Had at Capone’s. Pour is a clear orange body. Off white head. Aroma is tart fruits. Strawberry. Flavor is a non overwhelming tart fruit of Berry and hints of hops.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2010
Bottle from Ølbutikken in Copenhagen. The pour is golden and totaly clear. The head is impressive. Its high lasting and frothy as hell. The nose is fine sour with fresh green grapes and lots of acidic notes like vinegar. Somewhere behind the sourness theres a notable malty base topped with some spicy notes like pepper. The taste is not as sour as the aroma but is balanced by a fine sweetness like melons. The mouthfeel is rather creamy and pretty buttery that gets more markedly through the finish. Really nice sour. Go grap it

skaughty (650) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2004
The sour apple aroma doesn’t hide from the second the cap is loosed. The pour is surprisingly mellow, with a champagne-like effervescent yellow/gold result. The taste has two stages - the first is a harsh sour vinegar kick-in-the-pants. what follows is full, sweet and fantastic. White grape and pear appear, as well as i touch of wood and leather. The finish is completely satisfying, with the perfect mix of sweet and sour.

Bontus (648) - Flanders, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2012
33cl bottle @ Geroen tasting. Pours with a pineau de charente color, minimal head. Nose is very astringent, caskwood, oak, & sour green apples. Aroma more of the same, but in a blast. Amazing wood aroma. Superb sour taste, mellow enough to enjoy, but very ’potent’. No remarks on the palate.

Moravius (647) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2014
Flasche (33 cl), 6 Monate über dem MHD. - Dunkles Goldgelb, klar. - Nase kräftig sauer mit holzigen und weinigen Noten. - Antrunk scharf milchsäuerlich mit einem Stich ins Essigsaure, abgemildert durch viel Frucht: Limonensaft, grüne Äpfel. Mild rezent, recht volles Mundgefühl. Süße ist kaum mehr vorhanden, aber eine leichte Honignote im Hintergrund. Stark saurer, leicht holziger, sehr trockener Abgang. Herb-säuerlicher Nachtrunk mit muffiger Kellernote. - Extremes Bier, aber ein erstklassiger Durstlöscher. Erinnert sehr an Gueuze. Die zweite Flasche schmeckte mir schon wesentlich besser als die erste. Mein Lieblingsbier wird es aber trotzdem nicht ...

Golden color. Smells dusty and sour. Good flavor. Can’t believe the ABV. Well hidden.

TizzleJizzle (640) - Garland, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle from the Bottle Shop Dallas. Tart on the nose. Poured a clear light yellow color with a thin white top and nice lacing. Taste of cherries, acidic, spice. Great carbonation. Overall I wish it was as complex as other sour ales.
