750mL bottle poured into a snifter. Review #1400!
(A)- Pours a hazy golden creamed apricot-like orange color. Some good white froth that dissipated quickly.
(S)- A great lemon rind sweetness meets a wealth of oaky acidic sourness. Ever so slighty lacticness at the end.
(T)- A very nice acidity overall to this. Some lemon and orange citrus meets a dry yet sour oaky finish. Not overly dirty or earthy, but definitely on the cleaner-side.
(M)- A good crisp carbonation level combined with an awesome balance of sour fruit and dry oak. Again, like the taste, is not overly funky or dirty, but quite clean in its sourness.
(O)- I really dig this. Possibly one of my most favorite sours from the Bruery to date. A great sourness to it combined with a well balanced and rounded oakiness makes this a winner for me. Definitely makes me wish I grabbed more than one bottle.

A: This poured a nearly clear pale gold with a little white head.
S: It smelled like sour white grapes and funky oak, with some unripe apricot and tart apple cider vinegar.
T: It tasted like very sour oak and tart apple cider vinegar, with some unripe apricot and citrus zest. It had a bold and lasting sour aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a great sour ale. Tough to beat the traditional Belgians of the style, but this was a good attempt. Delicate but bold scent and taste. The body could have been a bit livelier. The finish was clean but strong, so it must be sipped. Yum.
