Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2013 Special thanks to Jeff for sharing his bottle. Apparently this is a rep-only sort of deal. Aroma of candied apples, funky brett yeast, slight oak and sour cherry. Pours red with nice pink film. Taste is wonderfully tart. Sour cherry, crab grass, great wood bourbon notes. Opens with a sharp tartness and finished with a sweet candy finish with sour cherry aftertaste. Simply a wonderful brew.

bhensonb (12308) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 3, 2015
750 c&c from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours darkly ruddy, but clear, with no even an attempted head. Aroma is West-Vlaanderen with a hint of bourbon. Full body or damn near. Flavor is sour/sour with red berry and lots of flavors that aren’t bourbon. Like oak. Yet bourbon notes do pervade the liquid. Especially notable during belches. Astringent. Tart. Sour. Oak. Red berry. OMYFG! This should be in the nomination list for beer of a life time.

Alengrin (3132) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2014
Oak-aged sour ale apparently inspired by ’Flemish red’, the sour variant of oud bruin. Off-white, creamy, stable head, cloudy burgundy colour. Strong aroma of wine vinegar, old madera, passion fruit, gooseberry, redcurrant, lemon, white grapes, wood. Taste begins with lemony freshness and red berry kind of sourishness, caramelly malts, sweetish base, very fruity, increasing acidity towards the finish and ending dry, long and complex. Very nice.
