harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2009
75cl bottle from the Alvinne brewery shop. Orangey red colour with thin lasting off white head. Flemish red sour ale aroma. which is remarkably attractive. A touch of the wine, but almost sour cherry like. Touch of wood on the aroma too. That’s one good smelling beer. A little sweeter than a full on sour, which I guess comes from the wine. Certainly this beautiful wild cherry/red wine aroma/flavour comes through. It really is very good indeed. Just the right level of wild yeast character gives it a biting sourness on the finish, but wonderfully balanced by some very juicy light red fruits. Ridiculously drinkable. Good condition in mouth, the right level of carbonation, a little soft, not harsh, but enough to tingle the tongue. As a vinous Flemish sour, it really is remarkably good.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2009
Bottle thanks to mes at mesandsims. Alround rating: Exccellent stuff this, its like an acidic toffee apple of a drink, the yeasts and grapes really work well together and make it massivly drinkable.

Bottled. Aroma is vinous, caramel malts, has some vanilla, a bit oak. Hazy, red-brown coloured with an off-white, thin head. The taste is a bit sour, sweet, very fruity, bit vinous again with some vanilla. Medium bodied. On the dry side. Nice.

caesar (6685) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2009
Bottled from de Molen. Hazy brownish color, short head. Aroma is vinous, some vanilla, bit malt, bit fruity. Sour taste, fruity. Didnt know it was only 5.5%, was expecting a heavy bomber, as they are usually double barrel oak brewers reserve stuff :P

bierkoning (12581) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2009
Bottle. Amber color. Vinous aroma with vanilla, grapes and cherry. Light sour flavor with grapes, vanilla, just a touch of oak and toffee. Vinous notes. First rate thirst quencher, but not as complex and sour as I thought it would be.

MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2009 Bottle, 5.5%. The aroma starts off weakly fruity, with some vanilla from the oak. Some citric aroma notes as well, reminding me of Brett. Quite cloudy dark grey brown colour. Very small white head. The flavour starts off citric, very fruity and vinous. Tastes like grape juice, and even more acidic. Nicely refreshing. Some vanilla in the aftertaste, slightly rough bitterness.
