12.7 oz black fancy pants label. Dark ruby color. Aroma is distant, but some nice hints of cherries and berries. Flavor is cherries, lemon and a slight vinegar flavor. Lightly sour, not overdone. Sessionable. Tasty.

Tap at Max’s. Brownish red. Aroma of plums and cherries. Flavor starts sweet and becomes progressively more sour. Not bad.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Pours a brownish amber color with a fast fleeting spritzy head that reduces to a glassy surface. Smells of sour cherries and wet wood. Light to medium nectar with excellent carbonation. Mildly sour with a defined plumb like essence and a bone dry finish. Mildly complex yet pretty tasty.

If this is a "typical Flemish beer", I feel bad for typical Flemish beer drinkers. Rather bland, lightly sweet, some carmel, very lightly tart, touch of cherry. Very watery finish. Meh.

Sampled at the 2010 Crescent Moon Extreme Beer Festival. Pours a dark reddish amber with a thin off-white head. Has a butterscotch bourbon aroma. There’s a mild tartness to the taste. Cherries and lemons. Has a very quick finish that leaves almost nothing on the palate.

Bottle thanks to 7ways!
Dark mahogany with a thick white head. Generally sweet nose of tart cherry, some lemon, caramel, and a touch of wood. The flavor is equally balanced, caramel and wood with light earth and lemon. Thin body, light carbonation. This would be really nice with a bit more carbonation and variety in the flavor. It’s pleasant as it is, kind of a flemish sour with the balsamic notes taken out. Reminds me of Vichtenaar.

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2010
Bottle pours a brilliant burnt ruby w/ a restrained khaki colored head. Aroma shows cranberry, pear, and some nice musty oak. Flavor leans more towards tart raspberry with tea and some more oak. Overall body is light-moderate and is only mildy tart and acidic. Definately a less aggressive, more entry level type of sour, but nice. Not overly complicated but refreshing and I could see myself drinking a few of these.

bhensonb (13996) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours brilliant, medium ruby with a tall beige head. Mildly tart and acidic aroma. Medium body with almost fizzy carbonation. Flavor is only lightly tart and acidic. Rather fresh and fruity. A bit astringent. Seems to be a bit woody in the finish. Bit like a popsicle stick. Light and refreshing. Would substitute for a rose sparkling wine - minus some AB.
