cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Bottle @ redlight redlight. Pours a red-tinged amber with a faint head that fades quickly. Subdued nose, mild tart, some vanilla, hints of sweet malt. Very smooth and slick, with a malty sweet edge leading to a mild tartness. Hints of acetic. Light sourness, cherries?, and oak. Decent Flemish red, seemed a little dialed back, but still enjoyable.

AgentSteve (1627) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Pours deep ruddy brown with a very thin tan head that dissipates quickly. Nose is tart fruit and a hint of oak. The flavor is quite complex with the same influences from the nose, but just containing more fruit and complexities. The finish is unique and enjoyable, with a bit more fruitiness, a subtle tartness, and a bit of nuttiness. As far as sours go, quite enjoyable and worthy of a higher score.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Decent, I think this is pretty underrated. Not terribly sour though, its actually quite malty and rich, with some vinous fruit and woody notes for the sour part, but just has more puckering acidity than sourness. Pretty drinkable overall.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2008 Bottle at PP bottle shop. Ryan thought this was OK, but I loved it for some reason. Not sour for a sour ale. Lots of oak in the aroma. Malty. Sweet creamy texture. Very drinkable. Medium body. Amber color. Yum! 8,3,8,5,18:4.2 Rerate at WeeHeavySD’s: 8,3,7,3,16: 3.7.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 3, 2008
2008 Bottle - Pours a dark amber, slight head and lacing. Aroma is all sour cherry and oak, flavour is tart fruit, wood and slight yeast. Quaffable and a fun experience, but not the best sour out there...

ABUSEDGOAT (2413) - California, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Darker ruby color, moderate head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is sweet with a light fruity sour end, lots of wood and vanilla. Medium bodied, only a light sourness, loads of vanilla sweetness. Nothing too crazy here, easy to drink.

wacho (52) - Izegem, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2008 het donkerbruine succesbier van brij Strubbe heeft een lichte fruitige smaak waarin ook de rijpherid van de foeders merkbaar zijn. Het laat zich gemakkelijk verleiden tot een glas meer en wordt beter met de wachttijd (deze die nu proefde was al 2 jaar oud, dus belegen

jake65 (2680) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 29, 2008
Bottle: Dark brown and ruby with a small beige head. Aroma is fruity and sour, rather middle of the road in intensity. Some candied sugar sweetness. Taste is dark fruits, a little vinous, sweet fruit into tart fruit, and a little bit of the barrel aging. Rather dry, but easy drinking and enjoyable.

moelikebeer (221) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 29, 2008
Corked bottle. Pour is clear amber-brown with little head. Aroma is sweet and slightly sour; pretty faint. Flavor was not nearly as sour as I was expecting. Medium body. Somewhat disappointing.
