Golden color, small white head. Very sour nose. Sour, same time sweet flavor. Crisp carbonation. Very balanced and excellent for this style.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2005
Bottle RBESG. Sour aroma. Yellow color. Sour, sour flavor. Numbing. I’ll rerate this if I ever get into the sour stuff.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Pours hazy orange golden and a thin snow white head. Vinous vinegar aroma with woody tones and a sweet candied fruity middle. Tart geuze-like flavor but with a more hoppy/fruity note. Acidid and woody and very vinous, almost like an unripe white wine. Very interesting, but doesn’t have the complexity of the dark flemish sour ales that I adore.

joergen (22213) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2005
Bottled. Clear yellow coloured with a white head. Acidic aroma of wood with notes of barnyard. Acidic flavour of woods with fruity notes. Looks and tastes like a gueuze.

jefcon (1451) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Sour orange and citrusy wine aromas. Nearly a half inch of white head gives way to lacing on this golden clear beer. Big flavors follow big aromas, with a souring lemon-pine green apple flavors. Not too tart compared to Rodenbach and Duchesse, so very drinkable and neutral in body. A good sipper with much to recommend it.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Wow! This only gets a 3.68? Huge sour/tart aroma makes your lips pucker without a taste. Great sour/tart lemon flavor, has a little mustiness to it. Finish leaves you begging for more. Perfect hot summer day beer.

Pailhead (5331) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Bottle: Excellent aroma. Loaded with sour and tart fruit (lemon and light cherry) and lightly vinuous. Pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a ring. Very lambic-like only with more carbonation. Very sour and tart (lemony and some sour apple) with a some acidity and woodiness in the finish. Had absolutely no idea this was a Flemish Sour when I bought this. What a great suprise!

beastiefan2k (2689) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2005
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 it’s 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.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JUN 7, 2005
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.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Tangy aroma, sourish, some woody notes. Golden body, with a small white head. Very fruity flavor, sour and tangy. Very good sour ale!
