4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A wonderful, mostly alcolohol-ey aroma and an enticing head lead you to think you’re about to taste an ale along the lines of an abbey brew, but taking that first sip makes you think "gueuze" rather than "monastery"! Acidic and sour, but as others have noted it is done just right to make this a very refreshing beer with excellent drinkability. This one will go down fast, so make the most of it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
First off, this is no oud bruin, look at it, its yellow for God’s sake! The beer is a beautiful pale yellow and looks like a gueuze. It smells quite enticingly sour, a little brett funkiness and a little cereal? The flavor is nice and sour but not abrasive. tart and lemony this is a good sour and I can’t believe I’ve passed it up so many times in the past. the price wasn’t too bad for a sour at $5 for a 330ml.

330ml bottle from 16th St Liquor in West Vancouver. Poured a clear gold with a thin white head and moderate lacing. Malty and acidic up front with a floral hop character and a barnyard finish. More subtle flavors can be detected but are very soft; vanilla, lemon, and green apple. Finish is well balanced between a malty sweetness and acetic acid.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Well hidden alcohol - sour and slightly vinegary, but not in an overpowering way - really in a very refreshing way - oakiness comes through, but still very light. Excellent.

You notice the aroma before the color as it explodes out of the bottle.
Color is clear honeycomb and a plush, white pillow head looks nice but is gone too quickly.
The oak is amazing on the nose. Bright citrus, this is very difficult to describe....but I like it!
Full mouthfeel - the oak aging gives it some nice sour aspects. Complex, yet structured, taste with a chewy yeast throughout the palate.
Difficult to describe...yet so tasty.
