750 ml bottle courtesy of Theydon_Bois. Pours hazy pale golden with a small frothy white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity with crackers, lemon juice, lime juice, pineapple, peaches, star fruit, yoghurt, hay, dry soil, minerals and lemon zest. Taste is sour and fruity. Mouthfeel is dry, tart, mouthpuckering and light bodied. Finish is sour with crackers, lemon juice, lime juice, pineapple, peaches, yoghurt, hay, dry soil, minerals and lemon zest. Tasty simple citric-centered sour. Wouldn’t mind more depth though...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden color with good carbonated and a quickly dissipating foam head. The aroma reminds me of a good buttery white wine. I also noticed mango, lemon citrus, yeast, some oak, and there is barnyard scents too. While tasting I picked up on medium tart intensity, salty sour flavor, lemon, yeast, and it had some acidity in the finish. This was a good beverage, very kind to the palate. Overall I was not too crazy on the finishing taste, still I?d try this again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6 month old 500 ml bottle. Pours clear yellow with minimal head. Nose is mild, white wine, sour, berries. Taste is sour and dry, faint hint of mango on the back end. Tasty, but I expected the fruit to have more presence. I was happy to try this but $16 for "a great palate cleanser" is a bit much. I would not buy this again.

500 ml bottle shared by drsordr. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have tart, lightly sour citrus, some tropical fruit, white wine, soft oak, light funk, overall I liked this, but think it would have been great with some carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (at Raleigh Times). Head is mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (barnyard), with notes of sour apple, kumquat, lemon, guava. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly to moderately astringent.
A fun sour even if it fails to truly excite. The fruit additions don’t push it into "fruit beer" territory thankfully, and honestly it wasn’t terribly obvious that fruit had been added...even straight lambic has apple-citrus notes naturally. Maybe only the guava-ish character showed through for me, but YMMV. Pretty decent.
