Bottle. Had this one @ the brewery in 2005 and didnít like it. "Too sour" I thought. Now these sour beers are really growing on me. This oneís so sour that it burns the back of your throat, but not like an alcohol burn. Aroma has a mild hint of ethanol to it. Bitter, sour cherry notes.

draft at the brewery. .. Sour, vineagarey, horse blanket. Complex!. .. Hazy, chestnut brown. .. Fruity - cherry raspberry, sour, intense, sweet-tart. . . medium-light body. Sourness gets in the way. . Itís a flavor adventure!! Interesting blend of berries and sour (almost too much sour? - will be interesting to compare to the bottles in the cellar. Great quote from a server a the brewery " Youíll hate it today, but crave it tomorrow. It kinda gets under your skin"

2006 bottle from Eric (footbalm) Thanks. Pours out a dark brown to red color with a tan head on it. Smell is sour cherry, oak, and spices. Taste is smooth and rich, full of cherries and oak notes. Not an over powering beer like some wood aged beers can be. Very smooth and just damn good. Probably one of the best flemish sour ales I have had. Bottle was digested rather quickly. Great stuff.

2004 tasted a couple months ago. Amber brown. Small off white head. Vinegared cherries, oak, sourness, earth, subtle spice, and a dry finish. A bit past its prime. Smooth, medium palate.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2008 From a 750mL Bottle. Deep caramelly brown coloring with a healthy finger of white head. Outstanding sour aromas of woody, funky oak blends nicely with some chardonnay tannins and a squeeze of fresh lemon. A light fruity wave of juicy apple flesh and under-ripe pear skins compliment the acetic presence nicely, and are even sweetened by just a hint of maple syrup. Hints of vanilla. Light bodied, tingly mouthfeel that brings loads of rich, tart fruit flavors to the palate. Perfectly intensely sour without being excessively vinegary. Dry, yet loads of flavor complexity and a firm body. Iím envisioning a freshly baked apple crisp garnished with a slice of cidery lemon peel. A hint of white pepper spice lingers among the oak, leaving me to smack my lips appreciatively in the final smack. Amazing brew.

Shared at Columbus tasting by moejuck. Pours slightly reddish. Aroma and flavor and sweetarts and sourness. I didnt think something could be more sour than beatification but this is. Leaves a little too much sour on the back of the tongue though. Still pretty good though.

Aroma was very sour with hints of fruits. The pour was a reddish brown with a medium head off white head. Medium palate presented tastes of sour fruits. Plenty of tart in this one--which I love. Not quite as good as I had expected, but a very solid sour.
