this is my first "sour" ale and honestly i was not aware of what i was getting into.anyway,ill try and give it and open minded rating.the petrus poured out with a apple cider look,and smelled just like champagne.the taste was mostly sour with a bit of apple.reminds me of the sour apple cany strips.very different but not to bad.

Pours straw yellow with fluffy white head. Nose is citrusy yet sour with a hint of apples. Flavor is tart, fruity and spicy. Medium body with astringent prickling on tongue. Quick, dry finish.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Lightly hazed golden color with a white moderate head. Small amount of lace. Barnyard yeast, with light cidre, hint of lemon and honey in the aroma. Malt seems to come out a bit more as it warms. Smells much darker than it appears, if that makes any sense to you. Flavors start with dry honey and earthy malt. Mild acid and grapes come through later in the quaff. Mild apples come floating in here and there. Seems a touch metallic, near the end. This is one that needs to be saved for a hot summer night. Thanks Alex.

Clear gold with a creamy white head and strings of lace. Aroma is sour with a nice side of funk. There is almost a hint of pears amongst the large dose of spices. I cannot put my finger on it. The yeast is abundant and there is a grassy and peppery quality on the nose. Wow. That’s tart! Puckers the mouth right up. Strong and bitter citrus with a touch of alcohol. Weird mouthfeel on this one. Tart and dry at first, but then it puckers and my mouth starts to water. Awesome. I really enjoyed this beer.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Aroma is grapefruit, vinegar. Body is a pale orange/yellow, with a bubbly white head. Taste is very nice and sour with grapefruit, salt, and lime. I like this brew!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 12, 2004
This beer pours a clear yellow gold color with moderate carbonation, nice sticky lacing & a small but potent layer of head. Nose of vitamin c, wheat, sweet pomegranate & juicy pears. Light oak properties, starburst tart notes & banana pancakes too. The flavor impacts strong with acidity but the citrus notes really are present. Very tart & full of vinegar. Good nose but a bit off & unbalanced after that. Good though!

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Poured a pale reddishgold color...Aroma was vinous and woody with some sour vinegar...Flavor is delightfully sour/tart with notes of lemons and apples very fruity...Body was a bit thin but very lively due to the carbonation...This beer seemed almost like a toned down gueze very drinkable...Slightly dry and acidic finish

sloth (2454) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Medium sized white head, fair retention and lacing. Clear, pale/copper hued brew. Fruity/citrus, berryish nose with hints of vinegar, light vinous notes also. Light/medium body, prickly on the tongue. Tart, fruity, lightly woody, refreshing, crisp, red apple notes along with a light spiceyness. An interesting, complex brew. Alcohol is well masked. A refreshing beer. Finish is dry, crisp and sharp. Man that,ll wake up the old taste buds! Giddyup!
