Poured from a 765mL bottle into a Koningshoeven chalice. Vintage 2013. Bottled on 18 June 2013.

A: Lots of little bubbles. Brief head fades almost immediately. Russet-clear with a pink tinge.

S: Fresh-pressed raspberries and tart fruit. Lightly funky. Very, very nice.

T/M: Oh wow. Very tart! Almost too much so. The barnyard tang from the Brett is present, but can't outshine the massive amount of fruit, providing a lot of residual sugars and unmistakable merriness.

O: Great beer, great book, great night. Highly recommended, but perhaps overpriced.

A: Pours a beautiful reddish orange. Nicely carbonated, almost no head or lacing.

S: Has an acidic sour aroma, some hay and earthy tones.

T: This is how I like my sours, this one gives you a bit of a pucker, but it is not so sour that it hurts. Entirely drinkable. Of course the acetic sour flavor stands out, but there is much more to this brew than just that. There are apple, pear, and berry flavors. There is even a touch of sweetness mixed in. A taste of malt.

M: Clean, dry, refreshing, pleasantly carbonated.

O: A very nice example of the style. Some sours are sippers, this one is a drinker.
