750ml bottle, bottle 77/424 poured in a sniffer. Pours amber with a small fizzy white head that disolves very quickly leaving no lacing. Looking at it through the glass it looks very bubbly, but the body is clear and free from particles. Takeing a smell the aroma is very much of cask wood with a slight maltyness and a sourness. Takeing a taste, it is quite sour, almost sour cherryís. There are bits of molasses and caramel malts in the background, along with a slight earthy and moldy taste. You can tell this is a barrel aged beer. The initial flavor is very sweet with a little acidity, and no bitterness. The finish is moderatly sweet with some light acidity. Then there is the sourness that hangs in the back of your mouth for a while. The body is medium to full with a very creamy texture and soft carbonation. I bought this not knowing what to expect and I was plesently suprised, it was quite enjoyable.

750 ml bottle. Pours a rusty brown orange with a medium beige head. Aroma of oak wood, bread dough, yeast and funk. Taste is a very nice blend of oak wood, funk and yeast. Excellent sour ale. One of the best Ive had to date.

Big thanks to joet for sharing! Very odd cork and cage job on this one. The cork was pushed almost completely into the bottle with no mushroom top and the wire on the cage had been twisted about thirty times. No worries though as it didnít affect the beer at all. Slight pop as we removed the cork. Nice head in the glass. Great color--almost ruby red--and very clear. Nice carbonation. Moderate vanilla aroma and a touch of bourbon in the nose. Slight hint of sourness in the aroma as well. Fairly fruity. Sweet caramel flavor with low-to-moderate underlying sourness. Possibly a touch of oak flavor. Good mouthfeel. Creamy. A very unique beer.

750mL bottle, #181/424. Poured very deep garnety-brown with a nice cap of toasted beige head. The aroma picked up sour cherries, Bretty funk, lactic notes, and oak over warmer fruity sugars.. this was very good. The flavor found sour cherries, oak, and a bit of Balsamic vinegar over pale and fruity malts.. sour, spicy, and a bit refreshing on the finish. Medium-bodied and engaging on the palate.. this was way better than expected.

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

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.

Bottle at the RBSG grand tasting on 6/23/07: Pours a transparent dark copper bronze with a frothy, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of toasty sweet caramel malt with a hint of faint cherry tartness and bourbon oak. Body starts fairly full and caramely malty sweet with a big tart cherry balance before a slightly thinner, bittersweet tart lightly oaky finish. A nice, complex beer.

RBSG 2007. A big thanks to whoever brought this one! And sorry I ended up rating it before you... Copper color with a thick head. Sweet malt aroma and very sugary cherries. Cherries fade back in the flavor, but are still there a bit. Slightly soured malt. Not bad at all. Nowhere near as screaming sour as many Lambics, but definitely enough to say hello.

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.

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.
