Bottle courtesy of Bigmmartin. One of my first sours and I think BigM was trying to take it easy on me. The beer is sour and tart but not overly so. Nice looking beer with a nice brownish amber color. Aroma show more sourness that the flavor does but is still fruity. The flavor is a balance of tartness and fruit flavors. Enjoyable, but lighter bodied than I would have liked or expected.

ppelsyrlig doft med inslag av balsamvinger, aceton, krsbr. Mrkt rdbrun frg och ett snabbt frsvinnande skum. Stsyrlig, fint avrundad smak men aning fr stor stma. Hr finns pplen och krsbr som vilar p en vins ekfatston. Halvfyllig kropp och en silkig textur. Kort eftersmak.

Color reminds me of grade B maple syrup - slightly ruby-colored. Off-white head with larger, coarse bubbles that slide off of the sides of the glass. Balsamic and something peppery on the nose with a fleeting woody character. As it warms, the archetypal grass and "funky" smell begins to develop but never really gains an unpleasant strength. Tastes lightly of balsamic. Tart but very refreshing. Flavor is not overpowering like some other Flemish sours I have had. A bit of unripe berry flavor and some kind of grape or red wine character. Sweet aftertaste that fades quickly. Mouthfeel is good - just enough carbonation to give it a bite and the beer does not "cling" to the tongue at all. Personally, I liked it best below the recommended temperature range. 35F-40F makes for a very crisp taste and muted sweetness while still giving you that up-front sour vinegar character. I would recommend this as a gateway for introducing people to this style of ale. Very nice!

slawek (253) - Krakw, POLAND - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle. Dark red color, small tan head, clear body. Aroma: Wine, grapes, bit of barnyard, some vingear, medium intense, very pleasant. Taste: Low sweetness with medium bitterness. Flavor of dry wine, grapes but it is not astringent at all. Quite sour. Very refreshing, with high carbonation, almost no aftertaste. Very impresive beer, i like it much!

Juggernaut84 (252) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2017 Optik: tiefes Rot und feiner Schaum, nichts zu beanstanden und sehr appetitlicher Anblick. Nase: reife Sure und trockene Frchte, wenn man schwenkt kommt eine stark tzende Klebstoffnote die in Apfelessig endet. Fr mich ein zu krasses Off-Flavor auch fr Sauer. Mund: samtig weiches Mundgefhl adstringierende Balsamico-Sure die zusammen mit der leichten Carbonisation schn prickelt. Der Abgang ist trocken und anhaltend. wre die Nase nicht so mies wrde ich es mgen.
