3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A hazy orange beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet slighlty malty and slihgtly alcoholic. The flavor is very malty and slightly sour - as if it has been wildfermented, this gives it a hint of grapefruit, and a dry end. The mouthfeel is very carbonated. From drinking it I’d categorize it as a Flemish Sour, not a Belgian Ale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle 65 cl) Hazy orangey golden with a small, off-white head. Lightly sour nose. Weak flavour of caramel malt on a surprisingly thin body. Weak acidity but otherwise nothing much. Hugely disappointing. 120805

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled at RBESG (thanks to beerhandy for sending it!). Hazy amber. Plenty of lactic acid in the nose, then almondy Belgian style malt character takes over for a whilr until citric strikes back in the finish. Surprisingly light bodied. Fresh and complex, but Pizza Port’s very best sour ales are even better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(750ml bottle, #45) Pours a cloudy amber body with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is tart with grapes and malt. Flavor is sour and fruity with a malt backbone. Quite different for a the classifcation of a dubbel; seems more like a saison.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
750ml bottle-pours a thin white head with deep red color. Aroma isdark fruit. I think it’s infected as it has a gueze character. Will go on that basis and bump up from actual experience, and hopefully get to rerate.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled @ RBESG2005: This was one of the dissappointments for me. Orange coloured. Unclear. Not much head. Sweet and vague fruity aroma. Very sour and acidic flavour. Is quite onedimensional and totally dominated by sourness. IMO lacs some sweetnes to balance. Ends on a very dry acidic note.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Murky, deep amber ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention with sparse, ink-blot lacing. The nose is of dark raisins, caramel, brown sugar, bread dough, dried plum, cinnamon and buttermilk. The acetic flavor boasts notes of black bread dough, toffee, alcohol, dark fruit and sour apple. Medium-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Medium length, very tangy, dry finish. Thanks go out to dark elf for the bottle.
