grease (42) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 25, 2006
Not as intensely sour as Rodenbach Grand Cru, nor as malty. Still, nice tart-sour character representative of the style. Interesting complexity from oak. Hints of hop esters in the background.

vyvvy (3978) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 25, 2006
This was an enjoyable one. Pours pale orange with a frothy white head. The aroma has a lot of things going on - spicy, peppery, woody, melons, lemon, barnyard, wild yeast, spicy hops and more. Medium body that is very crisp with some mild sharp carbonation. The taste has the myriad of flavors from the aroma, but it is quite a bit smoother than I expected, yet it has a crisp sharp finish. The finish has lots of sharp spiciness. Excellent flemish sour that is very dry, yet fully refreshing.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2006
Bottled. Golden coloured with a small head. Fruity with notes of vinegar, balsamico, berries and maybe a weak hint of apples. Pretty well balanced.

3fourths (8020) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2006
Very slight murkiness in a golden soft yellow body, possibly from chill haze, though Iím sure thereís some yeast that was poured. Teeming with scents of honey, vinegar, light acetone (not in a bad way), sweet apples and a bit of a garlic-vinegar brine. The sweet scents are most present, with red apples and honey the most dominant smells. Bright, vibrant, spritzy on the tongue, very active and bubbly. Doesnít taste like much up front, but on the middle and back, with a cola-like bubbliness, thereís some light apples, light honey, some dough and some pine. Finishes a little empty, minerally as well. Not one of the best FSAís Iíve had, but still delicious. Reminds me of champagne. The levity on the back is killer.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Re rate 7/18 What a difference a few months make! Great flavorful Flemish.Aroma of sour fruits and vinegar. Pour was a cloudy orange with no head. Taste was a beautiful mix of sour cherries, oak and some vanilla. Nice and mouth puckering. The oak agedness in this beer is not overpowering and doesnít define it. It adds character. Outstanding! ___________________________ rating: Aroma-5 Appearance-3 Flavor-6 Palate-3 Overall-10 Total:2.7 First (and probably last) flemish sour ale Iíve tasted. While it is not unbearable, this is just too sour. It poured a hazy golden color with a huge white-ish head that stays on the glass the whole way through. The taste is of sour fruits and vinegar which as I drink I like more and more. If Sour Patch Kids made a beer this would be it.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2006
Bottle. Hazy amber with a small foamy white head and sticky, delicate lacing on the glass. Aroma is sour fruits, light wood, soft vinegar, and light sweet maltiness. Overall itís pretty much sweet-sour fruits in wood. Taste is more tart fruit notes, light damp wood, and soft vinegar. Bit of earthiness in there as well. Body is bubbly and sharp with a light-medium feel. Finishes with more sour fruits, wet wood, light vinegar and some earth notes. Not bad!

MPA (796) - Amager (form. NÝrrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - DEC 1, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2008 Bottle. Golden with vague white head. Sour and fresh aroma with fruit and a moist feeling to it. Flavour is sour, prickling, fresh and sweet with a smooth bitterness. Also apples and cherries. 6-2-5-3-11 (2.7) Re-rate, 22nd of march 2008: BB 18/10 2007. Clear golden with ok off white head. Some apple in aroma and a woody character. Flavour has a more balanced feel to it than last rating.

I generally donít like these super sour fruity beers, but this one is more bearable. The sourness doesnt overwhelm as much as others do. While I canít say I am crazy about it, I donít mind drinking it.
