hazy golden no head no lacing... tart lemon sour flavor with a touch of an astringent vinegar note... quite tart and refreshing, puckering... light carbonation, huge flavor... aroma is a touch cheesy

That is seriously tart. The sourness is in every sip of this beer, with an even more intense finsih. This might be the most intense sour beer Ive had from start to finish, yet it keeps me sipping.

On tap at Fardowners. Aromas of tart apple, under ripened pineapple, light lemon. Clear as cider, practically heasless. Very tart, very acidic. Light bodied, clean, very crisp, leaves the mouth watering.

jgb9348 (5988) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2017
Ridiculously dark, brown coloured body with a glow of deep amber, some orange haze at the bottom, and absolutely no head at all. Aroma of sour apples, sour grapes, yeast, funk, grass and a bit of pure sour candy - nice. Light-bodied; Mouth-puckering sour lemon, apple and citrus flavours at first with a deep yeast and floral finish with a nice kick of apples and caster sugar near the end. Aftertaste is all about the sourness with not much malt, hardly any body, not much sweetness and absolutely no hops, the only thing that really sticks out is the yeast element and a ton of sour flavours - which is perfectly alright! Overall, a great beer with a lot of qualities that make the style so nice, with some that are unique (the look) make this a very nice beer to sample and oh so easy to drink. I sampled this sixteen ounce pour on draught at Whole Foods in Pentagon City (Arlington), Virginia on 19-January-2017 for US$4,00 sampled at the end of my driveway!

Palme (4406) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2016
On tap @ Rattle N Hum as "Aged Tartare". This is a cloudy looking almost straw golden colored one with a small quickly fading white little head. Smells really good and inviting. Sourness from slammed green and yellow berries. Theres traces of wood, some sweetness also here. Raspberries? Smells really nice this. Oh, this is lemonic and drinkable as heck! Its mild oily in the mouth and its below average on the carbonation. Superbly refreshing and really lightdrinkable! Sour gooseberries and white currants lingering in the tail. Nice! 21.06.2015

Tap at gravity. Pale golden with one finger head. Strong vinegar, very tart and acidic. Lemony. Not often I say this but this is too sour.

From tap. Poured a clear gold with no head. Nose is very sour with lots of lemon and hints of tangerine. Taste is also sour: lemon, granny smith apple, and vinegar. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Very nice, very sour.

MarcoDL (4504) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2016
Draft at Slaters. Aroma of tart, citrus and vinegar. Taste is incredibly sour, like vinegar, with veggies, dry tart and some berries. Hard stuff to like, its too extreme.
