Lubiere (10636) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2006
Tasted at Belgium Comes to Cooperstown, July 16, 2005. Golden ale with a big bubbled white head. Light lemon sour aroma with light barnyard notes. Sour puckering acid with lemon juice, and good effervescence.

Bottle. A hazed dark golden color with a whilte head. I had no idea that this was going to be a flemish sour ale. The beauty of the style comes through in the aroma with a tart, sour cherry flavor and aroma.

Dorwart (2409) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Thin frothy white head of fine bubbles. Sweet oaky aroma with some stinky feet, white grapes and tart apples. Color is a medium golden apple juice. Dry acidic and tart. Fizzy in the mouth and makes the salivation glands kick into high gear. More tart apples and white grape. Little oak. Very dry and puckering finish with a little lingering sweetness. A decent flemish sour ale. Although these are not really my style.

Golden, clear, the aroma preannunces its taste, quite sour but not in an extreme way. Medium body and not a long finish; quite good and drinkable, not as "explosive" as I expected.

Aurelius (4505) - 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.

Not a pale ale thats for sure Aroma is sour and barn with some leather saddle. Sour throughtout with a hay and straw flavour. Finishes sour with some cherry.

Trev (1968) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Very interesting, reminded me of a grand cru or sour ale really. Poured a medium gold with a thin bubbly white head. Aroma was under-ripe apricot, buttery, Some sour alc. as well. Flavour was intense on the front of the palate with sharp tartness. Middle eased with a bit of malt honey sweetness, then a sour finish that was a bit thin.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2007
An interestingn brew with flavors reminiscent of loquat or kumquat. Almost taste olives too. Dry, sour, and salty. Unique and I’d certainly enjoy another.

Tranquillity (1433) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2008
Bottled. Hazy yellow, long-lasting white head. Taste very sour, grapefruit maybe. Damped aroma. Very enjoyable beer, hard to put into words. Then again, I love all flamish.sour ales.
