DrnkMcDermott (2990) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2007
375 ml bottle. Brown color slightly different than any other beer. No foam. Smells like a nice dry sherry. Taste is very dry, and can be intimidating. Sour as a Jolly Rancher, yet low on specific fruit notes, until a bit of cherry comes in further down. Some good oak notes, too. Great taste, even with a slightly watery mouthfeel.

[200-20070201] 375mL. Raisin currant sweet aroma, medium alcohol and a little wine. Cloudy, red brown body. Tastes like sweet currants and a little perfume, has barley characteristics and noticeable alcohol. Medium body, nice smoothness. Overall good togetherness, a little barleywine-esque. (Happy Anniversary, Mabels.)

adrian910ss (2561) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2007
375 ml 2005 bottle. Pours a murky sandy brown color with a small white head. Unfiltered, with lots of tiny hops floating around. Aroma is winelike-lots of sour fruits present. Pears,berries,sour apples and vinegar. Taste is dominated by sweet and sour fruit,vinegar and light brown sugar. Not bad for this style.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2007
Bottled. Very very dark red (almost black) with nice curtains. Theis’ bike glue again - sour/sweet with notes of berries, syrup and spices. Pretty good but a bit too onesided and sweet.

Light pear cherry minty aroma,you can smell the tartness in there,aroma takes on a cherry sucker flavor, in the taste you get the tartness and sourness you expect, sour cherry skins and vanilla dominating, flavor disappears very quickly and leaves you with only the sour bacteria on your tongue a wonderful early evening taster

Grovlam (4203) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 Bottle. Head small creamy and off-white like which quickly diminished. Fair lacing to be found. Light cloudy particles and a golden brown colour. Aroma was sweat, barnyard, graph, apple, vinegar. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Flavour was light sweet and moderated acidic. Nice fresh finish that that had hints of acidic fruit and light tart metallic.

SteC (140) - Oostende, BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2007
This Flemish sour ale is in my opinion not the best in its kind. It has a beautifully dark red body, with a nice white pearly head. It tasted the typical sourness, but I missed a bit the finish, which was too empty for a flemish sour ale.
