iowaherkeye (2700) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAY 9, 2009
On tap @ The Trappist. Dark copper brown with a two finger beige head, fair retention. Light vinegar, tart cherries, and old barrels up front. Saltines and sweet caramel behind. Flavor is still salty, but not really all that sour--I also wouldn’t call it bland by any means, but the flavor does seem muted. The cherries only show up in the finish, and the caramel turns more earthy. Finish is saltines with bitterness @ a 2, sourness @ a 2-3. Light carbonation with a light to medium body. Fair.

Bottle from Oak Tree. Slightly murky copper in color with a small lasting tan head. Earth, caramel, sour cherry, slight metal in the aroma. Taste: a bit sweet for a flemish red, caramel, some light sour cherry, light balsamic vinegar, and some metallic notes....

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 27, 2009
Pours dull, murky brownn with a thin tan head. Aroma of sour cherries and grpes, and a subtle oakiness. Subdued flavor of red wine vinegar and sour grapes. Light sourness, the oak shows up mostly in the finish, which fades quickly. Decent body, lightly carbonated. (11.2 oz. bottle)

1FastSTi (3346) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2009
What an average beer. This one poured to a really hazy brown body with a thin white head and spotty lacing. The aroma is weird. Buttered wood and pale malt. The flavor is very lightly sour with some brown malts but no nuttiness. Aged oak. Subtle. The palate is medium bodied. Boring!

madvike (3119) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2009
On tap at the Malt House - Sexy mahogany pour with a small head. Smells acidic, with a vinegar and lactic character, with pretty aggressive cherries and dark fruit. Taste starts out woody, flows into a dry, fruity cherry taste, some acidic goodness, and finishes with more oak. The body is light-medium with a little too much harsh carbonation. A solid sour...I liked this one.

17thfloor (2439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2009
Bottle shared with funkybrewster. Pours a dark reddish amber with a fine fizzy beige head. Aroma is moldy cherry yogurt, touch of vinegar and berries. First taste is a nice woodiness, some cherry yogurt, fairly dry, lactic acid is not harsh at all, just moderately sour. Medium mouthful with a softer sizzling carbonation.

Kodos (205) - USA - APR 19, 2009
On Tap. Deep cherry with a large long lasting head. Tart fruit sweet malt with a hint of wood in the nose. A nice balance of sweet and sour fruit with an acidic undertone. Finishes slightly sour. A good intro to the style

nick76 (4315) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2009
The aroma is sweet and sour with vinegar, fruit, and oak. The appearance is amber with a large head and floating particles. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. The finish is sour. Overall it’s sweeter than most of the style but this is probably likable for many that like the style. I have had better.

mspindler (489) - Alta Loma, California, USA - MAR 29, 2009
On tap at the Pizza Port Belgian Beer Party. Pours a hazy burgundy with an off white head. Aroma is slightly sour with vinegar, malt, and a bit of wood. Flavor is Too sweet for my liking and not sour enough. Very fruity and sweet Maybe it was because of all the other fantastic beer that day, but this just seemed bland.
