This is probably one of the most unique beers I've had. It's a pale yellow, not unlike Hoegaarden. The taste comes on strong and kicks you in the tongue with sourness, but it's not unpleasant. As you drink more the sourness subsides and flavors of orange and tang are left. Is a beer that appeals to different areas of the tongue. It also displays flavors of oak due to the aging. So we have flavors of oak, orange, sour, green wood, and hops to bring it all together. And it's tame enough to drink non-stop. Fantastic

Appearance: very hazy, quite light yellow. Huge fluffy head. Different and nice.
Smell: full disclosure, I'm a newbie for this style. Interesting for sure. Some sweet years tines, and sour funk.
Taste: yow. Certainly fits the description of the style. Tastes like green apple cider at first. Over the initial shock...very interesting. Not sure I'll be seeking this out but who knows.
Overall: will revisit this after I gain a bit more experience with the style. Very interesting.

Poured into wine glass.

A - Beautiful pale brown color, with lots of head (2 fingers).

S - A nice dry, oak smell, lots of mild, sour smells.

T - Superb. Very bold in sour flavors, yet smooth. If this were your first sour beer, you couldn't help but want more. Not at all overpowering in sour, tart tastes. This is just so delicious.

M - Just right for the beer. Medium bodied.

O - Much better than the regular Petrus flanders beer. More bold sour flavors that go so well with the other complext tastes. I'll definitely have this again.
