A: Pours pale and slightly cloudy straw color.
The head is small, whispy and dissipates quickly

S: Light vinegar (like apple vinegar), orchard fruits, and an underlying sweetness. Pretty complex, and I am not familiar with the style enough to pick this apart

T: Good sourness, touch of vinegar, lots of fruit. Pretty refreshing actually. But again, not familiar enough with the style

MF/D: Solid carbonation, sour throughout, finish of vinegar and over-ripe fruit

Notes: thanks to the guys at Greenville Beer Exchange for the advice

Pours out a small head that goes away and leaves a lacing that's kinda weak. The color is golden like champagne. Smell is sour, so is the taste. It's very fruity and sour at the same time. Mouthfeel is very good and I wouldn't mind having another one of these.

Poured from a small bottle into a La Fin Du Monde tall snifter. The pour is fairly clear, gold in color, and has a small white head. Nose is musty like an old book and has notes of apple and lemon.

Medium body, firm mouthfeel, and lots of flavor. You get a soft, fruity sweetness up front which is very quickly overtaken by a big, strong, sour apple acidity. The tartness intensifies through the finish, leaving the mouth very dry and salivating. Lingering flavors include sour apple, lime, and white wine.

This is an awesome beer. It's complex, flavorful, and refreshing. It's like a cross between a geuze and a triple. A must try for fans of sour beers.

A nice beer. It poured a nice dark amber colour with a littles head. Smell was sweet and sour and with one sip it did not disappoint. Although I was disappointed about the Alc content. I think that if it came in at 8% or higher it may have intensified the flavour a bit.

I like the sourness with alomost a vinegary flavour. Very drinakable and recomeneded.
