11.2 oz bottle: Pours cloudy dark gold color white head that retains slightly. Aroma of sour apple juice. Medium carbonation; tastes like carbonated vinegar apple juice. Not too fond of this beer type but it is refreshing.

Pours a pale yellow straw color with a fizzy disappearing white head. Sour nose of old ale tartness. Tart taste without the fruit palate of darker old ales. Light on the tongue and very refreshing with hints of lemon and vanilla. Nice beer.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2008 330 ml. Mostly clear, orange-gold with a three finger head that leaves some frosty lace. Aroma is tart fruit and slight malt vinegar. Flavor is reversed: malt vinegar bests the tart fruit (lemon-cherry), some earthy funk, and soggy wood. Light-medium body is smooth, watery and acidic-tingly-dry.

een onversneden oud bier dat aan de basis ligt van vele Bavikbieren.
Heeft de echte houtsmaak van de foeders, toch een iets zoetere afdronk. Het bier is gecommercieerd voor de Amerikaanse markt maar hier gewaardeerd door vele bierproevers

Bottle. Thanks Christian. Pours clear gold with a white head. So very matured aroma - sour, sweet, vinous, barrel, oak, freshness. Good mouthfeel & great Sour ale.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2009 Bottle... poured like apple juice with a thin white head. Aroma of floral apples and wine. Very flavorful drink with lots of tart fruit and sourness. Each sip became more enjoyable. Great sour ale with a finish that could almost make you pucker.

20070610 Not sure of serving, Spuyten Beast of the Yeast. Dark golden with nice but small creamy white head. Aroma is bretty, floral, nice bready malts, orange, and musty apple funk. Smells like a produce aisle in an early summer market. Flavor is bitingly tart. Nice acidity, quick brisk finish. This is a treat that I enjoy whenever I get the chance and, if available locally, I’d keep on hand at all times.

Bottle - batch 38826. Pours a golden color with initial 3 finger head that fades into a top layer. Really carbonated with great lacing. Nose is feet, funk, wood and lemons. Palate is citrusy tart with some cheesy funk and aspirin. Medium mouth feel. Alcohol is well hidden. It’s a decent sour.

I am surprised to see some of the low ratings for this. This is a nice little underrated sour ale. Beautifully effervescent, sour cherry, old and woody tasting, deep and earth, with a well balanced sour component that is almost vinous. Enjoyable.
