Eerst even gekeken wat voor soort bier dit was en dan kun je de verrassing toch beter waarderen. Zurig ik moest toch denken aan de krieken.

This beer pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. The aroma is malty sour, the flavor is the same although not overly sour. Not really a fan of the sours but this one was pretty decent. Cheers!

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2008
Bottle, Belgian Belly, Chorlton. Poured a clear true golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma was intensely woody mixed with sour green apple. Flavour had obvious evidence of the oak barrel aging. Wasn’t overtly sour and struck a good balance between the woodiness and the fruit. Definite cider parallels. Finish was sour if a little short.

Reminded me somewhat of Rodenbach Grand Cru - no hops, oaky sourness. Not my cup of tea, but a decent attempt at the style.

Pours a clear golden with a tinge of orange, small white head. Grain, green apple, cheese, biscuits, dry malt, floral hops. Not that sour, and pretty heavily carbonated. Not a very good sour in my opinion.

Pours clear dark golden color with thin white head. I can smell the sour aroma from a foot away. Sour lemon flavor with a touch of oak. Thin body with moderate carbonation.

travita (3913) - Frisco, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Goldenish in color, clear looks, white decent head. The smell is wood, florals, fruits, and tart. The taste is slight tartness, oak, fruits, and some hops.

markas101 (1833) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 2, 2010
33 cl bottle, Fargo, ND, USA. Slighlty hazy orange tinged golden colour. Single stream of carbonation in the middle of the glass. Citrus and ginger aroma; massively sour first sip that has a lime-like reaction in the mouth. A bit of a challenge, but after settling in very interesting.

pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head, and good lacing. smell of wild yeast, some citrus, and a touch of malt. taste is tart, sour malt, wild yeast, and some woodiness, ends acidic, tart, and a tad bitter. overall too tart.
