dmac (3896) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Draft at Maple Shade for the barrel aged beers event. Poured a rather ugly muddy brown that had burgundy edges and a spotty light beige head. Aroma of cherry, wet wood and super old rotting banana. The body was watery with some noticeable acidity, super soft carbonation and a slightly sour finish. Flavor of sour cherry, wood, acidity, earth and some balsamic vinegar on the end. Good stuff but the body thinned out with age.

Jesterdeal (1789) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2013
8-yr old batch at the Barrel & Bug event 2013. Aroma of tart cherry, caramel and a yeasty sourdough. Pours bright hazy red with typical brewpub film. Tast is very tart with underripe cherry, cranberry, and a dusty cellar funk. Nice mouth pucker up front but the finish was a little dusty for my taste. All in all, my favorite sour of the day.

PhillyCraft (3093) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2013
8 year old brew, on tap at Iron Hill Mapleshade for their "Bourbon and Bugs" event. Red pour with light head/lace. Notes of sour funk, wood, caramel, cherry and cranberry. Pretty well balanced and the age def helped this one out after reading previous reviews.

This was at the Maple Shade, NJ location @ Barrels, Bourbon, and Bugs Event in March 2013; Commercial description is A deep red, Flemish Brown Ale, starts off malty with a bit of caramel charaacter, Finsihes witha refreshing tartness. My description= cludy amber-brown with thin off-white head; little aroma; flavor is straaight tart sour lemony with nutty oily notes; feels crisp yet rich; finishes dry and tart.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2009
On draft 4/25/09 at P-ville. Pours hazy brown with minimal off-white head. Nose is malty, sour mashy fruit, woody. Taste is woody, raisiny, malty, with some tartness and a definite caramel apple flavor. Not sure what the deal is with this batch that I had, but I kept the menu displaying it in the seasonal list in case a query comes up.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2005
Flat brown, beautiful deep chestnut colored with no head. Nutty chocolate and cherries nose, earthy more than woody, nicely toasted malts taste good, but feel a bit out of place. Very fruity, figgy, plummy and apple-like. Rather subdued taste, faint candyish sweetness, licorice stick and light watery palate, a bit sticky and almost flat.. too bad.

willblake (2645) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2005
07.16.05 Tap at BCTC. Cloudy brown, little head. Brown sugar, caramel apple, super sweet nose. Flat. Lots of sugar in flavor (brown sugar). Dominated by sugars, not a hint of sour. Prunes and dates.

CapFlu (4461) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2005
(Draught) Sampled at the Belgium Comes To Cooperstown 2005 in Cooperstown, NY. Pours a cloudy, reddish body with a dissipated white head. Smell of toasted pop tarts and fig newtons. Flavour of a thin watery, fig juice. Good.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2005
BCTC. Kind of a let down after their great lambic. This is more like an old-ale than a flemish sour. Brown sugar & butterscotch nose. Those smells continue into the flavor and mingle with a bit of fruitiness. Oakey slightly cherry finish.
