Pours brown with a medium tan head that stays. Aroma is red fruit, wood, a slight sourness, and a nice rich maltiness. Flavor is mildly tart with dark fruits and wood. The finish is a little bit watery but all and all this is a tasty beer.

Wonderful on so many levels. Sour yet fruity...creamy yet spritzy...warming yet I can see drinking a few to refresh in the summertime.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 This could easily be my favorite SESSION brew if it didn’t cost so much per bottle. Pouring a cloudy brown with a spritzy tan head, this has a mild sour malt aroma. Very soft yet lively in the mouth, it’s got a gentle toffee flavor coupled with juicy dark druits (plums, grapes) and sweet spices. Quite pleasant to drink, it has a slightly sour finish that leaves one salivating for more.

Bottled. Brown color with reddish hues. No head. Surprisingly sour aroma. Malty and tart, raisins and prunes. Vanilla notes. Very "sour-brown" like. Very enjoyable.

Bottle, Criterion, Leicester Crawl Jan 2005. Amber chestnut, good beige head and moderate condition. Pleasant tinny caramel and funky farmyard notes in the nose, sweet caramel in the mouth and more funky lambic type notes in the finish.

I love the Flemish browns. Very refreshing style. Lactic and sour nose with good hints of spice and malt. Nice persistent head with good gas release . Hosrse blanket and citrus acidity.

this is yet another uncharted adventure into the "sour" world.poured a dark red/brown with a nice creamy head.as the head sat down i was met with some nice lacing.nice balanced aroma of brown sugar,malts,and the sour funk.the taste was also very balanced with a mix of fruits,spice,pepper,brown sugar,and candy.this is a very nice change from some of the "sour beers" i have had.im going to get some more of this when i can.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2005 Very different from any beer I’ve ever had. Sour brown ale. Brown bour with a light tan head that laced very well. Underwhelming aroma that’s sour and spicy. Sour flavor with a finish that left my mouth dried out. Very reminiscient of the Devil’s Horn without the raspberry finish.
