A very nice beer with a refreshing and interesting bitterness - chinotti like

aroma: quite dry, barnyard funk and Belgian citrus

taste: dry with a tartness/sourness that is enjoyable and refreshing to drink. Has barnyard funk, chinotti, citrus like bitterness and apple skin with funky lemon and some Belgian spice. Thirst quenching.

Not that easy to find in Australia, especially in regional areas, so a rare treat.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12.7oz to a snifter, bottled 12/5/12

Pours a very cloudy pale amber gold with two fingers of foam. Heavy carbonation stemming from the center and sides, very strong retention and lacing. Kinda of hard to drink because the foam won't die down. Edit- it looks really good now that it finally has

Smells of tart cherries, oak, vinegar, sour apple, white wine, leather, strong Belgian funk and just a little bit of alcohol

Taste is initial upfront tart cherry, followed bland sour baking apple. Oak and wine notes are present on the after taste. The start and finish are good, but that middle part breaks it for me, almost like tasting the inside of a pill

Feel is medium sour with high bitterness. Sort of fizzy

Overall either this bottle is bad or these things taste like shit fresh. I'll try and get another to lie down for a few years to find out, but this experience wasn't worth anything near the $13 I paid for it

Reviewed from notes. Bottled on Jan. 5, 2012. Poured into a Tripel Karmeliet glass. The body was brassy gold and the head was white, leaving no lacing. The beer was pretty clear.

The smell was earthy and sweet with hints of pear. Bell pepper faintly and lots of Pixie Stix candy. Bright pleasant aroma.

The taste was very tart! Lemons and limes. Dry but not chalky. Light peppercorn flavor. Very interesting and delicious.

The mouthfeel was medium to light bodied with a fine carbonation. This one exceeded my expectations!
