biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Bottle. Poured a light-amber, with some reddish hints. Small bubbly head. Aroma was fruity sweet, sour and some woodiness. Flavor was a bit tart (but nice), a little sweet (not much), a little yeasty, something earthy/grassy and a little malt. Very refreshing. Nicely balanced. Tasty.

Dorwart (2341) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Thin frothy white head of fine bubbles. Sweet oaky aroma with some stinky feet, white grapes and tart apples. Color is a medium golden apple juice. Dry acidic and tart. Fizzy in the mouth and makes the salivation glands kick into high gear. More tart apples and white grape. Little oak. Very dry and puckering finish with a little lingering sweetness. A decent flemish sour ale. Although these are not really my style.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2006
Clear pale amber with a foamy white head. Tart/sour apple aroma, white vinegar, very acidic. Very tart taste. A good example of a style Im not fond of but will give it credit.

JoshuaB (474) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Solid. Not the best Ive had in the style, but solid. Pours an awesome orange straw color, with rich velvety white head. Light malts provide the background for the nose. Also in there is Brett, grassy notes, and some light green grapes. Leather belt in there as well. Taste is a blast of pale malts and some funky wild yeast. rather sweet for the style, but not overly so, balances out the tartness well. Maybe some vanilla in the finish. Pretty good.

Otje (677) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2006
Bottle. Delirium cafe, Brussel. Great citric and acidic cellar notes, like gueuze, in the nose; woody, fruity, some horseblanket and barnyard. Sourrish, woody, cherries and citric acidity in the flavour(funky? yes!). Finishes tart, dry and fruity. Just great!

badnewsbeers (2317) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2006
excellent..orangish, amber pour with no head..aroma is very flemish in nature, and consists of light apricot and peach notes, with the usual vinegar and wine...flavor starts off with these such flemish characteristics, and finishes very lambic (gueze) like....very sour, dry, and somewhat bitter finish...nice palate, and an excellent and unique brew

ryan (3187) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle code 38643. Can anyone decipher this? Pours a clear pale into my Rodenbach glass. Big, fizzy white head, quickly fading, crazy lacing. Aroma is heavy horse blanket, barny, some lacto, light vinegar, chardonnay, some oak. Flavor starts out sour, with a nice hit in the side of the jaws. Yogurt, lemon, pineapple, plenty of bretta-funk, and again Im reminded of a very dry chardonnay, some honey and just a touch of sweetness comes in midway though to ease up on the tartness. A bit of cheeries and peaches at the end to round out the flavor nicely. Medium/light body with a tart, tannic finish. Wow.

marcus (6011) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 4, 2006
This golden ale poured with a modest lacy white head, eliciting a vinegar aroma. The flavor is sweet/tart, somewhat like a good lambic, with an acidic mouthfeel.

BeerandBlues2 (9068) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2006
2003 bottle. Pours cloudy dark straw, hay yellow with a medium sized rocky white head, fizzy and some spotty lacing, head mostly lasts. Aroma is sour berries with lemon zest notes, faint sweet fruit (pear) and yeast (oak, cellar). Initially flavor is heavily tart, sour and acidic, then slowly fades to a sour berry flavor, green apple tartness, not as dominant as at first. Medium bodied and fizzy, foamy and spicy palate.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2006
Amber colour, clear body. Small white stable head. Aroma of yeast, light malty, cherries, leaves. Sweet initial flavour, more acidic and sour long lasting finish. Long and mouthfilling aftertaste. Truly good palate.
