Maria (10164) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 25, 2008
Tasting at my place. Courtesy of Fonefan. Red-golden with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is slightly sour with notes of malt and hints of berries. The flavour is slightly sour with notes of berries, malt, citrus. It’s one of the thinner sour ales, but uncomplicated, easy to drink and quite charming.

jazz88 (2556) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 19, 2008
Tap @ Toronado on 4/18/08. A dark reddish brown color with a tan head. Semi-sweet and sour flavors but nicely balanced with a light ginger spice. Not nearly as robust enough to challenge the favorites of this style but easily and enjoyably drinkable.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 14, 2008
On-tap at O’Briens. $7 for a pint, definitely not worth it. Pours reddish brown with a off-white head of very fine bubbles, decent retention. Smells sour, cherries and a little funk. Tastes of anice balance of cherries and malts, not all that sour. A good bit earthy tasting as well. Medium body, subdued and smooth carbonation.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2008
On tap @ Stone. I actually really enjoyed this beer and thought it would have a little bit better ratings. Pours a hazy dark brown with basically no head. Aroma is of sour fruit. Wasn’t overpowering sour, but still had a nice little sour kick. My girlfriend actually really enjoyed this beer as well. Nice and smooth though...very good.
