look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: 4.5 Crystal clear, pale gold. One-inch off-white head that lasts about a minute.

S: 4 Pretty mild. There’s a good amount of funk at first with some pepper, bread, lemon, and oak.

T: 4.25 Quite tart at first with slightly sweet bready malt closely behind. Lots of white pepper and lemon that go very well with the tart/funk flavors. Very light bitterness on the aftertaste.

M: 4.25 Farily light but not too thin. There’s enough there that makes the beer feel substantial but also leaves you wanting more. The dry finish is very nice, but there could be a bit more carbonation.

O: 4.25 This beer is easy to get and very pleasing if you’re looking to satisfy a sour craving. There are a lot of really nice flavors and a good tartness level. Not quite up there with some of the popular gueuze offerings, but a solid alternative.

With the utmost clean and lactic character possible, the sour pale ale of De Branandere launches with citrus, cellar and cork playing major roles.

Its bright golden austere seems harmless enough, perhaps anticipating pilsner flavor to the eye. But once the nose draws near, its tart acidity takes hold. Dry cider at first, then the waves of vinous white wine, corklike must, attic wood and the piquant tart bitterness of dried lime.

Across the middle, the short-lived bready sweetness loosens and seems to dissolve mid stream. What's left is tangy lemon, lime, crabapple and under-ripened berry. Glimmers of white wine vinegar come to mind as the beer dives into a quick finish.

And that's where the ale fleets the palate with abrupt dryness- clean, crisp and sudden. Far sooner than the palate would prefer, the taste evaporates in a whimsical cloud that overs above the tongue. Much of its wonderment is better appreciated in a wheaty, vinous aftertaste, full of oak tanning than it is in actual time.

1 pint 9.4 fl. oz. bottle
Served in a teku glass

A - It is golden in color and topped with a couple inches of off-white head.

S - The smell is tart and funky. It smells like I am cutting up a green apple in an old cellar.

T - The taste is immediately tart reiterating that green apple connection. Then there is the dank basement aspect that comes into play. I can taste a little light fruit notes.

M - Moderate with tingling carbonation.

O - This is an affordable and remarkable sour beer. It is a great example of the style. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer.
