Dark brown color with a thick beige head. Laces evenly. Slightly sour nose with some toffee aromas as well. Taste similar -- mildly sour with toffee and caramelized sugar. Medium body. I like it and would recommend this beer to someone who is just getting into sour ales.

Medium bodied, Belgian Ale with a blend of caramel, toffee, vanilla and light sweetness. I liked this recipe, just not sure if its a knock-off or a stand alone recipe.

Pours a cola color with a creamy, tan head. The aroma could fill a room with its sour, barrel-aged, vinous quality complemented by bourbon, slight fusel and vinegar. Has a remotely tart flavor dominated by unpleasantly stale vinegar. A reasonable caramel malt backbone is detectable. No date on bottle. Sticky, sweet, and disgusting. Not recommended.

Pours a deep reddish brown with a thick, pillowy, light tan head. Smells almost a bit sour! Sweet malts and ripe dark fruits, with quite a strong cherry note and a bit of oak. Flavor didn’t quite pull through - it was a little too sweet. This would have been fantastic if that sour note from the aroma had come through - but it didn’t. It’s brown sugar, ripe fruits, still some cherry... but I wish it had more to it. Great dessert option, though - this has a wonderfully smooth, creamy (yet slightly sparkly) mouthfeel.

This just didn’t hit me right. It might have actually been an old bottle; I should definitely try it again. The aroma was excellent and it poured a nice reddish brown with a rocky tan head. The flavor was sour (and not in a good way) and the palate was really like cola. Sour cola, hmmm....

Bottle. Pours a mahogany body with a tan head. Sweet malt, light fruity esters, light woodiness and brown sugar. Not bad.

Sweet caramel malt aroma. This is way too sweet for me, especially right up front. Has a bit of caramel, but it is just dominated by the sugar, making it tough to drink. Flavor is okay when I can get it down.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 23, 2008
Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a creamy tan head that left good lace. Sweet aroma of fruits, caramel, and a slight musty and wood background. Nice fruit and malt mix in the flavor. Medium to full body and sweet throughout.

Good beer! Poured wth a nice, big tan head, no lace. Head mostly subsides. Color is a dark brownish amber. Aroma is yeasty, malty, a hint fruity, and sour. Flavor is about the same but also a hint of caramel. Interesting relationship between flavors. Body was a hair thin, but not bad. Decent carbonation. Satisfying. Session beer. Clean.

Brewed in Belgium !!! Pours a brown / burgundy color with a smalll foamy off-white head. Super sweet aroma, raisins, brown sugar, caramel, and plums. Taste is of dark fruits, figs, and malts. The mouthfeel is very spitzy at first and becomes sweet with a hint of dryness at the finish. Pretty interesting stuff.... :)
