Aroma is very sour with hints of wood, sour cherries and faint floral notes. Slightly cloudy yellow/gold color with a fast fading pale white head. Fore is woody and sour..slighty thin. Hints of rosehips, herbs and other floral flavors. There are also crisp sour apple notes with a bit of acidic citrus tang in the finish. Pretty nice and lighter and crisper than most I have had of this style.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2006 Hazy gold. Frothy, off white head. Sour? Looking at the bottle I was expecting something totally different. Sour, pungent aroma of grass resin, yeast, and something herbal, subtle wood. Same flavor. Medium body, well carbonated, dry finish. Strong aftertaste of same flavors. Excellent. Like a mild gueze.

Poured a dark yet relatively clear orange color with a decent amount of fizzy white head. Aroma is tart and alcoholy. Flavor is very tart with also a sour apple flavor and a warming alcohol undertone. Overall, not bad, but not a great brew either.

Lubiere (10094) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2006
Tasted at Belgium Comes to Cooperstown, July 16, 2005. Golden ale with a big bubbled white head. Light lemon sour aroma with light barnyard notes. Sour puckering acid with lemon juice, and good effervescence.

slightly opaque golden color with a medium off white head. Sour, yeasty aroma with some alcohol creeping in. Flavor is sour throughout, but only moderately so. finish is dry and somewhat bitter. seems to be a more mild example of a flemish sour ale.

Bottle, thanks Chris! Pours dirty golden with a small white head. Aroma of dried flowers, vinegar, slight barnyard, slight butterscotch. Flavorful! Mmm... Slight butterscotch again, with a very nice sour apple finish... tiny hints of a vinegar in there- but not a disturbing amount. I enjoy this one quite a bit... Id have to be in the mood to drink it- but Im sure Ill revisit this one in the near future.

Dark Mandarin Coloring with White Head. Gueze Characteristics...Bittersweet with a Dry Aftertaste. Not as Bitter as Most Sours..Nice Beer to Sip and Enjoy.

Typical Belgium fermation of fruit I have known to detect in Belgium beer. Has a sour nose also. Cloudy yellow body with white head. Sour flavor is robust at first. Sourness subsides as the beer warms and makes a good sipping beer. Mild sour palate. Purchased by my wife as an early Christmas present. Six different Petrus beers in this gift pack.

Amber color with thin head. Odd color for a Femish Sour. Sour cherry aroma. Dry wheat is the primary flavor that smacks you in the face. The sour cherry fades away fast. Not much malt. Seems kind of weak.
