Yikes! Hated this beer. Saw the barrel-aged ale on the label had myself ready for something delicous. I was sadly disappointed.

A: Looks like white grape juice.
S: Apples and grapes overwhelm
T: Sparkling sour white grape juice
M: Thin, sparkling
o: This stuff was so sour it gave me a stomach ache. Threw the last 1/4 of it out. I hated it that much. It tasted like sparkling grape juice that had gone bad. Paid $4 for a bottle would have rather thrown it in the street.

Enjoyed this bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass.

A: Pours a clear golden yellow hue with a 1-finger white head that rapidly dissipates into no lace and no trail down the side of the glass.

S: Very sour green apple aroma with a woody background.

T: Extremely tart and sour beer – I thought it might be contaminated at first sip. Sour green apples flavor with a big citrus punch to the face. Hints of wood and finishes sour and dry,

M: Medium body and minimal carbonation.

O: This was by far the most sour beer I’ve ever tasted – including lambics. It made my taste buds cry. This is a sipping beer – it took me and hour to drink it. At first I was overwhelmed by the sour tartness – but every sip was more pleasurable and by the end I realize how complex this brew was. Could I drink this every night – no way – but this is a beer to be savored.

By far the most disgusting stuff I have ever tasted. I am a huge beer lover but even Roseanne Barr's urine is more tasty.

Bought this is a pub in Lyon, France. Hoping this new beer was going to be good. But it almost made me puke. I love Krriek beer and Rochefort 10. This, however... was crap

Do not buy this

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.

330mL bottle, with a code of "41025" but I'm not sure what that means.

crystal clear golden straw color, with off-white head. it leave decent lacing as I drink. aroma is tart, sour, a little funky, but not fruity like some other sour beers. taste is quite sour, lemony, citrus bite. finishes dry though, refreshing. thin body, higher bright bubbly carbonation. works.

overall- nice, different beer.
