3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Last sampel courtesy of maniac in my echo of the RBSG 07. Medium amber. Still some decent carbonation. Great nose of sour cherry and bitter almond with a touch of brett. Flavor unfortunately is considerably more muted, with almost hefe like flavors of clove and banana dominating, with no real sourness. Great nose, too bad the flavor wasn’t anything like it. I probably should have put the aroma at a 9 and the flavor at a 6, but you get the idea.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Old Boise Brewfest: Light amber pour with a moderate off-white head. Nose is vibrant and fruity, some caramel and malts. Tastes overly sweet with light citrus fruit notes and caramel. I have a bottle to age and may re-rate on this...

Lighter red than i would expect, didn’t get a big head. My notes pretty much say that has a belgian aroma, light flavour and spice, not very sour.

On Tap at the Old Boise Brew Fest 2007 Pours out a clear amber topped with a tan head. A light belg aroma with a little spice. This was not much of a Flemish sour to me.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On Tap at the Old Boise Brew Fest. Light yellowish amber witha small off-white head. LIght sweet grainy malt aroma with some fruitiness. Flavor was again, sweet, plain, lacking in much character. No lactic or acid souness that I could detect either. I would gladly trade a better product for a less verbose and pretentious commercial description. Dissapointing.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 ounce bottle, not for retail sale sample. Very light in color, with a filmy head. Sweet fruits and pumpkin spice aroma, seems way off for the style. Flavor is absolutely nothing like an oud bruin. Where do I begin? Sweet beyond belief, not sour at all, no barrel character….was this even aged in wood?. The bacteria cultures just didn’t seem to work any magic. Really, really just awful and a drain pour for me. I sampled this next to Russian River Supplication and this beer absolutely tasted and smelled like nothing, when compared to the Supplication. I sampled what I believe was a non bottle conditioned sample, so if my score ends up being against that grain, I’ll pony up and by a Liter.

on tap-pours a light tan head and amber color. Aroma is dark/medium malt. Taste is dark/medium malt, vinuous/fruity, vinegar, yeast-clove, secondary earthy hops/interesting. OK carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at the brewey tasting room. Light brown with a good light tan head. Sweet fruity aroma. I typically don’t go for these types because they’re just to darn sweet for me but this was very good and at only 6% makes it an easy drinker. Wish I had of bought the big bottle
