Floback (523) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Bottle from Knightly Spirits. Pours a murky golden/orange with a centimeter of head that recedes within a minute. Sour vinegar aroma. Tart mouthfeel, more sourness in the body. Soy sauce, citrus, lemon, vinegar, candy Thin/medium carbonation and medium/full body. A tad too cloying for my taste, but I could drink this in small quantities.

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

bobaidan (505) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 20, 2007
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.

Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2010
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.
