UPDATED: DEC 14, 2012 Bottle at BCTC 2010. Pours light gold, hazy, with a medium off-white head. Fairly malty aroma with good sour notes and light fruits. Flavor begins with some fruity sweetness then goes quite sour with brett and acid. Medium bodied with fine carbonation and a tart character. Finishes sour and lip-puckering. Very good beer.

Vorwiegend säuerlicher, in zweiter Linie auch angenehm fruchtiger Antrunk mit gutem Apfel-Birnengemisch. Aromatisch, die Säuerlichkeit ist hier Aromenträger und steht nur bedingt im Vordergrund. Ebenfalls aromatisch hopfig, was sich mit der Säure hervorragend verträgt. /12/12/13//12

Cloudy blond color; small head. Lactic acidity, citrusy aroma, some plastic too; a bit creamy, very close to some Lambic. Good mouthfeel, strong carbonation but pleasant effect, nice fruity touch, the fruit adjunct carries some sugars too; citrusy sourness, but milder and more drinkable than other Sour beers. Balanced, well brewed, elegant. Excellent.
750mL bottle, batch 2, sent from BrewtopiaofPJ (thanks a lot, Mark), pours a musty looking golden orange with a tiny head. Aroma of oak barrels, grape must, wild bretty funk and some vinous notes. Flavour is super dry, with loads of dry grape must, oak barrels, more grape must, some wild yeast notes, and considerable funk. Very complex and super dry. Not very similar to anything else I’ve had. Very light-to-flat in the mouthfeel. Excellent. harrisoni (19535) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2008
Bottle at the Angry Fist of Santa tasting at Chris_o’s. Hazy pale gold, very lemony tart aroma. Bleachy lemon. A bit like a lemony saison. It’s quite a good balanced sour beer. Good palate and good lemon finish.

Cloudy, blonde. Wow...gooseberries...impressive sour fruitiness. Killer citrus - grapefruit & dalandan. Way sour, kind of grapefruit juice-like, and also quite spicy. Big citrus, crazy subtle nuances that don’t quite get at what they’re getting at. Very good brew - unique, complex and challenging. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2012

Batch 4 thanks to jcwattsrugger. Pours cloudy yellow orange with lots of carbonation. Nose is tart fruit, champagne yeast and oak. Taste is pleasantly tart, not overwhelming with oak, yeast and light spice. Benzai (16918) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2014
Sampled @ RBBSG III. Hazy pale yellow color, virtually no head. Smell and taste sourness, sour fruits, a bit sharp. Medium body, soft carbonation. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 12, 2010
A: The pour is a cloudy straw color with a large white head that dies down to a thin white layer relatively quickly.
S: A wonderful bright acidity to the nose with notes of lemon, green apple, and the muscat grapes used in this beer. Quite a vinous quality to the beer which I really enjoy.
T: A moderate funky quality to the beer that is of the wet oak and must. The sourness is primarily lactic without any real acetic notes. The lemon and green apple character accentuates the white muscat grapes wonderfully, which provide a touch of sweetness.
M: The body is on the light end of medium with a lively carbonation and a pleasantly dry finish.
D: One of my all time favorite sour beers and one that I wish I could drink all the time. Just a great beer that I look forward to at every release.
