lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2006
Bottle. Deep red, brown colour. Dissipating head. Huge aroma, acidic, almost gueuzeish. Marvellous. Cloying palate detracts from a higher score. Still.. this is damn good.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 21, 2006
Light brown coloured, lots of carbonation and an average white head. Nice fruity, sour-hoppy and malty aroma with a sweet-sour (appel) taste. Finish is light sour. A very nice flemish sour ale.

Nice dark color. The aroma was like vinegar. The taste was like vinegar. Vinegar vinegar vinegar (is that 75 characters yet?).

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2006 25 cL, capped bottle (March 2007 on the cap): extremely dark, mahogany with a diminishing thin, strong taupe cream. Rich fruity aroma: blueberries, black cherries, dark juicy raisins, and rhubarb with hints of cinnamon, brown sugar and lightly bitter caramel. Creamy, well carbonated and tingly on the tongue. The flavours are considerably more sweet than acidic or sour and I find myself wishing there was more tartness. Pretty tasty, Thanks for sharing D.

Bottle. Reddish brown colour with a small off-white head. Sweet malty and slightly sour aroma. Sweet malty with slightly sour flavor leaving you with a sweet aftertaste.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2006
Nice, clear, deep red color with a small, bubbly head. Sour-sweet aroma with oak and cherry hints. Oaky, sweet-sour, quite balanced flavor with pear hints. Light to medium-bodied palate with lemonadey carbonation. A quite nice, easy and balanced oud bruin.

Boutip (5950) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2006
Bottle: Poured a dirty brown color ale with a huge off-white foamy head with pretty good retention. Aroma of sugar and tart cherries is quiet interesting. Taste is very refreshing with a well balance sourness covered by some sugar and some oak. Definitely not as great as Rodenbach Grand Cru but very interesting nonetheless and I would love to have access to this as a session ale for those hot summer days.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2006
Clear, blood red with brown streaks and a thin, quickly diminishing tan head. The aroma is fruity, slightly acidic and malty. Cherries, plums, apples, caramel, toasted grains, light oak (is this even finished in barrels?), some residual sweetness and a hint of red meat. The body is moderate, but perhaps a little on the light side. In the mouth, the sweetness starts off the experience, but a bit of light acidity comes out near the end. The sweet fruity flavors are the dominate player here. The acidity is evident but doesn’t do a whole lot and isn’t as sour as I would like. It seems more like a session sour beer and a good one to get people introduced and acclimated to the style. However, in my advanced stages of enjoying sour beers, it wasn’t sour enough. It’s actually tasty and well made, but not something I’d drink all that often. Thanks a lot Martin; it was a treat!

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2006
Dark red-brown colored, little brown head. Sour, spicy, mildly fruity, cherry and sweet aroma. Medium bodied. Sour and sweet flavor with lasting spices and cherries.
