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.

Bottle, 7.3%. Acidic aroma, lactic. Clear golden colour, nice stable white head. The flavour is also acidic, distinctly, but not overwhelming. Has a good, satiating acidity. Actually quite good.

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.

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.
