Poured from bomber. Big fluffy head but quickly dissipates. Great nose full of citrus, yeast and spice. Not very sour but nice. My label is mostly yellow and reads "ale brewed with oranges and ginger". Super tasty citrus flavors - lemon, lime, zest and some orange meld with Belgian yeast. Good but definitely not worth the $.

shigadeyo (3079) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - DEC 5, 2014
White-yellow color, very cloudy; huge white head, uber-uber-carbonated. Yeasty aroma with a tinge of candied lemon peel. The flavor is a nice juxtaposition of sweet maltiness (like the outside of a Lemonhead) followed by a tangy lemony tartness (like the inside of a Lemonhead). I’m simplifying quite a bit, but that’s the general idea. A touch soapy in the finish. Medium body, very smooth. Quite different and very good.

Botte, 75cl, at Baran. It’s an unclear, yellowish golden beer topped by a big, creamy, white head leaving lacings. The aroma is lightly funky, with citrus peel, some lime and a light coriander seed touch. The flavor too is a bit funky, with a nice bitterness, a little sour touch and citrus peel and some coriander. Yeast hints. A bit heavy on the carbonation, but in a nice way. A bit thin on the palate. A very refreshing and nice beer indeed. 140906

Draught. Hazy hay yellow liquid with enormous white head. Aroma of white pepper, lemon peel, apple skin, bread, barnyard and leather. Taste is dry and light sour with notes of lemon, white pepper, barnyard and apples. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Quite nice.

Aniela (2462) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2014
Draught at Bishop Arms Savoy, Malmö december 2013. Pale golden beer with a lacy white head. Sourish, rubber, grapefruit aroma. Similar flavour with some spicy hints.

Tmoney99 (11103) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Tap. Poured a clear reddish amber color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour & tart fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart fruit flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

Draft at Madtree. Pours a hazy yellow color with a large fluffy white head. The aroma and flavor have lemony citrus, a hint of orange, Brett, funk, mildly sour, dusty and dry finish.

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with two fingers of fizzy white foam. The nose is light with a grainy cereal like backbone thats kissed with orange zest and minerality. The palate follows and is light and spritzy with lots of seltzer like minerality, straw, and soft spiced citrus notes. The grain holds the body from being too watery but the flavors are a bit subdued and restrained to make this a great beer.

750ml bottle thanks to Lukaduke for sharing! Pours hazy golden orange with fluffy medium head. Nose is tart citrus and spices, light funk. Taste is hay, spices, fluffy, orange, herbal. Finish is dry tart citrus and herbs. Pretty good.

Bottle. Split with and care of Tom. Pours glowing, nearly opaque tangerine with a fat, airy white head. Aroma is lemon, barn, and orange. Taste is lemon and esters, with no trace of sour except a little funk in the finish. The bitterness of the orange gives this a weird balance, and there’s no cutting sourness to highlight the citrus flavor. Not too great.
