3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber pour with a white head. Nose is somewhat acetic with a light grapefruit quality. Some slight malt sweetness, light musty funk, and a hint of wood. Quite sour on the palate. Some definite vinegar notes, a light citric acidity, and mild malt sweetness in the background. There’s a little bit of funk to it and a light vinous quality.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Okay, I read Bill’s rating and I’m thinking ’what’s wrong with that?’ Golden with a substantial nose (brett, fruit, wine - reminds of Rodenbach Red). The body is light, vibrant, complex, acidic. So drinkable, so refreshing. If you like this, check out Vapeur d’Antan.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sour fruit - cherries and apples? - for aroma. A bit of yeast. Hazy golden color with a fine white head. Starts with apple, passes to generic sour, then to an oaky yeasty finish. Something like a sour gueze (some aren’t). Extremely dry, even astringent. Definitely puckers the mouth. Apple is ever present.
