Imbibed from a bottle, as it was Batch 5 (no kegs of this one) at RRBC on 4/22/12.
Pours a clear gold, a little light. Not much head left after what looked like a typical amount of head from a Belgian yeast. Lots of citrus, peach, super sour. Hard to pick out the aromas in this one. Overall, flowery sweet with a heaping dose of tart. Speaking of which, the first thing you taste is a nearly overwhelming sourness, but it mellows fast. Lime is prevalent with a faint taste of sour cherry and strawberry. Winey aftertaste. White wine. Tartness comes after the wine, with very little hop aftertaste as well. Vinous hops. Very watery feel, but after sourness subsides, bitterness gives it some substance. Dry finish.
Beautiful. Complex. This has some flavors I've never had in a sour beer (cherry, strawberry) that I've enjoyed. I want to try it again and again to pick out the other flavors hidden inside.
