Pours clear golden with a well retained off white colored head. Very clear, which caught me a bit off guard. Aroma is moderately sour and fruity, apples and pears. Flavor is more sour than the aroma let on, but not overly so. Extremely refreshing and the finish is very fruity. Bon boisson!!

Wow is this beer sour. I have nothing else like it save for Lindeman’s Geuze Lambic Cuvee Rene. It’s a real trip. I love trying new things but this is something else entirely. Definitely give it a try for a shocking experience.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cooked apples/applesauce in the woody aroma with some spiciness. Hazy golden-straw coloured body is topped by shy white cover of large-bubbled head. Short, sharp, tart flavour is mildly acidic. Leafy green apples and woody character are very strong. Some light, though lasting sourness on the tongue. Medium-light body with strong carbonation. Stem glass, allowed to warm from fridge temp. Bottle (Half Time, Mar. 2005) sampled with Olivier and Rastacouere.

Pours light clear straw with lively carbonation and a fluffy head of very fine bubbles. Aroma is a medium tartness with apples, some light wheat/hay. Flavor is mildly tart, apples, berries and a mild wheat. Very crisp and refreshing. Definatly does not seem like a 7% beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2005 33 cL bottle, snifter. Slightly hazy, deep golden hue reminiscent of orange blossom honey. Froth and somewhat foamy white head is on the small side but well lasting. Pungent and refreshing Acetobacter vinegar aroma sits upfront. Rich and spicy Gewürztraminer qualities are layered over oaky and toasty chardonnay hues. Tones of pears, yellow cherries and flowers round out the aroma. Flavor is similar, but more focused on the vinegar tartness and less on the vinous qualities. The flavor starts with tart and toasty flavors and segues into a cleansing fresh, fruit acidity. Medium-full bodied with an oily texture and lively carbonation.
