11.2oz into a tulip (code 40266). Pours a crystal-clear golden color w/ a sudsy bright white head, sticky lace, moderate carb.

Aroma is tart, funky, a little grassy.

Taste is sour, oaky, vinous. Like a Russian River sour, but cheaper.

Mouthfeel is clean & crisp w/ a sharp bite on the finish. Refreshing, dry.

Overall, I think I've found a new go-to beer. A solid, interesting Belgian ale.

750ml

Appearance. Pours yellow gold with a very light haze and 2 fingers of frothy white head that fades quick.

Smell. Green apples, funky wood, a little cherry and sour red berries, some sweet grains and yeast.

Taste. Sour lemon and green grapes, fresh cut wood, some light dry funk and a little bit of bitterness.

Mouthfeel. Medium body with light, fine carbonation. Felt a little bit watery to me.

Overall. Nice beer that's complex and sour enough to keep me interested through the 750, but easy drinking enough to polish it off a bit too fast ;-)

Poured into a tulip glass. A hazy yellow/gold color with a finger's width white head that laces the glass. Sweet citrus tang with vinegar and biscuit malt aromas.

On first taste, you get a bit of the wood flavor from the cask along with a nice sour citrus tang and biscuit malt. The aftertaste leaves a muted sour tang and a little of the wood flavor. It is a surprisingly clean and smooth aftertaste for such a strong flavor. Very refreshing and drinkable. No alcohol flavors.

Pale golden in my very tall Petrus tulip. Looks just like a lager. Some sudsy head and moderately prickly on the tongue. A whiff of vinegrette dressing in the nose.

A distinct sourness surprises the palate-- mine at least-- wich gradually mellows to part of the complexity. Thin and sharp. Some sweet and sour flavors. Funky fruitiness, but no yeast flavor as in some other Belgian styles. Quite bitter aftertaste and rather woody. I would have to taste a few more beers in this category to see what possibilities there are. It seems like a curiosity rather than something I'd want to try again.

From the big Belgian-style bottle.
