Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma is tart with a hint of apple. Mouth feel is very lively. Flavor is close to the aroma, with a nice tartness that is not overbearing. This may be the most dry tasting beer Iíve ever had, which is not a complaint. Finish is exceptionally clean leaving your tongue ready for another sip.

11.2 oz bottle (Thanks to Jess). Not too bad here, but I do find this one a bit unexciting even though it is a stronger sour. The aroma is mostly mixed sour mild-sweet fruits with apples and berries, minor cheesy bread, and a bit of oak. The pour was pretty. A nice creamy, soapy white head, good retention and lacing, and a light, sharp looking orange-gold body. Maybe slightly too acidic with just a twinge too much cheesy yeast, the sour profile is definitely a main player on the taste, but its not overdone. Also, some oaky earth, light mixed berries, and bread. Overall, I liked this, but definitely not my favorite sour.

11.2 oz bottle from Zipps. Golden colored pour with a foamy white head. Aroma is tart, sour, fruity (apple?). Flavor is more of the same, with a bit of a pucker inducing tartness. Finish is a bit like a sour apple cider.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Golden color, with a medium white head. Aroma is that not unlike many of the lighter wines. Damn, that first sip is sour. Once you adjust to the sourness a little, you notice a nice fruity taste in the background. Interesting, complex beer.

Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Goudgeel helder bier bijna geen schuim. Aroma is fris, zurig. Smaak is als witte wijn, licht zuur. Afdronk is mooi.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 2, 2010
Smells slightly of wood and citrus/lemon, though maybe thatís influenced by the salmon Iím eating right now... reminds me A LOT of a champagne. Nice hazy yellow with slight red hues, no sediment in bottle, not much head, some lacing. Taste is a bit shockinginly strong! Wood and alcohal flavour, tapers off to revel the champagne dryness, sweetness. Quite smooth, not much bubbles on the tounge (unlike champagne), a bit of yeast flavour. Not bad, a bit of a shocker, very strong flavoured.

dandeman (484) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
Aroma: Wild yeast is coming up the nose right from the start accompanied by wood accents, hazelnuts and orange. Appearance: Very clear yellow / straw with a creamy white head that is holding quite long. Taste: Wood and hazelnut notes are back with a slight bitterness as finish. We can also find little notes of barley sugar and honey. But the acidity is very intense.
