Poured from a bottle into St Somewhere tasting glass. Bottle was generously shared by Bob Sylvester at his brewery.

Funky, interesting Loon-y aroma, perfect carb, mouthfeel, color. Taste was sharply sour. Less apricot than I expected, and much more sour. But definitely wonderful.

Goodness gracious. This beer is incredible. 2014 bottle consumed ~18 months later.

Wonderful aroma. Equally wonderful taste. Sour, funky, tart apricots. Light to medium mouth feel.

2014, drunk sept. 2015. Teku
Firm lactic sourness, no vinegar, underripe apricot, and the signature musty cellar funk that is the trademark of Jean van Roy's blends.
Golden color, short lived head, typical as far as sours go
Very quenching overall, paired well with salmon. Acidity higher than Boon's Geuze and less harsh than Hanssens

FINALLY got to try this guy. Poured from bottle to flute.

A- Beautiful, hazy orange the seems to radiate outward.
S- Tart and funky apricot skins. Some underlying sweetness. Barnish.
T- Wow. This definitely lived up to the hype for me. One of the greatest sours I have had. The funk doesn't mask the fruit but complements it.
M- Very smooth with some nice carbonation.
D- Dear Lord this was amazing. Hopefully I can snag a bottle in the future.

2015 vintage poured into a snifter

L - thick white head from the carbonation...a little cloudy

S - best smell of this type i've had...major fruity tart in the smell and some funk...minimal bready yeast stmell which usually is overpowering...a little grassy lemon too

T - acidic, sour apricot and stone fruit...really well balanced with some but not too much funk

F - smooth, flavors linger, and easy to drink

O - top of its class...worthy of the hype will seek this out again

2011 vintage next to the 2015. Wow, remarkable differences. The 2011 was beautifully funky and still had a lot of fruit. The 2015 was indeed tasting young, mostly fruit and brett. ISO old Fou :)!
