4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I really liked this stuff. 330 ml bottle. Poured hazy yellow with a smallish head. Aromas were citrus and sour apple and currant. The flavor did not vary much from that execpt that the tartnes was more profound. Very tart and vinous. Very tasty. I like it!!!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Golden, clear, nice white head. Acidic fruity nose, like a Rodenbach GC or Panil. Malty acidic flavors. Wood. Lingering acidity. Not too overpowering, but pleasant. Not very heavy on the palate. Almost reminds me of a Berliner Kindle Weiss. This is in fact, refreshing.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I really like this beer. The acid puckered my lips at first, I was little overwhelmed. But as the palate adjusts, this is as crisp and refreshing as a beer can be. Clean as all get-out on the way down, and yet still complex. Difficult to describe the flavor... I will be buying this again and again though. Petrus has impressed me heavily with their tripel and now this.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled A clear, lightly amber body, with an off-white frothy head. The aroma is overwhelming. When you remove the cap, the aroma fills the air and makes you happy. And by sniffing the glass, odours of wine, white port, citric hops welcome you and beg you to drink the beer. Heavily sour, light bitter initial flavour. Moderately sour, lightly bitter finish. Very well-balanced beer, despite a very lightly watery flavour. Fizzy carbonation. Medium bodied. This is a very good example of the flemish sour style. I find it a pity Bavik doesnít sell this in Belgium. If Rodenbach can sell Rodenbach Grand Cru in Belgium quite well, Bavik certainly can sell this one as good as Rodenbach can sell the Grand Cru.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 mL capped bottle: deeply hazed light golden maple syrup colour with a minimal ivory cream. Sweet, yet tart green apple, yellow cake and oak aromatics. Brett and tannins combine on top of lemon zest and bitter honey. Tart and lightly astringent palate with fresh strawberries, green apple flesh, blackberries and acidic white grapes. Simply gorgeous palate, tingling and effervescent. A true gem.
