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.

Pours a clear reddish brown color with a thin offwhite head. Dominant oak aroma with underlying sour cherries. Mild flavor of oak and sour cherries. The body has a light to medium thickness with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. It’s a very mellow flemish sour, it gets boring real fast.

rederic (3063) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2005
Deep reddish-winey brown color, with a frothy tan-colored head, oaky, winey, essence of cherry , with a tart note in the nose, follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sour and tart flavors, and a good acidity, winey, wet wood character, leading towards a tart fruity finish. Still my favorite style of beer.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2005
Bottle: Poured a clear red colored beer with a small head that quickly disappeared. Aroma of oak is clearly present thought not has much as in other example such as Rodenbach. Taste is slightly tart with some nice touch of oak and very subtle cheery. Probably of the best effort from this brewery.

argo0 (11665) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 24, 2005
UPDATED: APR 6, 2006 (4/6/06, 25cl bottle, best by 5/06) Night and day from the last tasting to this one. Clear copper body with small beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, cherry, oak, very inviting, obvious Flemish Sour. Taste is medium sweet, cherry, grape, some oak, sour. Light-medium body, somewhat watery. (8/3/7/3/14)

(9/24/05, 25cl bottle, best by 5/06) Big beige head atop a clear dark red-brown body. Aroma is medium sweet, oak, light cherry. Taste is medium sweet, cherry, light oak, light sourness. Watery light body. Not enough tartness, comes across more akin to a soda, or perhaps a fruit beer. (5/3/4/2/8)

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2005
This is like a low-carb version of a Flemish Sour. Nice deep purple/red/brown color, ring of lace around the edge. Aroma is sweet grapes and cherries. Flavor is lightly sour and very thin. What flavor it does have seems muted.

growler (74) - West Virginia, USA - AUG 20, 2005
bottle. Certainly not my favorite style but even with trying to be somewhat open minded, it is hard to find anything good to say about this brew. Deep brown with amber hues short white head. Every bit as sour as expected and more. I have a hard time coming up with a description of the taste because i typically shy away of anything that offensive. Not very good at all.

JK (4615) - 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 (9559) - 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 (25083) - 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.
