Dark red with medium, off-white head. Highly carbonated. Fruity/yeasty aroma. Nicely balanced sour/sweet taste with lingering sourness and oak/vanilla.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2007
Tap, at ZBF 2006. Copper bronze, thin shortlived white head and moderate condition. Slightly fruity initially in the nose with some metallic tartness and a caramel and brown sugar sweetness, more metallic notes in the mouth with some fruity sweetness and notes of burnt toffee, gently tart and somewhat nondescript finish

pintocb (645) - Darsville, Georgia, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Pretty color, really catches the red from a light source. The aroma is really yeasty with a sour smell that smacks the hell out of you. Initially the flavor is similar to some other sours I’ve had, but maybe a little too thin and oaky. The lingering soapy aftertaste absolutely ruins this beer for me. I tried a sip straight from the bottle to make sure it wasn’t my glass. Its like Dawn in a cup. Bleah!

altonbrownd (3756) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2007
Bottle at home. Oaky brown colour. Tall sugary head. Sour and tangy nose. Taste of citrus, cherries and other fruits. Starts mildly sour and ends much more so. Peaking in the finish. Smooth and clean.

Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2007
From bottle at Zeno’s. Light sour ale aroma, with oaken tang and fruity malt character. Nice sour undertones, with some lactic character. Dark coppery amber clear with thin off-white lacing head. Medium body character with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts with typical sour ale profile. Light oaky start with lactic tang ang mild hoppy profile. Oaky sour finish and lactic tang. Finishes clean with hoppy sour tang. Nice sour ale.

caesar (4954) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2007
Bottled. Clear redbrown color, medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, some soft cherry, oak wood, bit dusty. Slight sour taste, quite malty, bit fruity. Decent.

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2007
Chestnut coloured with a nice Belgian off-white head that lasts. Toasty maltiness works hand in hand with the cherry like, yogurty lactic juicy acidity. A very authentic example. Oakiness comes through with vanilla hints while the sour level remains moderate and frankly fitting, enhancing the ensemble more than stealing the show. A very good one, though not going further than the definition of the oud bruin.

hopscotch (8893) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Bottle… Cloudy, dark crimson ale with orange highlights and a mid-sized, fizzy, khaki-colored head. Decent retention. Black cherry, lemon juice and sharp cheese aroma with earthy, woodsy notes as well. The flavor is sour, but not overbearingly so; sweet, but only mildly. Praline, buttered popcorn Jelly Belly® and wood. Medium-bodied and spritzy. Tart, buttered popcorn Jelly Belly® finish. Odd combos here, but tasty and appealing.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2007
Bottled. A deep red beer with a tan head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of berries and wood, with a slight acidity in the back ground. The flavor is sweet as well as acidic with notes of malt as well as strong notes of berries, and light notes of wood, which lends a dryness to the finish.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2007
Bottle (330ml). Very deep clear ruby with a small fizzy beige head (3+). Rich sour cherry aroma, hints of grape juice or very full-bodied cheap red wine. The taste has some serious sourness to it, lemon juice, sour yeast (is it bret? hell if I know), and much less cherry character - decent, but thin. Weak body, slightly sticky, decent acidity and carbonation - enjoyable, but fades a little too fast - and it’s a tad sweeter than I like in sour ales.
