COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A typical Flemish beer with a pleasant wine-like taste and a rich past. This dark brown beer, which is matured in oak casks, has a slightly acid aftertaste.

JK (4527) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Yeast and fruit aroma. Red with a lasting head. Only a little sediment. Flavor is mostly of yeast. Somewhat sour and very little acidity.

hopscotch (9258) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Bottle... Deep, clear, ruby ale with a small, off-white head. The nose is just plain offensive. Acidic, but vomitous. Apple cider vinegar splattered on unrefrigerated, overripe sausage. Acidic flavor, but then sickeningly sweet as well. Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes flat and lifeless. I should rate it lower since I would probably prefer a Bud!

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Had this 5 years past expiry-date. 5% ABV. Very dark, very dry with a light body - both in alcohol and mouthfeel. Very nice thirst-quencher. Some weird black currant in the palate.

fiulijn (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2005
Red- amber color; huge head. The aroma is vinous and quite sour. The taste is too simple, some (low) sweetness, very low sourness, no fruitness. Not the top.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Tobacco and balsamic vinegar notes with a sour fruit palate. Roast malt possibly some biscuit and specialB. Very soft wood hints witha drying refreshing acidity. Sour and dry finish with a bit of walnut acidity.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2005
Bottled. Vineous, vinegary aroma. Slightly tart, acidic, balsamico vinegary taste. Somewhat sweet. Nice.

JonMoore (1878) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2004
Looks like an altbier, dark brown with a frothy light brown head. Aroma is sweet and sour, cider like. Quite a nice gently sour, fruity taste. Astringent. I like this.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2004
Dark amber colored with a frothy long lasting light tan head. Dusty and sour woody aroma with cheesy tones. Mild flavor with some sourness. Malty, woody and grapefruity. Berry notes also. A classic example of a Flemish Sour Ale. Nice, but not very dangerous!

pivo (2571) - GERMANY - OCT 2, 2004
Slight chocolate nose with some vinegar. Dark clear brown and a low lathery head. Earthy tones in the body with a tinge of sour towards the end. Then turns to tobacco a little. Varied profile of interesting flavors that is blended really well.
