3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle: poured brown with red highlights and a thick light tan head. Light dark fruit aroma with some cherries and sour notes. Flavor is mildly sour and just a hint of sweetness. Actually quite drier than I would have thought. Nice body though. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, 330ml at A Cappella, Ghent. Clouded brown, red hints with cream head. Interesting that this is a sour ale, it is definitely tart and fruity with old ale flavours. Added in to this are sharp citric notes. An odd but in the end, satisfying mix.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 Sampled from a 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy blood red with a small khaki head. The aroma was spritzy apple and cherry with a hint of vinegar. The flavor was nutty, woody, very tart, extremely dry and had a light cherry element. The finish was long, tart and woody. The beer was a bit thin and watery. Interesting. I may revisit this one again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep, deep amber with a light brown head. Mostly cherry, grape, and some red currant in the nose. Moderately complex body with more cherry, grape, rhubarb, toffee, dirt and vinegar. Mouthfeel is kind of flabby with a fairly full body and little to no carbonation. Decent, but nothing like some of the spectacular sour ale efforts out there.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Pours a black cherry soda color with a creamy and layered thin head. Nose has some definite grape, and a much more mild cherry characteristic. Vinous mouthfeel, with flavors of cherry (much stronger than the nose), grapes, wood, and a mild vinegar kick in the finish. Becomes much harder to drink as it gets warm. kinda tastes like a bubbly red wine aged in oak with half the alcohol.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. High fluffy but lasting off-white head. Beautiful clear red brown body. Weak grape fruit aroma. Sweet and week grape fruit flavor but without the expected vinegar touch. Low carbonation, short aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Chesnut color, Farmhouse aroma, wood, malts, wine and balsamico. Smooth taste with a nice honeyed maltyness and a fine accent of winelike souryness. Nice carbonation, tastefull and easy drinking.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beautiful brown color with red beams. The aroma is a bit woody and cheesy, original. The flavor is of an ordinary Amber Ale, with a touch of wood and very light sourness, but without the sugar and body that I like in my beer. The final is therefore week.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is a brown with a small white head. Aroma is some tart fruit and a red wine/vinegar. Lots of oak comes off this brew. Flavor is just as good. Over the top oak with some bitter fruit and silky smooth malts. Like drinking velvet! A nice sour ale that is not that sour so you really get some of the complex flavors that some others hide under the sourness.
