hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle 0.33l. Extrem gusher. What came out of the bottle after minutes of foam was murky orange with an off white head. Aroma is sour, apples, unripe plums, metallic. Taste is light bitter, medium sweet, medium sour, some honey, apples, unripe berries. Aftertaste is slightly sour, bit boozy. Not my cup of.... but still drinkable.

Draft at Eight Ball. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white/yellow head. The aroma and flavor has sweeter malt, honey, fruity, mild resiny hops in the front, floral nose, some Abbey Tripel notes. I didn’t really enjoy this one much.

danielyabu (1482) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - MAR 15, 2014
huge frothy white head. excellent lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick caramel body. aroma: grape, white wine, alcohol. if: moderate sweet light acidic. ff: moderate sweet light acidic bitter; average duration. palate: light medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, light astringent finish.Dulçor maltado. Ligeiro amargor de casca de limão no final. Bem refrescante. Tomar cuidado ao abrir: perdi mais da metade da garrafa com a pressão. Lembra bem mais uma sour red/Brown (mais leve que a média) do que uma BSA. Aliás, de BSA, não tem nada. Fora a presença no aroma, não demonstra nada dos 8% de teor no paladar. O sabor lembra bastante vinho branco. 130 s

psilosophy (637) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - FEB 8, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2015 Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur orangée, légèrement floconneuse. Mousse assez abondante et de belle tenue. Des arômes fruités, fruits exotiques; orange, pointe de vanille en fin de bouche, finalement assez complexe et bien équilibrée. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Plosgataert. Edit du 24 Aout 2015 : Attention, bière dangereuse : elle m’ a littérallement explosé à la figure à l’ ouverture, je n’ ai pu en sauver que 10cl!!

beeebon (372) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
A hazy orange coloured beer with minimal but lingering head. Taste is various fruits like apple (reminding me of cider at times), pear, grapes and plum. Added to this is the yeast and some spice. The taste is sweet and a little sour with mild bitterness. A very decent beer.

(Drinking date: 1 February 2014) Orange hazy colour, head disappears quickly. Smells like honey and ripe fruits. The taste is a bit sweet, almost not bitter. So it has a sweet taste, but not too sweet. You taste things like ripe fruits. It is really delicious! The mouthfeel of the beer is almost perfect. It has a bit of a thick mouthfeel, it feels soft, and it leaves an enjoyable warm feeling in your mouth and throath. It would have been perfect if it has a little bit more carbonation. Overall I really enjoy this beer!
