maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2004
UPDATED: APR 6, 2006 Bottled. A fresh, fizzy, funky aroma with some sugary fruit to this hazy brown coloured beer. The taste is creamy with strawberry notes and some candy sugar. Nicely drinkable at a sensible strength.

Light spicy sugar aroma. Dark gold with a beige head. Sweet fruity and malty start with a mild dry finish. Slight spice there too. Medium bodied. Good session beer.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2004
Bottle at the Beer Circus, Croydon, London.. Sourish, aged aroma, sherbet. Golden hazy, slight, tight white head. Loads of fruit, malt evident, juicy and even some spice. Very tasty.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Hazy orange reddish body, fine off-white head. Mild malty aroma with hints of fruit specially peach. Rather artificial. Yeast, berries and fruit in the flavor. Mild and with no sourness. Is this really a Flemish Sour Ale??

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 Joris’s rating of this beer I imagen there must be a mistake and he’s confusing it with another beer or the brewer decided to complety change his recipe. This doesn’t taste like a flemish sour ale. It’s more like a good Palm.

skortila (4853) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2004
(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.

jerohen (2076) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2004
Dutch Ratebeer Meeting. Orange golden coloured, small head. Slightly alcoholic, some spices, bit sharp. Not really as special as the name suggests.

caesar (5828) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2004
Slightly hazy orange color, short head. Aroma is milky, hoppy, bit caramel malt. Caramel malty and fruity taste. Bit bitter palate. Average beer.

bierkoning (11222) - 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!
