75ml corked bottle. Exceptionally smooth and drinkable for a sour ale. Lightly hazy, medium golden with light airy head. Soft, but full, fruity, cider aroma. Taste is fizzy, light, mildly acidic, malt, cider, wood. This one has me rethinking sour ales, most of which are too tart for my palate.

Licht helder biertje met een azijnachtige, citroensmaak. Ruikt naar zure appel. Een licht bittere smaak met een wat zurige afdronk. Over het algemeen lekker biertje

Helder goudgeel bier met mooie schuimkraag. Zurig biertje maar niet overheersend. Smaken van appel, eik, citrus. Redelijk lange droge afdronk. Doet mij beetje denken aan geuze. Lekker genietersbiertje.

Bottle. Vinegar and bright on the nose, smells quite sour, apple. Light white head on a golden hay body. Carbonated, light mouth feel with a bright bitterness on the tongue, not overpowering. Light, fizzy with a lingering finish. A sour that wont overload your mouth, almost feels more like a wine than a beer.

Luvystypotables (557) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Aroma of citric acid and sour dough bread. Cloudy caramel colour with a thick head. Sour taste with a mildly acidic palate.

mkgrenwel (564) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Light golden pour with a clean white head. Aroma is vinegar, apple, lemon. Appealingly tart/sour. Flavor is the same. Fruity tartness in nice balance with a round sweetness. Slight vanilla from the oak, providing a nice smoothness and roundness to the experience. Apple juice and lemon are predominant flavors. Super thirst quenching. Sourness is quite strong but not too much. Could probably take some more sweetness to balance and give depth. I personally like more of a sweet/sour combination in these beers, and on that front it fall a bit short. Still a pretty nice beer.

Scipio (682) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Pours a pale yellow that is clear except for odd big bubbles sticking to the glass. Head is white and thin. The aroma is very sour and reminds me somewhat of wine, with vinegar, lemon, and some spices. The taste remains very sour and tart as expected. It contains more vinegar, spices, banana, and hints of clove. Long sour aftertaste. It has a light body, with a sticky, acidic texture, while being about average in carbonation. To enjoy this you must be a fan of this style. You will then be quite happy. If not, you should probably skip this one.

GBZ59 (1094) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - FEB 16, 2014
Botella de 330ml. Copa Flauta amplia. Color dorado y transparente. La espuma blanca forma una tupida corona que deja un amplio anillo en las paredes. El perfil aromático esta bien equilibrado y despliega notas de cítrico ágrio y madera, especias y trazos azucarados por detrás. El gentil malteado de entrada es barrido por un contundente e intenso sabor tartárico. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación suave. Paladar denso, especiado y ágrio. Los toques afrutados del intermedio aportan una agradable astringencia de limón y pomelo con recuerdos de taninos de uva. Final agrio y prolongado que precede a un retrogusto afrutado y especiado. El ABV apenas se percibe como un calorcillo en la garganta. Refrescante y plena de sabor. 330ml bottle. Wide Flute glass. Gold color, crystal clear appearance. White froth creates a close crown & leaves a wide ring on sides. Well balanced aroma profile displays sour citric & wood notes, spices & sugary hues on the backside. Gentle malty upfront is blowed up by sharp & intense tartar flavor. Light body. Soft carbonation. Spiced, dense & sour palate. Fruity touches in the middle resolve in a kind astringency from lemon & grapefruit rounded by memories of grape tannins. Long sour finish yields to a fruity & spiced aftertaste. ABV is just felt as a gentle heat through the throat. Refreshing & flavorful.
