750ml courtesy of tytoanderso, Thanks Ty! . Pours clear medium gold with 2 finger off-white head. Nose is sour malt, gueuzy citrus fruit, funk, earthy root cellar notes. Tastes tart, citric, with some funk matched by earthy notes. Stays tart, with a medium slightly prickly mouthfeel.

Defreni (3303) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2011
Flaske: Orange klar øl med et lille skumhoved. Dejlig let sur duft hvor der kan anes lidt hindbær og en smule fadlagring fra lambic. Smagen er igen let sur men på ingen måde overdreven. Der kan anes hindbær og en smule vanilie. Super øl.

lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2011
750 ml bottle.

Pours a hazy copper colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of sour fruits, apricot and some spices. Flavour of sour fruits especially grapefruit, dry hops, caramel and hay. Girardin is definitely present. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a dry, sour and hoppy finish. Nice and sour.

Suttree (6521) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Cloudy orange, thinnish, loose white head. Smells like basement, citrus, balsamic vinegar. Very dry. I get sour, of course, plus oak, some hops, some undefined hops. Very refreshing, very tasty. Plus the bottle with that snazzy wrapping paper, so it’s got that goin’ for it.

Orange with white head. Very sour with citrus. Rather simple with it’s sourness and fruitiness but effective. I like it..

Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2011
I got to try this back in Nashville thanks to Barrios!!! Hazy gold, thick frothy beige head. Aroma of lemon, funk, sweat, barnyard, oak, sour berries, mint, pineapple. Taste is sour, deliciously dry, lots of funk and tart berry, lemon. Light body, medium high carbonation. This was one of those beers that I don’t want to drink because I just want to keep smelling it.

Bottle @ home. Very excited to finally try this for the first time. Cloudy, bright orange appearance with a fluffy white head. Funky, tart lemon citrusy, musty aroma. Tart citrusy, lemon, mild acetic sour, funky, hay, straw, musty, effervescent flavor with a mild, tangy, tart finish. Tart lemon, lightly funky aftertaste. Great flavor with sourness that isn’t overly assertive but still a nice quality in the flavor. Very flavorful beer. Wish it was around more often.

Very sour aroma. Large, white head. Good lacing. Mostly diminishing longevity. Clear, orange body. Heavy bitter flavor. Light to medium palate.
