pivo (2556) - GERMANY - OCT 29, 2005
Sour, dark applie cider nose with a weak wood character. Dark brown color with a beige foamy head. Raisiny malt, syrup and alight tart end. Medium body. Pretty good overall, but not so complex.

kramer (4894) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2005
25 cl bottle. Pours a dark brown with a finger sized off white head that settled to a thin film. Aroma of malt, muscat grapes, slightly sweet and sour at the same time. Flavor is just slightly acidic with syrupy malt, grapes, and a dry soy sauce finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slightly cloying finish and soft carbonation. Overall this may not be one of the top beers in the style but it is incredibly drinkable.

YogiBeera (2464) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Nice dark brown color with a small off white head. Sugar syrup nose - with some vinegar. Medium sourness, malty and molasses in the taste too - Ok.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2007 No#68. (2002). This was one of those beers that i could just drink for days. Aroma comes off sourish, yet still a little sweetness and fresh also. Taste is sweetish for the style, still a bit sour. Maltiness comes in too, and an unexpected warming from it, with it only being 5% ? I want this again and a few bottles at that to keep me going. RERATE: Same score, alround a really nice sour yet balanced session ale, that id love to sit an have pints of.

pivnizub (8764) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2005
Bottle: Dark brown coloured with an mid-sized brownish head; fruity, sourish nose with a tinge of caramel, also: balsamico, port; initial sweet-sour fruity taste, mild sweetish flavour; gentle fruity-sourish finish with a touch of "barrique" and some "iron" (?). Not so complex as the "Goudenband", but very pleasant and going down well. Moreish !

TBone (12538) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2005
Bottled 25cl (BBE 03/2007)
Different (brown-blue) label.
Ruby red, small mostly vanishing tanned head. Quite typical FSA nose: sour (vinegar, balsamico) and sugary. Carbonated, a bit sweet, finishing sourish, oily aftertaste. Quite good example of this style, so if you want your first Flemish Sour Ale, this is easy one to start.

Sten (625) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2005
A cola-coloured (brown-black) beer with a small pale brown head. A very complex taste, a bit malty and sweet but the nice sourish taste is overwelming. A very good sour ale. (Bottle 25cl)

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2005
Dark brown with some amber, with a small head. Aroma of acidic grapes and wine, with obvious alcohol. Sour biting taste, with a long sour finish

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Dark brown with a reddish hue, and a nice light-brown head. Tart, fresh nose. Medium body with wooden, vinous notes. Some sourness in the finish. Crisp and very quenching. 200895

MiP (13573) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2005
Draught. Dark brown colour, red hue. Big creamy, light brown head, quite stable. Aroma of acidic berries. Very sweet, acidic flavour. Some berry/raisin/grape notes. Aftertaste has a very tiny hint of sheery/prune. I am not a fan of oud bruin, but I think I would prefer it less sweet than this.
