3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a roasted brown. Small tan head with some decent lacing. Initial nose was strong vegetal, like cooked squash and light cherries. The more smelled the more I decided on tomato soup. I agree with my bud KAggie that the taste just jumps at you compared to the nose. Brown sugar syrup mixed with lightly cooked cherries is dead on. I do have this strange sugary film left on my tongue that Iím not used to, but it makes me act like when my dog eats peanut butter...so cool by me. Full bodied and damn tasty.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours solid-brown and mahongany with bits of cherry-colored yeast freely floating amongst the libation. Weak pumpkin and strawberry greet the olfactory almost immediately-- a sign of things to come, perhaps? Flavor is an almost 180 degree turn, lending notes of cedar-soaked cherry and hints of brown sugar. Hints of cider in the finish leave a tingly film on the tongue. Nice and full mouthfeel that leaves a thick coating of flavor on the palate. Great beer; unusually sweet, but very balanced.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted 9/11/06 at Delirium Cafe, Brussels. An old school favorite, did you know it cures anthrax? Well thatís the rumor anyway. Murky brown in color with that wonderful sweet sour aroma. Either itís gotten sweeter since I last had it or my taste buds have gone south like paris hiltonís respectability. Still a very good beer, just didnít wow me like it used to.

Portion from a magnum courtesy boboski. Ruby-brown with loose soapy head. Slightly sharp aroma but pretty mild for a Flemish sour. Taste is mildly sweet, with apple and oak notes. Finish very dry. A bit undercarbonated for my taste, but good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light caramel brown with a very effervescent bubbly white head. The bubbles seem to stick to the side of the glass. Smells of sour apple or cherries, pretty sweet and a little syrupy. The taste is slightly sour, with big citrus fruit, mostly apples. Quite flavorful. The sourness is more of a mild sourness, a little funky but still very good.
