Bottle @ Dan’s house. Thanks Armon! Hazy, dark maroon appearance with a brown head. Tangy, rich raspberry, cherry, Gushers, red grape, spritzy vanilla aroma. Tart plum, rich cherry, a bit oaky, a touch vinous, tart flavor. Not overly complex but nice.

On tap at Trenchermen Chicago. Initial bite is sour and acidic but sweet caramelized flavors quickly rush in to this very balanced beer. Outstanding depth of flavor. Has almost everything you could ask for.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Grunerløkka festival. A clear, dark amber to brown beer with a dense, off-white head. Lightly sourish on the nose, dark, dried fruits, some berries and brown sugar. Semi-sweet on the palate, far from sticky, light tart. Berries, dried dark fruits and some sugar in the flavour. A pleasant one indeed, a sour in the way only Belgians seems to manage to make. 120825

Bottle, shared by fonefan. A cute-looking beer, clear ruby body topped by a creamy beige head. Slightly vinegar-ish aroma, but there’s enough caramel and sweetness to avoid it being unpleasant. The same goes for the flavor, there’s enough caramel sweetness to cover up most of the sourness, even though it was of a more pleasant kind in the aroma. Medium body, quite fizzy and a bit astringent. A decent sour ale, but it left me a bit uncertain whether I enjoyed it or not. (080412)

Whole Foods, Bowery, NY 330ml ($4): Pours a reddish brown with a dirty head. Aroma is cherries and sourness. Taste is woody, slightly sour, and a bit on the sweet side. The body is quite good, and the drinking quite easy.

33 cl. bottle sampled @ GBF 2012 // dark brown, reddish with a small head // sweetish smell, berries, cherries and even a touch of candy // sweetish sour malt, sourness on this one is quite light, touch of wood with lots of berries, sweet cherries, light tart and sour ending // medium bodied // expected this to suck but this is quite nice actually especially for a sweet sour beer which I usually hate // finally a Bockor beer that I like

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep ruby amber color with a finger or so of eggshell colored foam that slides to the edges and sticks here and there. Aromas are earthy malts and a big whiff of ripe black cherries and a hint of cider vinegar. On the palate there is a nice mouthfeel with good carbonation... flavors of cherry cola, sour plum and touches of earth malts. Nice finish with lingering tobacco and leather mingling with the residual sugars. A touch sweet but a mighty pleasant drinker at a very reasonable price.

One of the milder sour ales, I’ve had. Pours a wonderful deep red with a fast head with little lacing. Woody nose with a fruity front end and a very dry finish. Quite enjoyable.
