JorgeLee (1169) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2014
Tap at Moeder Fontainas. Amber brown colour, thick white head. Huge huge sour aroma, rarely happens that towards the end of a tasting you can smell a beer almost before it gets to the table! Sulphur, sour, nappies, sewage, fruity, and yet somehow appealing. Actually didn’t taste quite up to the smells, a little boozy maybe, heavy malt and funky sour, not quite the lengthy finish of say a Cantillon lambic. One of those beers which are an experience to even try.

This is a great sour. Vinous aroma and oaky woody and dark fruit aromas with some wine barrel in there as well. Maybe 6 of 10 vinous. Really like a consecration flavor with a bit more cherry flavor to it. A great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaske 0,75l på Den Gode Nabo i Trondheim i hyggelig selskap med Elsa & Kjersti 26 Okt 13. Her gikk jeg i baret: Den ble opplyst å være en Biere de Garde - men viste seg å være en Sour som ikke passet til den utmerkete maten. Jeg led den “skjebne” å måtte drikke den alene, men det var i grunnen en fornøyelse. Mørkebrun. Nesten ikke skum. Syrlig fruktaroma. Smaken er bringebær & kirsebær. Tørr syrlig ettersmak. Av mine bedre sure.

Capped 750 shared by Marcus. Pours rather ruddy orange brown with no head. Aroma is sour and woody. And fruit. Med body. Flavor is tart, fruity, woody, tending towards sour. Seems to develop cherry notes. Exquisite.

marcus (6418) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours orange copper with a transient beige head and a sour fruit and oak aroma. There is a delicious very sour fruit flavor with a hint of cherry and lots of oak.
