schuimkroaat (421) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2007
33 cl bottle, ’bbe’ April 08. Brass coloured, totally transparent. Scarce sparkle, the head is history in no time. Sharp lactic acid aroma with background of lightly fermented (home made) fruit jam. Dry, sour, fruity - apples? - quite wine-like. Light spicy finish, somewhat chalky mouthfeel.

radiomgb (2262) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2007
Golden amber in colour, medium sized quickly dissipating off-white head, spotty lacing. The aroma is sour, citrusy (lemons and oranges), musty, yeasty, sugary. Kind of reminded me of a faro. The flavour is dry and tart, good moderate sourness, yeasty, slightly acidic, apples, earthy, dark fruits. Dry mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes dry, sweet and lingering for some time. This is quite good, sort of a Flemish/Lambic hybrid.

330ml bottle obtained in a trade with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>Larry Pitonka, thanks Andre.
Vintage 2003.

Bottle. At first I had no idea what to think of this beer. Sour, and very bitter. But after a while, the beer was a very interesting mix that I was not faimiar with. Very acidic.

Big white head. Deep yellow body with carbonation. Light acidic fruit and wood aroma with tobacco and alcohol notes. Taste is clear acidic wooden and spicy with a touch of metal. Dry softly metallic and fruity aftertaste. Interesting, but a bit too sour without having enough else to offer. (0.33l bottle.)

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2007 Bottle. Pours a bright gold. Nice firm head with decent retention. Notes of baking sourdough bread, apples, toffee and citrus fruits on the nose. An explosion of flavor on the palate. Sour, dry, complex on the palate. Theres a lot going on there. Finishes of sour grapes. Very long. Excellent!
