750ml bottle pours out a hazy straw topped with a small head. Nose has a lot going on white wine grapes barrel notes some stone fruit funky barnyard lemon zest and a spice. Taste is more of the complex notes wine grapes tanic lemon citrus zing green apple and funk. ctipping (2179) - Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2016
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Light golden yellow. Very hazy. Nice white head.
Smell has lots of white wine, funk, and oak. Mild acidity. Grainy malt aroma with some lemon and citrus.
White wine flavors prominent again in the taste. Much more sour than the nose implied. Lemon, lactic sourness. The sweetness from pale malt builds and covers the sourness. Herbal flavors linger in the finish.
Medium carbonation. Sweet and sour in the same sip. Medium heavy body.
I had to have this (and all Ale Apothecary beers) a few times to really appreciate it. They are all very complex beers that don’t fit into standard molds. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2016

first time trying something by these guys and the hype is real. really great beer, BrewBrain (185) - Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle. Corkscrew required. Hazy yellow pour, bubbly effervescent head. Highly carbonated. Aroma is apple cider, yeasty, but when it warms up there is a slightly objectionable yeasty smell. To me this is similar to other sour ales. There is a nice fruit and woody character, some hop sense, quite drinkable with no alcohol burn despite the ABV but the tartness outweighs most else. First time mentioning the price of the bottle in a review but I am compelled to say it is overvalued.

Bottle, pours hazy golden with smaller top. Smell is nail polish remover and vinegar. Taste is lemon, lime, and strong oak with a slightly acidic bight. Much preferred to the smell but still not a fan. hackobock (4063) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2015
