Pours light amber with a nice white head. Nose of hops and fruit. Tart fruity taste with a hint of spices. 9%ABV but very easy to drink. southamptonsam (116) - New York, USA - APR 19, 2009
Quite unique. Light amber with a big lasting white head. I don’t usually like sour beers but this has a very pleasant grapefruity tartness. Nice summer drink. The alcohol is more than hidden, I think it is overestimated. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown body with a white creamy head. Lots of fruity esters with apple being the dominant note. Some light spices with a hint of grass and grapes. Dry with little notice to the high abv. Sweet chewy slightly tart apple flavor. A great brew! hopdog (12549) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2009
11.2oz bottle. This one poured all off whtie head (and I mean all head). Settled into a medium and hazy amber color. Aromas of floral hops, a little fruity, and yeasty. Tastes of fruitinss, grapes, lighter yeast, and cherries. Lighter tart finish with the alcohol content well hidden. fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of floral hops, apple skins, orange peel, orange, toasted malt, sort of like Belgian ale meets ESB. Flavor somewhat woody with nuts to go along with the toast, flowers, and fruit. Dryish finish. Quite tasty.

Bottle. Pours a dirty orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet apple pie and dark fruits, with a touch of light hops. Flavor is quite fruity with apple and fig and sweet malt. Very flavorful. Lately I have found most BSAs to be rather boring, but not this one! Well done!
7/4/8/4/15 (3.8/5) sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2009 (Bottled) Very hazy amber with a medium, tight and creamy head (well, after 3/4 of the beer had gushed out into the table and floor). Tart, caramely-fruity and herby-spicy, quite Orval-like aroma. Very fruity, plesantly tart flavor with some sweetness from the caramel malt, and a peppery-spicy, bitter-hoppy finish. Alcohol is fully hidden. Medium-bodied with slightly foamy carbonation. Need to resample this beautiful beer with a less "active" bottle. Update: tried another one, with the same results :( Yves (3042) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2009 Amberish coloured beer with small white head. Sour herby aroma. Full slightly sparkling palate. Finish is sour ending dry. thewolf (12597) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2009

Pours hazy, darkish golden with a nice, staying, frothy, white head. Aroma has caramel, light viniousness, some roasted notes and plums. A fresh dose of hops as well. Super, quite dry mouthfeel. Flavour is dry, lightly tart, good oranges, wood and roasted malts. Quite drinkable.
Had this at Zythos Beer Festival, March 7th and 8th 09 Pours a murky light amber colour. The aroma is a little sour and citric. Taste is also a touch sour and nothing like the description. Its fruity, there is bitterness but its quite citric throughout. Not sure whether it was intended to be like this. A6 A3 F6 P3 OV12 3.0
