Ausgewogen suerlicher Antrunk, noch frh wird das Bier in Teilen penetrant. Die Grundsure ist allerdings angenehm, die vorhandene Fruchtigkeit reicht nur bis in den Mittelteil und wird dann weitestgehend bersehen. Auch die vorhandene Se reicht nur bis dorthin, danach dominiert die Sure eindeutig. Essignoten spielen im Abgang mit und halten sich im Nachgeschmack zumindest. Nettes Bier, das aber zumindest im hinteren Teil etwas unwirsch wirkt. Vielen Dank an den Doppelbock! 11/12/10/9/13/12

Bottle. Burnt orange our with a big white head. All kinds of carbonation. Aromas of white fruits. Effervescent with apricot, white grape, and almost champaign like flavors. Not quite as good as the Kriek or Vlad, but still very nice...

2009 vintage. 750 ml bottle purchased a year ago at Holiday Wine Cellar ($18.99). Pours an interesting color of burnt orange with some red. The foam started overflowing the bottle after I opened it, but when poured the two fingers of beige head quickly dissipates to nothing. Aroma is full of tart apricots; also sweet flowers (honeysuckle), perfume, and quite a bit of funk. Flavor again of big tart apricots, acidic funk, and Pinkberry-type tart yogurt. Sour but with some hints of sweetness that balance it well, making it quiet drinkable. Nicely done fruity American sour, though it is quite expensive. (212, 553)

750ml bottle I picked up on my trip to NY last summer. Pours hazy golden orange with a white head. Aromas of apricots, good amount of tartness, and some malts. Flavor is fruity and pretty tart with a ton of apricot and a little sweetness. Nice mouthfeel and carbonation. Very nice sour.

750ml bottle from Julios. 2009 bottling.
Appearance : Clear amber with a medium head.
Aroma : Great sourness and tartness with nice dry apricots. Light barnyard. Light tropical fruits. Awesome nose.
Taste : Awesome sourness with nice apricots. Light tropical fruits. Finish has a great tartness with great fruity apricots.
Overall : Wow this is very good. Had this twice in 2 weeks and I was amazed both times. For my taste, this is much better then their kriek or the sang royal. The Vine eas better though. The fruits were very nice with a great tartness. Not too sour. Enjoyable light barnyard profile, could be funkier of course. Great summer drink.

The beer pours a honey gold, apricot?, with nice carbonation. Light white, rises about three fingers and is gone right away. The aroma is very strong tons of a sweet apricot. Its almost like honey, not a lot of tart here at all. The epitome of a fruit beer. The taste is a little let down to me. I was expecting something that was a really nice sweet, instead its a weird carbonated juice. There is some light apricot and a hint of a sour finish, but otherwise disappointing. A very light feel, easy to drink but kinda blah that wouldnt make me want to drink much.

Reviewed from notes. Ive had quite a few bottles of this now and its certainly one of my favorite American fruited sours. Pours a nice pale apricot color with a bit of a white head and some lacing. The nose is really quite tart with lactic sourness and a good dose of apricot and peach flavors. Some light green apple as well. The taste brings in a bit of oak and a really nice sour to fruit ratio. The mouthfeel and drinkability are both out of this world, as the fruit and sourness levels combine quite well. This is just short of the level where the sourness begins to affect drinkability. My favorite of their sours to date. Im very, very glad they ship this out to Philly.

Bottle pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma shows notes of tart apricot, peach, oak, and a touch of funk. Flavor shows the same with additional earthy notes as well as lemon and some light vinegar. Fruity with moderate acidity.
