I had high hopes for this one, as it is one of the most highly regarded beers I can find in my area. I'm generally not a huge fan of New Belgian Brewing, but I wanted to try this one.
While I'm sure this beer is a fine representation of the Belgian Sour, I have to say I could barely drink it. In my purely subjective estimation, it was just far too sour for me to enjoy. My lips puckered with every drink. I couldn't even pick out any other flavors.
In a blind taste test, I would have said this was champagne, not beer--and I hate champagne.
Obviously, there must be something to this beer to garner all the great reviews it has from people more knowledgeable than myself. It just wasn't for me.
