4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a beautiful, barely transparent dark chestnut with a fairly thick buff head. Aroma has a strong and fairly sweet cherry overtone plus apple and nutty hints. Sweet, malty flavor is almost more like a cider than a beer, just a tad sour, a strong cherry note with touches of pear and apple and a whisper of banana. Mouthfeel is lively and fairly firm. Worth seeking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Hop City in Atlanta. Pint glass pour in my hotel room. Pours a deep red-brown with a thick, fast diminishing head. Great aroma of sour cherries, dark fruits, and acidic. The taste was a little less exciting than the aroma. The cherries and fruits come through, but it really isn’t very tart. Flavor is fine, but just mild. Little acid to go along. Light body, smooth finish. Overall good, but oddly light in flavor.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a murky very dark amber color with a light tan/off white head. Tart Chardonnay nose. Medium to full body, wet texture, with some astringency at the finish. Creamy caramel flavor blends perfectly with tart apple and plum bringing about an unexpected and very pleasant flavor profile.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose consists of vinegar, must, dry oak and an odd hint of clove-like spice. Pours a rich dark brown with a quickly disappearing khaki head. Dry on the palate with a bit of tart sourness. Some wood. The tartness really comes out as the beer warms. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Refrigerated 75 cl green bottle that says Strubbe’s Grand Cru Flemish Ale (beer of the month club) corked and capped poured into a tulip (the cork did not come out of the bottle the glass broke). Pours translucent dark brown with crimson highlights and small off-white head. Aroma is light tart, medium/light body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is light tartness, vineous, some cherries, some sweetness. Easy to drink and pretty good.

Nice example of the style. Not by favourite, but still unique and worth a try.
