3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: a combination of apple juice concentrate and mushy brown apples beneath an apple tree in autumn, honestly, thatís the aroma that predominates to me, and Iím not even sure if apples are in any way involved in the brewing of this beer; Appearance: a very pale yellow on the pour that turns more orange/golden as you fill up the glass, light, white head that quickly dissipates after the pour, decent, consistent streams of bubbles that collect at the edge of the glass; Taste: a strong sour punch without any sweet (aka: not candy-like) upon initial draught, followed almost immediately by a bitter aftertaste and maybe something reminiscent of medicine, indeed, this is a very strange beer, maybe some soggy wood in there somewhere, the malts are hidden behind the sour, but, to me, the hops are completely masked by the sour, I still taste something apply, maybe almost apple vinegar, since I love sour ales, this is all very good to me, but Iím pretty certain that my wife would resolutely refuse to finish the glass after the first draught; Palate: mostly, the sour lingers, not a lot of complexity in the palate, mostly, I think, because the hops are so masked by the sour; Overall: a nice sour ale experience, since I still donít have many sour ale experiences under my belt, I canít really say one way or the other whether or not this is superior in its class...Iíd definately recommend it to an adventurous beer drinker though!

0,33l fles gedeeld met bryanvdv, goudgel biertje met wit schuim. Geur van fermenterende druiven met gist. In de smaak trekkend droog als een droge champagne met zure appels.

Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Goudgeel helder bier bijna geen schuim. Aroma is fris, zurig. Smaak is als witte wijn, licht zuur. Afdronk is mooi.

On tap at the mayor. Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma is yeasty and sour, with some spice and citrus notes. Flavor is bananas, cloves, yeast in the finish, nice sour character.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: clear pale straw with a very slight haze. Light white head that persists. Lifted sour notes. Old oak. Bright. While sour itís clean. Citrus, vinegar. Layers of aroma. Like a sherry. Nutty. Very dry. Sour and low bitterness. Very fresh and clean. Like drinking lime or lemon juice. Very long and fine. For a sour itís so pure. High carbonation. Feels much lighter than 7%.
Absolutely love this beer. Everything I dry not to make it wine but itís fresh and balanced. Wonderful!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle to tulip glass, beer pours a cloudy gold color with a small white head that quickly disappears. Aroma is green apples, latex gloves, pear, wine, citrus fruits and vinegar. Taste is tart/sour with some apple and lambic flavours...surprising amount of caramel to balance too. Palate is thin, co2 high, balance...not really balanced but itís a good combo of sweet/sour. Overall, very good beer. Quite enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a pale golden color. Whispy foamy head. Flavor is very white wine like. Tart apples, grapes, just a hint of sweetness at the back end. Slightly fizzy. Definite style points for uniqueness. FYI works really well with a nice aged cheddar.
