375 ml. bottle; 2004 vintage bottled in 2006. Earthy sour aroma. Hazy orange apricot color with a white head that really left rapidly. Thin to medium bodied with very mild carbonation. The flavor is lambic sour. A bit like earthy green apple. Pineapple? The finish is dry and sour and bitter. Changes from sip to sip. The finish is lactic, and fruity. Something like sucking on a lime peel. Problem: It is what it is, and coming up with what it is not to describe it doesn’t work. Good stuff. Very good stuff.

Bottle. Vintage 2005. Clear, sparkling, deep golden color with a pretty white head that disappears rather fast. Acidic and earthy aroma, some barnyard notes, flowers and lemon. A rather dry sour flavor with citrus and some subdued malt sweetness. Finishes with a slightly weird mix of sourness and bitterness. Medium-bodied. Very good stuff. 8/4/7/4/15=3.8
Bottle at the Rake enjoyed with big wallopper MagicDave6. It pours amber with moderate carbonation and a very thin yellow-white head. The nose is sour, hay, floral, grass and wood. The taste is lemon-sherbet, acidic Granny Smith apple, floral, grass, hay, surprising bitterness and wood with a satisfyingly long tart-bitter finish. There is a great balance between sweet, sour and bitter. Tmoney99 (14377) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Bottle cap & corked from Dilly Deli. Poured hazy yellow color with an minimal frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate sour yeasty raw wet woody aroma. Light to medium body. Medium sour citrus flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderated duration. This is a standout for style beer. djd07 (14369) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2014
