4.3/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a cloudy golden, with a medium head of fine white bubbles. Thin lace.

Nose is tangy and sour, with indications of fruit, green apple, and a lactic, yeasty character. Nice.

Taste is nicely soured, with green apple tones most prominent. I get no trace of the oak barrels that this was aged in. Instead, it's a wild and tangy tart fruit vibe with a slight warming finish. A delicious treat.

4.4/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a yellow golden with a slight white head that leaves some lacing.

Smell is of tart, sour white grapes, apricot, pineapple, pear, and peach. Not much malt in the nose, its mostly a pleasant acidic note.

Taste is much of the same with a nice lingering vinegar note, although lighter than some other sours. Lots of unripe fruit notes, reminds me of tasting fruit from my orchard prematurely. Sour grapes, a little honey on the backend, Pretty nice if you ask me.

Feel is on par with many great beers, I can't see how it can be improved really. Light on the tongue, and medium carb.

Overall this is much better than the Oude Bruin. I would say get this over the aformentioned.
Very nice sour with lots of puckering notes.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

25oz bomber to a snifter

Pours a pale gold with two fingers of white foam. Moderate carbonation lacing from the sides, not bad retention or lacing

Smells...sour. Strong tart white grapes and apple, some lemon, heavy oak, a strong blast of Belgian funk, some pale malt, and a touch of alcohol

Taste follows the nose pretty well. Strong upfront sour fruits- apple, grape, lemon, and a bit of cherry. Yeast and malts follow, a blast of funk along with a pale bready malt. Finishes with hints of oak and a touch of alcohol

Feel is face twisting sour, definitely 'high' on the scale. Dry finish, alcohol hidden well, not very bitter. Easy to sip

Overall my go to sour. Always delivers and always available at a decent price. A little skunkiness with this bottle I haven't had on the others. Been sitting on the shelf a little too long
