davidezdonz (571) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - OCT 18, 2017
A 750ml bottle with a best before date of 28th May 2020. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass. It was a nice clear copper orange colour with a just over one finger light beige head that dissipated fairly quickly and left some spotty lacing. Aromas were tart, oak, white wine, apple, herbal and funky. Tastes tart, but only mildly sour, red apple, lime, cork, oak, funk and maybe hay with only a hint of a herbal element and vinegar. Acidic, medium to light bodied with good moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice and balanced blend of a sour ale and Lambic. Much better than the Kriek version in my opinion.

From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours golden with somehow irregular white foam, limited. Aroma is green apple, white pulp fruits, strawberries. Body is dense with a tickling carbonation. Taste is intensely sour. Finish is long and sour.

Farmhouse-brettish aroma but relatively mild. Sour and mildewy taste with a lot of wodden notes in the bitterness. Great beer.

tapefuzz (760) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 23, 2017
Draught. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is tangerine, hay, funk, pear, and wood. Taste is tart; tangerine, nectarine, some funk, pear, hay, pepper, some hoppiness, and very light earth. Medium body. Moderate, tight carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. The aroma is the best part of the beer.

djcampbell (332) - Moravany, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 17, 2017
Vynikající a velice zajímavá zkušenost. Příjemné aroma s tóny citronu, jablka, silnější říz, jemná, déle držící pěna a lahodná chuť.

Jado (804) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Clear caramel-amber body with a thin but lasting white head. Funk, stone fruit, lemon and a vinegary sourness in the nose. Taste is brightly sour up front, but lots of peach and plum follow it up. Bit of pepper in there too. Clean finish with a spicy aftertaste. A pretty awesome sour beer.

StoutPriestess (11) - Prescott, Arizona, USA - AUG 25, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2017 What a lovely beer. Big funk in the nose, barnyardy and aromatic. Lively, light body opens flavors of blue cheese, sourdough yeast, apple skin, and hay. Finishes dry.

3 finger eggshell head, amber body. Nose: Barnyard, hay, vinegar, funk-notes, aged cheese, yeast and green apples. Taste: Aged cheese-notes, yeast, vinegar, funk-notes, green apples, white bread, hay, grassy notes and hint of cider and champagne. Semi-long dry ending with low bitterness.

Interesting stuff - red fruits, funk and light acetic notes. Complex red fruit and vinous notes with some residual sweetness and tart finish.
