37,5cl paper wrapped and corked bottle dated 2004, with a huge thanks to ygtbsm94 for the chance to try this! Pours a clear golden with a partial covering of large bubbles that quickly settle to a thin outer ring. Aroma is fresh grape skins, oak, apple peel, and green raisin. Flavor is nicely sour and acidic, but not overly so, with a nice balance of grape skin, wood and fruit peels. Less complex and lighter than expected, and almost winey at times. Enjoyable, but wouldn’t mind a bit more intensity. Thanks again Brad!

Golden with no head. Sour and funky aroma - like wood, vinegar and wet soil. The flavour is acid and sour too. dominated by vinegar, white wine and bad apple juice. I don’t get this one and find it way beneath the Grand Cru.

Captain Crunch anyone? Pours a clear darkish golden with little head. Smells like some fruit mixed with Captain Crunch. Sweet, acidic, light sharp sour. Pretty good, Mikey likes it.

My kind of beer, shared with Armando629. Pours with an amber, gold color with white head that doesn’t last. Sour, tart, tannin taste with clove, cinnamon, and grapes in the aroma. Very complex beer, truly enjoyed it.

375ml bottle. Rating #600. Pours a completely flat reddish brown. Nose is apple, raspberry, cherry, acetic acid, and grape. Nice full body on this sour, which is somewhat rare in a sour ale. Vinegary but so well integrated with huge notes of berry and cherry. I expected this was flat but it appears to have some decent natural carbonation. Its soft but definitely not flat like unblended lambics often are. A gorgeous beer and a classy example of the style.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2010 Bottle shared with andreasen11 and one shared by plovmand, thanks body! It pours cloudy yellow-amber with no head. The aroma has lots of wood and rip fruit in it, along with vinegar and a pleasant vinous touch. Flavour is fresh made apple juice, wood, balanced apple vinegar with a powerful backbone that adds some vinous notes.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2014 Wow this is what you call a perfect good beer. No head at all very clear and in a clear bottle with nothing on it. The bottle is packed into paper with every information on it. Sour but not too sour. And be carefull it is 10% alcohol. A perfect beer Could taste it at the beerbrothers festival once more. It was the best beer of the festival and still had the perfect taste
