Dark yellow and only slightly hazy. Yeasty, apple-like nose. Somewhat weighty mouthfeel with a prickly, but moderate, carbonation. A little fruity (apples, lemons, and some hints of cider) and tart, with a healthy bit of sourness. Not much bitterness to speak of though. And the finish is mostly clean, and flavorless even.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2007 New rating. The body was dark gold with a little bit of haze. The aroma has some tart cherries and a little bit of blue cheese. The taste is tart and fairly dry with hints of vineous character. There is also blue cheese and some hay. Finishes fairly dry. Original rating follows. My first of the style. Pours from the bottle with very little head. A hazy gold color makes this attractive. I agree with others that it tastes like a geuze. A sour apple aroma with grass. The taste is tart with vinegar and a white wine dryness. Very dry.

this is my first "sour" ale and honestly i was not aware of what i was getting into.anyway,ill try and give it and open minded rating.the petrus poured out with a apple cider look,and smelled just like champagne.the taste was mostly sour with a bit of apple.reminds me of the sour apple cany strips.very different but not to bad.

Dark Mandarin Coloring with White Head. Gueze Characteristics...Bittersweet with a Dry Aftertaste. Not as Bitter as Most Sours..Nice Beer to Sip and Enjoy.

Very yeasty and very tart - nearly as sour as a lambic, which I don’t really care for. Slight woodiness, and slighlty vanilla and heather notes in the aroma. Its more difficult to define the essence of the flavor because it is so tart. Even refreshing, I’ll prefer this one with some mild or stinky cheese, but on its own, its not my thing.

Bottle.- Light golden colour. Sour, spicy nose. Very interesting taste, with notes of apples, vanilla and spicy hops.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours golden with a one finger thick white creamy head. Aroma is slight fermented fruit, oak, sweetness, and yeast. The flavor is super sour, sweet finish, fruit, and some oak. Not my style, but a good flemish sour.

kramer (5040) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2006
12 oz bottle, The Beeryard, Wayne PA. Pours a clear medium gold colored body with a small very fine bubbled bright white head. Aided in retention by my Chimay goblet. Aroma is quite tart with a balancing sugary sweetness. Some oak and fruity notes as well. Flavor is quite tart and tannic up front and fades to a drying acetic finish. Some raw oak, light pale malts, and some leafy hops. Mouthfeel is fairly light and airy with a thinnish texture and alot of fizzy efforvescent carbonation. Overall, this was quite an odd beer. Not the beer that I remembered from a few years ago. It had an almost lambic like feel to it.

alexanderj (3320) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Huge head; light orange-yellow color; a little bit hazy, but not much. Aroma was sour apples and yeast. Not a big fan of the style, but this is probably one i would enjoy the most. Flavor was sour apple, but not hugely sour which made it more drinkable. Didn’t pick up much on any oak. About average for me.

schuimkroaat (423) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2007
33 cl bottle, ’bbe’ April 08. Brass coloured, totally transparent. Scarce sparkle, the head is history in no time. Sharp lactic acid aroma with background of lightly fermented (home made) fruit jam. Dry, sour, fruity - apples? - quite wine-like. Light spicy finish, somewhat chalky mouthfeel.
