3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful golden color; big bubbles are forming on the glass surface; nice lace. Aroma of barnyard; woody. Very dry mouthfeel, initially, getting quite astringent at the end; malt flavor and old hops, a good sourness and light fruitness (grapefruit); thin, but with some complexity derived from the wood. The final is somehow empty (and this turns me down), with a reminescence of old hops. Very similar to a gueuze. Better when colder.

Reminded me somewhat of Rodenbach Grand Cru - no hops, oaky sourness. Not my cup of tea, but a decent attempt at the style.

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)

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Botlle at t’Waagstak in Antwerp. Golden with white head. Sour, farmyard aroma. But little bit of sweetness too. Sourness builds up in mouth, but the feel is quite velvety too. The farmyard carries on to teh end which has a mix of sweet and sour. A real change from the brown beers that I had been drinking. Some lemon. I like this, good mix and balance
