KajII (782) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2014
11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a lightly cloudy golden color with an average (1-2 finger) white sudsy head that reduced slowly, down to a thin film with a large collar and possessed excellent sheets of sticky lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt and a musty Belgian yeast with a note of citrus (lemon), a slight fruity ester (apples and pears), a hint of cask and a mild vinous scent.

The taste was sweetly tart and a tad acetic with some bold fruity overtones from the get go, becoming rather yeasty and a bit sour with a winey cider taste and a light bitter citrus appeal at the end. The flavor lasted and average time after consumption with a slight fruity vinegary taste left behind.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a thin dry texture and a rather prickly carbonation.

Overall this is a fantastic Wild Ale with a ton of sweet-sour flavor along with the perfect influx of fruit, which did a good job of hiding the semi-high ABV... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

brnandersen (1863) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2014
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Snifter. Clear, golden colour with a thin, white head. Tart aroma with acidic notes, vinegar, wood, lemon, dusty hops, earth, and citrus. Taste is sour. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation - tiny bubbles. Finishes lasting dry and tart with wood and lemons. Good, classic Sour.

shoulderbroken (1987) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle at Lombard. Nice sourness, aroma is very sour, gueuze like without the complexity. Taste is alright, more interesting than the aroma. Gueze like again, sweetness at the end.
