Amber with no head. Sour, floral aroma. Hits you with tang bomb with blueberry notes. Reminiscent of Rodenbach Grand Cru. A lovely beer. Rated by BrewTom

HogTownHarry (7012) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2017
September 19, 2015 - at Beaverton for the Rainbow event - draught. Hazy yellow with a small white head. Smells like candy and flowers - ehh. Taste is pretty good - kettle-type lemon sour with some light floral hopping (7+). Solid body and acidity, nice and lively, acidic linger - would have this again.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with minimum white head. Aroma: sour, flourish, pale berries, cow shit, white vine vinegar. Taste: medium plus sour, acidity, fresh fruits and flowers, weak balancing pear sweetness. Medium body. Sour finish.

Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle 375ml. Pours golden with low white head. Aroma is of fruits, sourness, rags. Taste is of fruits, strong acid. Palate: Light body, high carbonation. Overall: Way too acid.

mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2016 Pours a clear golden with a thin white head that still leaves pretty nice lacing. Nose is of vinegar and sharp acids with some wood. Taste is just bracingly sour and acidic. All I can taste is the acid. Way too sour and hard to drink (and I usually love sour). Body is light, carbonation moderate. Not pleasing at all just like some of the De Garde Bus and unidimensional. Why drink that?

bottle shared by tom10101, thanks dude! pours unclear bright gold with a small white cap offering minimal retention and lacing. purple flowers, sour under-ripened exotic citrus, acetone and acetic; puckering high acidity, tannins. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; puckering citric finish. crazy american sour without subtleties. nope.

Bottle (375 ml), shared. Clear golden with a small white head leaving little to no lacing. Aroma is lemony and funky with mild oak spiciness, mild floral notes and light herbal notes. Taste is puckering to the point of being very hard to drink, lemony forward, herbal and floral and salty notes. Medium body. Medium-high carbonation. Citric and puckering finish. Way too sour to be enjoyable. Surprising because both Firestone Walker and Wild Beer can make some nicely drinkable and well balanced sour. This is harshly puckering.

Leighton (21489) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2016
Bottle at home in London. Pours totally clear gold, highly effervescent, with a frothy white head that fizzes out quickly. Lots of lemon notes in the aroma, hints of metal, wheat, citrus peel. Light sweet flavour with aggressive acidity, a touch more metal, impressions of grape, lemon juice, a little salty sweat. Light bodied with quick and massaging carbonation. Dry on the finish, lip-puckeringly sour, quenching, with more lemon character, salty bite, a little metallic zip, tongue-ripping acidity. Interesting stuff. Definitely a tart little beast. But there’s not a lot of depth to it. Overall, it’s pretty good.

jjsint (3203) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2016 Bottle as a gift. Clear and orange/golden with a hint of amber. Almost no head and a trace of visible carbonation. Grapefruit and lemon, with compost and candy sugar in the aroma. Taste is tart, tart, tart. There’s a moment of sweetness right near the end but it never takes hold. Long luxurious tart finish with lemon juice and overripe apple skins in the aftertaste. Wow.

3.8
mR_fr0g (12574) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2016
Bottle split at ABC Beer The Hague, 24/09/2015. Thanks. A hazed yellow / straw coloured pour. Aroma is zesty lemon funk, zippy tart lemon citrus, fresh and juicy. Hint of parma violet on the nose as well. Flavour is composed of crisp lemon surbert, zippy lemon, pale grains. Palate is crisp, refreshingly tart, spritzy carboantion.
