Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours a honey orange body with an off white head. Tart balsamic vinegar and wild yeast. Chewy cherry pit and skin with a light citrus accent. Sour chewy fruit, this is delicious and less acidic than la folie.

Shared by Rciesla. This reminds me a little of a better version of La Folie. Very good. Excellant flavor. Nice aroma. Nice Flanders Red.

JK (4293) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Very nice, acidic aroma. In the Flanders Red style. Tons of yeast in this beer, both in the aroma and flavor. Cloudy, dark orange color. Fruit, some balsamic, and very good, sour flavor. Comparable to La Folie for sourness.

BrewDad (4632) - Olympia, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Pint – Bottleworks – Seattle, WA
Aroma: Big sour aroma with lots of Belgian yeast.
Appearance: Light amber in color, clear with a thin head.
Flavor: SOUR holy cow Batman this was sour. A huge beer that in time is going to settle down and become a true classic.
Palate: Dry Sweet Sour finish, with a Good Mouthfeel.
Overall: This was truly the most sour beer I have ever had in my life. It was also very drinkable just an awesome brew. To the Matt’s here to another 10.

3fourths (7801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Draft pour @ Brouwer’s Sour Fest 2009. Cloud dark copper brown body, somewhat muddy/dirty in appearance. Full on acetic nose, the Love character is so easily evident, the woody/nutty apple cider vinegar acetic acid, wonderful aroma. Salty, peppery, spicy, acetic. Bready, muddy, frothy, soft carbonation. Finishes prickly and spritzy. Seems like a dirtier version of La Folie/Love. Good but not great.

Gregis (1279) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Bottle generously shared by theisti. Pours a cloudy amber-orange with a thin off-white head. The nose is a subtle vinegar-sour fruitiness with a faint candy sugar supporting note. Light to medium-bodied and slick with a tart/sour finish. The flavor is a tart, sour, fruity vinegar, but I find it much subtler in its presentation than many other sours. I really enjoyed trying this one. Thanks again, Tim.

travita (3705) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Bottle thanks to AmEricanbrew. The smell is tar, fruits, yeast, sour, and funky. the look is amber in color with a decent foamy head. The taste is tart, fruits, tasty.

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Sample from 750mL bottle at Lost Abbey. Wow. What an excellent beer. I’m really enjoying this new generation of 6%ish sours. By far my favorite beer of the nights. Fairly high lactic sourness, Huge fluffy head, which was suprizingly wonderful, though I think this beer would be excellent flat. Yellow color. Not so much like La Folie,, except for the fact that it they are both sour and excellent. More along the lines of Deviation, Veritas 004, etc.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 9, 2009
[Bottle] shared by Skyview. Pours a glowing gold with a soapy white ring of foam. Aroma is super funky, lots of cow manure, some lactic acid, and wheat malt. Flavor is really tart, nice brett character, gritty, and some apple skins.
