4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dull apricot color w/ a fast fading spritzy head that leaves behind a lingering lace. Aromas of tart to sour fruit. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers that explode on the palate creating a chewy cotton texture. Pleasantly sour and brisk. Flavors of under ripened peaches, green apples, sour grapes, and a touch of sodium. The finish is dry and has a lingering tartness. Overall: this brew is very enjoyable and well balanced. I was amazed to learn it was over 7% abv. I couldn’t tell at all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ GBBF ’07. Petrus? I thought upon Mes’ recommendation but little did I know what I was about to behold. Golden/amberish with a thin white head. Nose of citrus, lemon and lime, apple, yeast and a bit of hay. So much flavour from such a small 25cl bottle, it’s got qualities of a lambic and some subtle woody sour ale notes. Tart and citric, again lemon, lime and apple but also some subtle cherry sour ale notes with yeast, malt and a touch of oak. I’m so kicking myself that I didn’t grab any of these at Drunken Geese when I had the chance.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours golden in color and seems carbonated. Not much head. Very odd aroma. My friend had never had a sour and I let him try it and he was not too happy with it. Very tart and sour in flavor and great on the palate. One of the best sours I have had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy, golden-orange pour. Berry-like, sour fruityness and some barnyard in the aroma. The flavor is quite sour and berry-like as well. Medium, quite astringent mouthfeel. Truly a lovely beer, that surprised a bit. (070914)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. [thank you, Skortila!]
Thought this was only available in the states, but Jos found it in Holland, and I in Belgium. Pours a very clear golden cobber-orange with a lot of bubbles. A small creamy white head on top that stays for quite some time and leaves great ’fat’ lacing. Aroma is funk, muskyness, barnyard, slight sour fruit as well as a clear sweet caramel background. Lively and slightly spritzy mouthfeel. Flavour is impressive, quite tart at first, very dry. A lot of caramel hidden behind the usual lambic flavours. Apples and oak appear as well. Wonderful beer to try!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear dull yellow with a sizable egg-white head. Very sour aroma, cider-like. Flavour is dry and vinous, again, more cider than beer. Body is thin with subtle carb. What can I say... sours are not really my thing. Interesting to try, though.
