GilBier (75) - Dendermonde, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2008
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.

fiulijn (16144) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2008
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.

thegreenrooster (3455) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 13, 2008
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.

Hank1980 (963) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Pours a ruby red with a small white head. Nose of tart fruit, cherry, and yeast. Taste is sweet, tart, and fruit. Some malt and wood as well. Mouth is prett well carbonated. Overall, a nice beer that’s not as sour as some other sours.

Botella. Clear deep amber-red colour with a short fizzy head. Nice woody dark fruity sour aroma. Good soft mouthfeel. The flavour has a pleasant roastiness with dark fruits, good soft sourness, some cherry and wood. Dry bitter fruity finish with a sour touch.

thewolf (11382) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2008
Bottle @ Plan B., Cph.
Pours deep brown with slight red edges. A big, creamy, off-white/beige head. Aroma is sweet, lightly roasted malts, some toffee, good woodiness and light tartness. Fine, creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is lovely softly tart, good caramel, some light chocolate and roasted malts. Lots of dry, tart wood in the aftertaste - very dry.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Tap at CityBeer. Pours with a brown red color and a medium head. Aromas of cherries, wood and some funkiness. Flavors of oak, wood and some sour notes. Most distinct are the cheryy notes that linger on the palate. I enjoyed this beer probably because it is not so overly sour.

beerguy101 (5319) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 6, 2008
This sour ale pours a deep red color from a 33cl bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is tart cherry, some wood and some malts. A medium bodied sour ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy. Its more tart and tannic tasting than fruity and tart. It has that malt and wood of a Rodenbach, but not the fruity tart flavors. Nice carbonation. Very enjoyable drinking beer. Some vinous woody flavors at the finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle at home - tasting. Red/brown - white head. Nice smooth body. Malty, sweetness, brown sugar, carpenter-glue, light sourish, woody, tar, red berries. Very nice.

IrishBoy (3926) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 23, 2008
33cl bottle from mcbackus at Knightly Spirits;Cap says 08 2010 so I guess that is best by; Nose is slightly funky cherries and woodiness; dark cherry brown with a small beige head; flavor is minor tartness with light cherries, and a lot of oakiness; finish slightly tart. Is this really a "SOUR" ale?
