ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 24, 2005
Murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma of fermented cherries and prunes. Caramel, fruit, and a woodsy dryness in the flavor. Gueuze-like sourness in the finish.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2005
Mostly transparent red/amber, single finger head, hardly lasting. Aromas of fruit syrup and alcohol. Flavor was of dark berries (rasp, straw, black), slight sourness, but not as sweet as it sounds. Nice mouthfeel, and good looking lacing.

This is 50% a flemish sour ale, and 50% a Belgian Brown, I suppose. It lacks a lot of the contrasting sweet/tartness that I love so much about the Flemish Sour style. Anyway, a pleasant drink nonetheless, with a hint of the Belgian funkiness, and a tad mild.

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 8, 2005
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.

bottle. Nice aroma of fruit and yeast, really nice citrus effect on the palate. sour taste with a medium malt body and hints of yeast. really good...too bad the bottle is so small.

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

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 This could easily be my favorite SESSION brew if it didnít 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, itís 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.
