4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear straw head with medium white head. Aroma is very sour, vinegar, white grape, some barnyard, light cherry, wood. Taste is mild sweet, quite sour, vinegar, white grape, barnyard, some oak. Light, crisp body. Not a lot of sweetness, but enough to offset the strong sourness. The flavors coalesce into quite a tasty treat, assuming of course that you are into this sort of thing.

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.

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!

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.
