3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 mL capped bottle: deeply hazed light golden maple syrup colour with a minimal ivory cream. Sweet, yet tart green apple, yellow cake and oak aromatics. Brett and tannins combine on top of lemon zest and bitter honey. Tart and lightly astringent palate with fresh strawberries, green apple flesh, blackberries and acidic white grapes. Simply gorgeous palate, tingling and effervescent. A true gem.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy orange golden and a thin snow white head. Vinous vinegar aroma with woody tones and a sweet candied fruity middle. Tart geuze-like flavor but with a more hoppy/fruity note. Acidid and woody and very vinous, almost like an unripe white wine. Very interesting, but doesn’t have the complexity of the dark flemish sour ales that I adore.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sour orange and citrusy wine aromas. Nearly a half inch of white head gives way to lacing on this golden clear beer. Big flavors follow big aromas, with a souring lemon-pine green apple flavors. Not too tart compared to Rodenbach and Duchesse, so very drinkable and neutral in body. A good sipper with much to recommend it.

Wow! This only gets a 3.68? Huge sour/tart aroma makes your lips pucker without a taste. Great sour/tart lemon flavor, has a little mustiness to it. Finish leaves you begging for more. Perfect hot summer day beer.
