Poured into a Lindemans stange. Pours a bright golden amber with a two finger pure white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of fruit and sourness are evident immediately on opening the bottle, which is both crown capped and corked, kinda classy. Aroma in the glass is similar, sour apple and grape with funky yeast. Flavor is lemon citrus, apple and grape juice, very tart with wild yeast funkiness. Finishes tart and funky with hints of woodiness. Nice active carbonation makes it look good in the glass and gives a nice mouth feel. The tart fruit and yeast funk were actually not too much more intense than other old lambics, which worked well for me. I'm not a big sour fan, but wanted to try this style, and this satisfied my taste for a champagne like, light sour ale. A fairly classy looking bottle and it looks great in the glass. If I liked sours a bit more, this would be in my fridge all the time.

Golden straw color that is hugely carbonated beverage comes with more head than you can shake a stick at. Watching the bubbles rise to the top almost reminds me of sparkling white wine or a champagne. I could not get my nose out of this beer, there's a peach note with musty mushrooms, hay, sour blueberries, farmhouse, wood, lemon, just straight up funk. And it smelled really good. The taste was sour, the bottle was about a year old but still had a brightness to it. Blueberries and peach, sour funk all with a nice prickly carbonation.

Really a fun beer to share with others and watch people guess all the aromas and what they are tasting in it. Great beer.

A benchmark for the style - well balanced and delicious

aroma: sweet and sour funk with lemon citrus, pepper and musty notes.

taste: lemon citrus, pepper, funk, wood, slight sherbet and some grapefruit bitterness. Great balance of sweet, sour and spice.

two words: quality beer!
