Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2011
This little 25cl bottle pours clear copper with white head. The aroma is on the sweet side with inviting notes of yeasty tartness backed by slightly funky to stale cherries and slightly moldy, sticky and oozing plums and musty basement. The taste begins with a sweet/tart like cherry and sweet green apple candy note. Behind those notes are moderate layers of sour lemon / lime, tart yeastiness and then a big more sweet sugar like notes attempting to even this out. It ends on the dry side as the moderate tartness and sourness leave the palate fairly dry into the after taste with lingering notes of lemon, ripe sweet green apple and cherry.

Bottle 25cl. Pours a clear bronze colour with almost no head. Nice faro, bit too sweet for my taste.

KapitiCritique (379) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - NOV 24, 2011
AROMA: not very big, hints of fruit and spice; APPEARANCE: pours clear brown with decent head and effervescent; TASTE: sour and sweet and strong bitterness; PALATE: smooth, medium body, slightly spiked tongue, longish bitter-sweet finish; OVERALL: it is a pleasant enough beer, not that distinctive.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2015 Tasted from bottle into tulip glass. Poured a clear, reddish-amber color with strong carbonation but slight head and some lace. Aromas of bread, toast, toffee, caramelized brown sugar, almost no hops. Nice malty-sweet flavor, fruity with slightly sour champagne bite. Light body, spritzy mouthfeel, long-lasting complex aftertaste. Delicious.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Draft, Beveridge Place Pub. Cloudy brownish amber, small white head. Smells like a sweet gueuze, a bit of funk, lemon, sweet and sour apple. More sugary sweet at the start than it smells, moving to sweet apple and berry flavors, tart lemon, some lambic funky earthiness in there. Interesting and surprisingly drinkable, but I think I prefer other styles of lambic more.

blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 12, 2011
bottle poured a red brown color with a ring of tan head on the glass. aroma has light acidity, candy sugar, sweet fruit, and some basement funk. mouth feel is light but has some texture and the carbonation somewhat low. flavor has an acidic base but the sugar just cuts right through it. mild damp funk and some fruits mix in with it finishing drying but the sugar hangs on. has some soda qualities and although interesting is a bit on the sweet side for my liking.

Gription79 (2890) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Sampled at the Bayou’s Wild and Sour ale tasting. Vinegar was the most dominating trait of this beer. There was a spicy and sugary aroma. Not a fan of this beer.
