Oak aged aroma really comes through with this one. Sour, vinegar, and white wine in the nose. Seems to have some spices in there as well. Complex indeed. Tart, white wine flavors. Very dry finish. Alcohol burn and warming in the throat. Interesting beer, but would not be one of my favorites.

Bottle poured into a Duvel glass. Nice clear orange with a foamy white head that sticks around for a while. Nose is tart and a bit funky, with apple cider vinegar and green grape notes. Flavor is nice and tart, a little acetic, definite lemon notes, a little bitterness. Enjoyable and refreshing. I wasn’t expecting a sour, so this was a nice surprise.

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

Aroma is sour but Hints at some sweetness. Color is orange with almost no head. Taste is at first overpoweringly sweet, but is then balanced nicely by sweetness. The light carbonation creates a finish that focuses on sweet but not sour.

Good beer from a good friend with bad taste. He doesn’t like beer, but he bought this bottle and I got a tick.

Amber colour, clear body. Small white stable head. Aroma of yeast, light malty, cherries, leaves. Sweet initial flavour, more acidic and sour long lasting finish. Long and mouthfilling aftertaste. Truly good palate.

Pours a hazy gold with a one finger white head, the aroma is very sour with some hay and grass like qualities. The taste is sour as well with some wheat and hay and very slight oak flavors. This is a standard sour very unoffensive and easy to drink, this would be a great intoduction sour for anyone who hasnt had a sour before. Solid stuff!

bottle. Bright clear amber with practically no head... some little fizzy bubbles that disappear in seconds. Aroma dominated by sharp fruity tartness with some earthy wood notes in the background. Flavor adds more dimensions that shown in the nose... some not-overpowering sharp tartness- not the acidic sourness of brett, a more woody even tartness. Notes of honey, citrus fruit, and mellow sweet grains in the background. Very good and balanced. Crisp and clean on the palate, with little to no lingering finish. Overall a very enjoyable and approachable sour ale.
