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).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 330ml from Burg Bieren, Ermelo, Netherlands.Gold with white head. Initial sour nose, fruity, tart, this translates into the beer, but in a particularly pleasing way, sharp, floral with a hint of spicy yeast. Good depth, lemony, an assault on the taste-buds but never a trial. Good stuff.

It is sour, it is Flemish and it is no lambic. I’ve been looking forward to taste this beer, and I wasn’t disappointed. 6th DRG. Golden color, slightly hazy. Citric, woody aroma. Very citric flavor, medium to full bodied, with some cream in the aftertaste. Raspberry. Some hopcharacter. Really great.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (alko - via mirjukka - thanks!)
Clear amber with a healthy tight pale head. Light fruit sweetness and sourness. Soft and sour on the tongue. Bursting with refreshing light malty tastes before you even swallow, and a very pleasant sourness that zings on the tongue, and builds up to be the major flavour after swallowing. The light malt character is very mellow, but I can’t actually pinpoint the oak in the aging that this is usually a sign of. The finish is in part quite dry, but not drying, and otherwise more of the mellow light malts. And no hint of 7.3% - fantastic - I’d session this without a second thought! A few acidic esters stop this from really excelling, but it is a very tasty beer on the whole.
