look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

This beer poured a ruby red with little to no head. Upon first appearance it looks brown but once held against the light it shows it's true roots.

The aroma is absolute pure sour/sweet. Light vinegar bitterness up front but a mellower fruit quality hidden in the background.

This was a wonderful sour ale as the taste goes. Bitter/tart flavor up front but some hidden fruit in the finish. An easy drinking sour beer this can be enjoyed and shared without losing any of its appeal.

Nice presence on the palate makes this a beer worth coming back to. I recommend this beer to anyone looking to get into sour ales and needs something not overbearing to start their journey from. I beer that I have overlooked for too long but will now be sharing with friends for some time to come.

330ml bottle. Snifter glass. Deep reddish brown, mahogany tints to the light. Beige froth shows nice retention & lacing. Oak, sour berry & grape aromas, tartar hues & slight sweetness. Tartar/sourness, fruity & woody notes over toasted malts on the forefront. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Silky palate, dense to watery texture. As expected from aromas, harsh tartiness remains in the middle & lingers into the finish. Thankfully, toasted maltiness holds it, making it refreshing instead of bothering. Grape & wood on the aftertaste. Sometimes I wonder if it is a malty wine –just kidding!, it´s a good job & nice spot of the Style. Suggested pairing with heavy spiced cooked beef meat.

Picked this up at Brewer's Haven in Boise.

A- Pours a dark reddish brown with a latte colored head. Large bubble disparate quickly.

S- Subtle, dark fruits, Belgian yeast slight sour melony nose. Smells like a slightly sour quad.

T- Similar to the smell, very light sourness, dark fruit dominates but the flavor is surprisingly light.

M- Heavy bodied and carbonated, slightly syrupy.

O- Good beer, surprisingly light and easy to drink. I would have liked more flavor , but it was good overall. I'd have it again.

Great beer. It serves as a dark thick liquid in the glass, but doesn't feel that way when drinking it. It is almost a normal beer except for the citric hint. It is derived from lambics, and therefore the flavor, but it is not like a lambic that is one bottle and done, this one you could drink a few easily.

Aroma is almost inexistent. Nice head. Good carbonation.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a mini snifter.

A: dark brown/red in color with very little head and a little lacing.

S: Not much, it's very subtle fruit like. I honestly can't pick up on much specifically do to how faint the aromas are.

T: a very mild tart, very simple taste profile and clean flavor finish. Simple but not exciting.

M: light, almost effervescent.

O: it's tasty and tart (a little), solid beer but nothing special. Due to its widespread availability when the mood strikes it should be easy to find.
