330ml - Apple bite on nose, green apple and lambic sourness on palate. Appearance isnít much but the flavor is great, and isnít that what were here for?

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2009 bottle poured a wheat amber in color with a thin layer of white foam on the surface and unrelenting carbonation. aroma has sour green apples, citrus peel, beautiful yeast, tart cherry, candy sugar, and some background oak. just really something to smell and just got better as it warmed a bit, had no idea this would be so good. flavor is tart like it should be but with this dry sweetness that offsets it so well, light to drink with such great fruit combinationís. keeps coming at you with yeast, and the subtle flavor from the oak is tremendous, lambic like but totally different. so much better than the Oud Bruin, combines the fruit sweetness and dryness so well.

thegreenrooster (3174) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Pour is a orange with a small white head. Aroma is very wine-like with some grapes and a nice cherry. Flavor is super sour with lots of cherry and a nice yeastyness. Very tart and not one of my fav styles but i guess good enough to try once.

CapFlu (4481) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2007
(Bottle) Purchased at Hillside Liquors in Victoria for ~$4. Pours a frothy white head atop a light amber body. Good sour notes with a seedy undertone. Very drinkable and enjoyable - good strong sour, cherries and yeast. Smooth with a lasting tart finish. Definitely a winner.

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Spritzy appearance, light golden body, funky farmyard apple aroma. Classic flemish sour flavor, quite tart, medium cherry-pit bitterness in the finish, very drinkable. Strange combination of flemish sour, gueuze, and saison that works really well. Seems to be really hard to find around here. Had to bring back from the Bier Tempel in Belgium.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - NOV 16, 2007
Pours a dull apricot color w/ a fast fading spritzy head that leaves behind a lingering lace. Aromas of tart to sour fruit. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers that explode on the palate creating a chewy cotton texture. Pleasantly sour and brisk. Flavors of under ripened peaches, green apples, sour grapes, and a touch of sodium. The finish is dry and has a lingering tartness. Overall: this brew is very enjoyable and well balanced. I was amazed to learn it was over 7% abv. I couldnít tell at all.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2007
Bottle @ GBBF í07. Petrus? I thought upon Mesí recommendation but little did I know what I was about to behold. Golden/amberish with a thin white head. Nose of citrus, lemon and lime, apple, yeast and a bit of hay. So much flavour from such a small 25cl bottle, itís got qualities of a lambic and some subtle woody sour ale notes. Tart and citric, again lemon, lime and apple but also some subtle cherry sour ale notes with yeast, malt and a touch of oak. Iím so kicking myself that I didnít grab any of these at Drunken Geese when I had the chance.

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Pours golden in color and seems carbonated. Not much head. Very odd aroma. My friend had never had a sour and I let him try it and he was not too happy with it. Very tart and sour in flavor and great on the palate. One of the best sours I have had.
