lambicboy12 (43) - salt lake, Utah, USA - MAY 18, 2014
1- sweet tarts candy, fruity esters, plum, some toast in the background 2- dark orange and hazy, quickly dissipating tan head 3- light toasty sweetness, heavy candy sourness that lingers, spicy phenols 4- medium body with a hot aftertaste 5- An ok beer but the sourness is just too candy-ish. The hotness in the aftertaste is distracting.

tricksta_p (1023) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2014
Aroma of sour apples, brett, malt, oak. Flavour is tart fruit followed by light malty sweetness. Finish is dry. Pretty decent Sour/Wild Ale.

Bottle from dranken Pauwels. Nose: Brettanomyces, ripe fruits, some smell I recognise from Alvinne Sour collection but I can’t describe yet. Taste: sweeter than expected but also nice sourness, some brett again, some stable, slight bitterness and too much solvents. The aroma of solvents is what put me off this beer.

C&C 375 mL bottle shared by jackl at the WWGT2D2U? tasting, 5/29/14. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of tart grapes, mild peppery funk, mild horseblanket, mild stone fruit, citrus, green peppers. Tart with notes of grapes, cherries, marzipan, stone fruits. Mild vinous, even milder funk. Medium bodied, low carbonation, mild lingering tartness.

2014.08 - 37.5cl - goudkleurig helder bier, witte schuimkraag - neus : zurig, grassig, appeltjes, en nog meer geurtjes die ik niet kan duiden - mond : aangenaam zurig, fruitig, appeltjes, iets branderigs - verrassend genoeg is dit bier maar 6° - aanrader !

Marheb (2001) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
Un nez très Cantillonesque allégé avec ses notes herbacés sauvages et ses petites céréales agonisantes. En bouche c’est très biscotti et délicat dans la sauvagerie, buvanilité monastique.

Helder goudkleurig, witte kraag die redelijk snel is verdwenen. Prima bier. Lekker stoffig en zacht zuur, met een beetje stro en fruit. Goede carbo.
