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.

jzzbassman (1530) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Tap @ Brick Store. Poured a clear orange with a really mousse like head. Woodsy aroma, with a lot of sourness. Winelike flavor, fruity, sweet, and sour finish.

Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Draught poured burgundy body with a thin tan head that quickly dissipated. Aroma was sour, slightly vinegar, raisin, licorice, heavily malty, and woody. The initial sourness was not the dominant trait in the flavor however and the vinegar was barely noticeable as a distinct flavor but enhanced the malt in juxtaposition. Rather it was fruitier, subtler darker malts playing around the front of the tongue, old hops on the back, dark fruits and licorice mostly, some alcohol. Like wine but definitely better.

meeple (62) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle. Deep rusty brown color, billowing tan head with moderate retention. Aroma is apple cider vinegar. Taste is sweet malt, soft but pronounced sourness, bitter hop finish. The malt and sourness blend together extremely well, but the finish kills the wonderfulness that preceeded it. A wonderful beer to savor in your mouth.

Joakgust (1272) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2009
Bottle, 75 cl - Burgundy colored beer with a large frothy reddish brownish head. The aroma is sweet and fresh with sourish notes of berries and wood. Malty flavor is also sweet with acidic notes of red berries, apple cider and some strawberry. Good sour ale, 2006 version better than 2005.

Itzjerm (1901) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAR 1, 2009
The aroma of this beer is the most intriguiing portion. It smells like a wine... taste like a wine crossed with beer. The problem with it overall is the lack of thick flavor, it almost seems watered down. Sour is light, with a dark fruit type flavor as mentioned below.

Oakes (14094) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 27, 2009
Reddish-brown. Light head. Barrely aroma with dark fruits (grape, plum) and a light chocolate note. Sweet & sour palate. Very woody, with a light plum fruitiness. Decent, wood-accented example.

wkalle (263) - SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2009
Pours a deep reddish brown with a dense lightbrown long lasting head with excellent lacing. Sweet malty aroma with some green fruits and cherries. Flavor is also sweet and malty but well supported by a dry slightly sour and tart finish. An elegant beer.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Bottle. Cloudy red-brown cherrywood color with scant tan head that disappears fast. Sweet-sour aroma with a little lactic acid. Hint of pedio. Damp wood. Not very fruity, surprisingly. No cherry. More like an old wet wood smell with organisms. Interesting and on the yogurty side. A wee bit of Play Doh in here too. Low soft carbonation. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky at times wiht a slight metallic taste in the finish but not bad. Easy, accessible, and not sour, but sweet, like dried cranberries, candied walnuts, and a balsamic kiss. Really nice.
