Attractive enough reddish brown ale, smells sour, tastes sour. Some sweet fruit, but mostly just sour. Pleasant enough draft with a Monk’s burger at Monk’s but pretty one dimensional. Can’t imagine having a lambic with food, and this lacked the barnyard stiink of a true lambic, but more like a lambic than a Belgian sour brown.

Reddish/brownish/purplish color, clear, sour cherry aroma, with hints of earth and wood. Flavor is tart, pleasant hint of cherries, not bad.

If you are curious about this ale, and don’t live near Phlladelphia, you might try adding cider vinegar to a perfectly good belgian ale until you almost don’t want to drink it anymore. This is what happens when beer goes bad, people.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2005 Dark red-brown coloured, little head. Sour and fruity aroma, quite vinous. Sour flavour, fruity and refreshing. Finishes too watery to really impress, but nevertheless this is a good example of a great style.

Bottled. A dark browny, red coloured beer with little head. The aroma is sour and fruity but mixed in there is a bit of ’market rubbish bins’ The taste is fruity sour and a bit fusty. Very quenching and lip snapping. My wife and Dad who were with me but thought this was foul, but I rather liked it.

Bottled (BB 07/2007)
Dark brown, not much head. Personal sour aroma of molasses, yeast and grapefruit. Medium-bodied, sour and fruity. Short bittersweet aftertaste. Quite easy to drink despite od sourness.

Deep copper/red color with long lasting white head. Aroma is tart. Flavor is sour cherries, ..I found this more full bodied than other reviewers. It has a fairly dry finish.

Pours beatuifully, with a short lasting soda head. Aroma is yeasty and tart. Body is a little thin, but the less-than-complete cherry bill is still fantastic. Upping the ingedient ante would have made this fantastic. On the dry side.
