KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Golden color with a huge head. Smell of sour white grapes, oak, some hops and malt, dirt, lemons and spice. Taste of sour fruit, bubble gum, tartness, rust, oak/wood, hops and a very sweet/tart bitter aftertaste. I am starting to enjoy these Flemish sour ales!

The beer looks like a very light honey color with a thin white head on my pour. The nose was nice citrusy sour that had a uniquness I canít describe. Perhaps the oak? The body had a wonderfuly sour apple flaovr too it.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy pissy golden lager color, with a huge rigid white head. Great lacing and head retention. Nose is that of a slightly sour brown sugar, as well as some acidic citrusy tang. Wow what an explosion of flavor. There is a slight hint of bubblrgum sweetness accentuated by a powerful sour edge. I love the balance on this beer, and will continue to return.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2007
A downright ugly pour. Dull yellow or dirty brass, thin head, slight leggy lace. Old urine nose. Sharp acidity, sour green apples, dry sherry, woody but more beech than oak. Some metallic notes and nutmeg-like sharpness. Not a lot of depth, as some other sour beers Iíve tried. Thin overall. I find their "Commercial Description" rather telling.

Aurelius (3903) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2007
A tart, biotic, sweet fruit jam aroma. Fair label, cloudy oak beer with a thin lacing head. Sour and lambic-like. Indistinct sour fruits - sloes, plums, unripe cherries -- in the flavor profile. Not very sweet, not very bitter. Surprisingly easy to drink, given the sourness of the beer. Finishes out quickly, with a very muted sourness. For the style, I really liked it.

altonbrownd (4610) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2007
Bottle at home. Huge head. Very sour indeed. Very citrusy and seriously tart. Not sure why this only available in US. They sell it in normal liquor stores here in Amsterdam. Flippant, bubblegum finish. Questionable.

alexanderj (3266) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Huge head; light orange-yellow color; a little bit hazy, but not much. Aroma was sour apples and yeast. Not a big fan of the style, but this is probably one i would enjoy the most. Flavor was sour apple, but not hugely sour which made it more drinkable. Didnít pick up much on any oak. About average for me.

jimhilt (2377) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Pours a three finger white head that fades to a ring leaving a good lace. Pale, cloudy amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Sour apple nose. Flavor is sour apples from start to finish, hops and malts stay hidden. True to Flemish sour ale style, drinkable but not my favorite. $4.90 for a 330ml bottle from Liquid Solutions Tigard, Or.

lovely beer, reminds me of a slightly sweet Cantalion. very well balanced, nice tartness, some fruitiness, very refreshing. good summer beer
