750 for only ~$10

the appearance is light orange, straw yellow color. smells sour and like grapes. taste is tart and sweet...tastes like grapes and sour fruit... . the carbonation is lively and it cuts across your tongue. pretty thin body, appropriate for the style. pretty high drinkability, i like the beer. good stuff.

Pours pale orange with a slight haziness. Large foamy head, champagne like that dissipates into a thin head. Lots of lacing. Smells of sour fruits, effervescence. Taste follows with an interesting blend of sour fruits, basically tastes a bit like rotting citrus without the stench of rot :). I haven't had a gueuze yet, but I assume this is what they are supposed to taste like. Gives an ancient type of feel, yet is elegant as well.

12oz capped and corked bottle (first beer to use a corkscrew on!) poured into my Duvel tulip. Label says bottled July 2010.

Appearance: Hazy golden color, pours with a huge white head that dissipates at a moderate pace and leaves no lacing.

Smell: Very tart, some lemon in there as well as sour apple

Taste: A tart as the smell would suggest, kinda fruity, lemon, sour apple, a little chalky, most of these flavors are strange to me and hard to describe. Some of it resembles the Ommegang beers I've had that were brewed with brett, but not on this level.

Mouthfeel: Mediumish body, high carbonation, encourages you to drink small amounts slowly.

Overall: Pretty good, but incredibly strange and foreign to me. I will try more sours, as they are interesting, but I will take my time with them. I will probably eventually revisit this when I get more experience with sours.

375mL (bottled 10/6/2011) into a tulip. Pours a clear coppery golden color w/ a big fluffy white head, vigorous carbonation.

Aroma is funky and vaguely sour, almost saison-like. Earthy, spicy, a little musty.

Taste is sharply acidic up front, lemony with an underlying sweetness, and then more sour on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied w/ a semi-dry finish. A little prickly from the carbonation.

Overall a pretty solid version of the style and certainly a good introduction, but better ones are readily available.
