Light golden pour with a clean white head. Aroma is vinegar, apple, lemon. Appealingly tart/sour. Flavor is the same. Fruity tartness in nice balance with a round sweetness. Slight vanilla from the oak, providing a nice smoothness and roundness to the experience. Apple juice and lemon are predominant flavors. Super thirst quenching. Sourness is quite strong but not too much. Could probably take some more sweetness to balance and give depth. I personally like more of a sweet/sour combination in these beers, and on that front it fall a bit short. Still a pretty nice beer.

Pours a hazy orange with medium white head, decent lacing. Aroma of funk, citrus (mostly orange). Flavor matches and makes for a pretty decent sour.

Quite sour, but very interesting. Sour golden raspberries. Iím just starting to appreciate the style, but this is enjoyable.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2003 Clear,slightly hazy,golden liquid. Head is soapy but hangs around.Little lacework. Heavy sweet,sour,woody aromas.Mouthfeel is TART.Quite a bit of carbonation as well.Light for a 7%beer. Delicate sweet flavors are surrounded by sour and woody notes. Finish is acidic and dry. Slight hop noticable as well,in finish. This is probably the most distinct tasting beer I have ever tasted.My favorite "sour" beer.

HIGHB4LL (555) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle from Wilburís. Appearance: slight white head, golden yellow color, clear. Aroma: vinegar, oak, some lemon hoppiness and honey sweetness. Palate: light body, dry finish, average carbonation, crisp. Taste: crisp sweetness, bitter and tart finish it off. Overall, unique, but I feel that the balance is off a bit. Still a great beer and something I will be buying more of.

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

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 26, 2010
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.

Bottle. Tart, malty aroma with vinous notes. Pours clear, golden colored with a thin white head and no lacing. Tart, vinous flavor with apple notes to start. Finishes dry with tart, vinous notes and a clean refreshing end. Pretty good.
