Bottle shared at the 5,000 tasting party. Poured a cloudy amber, slight hint of rose, along with a foamy white head. Aroma was great with notes sour, funk, fruityness, cherry-lemon-lime-strawberry. Flavor is super funky and sour with notes of lemon, vinegar and fruit. Palate is acidic with notes of stingy lively bubbly carbonation and an overall lingering aftertaste. Wow!!, just WOW!! j12601 (12668) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2011

Lots of acid, sweet strawberries. Long tingly acids. Loads of berries and long tart and sweet acid. So good. blipp (9373) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Bottle shared at Paul and Ryan’s 5000th rate tasting. Pours hazy brown with an off white head. Tart and fruity aroma, with fresh strawberries and red berries. The flavor has a nice balance of sweet and tart notes, with woody notes, rhubarb, and cherries. Delicious. jtclockwork (16690) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2011

Bottle shared by someone at Paul and Ryan’s 5000th celebration, thanks! Poured a cloudy grapefruit orange with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of tart tropical fruits with a good amount of funk and acid. Flavor began tart with tropical and red fruits and grew in acid becoming slightly acetone. There was a nice bit of funk throughout.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2011 Dry, lots of sour cherry, very pitty. Tons of funk in the aroma, lots of almond nuttiness. Update 12/2011, more of a typical lost abbey sour, lots of acetic acid just destroys everything. lionel09 (8) - BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2011 does not count

big bottle. shared by me at the January Houston RB Tasting. We had this one sitting on the bar and it turned out to be a super gusher. Lost a third of the bottle. :-( Pours reddish-brown with no head. Nose is of sour fruit. taste is of super sour fruit. Mouthfeel is thin and sour, sour, sour. bleeng (1682) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2011
Bottle shared by maltomeal at the January 2011 Houston RB tasting. Cork and bottle blew when opened-lost about 1/3 of the beer. Off gold fuzzy color. Nose is tart and a bit skunky sweet. Taste is out of this world complex-starts off sweet with a coughing tartness moving in. Mellow at first then esophagus stinging tartness/citric acid like orange juice. Weird as it fades just a bit on the end. Just a fascinating beer. SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle shared by Rusty. Thanks! Hazy orange/red color with a ring of head. Aroma of light fruit, lemon, cranberry, vinegar. Light sweet and seriously sour flavor. Excellent stuff!
