jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2004
Aroma is caramel, figes and fruity. Copper, off-white head, fair lace. Sweet, caramel, light bitter, fruity, little sticky. Reading Jorisís rating of this beer I imagen there must be a mistake and heís confusing it with another beer or the brewer decided to complety change his recipe. This doesnít taste like a flemish sour ale. Itís more like a good Palm.

(Dutch ratebeermeeting) Aroma of oranges and malts. Cloudy, orange coloured with a lasting, white head. Taste is sweet, fruity, some bitterness and caramel malts. Quite dry. Okay.

bierkoning (11044) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2004
Amber color, lasting frothy head, just a touch of haziness. Vinous aroma with grapes and pear. Absolutely bone dry. Bitter flavor, vinous and just a hint of wood. Apple and grapes, with just a touch of tartness. Bitter and fruity aftertaste. Very tasty and complex. JorisPPattyn is right. Drink this!

diabel (1629) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2004
Bottle Frothy, off-white head - moslty diminishing. Spare lace. Amber, sparkling body. Toffee, herbs, medicine in the aroma. Medium to fully bodied. Averagily carbonation. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet initial flavour. Lightly bitter (averagily long finish. Actually I donít get why this is so superb.

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2004
Dry caramel and minuscule peaches idling complacently...Dabbling with earthy malt, vegetable innuendos scare the palate, although they are quite inoffensive...Iím sorry but I really donít see the Flemish Sour in this one, not in the least bit, what I had was more like a regular, unfulfilling amber ale...

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2004
Copper pour wearing a thin off-white head. Aroma proposes caramelic malt, moderate yeastiness. Thereís something oily going on as well. Fruity palate with earthy cranberries and cherries dealing with yeasty tones. Highly carbonated thin-medium body carries little off-flavors, almost vegetably, almost cardboardish. I must have missed something seeing the other reviews or this bottle was not in splendid shape, because there was nothing too interesting in there with more oxidation than youíd hope for and a hard time finding anything related to flanders sour ales besides ever so slight woody suggestions.

rauchbier (3655) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2004
Tap, ZBF 2004. Hazy amber, off white head and good condition. Spicy and yeasty with some soapy hoppiness in the nose. Sweet and fruity in the mouth with some low caramel that lingers into the finish.
