guzzler67 (1507) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Clear, golden/amber appearance with a small white head and little lacing. Tart, green apple aroma with a hint of vinegar. Taste is acerbic, fruity, earthy, vinous to a degree. Wonderfully complex, shifting flavors. Dry,woodsy, long lasting finish.

larsga (6218) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2007
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.)

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2007
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!

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Golden color with a huge head. Smell of sour white grapes, oak, some hops and malt, dirt, lemons and spice. Taste of sour fruit, bubble gum, tartness, rust, oak/wood, hops and a very sweet/tart bitter aftertaste. I am starting to enjoy these Flemish sour ales!

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2007
The beer looks like a very light honey color with a thin white head on my pour. The nose was nice citrusy sour that had a uniquness I can’t describe. Perhaps the oak? The body had a wonderfuly sour apple flaovr too it.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy pissy golden lager color, with a huge rigid white head. Great lacing and head retention. Nose is that of a slightly sour brown sugar, as well as some acidic citrusy tang. Wow what an explosion of flavor. There is a slight hint of bubblrgum sweetness accentuated by a powerful sour edge. I love the balance on this beer, and will continue to return.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2007
A downright ugly pour. Dull yellow or dirty brass, thin head, slight leggy lace. Old urine nose. Sharp acidity, sour green apples, dry sherry, woody but more beech than oak. Some metallic notes and nutmeg-like sharpness. Not a lot of depth, as some other sour beers I’ve tried. Thin overall. I find their "Commercial Description" rather telling.
