Sour, dry, sweet, and fizzy-- reminiscent of a champagne and sour. Nice flavor combination of barrel, green grape, agave, grapefruit zest, and honey. Very nice!
A friend bought a bottle of this and offered me a taster. Frankly, this style, or blend of styles, is lost on me, possibly due to my lamentably poor sense of smell, but moreso by my preference for the mainstream styles, from lager to stout. So, naturally, I’m rating this on my lack of appreciation for the style rather than on its place within that style. Disregard! GRM (4019) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2016

A 330ml bottle with a nice unique bottle shape and a best before date of April 2017, poured into a Cantillon ballon glass. It poured a nice clear golden colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly but leaves nice lacing. Aromas are tart, lemon peel and oak with a hint of apple and funkiness. Tastes tart and funky with fruity lemon and apple. Not overly sour, and in fact I got a lightly sweet apple cider finish. Dry, light bodied with high spritzy carbonation. Overall this was nice and refreshing. I am lucky to have one more bottle, which is a good thing considering Birra del Borgo is now under AB InBev and seeing the lengths that Cantillon have gone to, it appear that, even if this beer is produced again, that it will NOT be with lambic from Cantillon. Therefore if you can still find this, it’s definitely worth a try, even possibly a last try! oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2016
It was a gusher... Pours a hazy gold color. Aromas of tart fruit, bread, citrus, and yeasty. Flavor is malty/citrus. Leaves a yeasty orange aftertaste.

Hazy blond body. Off-white head. Hoppy, lightly sour head. Moderately sour, lightly bitter beer. Nicely balanced. Fashawn (597) - ITALY - APR 9, 2016
Good sour saison. Light aroma of basement, oak, some sweet fruits, barnyard, leaves. golden, hazy, frothy white head. First Sips shows the light sour soul of this beer. Some litchi, white grapes, suggestion of white wine. Also sweet fruits like peach, pear. Good bitterness at the end with Pit peach. Very good one Hair6a11 (1481) - Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle : Well - the presentation is beautiful as far as beer bottles go. This one pours a hazy apricot, with a frothy pillow top into this glass - it retains fairly well - with heavy lace. This one is mineral water, heavy grasses, lemon, and baked bread. It begins crisp and lively - and quickly moves to soapy zest of lemon, with feint stone fruit presence, wrapping up with bready malts, and a touch of funk on a dry finish line. It’s not perfect by any means - but it’s a fun attempt. Lunkie (1926) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2015
Sour herbal berry aroma. Murky yellow colour great head and lacing. Straw herbal glory flavour. Fizzy palate.
