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.

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!

clear dark yellow / golden, slal non-lasting white head.
wood , sourness, rubber in the aroma, also some exotic fruits. quite acid.
flavor is tat, vineagra. sour stingy flavor, but quenching and not too vineagra’ish. reminds me a little of spanish sidra natural (no relation reg. ingredients etc. but the sourness is a little alike).

Golden with a weak head. The aroma is sourish just like the flavour that has notes of fruit and wood. It’s a nice flemish sour.

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.

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