4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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!
