Advertised as a cross between a sour ale and a witbier. Unfortunately, it fails on both counts.

Body is the look and color of pulpy lemonade. Bit of tartness and some spices but neither rise up to the challenge. The result is an ordinary and muted ale from a brewery that we can rightly expect much more. Disappointing.

On-tap at Volo during Zwanze.

Cloudy gold with a big white head. Decent retention.

Smell is sour, seems to be lacto that was used. Smells funky in a bit of an 'off' way. A bit cheesy. Wheat.

Taste contains wheat and is fairly sour. Dry. Coriander sticks out among the funky sour flavours. Like the nose, it seems a bit off. Something about the wheat and wild yeast doesn't blend well for me. Finish is very coriander heavy.

Medium bodied, strongly carbonated. Powdery, dry.

Overall, not very good. Some good things going on, but the off flavour really detracts.

Can a witbier be sour? Le Trou du Diable thinks so. On-tap at Beachwood Brewing, on to the beer:

Lightning round: It's a witbier with peaches. The peaches do add a pleasant note to the beer, both in the aroma and the taste, though the peach taste is sweeter than it is sour. If anything, the witbier base has been soured some and used as a canvas for the sweet fruity peaches to cling onto. For a "lighter" sour ale, La Oude Blanche should be a good choice.
