Travlr (10574) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 15, 2011
Draft, tasted side by side with Kelso Imperial Red and Bockor Bellegems Bruin. This one had the most bitterness, which clashed a bit with the deep sourness at the heart of the beer.

Tmoney99 (10551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Snifter draft at Taco Mac in Chattanooga. Dark reddish brown color with moderate off-white head that diminished slowly. Complex citrus and spice aroma. Medium body with smooth texture. Same complex citrus and spice flavor with a moderate sweet finish. Interesting brew.

Koelschtrinker (10475) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 10, 2011
Fruchtiger, saurer Geruch. Das Bier startet direkt Mittel-sauer, alle anderen Aromen werden verdrängt. Das Bier wirkt auch sonst recht langweilig und wässrig. Selbst die erhofften fruchtigen Aromen können nur ab und an im Hintergrund ausgemacht werden. Im Nachgeschmack ist neben einem holzigen Aroma ein an faule Eier erinnerder Geschmack auszumachen. Eins der schlechtesten belgischen Biere bisher. Test vom 9.9.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,3,4,1,12,4 - 4,10

Bottle. Dark brown colour with a beige head. Pleasent roasted malt and yeast aroma. Flavour is roasted malt, yeast, fruitiness. Pleasent

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2007
Pours clear brown with small head. Slightly sweet flavor with some spices. Where is the sourness? Would expect more from a beer like this...

faroeviking (10291) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 25, 2008
Bottle shared with Nosiriwont. Clear deep dark brown colour. Sweet malty sour aroma. The flavour is sweet with dark malts, soft sourness and some spice. Sweet malty sourish finish.

rlgk (10257) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2005
Amber, offwhite head. Aroma from pine and juniperberry, woody, fruitu, malty and with some grapes. Grapefruit is back in the sourish flavor, pine and some juniperberry is found too. Gives a somewhat vinous feeling.

madsberg (10142) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2004
Bottled: Dark red coloured. Has a thin beige head. Aroma is a little bland. Some sourness and a little bit of fruitsweetness. The flavour is bland as well. A little acidic sourness but not as distinct as I prefer in this style. Is quite dry in the end, but dies quickly on the palate. A little disappointing.

bierkoning (10138) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2004
Complex aroma of oak, porto, raisin, cherry, caramel and chewing gum. Sweeet and sour flavor with chewing gum, some oak and grapes. Well made Flemish brown.
