Last of my gift pack. Man 20 bucks for six good beers. Musty sour aroma. Dark red body witha head that disipated faily quick. Flavor is sour with a cherry flavor as well. Medium sour palate. Decent beer.

Ughsmash (7223) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Bottle. Poured a clear, medium ruby with a rather short-lived beige head. I really enjoyed the aroma coming out of this... sour cherries, vinous notes, oak, and a little metal. Flavor didn’t have as much appeal... the same components were in there as the aroma, but flavors were rather muddled, most of the sourness seemed metallic, and it could’ve used a bit more carbonation. Finish was somewhat sticky with oak and sour berries. Decent for the style... but not any more.

A very transparent, copper/mahogany with a quickish tan head. Plenty of funk in the aroma, vinous with sour cherry and a hint of oak. Mild, bittersweet and musty flavor (on the dry side) to start, but then the yeasts emerge in an explosively sour finish. Astringence abounds with acidity and prickly effervescence. Not sure why, but I feel rather perverted as I may be starting to enjoy this style.

Huge foamy head,, different label ? Red color. Nose was woody and . Oh GOD, This is a sour freakin’ brew. Why oh god why? This could make me stop drinking. Even mouth fulls of salsa can’t was the rotten milk taste from my mouth. I usually research the brews before I sample, not this time.

Dorqui (2115) - Brescia, ITALY - DEC 8, 2005
Creamy and much supporter foam, good persistence. Brownish red color, much loaded and hazy, impenetrable. Fresh acidulous scent, notes of wine cellar and red yield. Extremely pungent and lively taste. Not much round in the mouth, better to the nose. Notes of cherry and sour black cherry, not too much sour like other Rodenbach type. Medium end.

blankboy (6359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2005
Bottle. Pours a clear bubbly dark reddish-brown with a small diminishing light-brown head. The slightly sour and woodsy aroma of malt, fruit, spices and alcohol was not much to my liking. The flavour follows the aroma and is also quite sour but not in a good way, there’s something "off" about the sour taste -- I found myself wondering if I had a bad bottle but then I remembered it was like this last time I tried it as well. Mouthfeel was thin. Flemish Sour Ales are not my favourite kind of beer to start with but there are so many better ones than this one, I think my rating is fair as this beer is mediocre at best.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2005
An almost headless chestnut body gave off a strong aroma of sou/tart cherries and hints of oak. Pronounced carbonation. Medium bodied. The flavor was very sour, biting.
