JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Courtesy hopscotch, I think. Dark brown color with a thin soapy white head. Butterscotch/candy corn aroma, malty undertones. A bit of an odd mild funk aroma is present as well. Taste is not really like a pure lactic sour, but more akin to granny smith apples or lemons. The sourness is not real accomodating, and isnít even as sour as the aroma would indicate. An interesting brew.

Pours a slightly cloudy amber red with a small, bubbly, white head. Wierd aroma, not really sour, a little bit funky, get some bourbon and a unique cheese aroma. Not what I was expecting out of the nose. The taste, however, was totally different from the nose. Definitely has some tartness to it, but I wouldnt call it sour by any means. A little bit fruity, with a good dose of some caramel malts blended in. Really unique flavor character, as opposed to its smell.

Silphium (3177) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2007 Bottle #324/424 and 277/424, split with badnewsbeers. Deep toffee to light cola-colored body, translucent. Thin buff head. Hot aroma with strong, tannic oak and alcohol, toast and a bit of funk/vinegar. Dry, tannic body with buttery, rich oak enhanced by a tart but not sweet fruitiness that is modest but enhances the barrel flavors. In addition, I detected a touch of tobacco and vanilla. Great balance, an elegant simplicity. I too would have liked more sour bite, but thankfully this didnít have the artificial sweetness that I tend to find in many American versions of this style.

hellomynameis (874) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Cloudy reddish color with bit of a head. The aroma is non-remarkable. The flavour isnít very sour at all, a bit of a medley of fruit in there.

JK (4573) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2007
A straightforward, beer, that isnít sour enough. Bright red color, it does look the part. Aroma has some balsamic and sugar, maybe some fruit as well. Flavor is sour, with a little more vinegar, but it simply is not sour enough. Still a very good beer anyway. Dried fruit finish.

badnewsbeers (2313) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2007
exceptional flemish from a pretty so-so brewery...bottle 324/424 shared with silphum...pours clear ruby red with minimal head..aroma of brown sugar, a touch of maple, raison, figs, and a splash of cherry...the flavor profile is encapsulated by a beautiful oak tannin backbone...body is quite bready and lightly sour, with hints of figs and molasses, and a subtle touch of black cherry (not too sweet or tart)...probably the best offering from the brewery and a nice surprise

Nuffield (3711) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Malty aroma--limited depth of sourness apparent in aroma. But in the flavor thereís some great cherry with a rounded sourness. Average appearance (brown). Decent flavor. Thanks RBSG 07!

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2007
RBSG 2007: Poured a deep copper color with a light tan head. Aroma, sweet malty notes, caramel, and a light tartness to it. Flavor, sweet with a light sourness, malty, with a bit of a sour kick on the finish.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Sampled at the RBSG 07 Grand Tasting. Clear amber body with faint head. Malty aroma with sweet cherry tinge. Sweet malty body with a decent amount of sourness - not as much as Iíd hoped for but good nonetheless. Thank you BillVanE for sending me this trade in time for RBSG.
