Tap @ Beveridge Place Pub. Clear gold-orange pour with a brief white head leaving a moderate lace. Sour nose with a hint of sweet malt. Medium-light body with apple, white grape and lemon juice/zest notes. Some pepper and cinnamon spiciness in the nose and middle, but itís very mild. The oak comes through lightly in the middle and finish and there is also a light sweetness in the finish. There is also a very late metallic tinge.

11.2oz bottle: Appearance is golden brown with minimal white head. Aroma is slightly sour with hints of oak. Taste is an interesting mixture of sourness and mellow oak notes. Both are very distinct and blended well.

Nice sharp carbonation. Lots of funk, up front and dominating my palate. Lemon. Bret.

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2005
slightly opaque golden color with a medium off white head. Sour, yeasty aroma with some alcohol creeping in. Flavor is sour throughout, but only moderately so. finish is dry and somewhat bitter. seems to be a more mild example of a flemish sour ale.

Pours gold into the glass with a white head. Aroma is musty and reflects the tartness to come. Flavor is intense sourness that dries out the tongue and makes you want another sip. Great beer

gringo332 (535) - Richardson, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle. Vinegar and wine aroma. Crystal clear golden body with thin, quickly dissipating head. Flavor begins sour with funky notes. Subtle hints of grape and wheat. An even strong sour finish with hints of fruit.

SHOCKING! The smell wasnít what I expected but, that was nothing compared to the taste. I was so shocked by the taste. I wasnít the one that poured it and I was doing something else when I tasted it. It completely woke me up! My wife kept asking if this was really a beer. I would say that this is a perfect beer for anyone that says they donít like beer and they have only tried Bud and Miller.

I generally donít like these super sour fruity beers, but this one is more bearable. The sourness doesnt overwhelm as much as others do. While I canít say I am crazy about it, I donít mind drinking it.
