Eerst even gekeken wat voor soort bier dit was en dan kun je de verrassing toch beter waarderen. Zurig ik moest toch denken aan de krieken.

This beer pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. The aroma is malty sour, the flavor is the same although not overly sour. Not really a fan of the sours but this one was pretty decent. Cheers!

Bottle, Belgian Belly, Chorlton. Poured a clear true golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma was intensely woody mixed with sour green apple. Flavour had obvious evidence of the oak barrel aging. Wasn’t overtly sour and struck a good balance between the woodiness and the fruit. Definite cider parallels. Finish was sour if a little short.

Wow, this is one intense beer! Anyone that says Americans have the market cornered on over-the-top, tongue-numbing beers obviously hasn't had this one. I'm really not sure if I like it or not. Luckily I have another six to find out. Straw color. Crystal clear. Long-lasting white head. Excellent aroma. Some barnyard. Winey. Very acidic flavor. Extremely sour. Light-to-medium body. Fairly effervescent. I hate to say it but my first impression was that of regurgitated stomach acid. Yowza! Re-rates sure to follow...

Tiny 8.4 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with some ruby red highlights. Thin, quickly fading off white head. Not a very strong aroma, faint toffee notes. Sour but smooth flavor. Has some raspberry notes. The two years of aging really mellow this one out - had the Oud Bruin on tap last week, very sour. Goes down very smooth, good for late night sipping.

Bottle. Super sour aromas; very lambic-like with lime zest and a hint of tobacco. Some oakiness. Light bodied, nice sour taste with lots of lemons in the aftertaste.

i think i am starting to develop a taste for sour beer, good for me. apple aroma accompanied with an acidic mouthfeel. very tasty.

gold color with a medium sized, white head. a crisp sparkling white wine, and pear aroma. WAY more sour than the bruin. white grape dominates this one. although i enjoyed the cherry flavor of the bruin more this is a far better example of a sour.

Bottle at GBBF, August 2006. Day 1, bee #23. Straw colour. Farmyard aroma. Quite sour and very lemony. Rather lambic-like in overall demeanour. However, I detected some odd chemical petrol/acetone and odd candy/pear drop nuances that I did not find too appealing in the flavour. I also found rather compromised by an over-fizzy mouthfeel. Interesting but not as good as I expected. I suspect this particular bottle (or batch?) was not quite up to the mark.
