3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2007 Coming back to these beers after a few years. Pours crystal clear golden with a large head that sticks around. Aroma is what I like, Flanders sour - medium strength. The problem is itís just thats and not backed up by anything else. I like it but man, throw in some malt sweetness. Some sour lemon in the "lager sitting out too long" kind of way. Just souring a regular old blonde ale.
11.2oz, Lindener Spezial smaller stem glass.

Light gold, thin head, aroma did not entice me. Thin bodied, the tart fruitiness overwhelms a light spice attempt... just much to sour for my taste, could not finish.

Tangy aroma, sourish, some woody notes. Golden body, with a small white head. Very fruity flavor, sour and tangy. Very good sour ale!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Almost fully golden, aparently filtered with a small compact head. Smells sour, tastes sour and due to the light color, I was easily led to believe that this is a gueuze. But it is in fact a "Flemmish red ale" along the lines of Rodenbach, which is brewed on pale malts - very unusual. Apparently brewed solely for the American market, but I donít really remember where I got it. 141004

Pours clear golden with a well retained off white colored head. Very clear, which caught me a bit off guard. Aroma is moderately sour and fruity, apples and pears. Flavor is more sour than the aroma let on, but not overly so. Extremely refreshing and the finish is very fruity. Bon boisson!!

Wow is this beer sour. I have nothing else like it save for Lindeman’s Geuze Lambic Cuvee Rene. It’s a real trip. I love trying new things but this is something else entirely. Definitely give it a try for a shocking experience.

Label has a "2003" on it. Poured a medium, lightly cloudy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of apples, oak, and a little earthy. Tastes of tart green apples and grass. Alcohol content well hidden.
