A: Small bright white head that quickly dissipated away with a fizzy sound. A small ring of bubbles is left on the edge of the micro snifter. Golden yellow color with a mild to moderate haze and a constant stream of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass.

S: Moderate level of sourness in the nose, no vinegar or nail polish, very crisp. Mild level of pleasant funky brett aroma - the barnyard, horse hair, rustic character. A light fruity impression comes through also.

T: Moderately tart sourness with slight funk. Very low bready malt taste hiding underneath. The sourness has a slight citrus fruit vibe with lemons and orange that has an impression of sweetness. No hop character or alcohol.

M: elevated levels of carbonation that give it a spritsy refreshing finish. Very dry finish too. The tartness hits in the cheeks and the roof of the mouth giving a slight tingling sensation.

O: A refreshing, tart lambic with a slight fruity character. No harshness just a pleasant beer with a nice funky undertone.

this is some crazy funky old school belgian weirdness, in a good way. have yet to be real impressed by their beer, but this one certainly takes the unique cake. ugly old pour on it, hazy brass color with all kinds of sediment, not just yeast chunks but black stringy pieces that m,ay be parts of a barrel, and a lot of white fuzzy stuff in the dregs. nice white head though, and visible carbonation. it smells funky, sour, and grain heavy. usually sour beers this color are so sour and yeasty that the malt is almost irrelevant. not in this beer, the grain dominates the smell and the taste, especially in the finish, which is cheerios or chez or some other sort of healthy simple low sugar cereal. there is a good mix of lactic acid sourness and farm yeasty funk, its a well balanced mix of all these strange flavors, and even a red apple hit for just a second before the long sour finish. its not too sour though, i can taste it all the way through, enjoying the malt and appreciating the yeast. it also has the odd property of being both refreshing and filling. small doses suffice for me with this one. bubbly with a mellowness from the wood. one of a kind beer, old world belgium style, it feels like a relic of past brewing traditions, and i like it for that. the best I've had from hot ten dormaal i think.

Poured into a Lindemans stange. Pours a light golden amber with two finger white head kept intact by constant carbonation. Looks great in the glass. Aroma of sour lemon, wheat and aromatic grain, light stone fruit. Flavor follows with sour citrus dominating, but supported by light wheat, pear and apple juice, hints of stone fruit, perhaps also a hint of oak. Light bodied with active carbonation. A well balanced wild sour beer that has some interesting flavors under the dominant citric tartness. I detect a faint hint of Hof Ten Dormaal's yeast and fruity pale ale body under the beer. Looks good and a well made example of Belgian sour.

A: The beer is light pale yellowish amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that rapidly disappeared.
S: Light aromas of sour fruits and oak are present in the nose.
T: The overall taste mostly follows the smell, but doesn't seem to be as sour.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit tart on the palate with a low amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't very complex, but this is explainable given that it is unblended. It has nice mellow flavors of oak and sour fruits.

Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Belgium, Miorge Mihoublon. Clear yellow-orange pour with a quickly fading one finger white head with decent lacing. The nose is pretty subdued with moderate funk along with hints of cereal grain, lemon, oak, and tart citrus. The taste is pretty fruity with hints of apple, pear, and tart lemon along with some subtle barnyard, oak, and a ton of grainy malt on the finish. The mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation, somewhat subdued sourness, and a sweet, tart finish. Overall, this reminds me a lot of most of Hof Ten Dormaal's beers, just a slightly sour version of them. The balance definitely leans to the sweet side, and the grainy notes are too dominant.
