A: 4.0 - Slightly hazy bright gold color with a slow to develop, moderate head.
S: 4.25 - Lots of nice brett scent, along with highly fruity yeastiness.
T: 3.75 - Not nearly as sour as some JPs--just a little tart, with plenty of brett flavor. Bitterness is restrained. Fruity like tart pears or apples. Very well attenuated and bone dry.
M: 4.0 - Slightly astringent, rather tannic. Body is a little thin, probably from the attenuation.
O: 4.0 - Nice beer for new year's day, after all the IPAs I had last night!

375ml bottle poured into snifter

A: dirty straw color with good clarity not a bad head but it was gone quick but very bubbly around the rim left

S: It smells tart, a little lemon, some vinegar it smells like a dry wine with maybe some oak

T: has a lot of the same characteristics as the nose but not near as sour as I thought it was going to be or carbonated. Getting a little bit of a white grape taste which is nice

M: Light to more medium low carbonation

O: It's just ok I don't think it is worth the price of admission I've had Lambics and gueuze while not my style they are much better than this. Although if you need a quick fix why not grab it?

Sometimes the info on the side of the bottle says more about what the brewer hoped it would taste like rather than what it actually tastes like. This beer is exactly what the label says it is. A Belgian strong golden ale, spicy and peppery with a gentle hop bouquet. I also get a very lemony flavor. Not bad at all, but I don't appreciate it as much as some of the other reviewers.
