3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,33 l bottle from drankgigant.nl, best before 23/1/2016. Clear, pale golden yellow with a medium large, foamy, almost stable, white head. Intense, sourish-fruity and slightly funky aroma of orange, cinnamon, white wine, gherkin, gooseberry and sauerkraut. Sour, fruity taste of citrus, white wine and gooseberry with hints of nutmeg, followed by a long, sour, tart finish. Thin body, very astringent and spritzy mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Very complex on the nose, a bit more one-dimensional on the tongue but still very tasty and refreshing. Thanks Michael Jackson for this beer!

Clean golden color, medium white head. Aroma of ripe sour fruits, oak, hops. Sour taste with light hoppy bitterness in finish and dry aftertaste. Medium body and strong carbonation. Good sour ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bumbling about in the liquor store, cursing the fact that I’d forgotten my glasses while knowing that my long, sweaty bike ride would end up with a few new beer purchases, I (barely) saw this brew on a shelf. Knowing that I have never had it, I bought one. Did I know that it was a sour? Nope. Supposedly, I’ve given up on them, not especially liking the style. This ale has a fruity aroma and tastes like sour cherries. It’s not sweet, not bitter, well carbonated and has a solid ABV. Not my idea of something I’d like to spend an afternoon drinking, but more than acceptable after that bike ride. Go Belgians!

Bottle. Golden with white head. Aroma of musty funk, earth, lemon. Taste of lemon, funk, earth. Super sharp and acidic. Delish

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Beer festival in Antwerp. Lots of wood, wine, apple. Very sour almost vinegar like. Kind of champagne like mouth feel. Highly complexity of aromas. Really doesn’t feel like 7,3%.

330ml bottle from a holidaying friend. Pours clear pale gold, long lasting thick white head, nice lacing. Sour aromas, almost wine vinegar territory. Taste has a crisp apple thing going on, dry like champagne, sour too. Lovely.
