Originally mislplaced in Winter Ale: Max’s Taphouse, Baltimore tap ($7.75): I am assuming that this is the beer I drank. It was called winter sour at the bar. I suppose the guy below me had the same thing. Anyway, it poured a brownish color. Had a woody, very fruity, and vinegar aroma. Light sourness, very light. Some peculiar maltiness. This rating maybe should be moved...

Hazy orange color with small white head. Spicy yeasts, orange peel, Wit smell. A bit bretty. Taste is more spice and oranges. Bitter finish with a hint of sourness. Smooth mouthfeel. Refreshing and better than their other winter beer. Not too great either though.

King_Alex_II (641) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Cloudy yellow color with moderately lasting foam. Witbeer resembling smell (with some herb notes). The ginger and orange tastes work well with the (very decent) sourness. Nice and refreshing, but not really sour but a bit doughy.

AirForceHops (4530) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 31, 2014
750 ml bottle. God this was a gusher, slow fizzy head that took like five minutes to die before I could drink it. Aroma is ginger root and light fruit. The flavor is a mix of sour and tart. Decent balance. Real drinkable for a guy that doesn’t slam back sours. Body is effervescent ... Go figure, soild overall.

CObiased (111) - - DEC 21, 2014
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 (3287) - 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.

yngwie (15390) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2014
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.

Tmoney99 (11915) - 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.
