light bitter initial flavour. Moderately sour, lightly bitter finish. Very well-balanced beer, despite a very lightly watery flavour. Fizzy carbonation. Medium bodied. This is a very good example of the flemish sour style. I find it a pity Bavik doesn’t sell this in Belgium. If Rodenbach can sell Rodenbach Grand Cru in Belgium quite well, Bavik certainly can sell this one as good as Rodenbach can sell the Grand Cru.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2005
Pours a light golden colour with a thin head. Aromas of oak, wine, lambic odors as well. brilliant taste tart, touch of sweetness, oak and some funkiness as well. Great balance and very refreshing.

aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2005
Best from the series thus far. The age barrell notable and enjoyable. Hues of darken berry with generous white head. Sniffs of a wine, sweet and tingley to the tongue, dry finish.
