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.
