75cl, new exclusive brew Anno 2013, with flowers, from Geers Oostakker, complex brew, floral/sour and slightly spicy, not balanced, cloudy, good head, nothing special!

Nice. Sour but not acidic. Lots of subtle mulled cider spices , reminiscent if a grut beer. Very drinkable and refreshing. Unique

nealblind (757) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Cloudy cider pour big floaters. Aroma of lavender, dandelion ethanol. Tastes planty, belgo yeast, malt backbone, smooth sour. Finishes bitter from herbs? bizarre, balanced, unique.

Sample at Zythos 2014. Yes, it is sour and flowery. Rose petals, sour fruit, balsamico. Maybe a bit too flowery?

Countbeer (4425) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle: Served in a shaker: Foam snake. Off white foamy head on top of a hazy to murky orange amber colored beer. Aromas of spices, musk, apple pie/apple cake, cloves, some citrus, some rose mary, cinnamon and a hint of 7up. Flavours of white pepper, apple pie, cloves, citrus, bitter, sprinkle of rose mary, malts, some ginger, cinnamon and herbs... Aftertaste is cloves with yeast and light peppery touch, some bitters, citrus and malts. Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light watery texture. This is strange stuff, not bad but canít finish a 75cl of this strange beer... Though I came really far!

caesar (5120) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2014
Bottled @ de Molen, small sample. Hazy orange color, quickly disappearing frothy head. Aroma is very flowery, fly-paper, toilet-refreshener (is that a word?), bit spicy like íontbijtkoekí, hint of cinnamon. Soft sour taste, bit bitter. Weird brew. Im not a fan of big flowery aromaís (unless they are in a hoppy way) and certainly not together with spicy and sour stuff. Still, itís not that bad actually, though a bit messy.

dEnk (3803) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2014
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting. Aroma is huge floral notes, lavender, potpourri, some malt and a hint of sourness. Flavour is medium sourness, loads of floral notes. Way too much flowers. Yuck.

Very strange beer reminiscent of cinnamon and nutmeg. Strange dry slightly sour beer. Not my favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrW (420) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2014
Sample @ ZBFí14 Probably one of the most special beers I had @ ZBF. Hazy amber beer, color of biscuit, off white firm head, lasting. Aroma of biscuit, cinnamon, flowers, herbs, cookies. Taste is refreshing sour, but not the sour I had in geuze or kriek. Ginger, herbs, lightbitter, a bit soapy but nog anoyingly. Herby and cinnamon finish. This one was refreshing.

solidfunk (4005) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Sour version of some stillwater beer. Some tangy farm here and hibiscus flower evident. Light, palatable sour that taste ok. Tastes a little of tomato because one fell off my pizza - canít tell if the finishing product was positive overall. Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont.
