Courtesy hopscotch. Thick looking golden pour. Sour vinous aroma, sour apple, slight funk. Mostly tart aromas, not much alcohol on the nose. Very acidic, sour apple taste, very intense sour finish. Sharp, pointed, and aggressive with the tartness. Fantastic.

Bottled (thx Karl). Clear and crystal golden coloured with almost no head. Nice mouthfeel with almost no carbonation. Great balance with notes of apple, barnyard, vinegar, berries and hints of grapes.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Courtesy hopscotch. Pours golden straw amber, with virtually no head. Wet lacing abound. Aroma is barnyard sour apple, with a brief meat and straw combo. Enjoyed the cider aspect of this for sure. Flavor is tart and delightful. Bitter cider, malt dive bombing and taking over. Total barnyard antics. Soft malty finish, sour bitter end. Alcohol is transparent; exceedingly drinkable. You will have to watch yourself with this one.

Courtesy hopscotch. Thanks a bunch for sharing this rare gem Eric! Pours a clear dark gold color, with no head at all. Almost had a cider look to it. I really dug the aroma, with some tart apples, funk, and sweet sourness as well. Great blend. The flavor is mostly tart apples as well, not overpowering sourness, butits definitely there. Seems to have great balance. Very cider-like in its features. Great, easy drinking brew. Quality.

hopscotch (8540) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Rating #4000... Bottle... Vero Beach Throwdown... This beer rocks!... Clear golden ale with amber highlights and a brief, fat-bubbled, white head. The earthy, tangy aroma provides notes of sweet black cherries, English toffee, wood and apple cider vinegar. Medium to full-bodied and lightly oily with carbonation that borders on soft. The fruity flavor is acidic, but there’s plenty of pale grain, red apple and toffee sweetness as well. Medium to heavily sour alongside medium sweetness and mild bitterness. The high ABV is not at all evident. The lengthy finish is mainly tart, lightly tannic and then dries out at the end. Another world class offering from one of my favorite breweries. Thanks go out to ygtbsm94 for shipping this rare, world class treat to me!

Hopscotch, thanks. Pours a crystalline amber, no head. The aroma is acetic, with hints of wood. Minor sour cherries and cider notes, perhaps green apples. The flavor is sour, yet slightly fruity. The touch of wood balances things out nicely. Good stuff.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - FEB 10, 2008
Bottle, Kulminator. Clear golden, no head. Sweet and sour, meady nose. Sweet faro and quite grainy. Mouth is WOW, really sour, some graininess, sweetness, nuttiness, cereal at the back. Some honey tones, but a good bolstering robust sour long finish. 10% disguised phenomenally well. Absolutely brilliant.

egajdzis (5196) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Poured a lightly hazy golden color with a small ring of white bubbles, and very light lacing left on the glass. Aroma of sweet cherries, acid, light vinegar, vanilla, wood, and some wild yeast. Taste of cherries, light vinegar, vanilla, honey, and wood, with a lengthy, sour finish.

JoeMcPhee (8212) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2008
Burnished golden colour with almost no head at all. Fresh bright aroma. Oaky vanilla, peach/pear and a bright acetic character. Good mix of flemish red tartness and pale fruitiness. Flavour is initially bright and acidic, but there is plenty of pale grainy malt and sweet apricot/berry behind it. Strong Rodenbach house character, which isn’t a bad thing. Very nice.
