Ommegang fest. Nice brown ale with a thick off-white head. Light caramel taste with lactic notes. Sour brown sugar . Light bodied but balanced.

On tap at Wilmington as part of their Belgian Beer Fest (brewed at the West Chester location). Almost didn’t get a chance to try this one. They were having problems tapping this one. On my way out, some one said it was ready, so I grabbed one. My glass looked a lot different than desurfer’s glass (they were probably poured 5 minutes apart). Poured a dark brown color with a small off white head. Aromas of leather, wood, and smoke. Tastes of stronger wood. Thinner body.

DocLock (7876) - 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 (6131) - 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.

egajdzis (5341) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2005 Poured a brownish red color with a small off white head and nice lacing on the glass. Musty cobwebs, mildy fruity, and a sweet malt aroma. Taste was subtle cherry, lots of sweet malts, and vanilla oak. All these were pronounced at room temperature. Overall I like a Flemish sour to be alot more sour.

CapFlu (4538) - 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.

dmac (4045) - 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.

PhillyCraft (3257) - 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.

willblake (2653) - 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.

Shag (2609) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2005
This flemish was really not up to speed. A sweet cherry flavor with a hint of grape. A brown apperance with almost no head. They said they were having issues with the keg? I dont know. It was ok I guess.
