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

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.

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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle: Pours a dark brown ebony color with a thin little head and a smidge of lacing. The nose is light and fruity with some cherry and subtle sour hints. Mild caramel and dough as well. The flavor is a little tart with a dry fruity flavor, balanced finish and a tangy overall experience. Not quite explosive enough or rich enough for my liking on the style, but it’s fun to get to try sour ales whenever they come into town.

dchmela (2853) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2008
Shared with my buddy Lee. Pours a muddy brownish dark amber with a thick white head. Dry cabernet grape aroma, slightly sour. Taste is slightly sour, dry grapes. Very refreshing, nothing over the top, not too sour. Finishes nice and dry with a hint of apple cherry.

Clear amber body, fast disappering beige head; Some cardboard in a malty nose with a slight fruity acid touch; Thin body with some acid, but not enough; Watery finish little malt aromas and little acid. Bad!

Poured a dark hazed brown color with a small off-white head. The aroma was fruity with notes of figs and brown sugar. Some sweetness to it. The flavor was fruity and sweet but dries out. Medium bodied.

Thanks to beastiefan2k for sharing. Deep brown beer with a thin tan head. Aroma is quite sweet and subtle. Lightly honeyish and candyish with a soft caramelly sweetness. A touch of light spice and woodiness. Sweet and a little bit metallic.

jrob21 (2968) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2008
Cloudy brown color with a minimal tan head. Yeast and caramel aroma but mostly yeast. The sour is very faint and the flavor has a bit of wood floating on the back of the palate. Crisp, slightly carbonated palate as well. Not overly exciting and if you are looking for a sour bomb, look someplace else. Need a little more fruit and/or malt backbone.

notalush (5449) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2008
Thanks to beastiefan2k for sharing - clear amber beer, with a minimal head - the smell is a little metallic up front, some fruity hints, floral notes - fairly soft in the mouth - a little bit grainy - rather mild flavor - some bready character and vegetal notes - a tiny bit of oak and cereal grains through the finish - the finish tastes like a vanilla ice cream cone - wierd.
