3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy amber colour. Aroma is sour-ish, slightly bretty. palate is soft, with some light citrus, and woody sournness. Slight wine-like palate. Not intensly sour at all, but very leasant it has to be said. I think i prefer the more sour version, but this isn’t bad by any means.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber body, full of particles, white creamy head, thick lacing; Only a very, very little sour: wood, apples, orange, unclear; Medium sized big bubbled carbonation, more harsh then sour; Medium sized finish where the carbonation prickles a little, strange wooden and harsh malty aromas. This beer is VERY unclear and I havent got a clue what it wants to be. I guess it is the least sour, sour beer I have ever had. Damn, so far from the US-Version.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled at RBESG2006 - Thx KnutAlbert. Hazy, yellow-orange ale with a dense, beige head. Yeasty and quite citric aroma with apples. Much less sweetness than the mild version, with citrus, fruits and apples. Well carbonated, tart mouthfeel, quite palate-cleansing. Long sour finish with some alcohol. Really, really nice. (060825)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at LCRBM 2, Kulminator, Antwerp, Belgium
Orange, hazy body. Off-white head with a good lace. Woody aromas. Moderately sour, lightly bitter flavour. Not as good as the US sour version. Why does he think we don’t like extreme sour beers in Europe? We ’invented’ the lambic, didn’t we?

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2006 LCRBM2: Woody aroma with just a touch of cherry. Oak dominates the flavor, but I can also sense cherry esters. A soft sourness, but there is a lot of character in this beer. Needs a re-rate, because of the numerous beers tasted before this one.
Well here’s th re-rate. Last bottle available in Amsterdam. Orange color, cloudy. Gusher. Yeast, cherries and iron in the aroma, like an old-fashioned Flemish red. Yeasty, sourish flavor with mustard, raspberry, iron and some yeasty bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel. Oak in the finish I prefer the aroma to the flavor in this beer, the iron character is a bit too pronounced. The total score remains the same.

Bottle: RBESG 2006: Thanks to Knut Albert.
Shady orange color, creamy cream colored head. A bit sour scent, also sweet and some spices. Mild taste at first that quickly develop into a sour flavor that dominates the mouth for a few seconds. Rather high CO2 level. Spritzy body. Very low bitterness, though it lingers behind the sour taste.

Murky yellow colour. Big aroma - herbs, cheese, berries, almond paste, but not very sour. Lively mouthfeel with notes of light fruity apple cake but not as complex as the mild. No wood here.
