3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy red-brown with large tan head. Aroma of sourdough bread and yeast. Flavor is less complex. Thin malt and a one-dimensional sourness with just a wisp of fruitiness. Ok, but not particularly interesting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear brown with beige head with a nice lacing. Aromas of prunes, fresh tobacco leaves, and brown sugar. Taste is fruity, tobaco, lacto. Not as acetic as the petrus age pale and drinks a little by better than his one. Medium carbonation with a nice body. Worth having again but wouldn't do a 100 miles for it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly fruity and malty to the nose with clear, dark brown body and very little head (contrary to what I was expecting from a belgian). Flavor of apples, citrus, malt vinegar and hops with an exceptionally well-balanced dry finish. The palate felt a little too thin and watery however. In general this was a great beer. I would definitely buy it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had from bottle from Total Wine & More. Pours a dark brown with hints of red and a tan head with good lacing. The aroma is tart which belies the subtleness of the sourness in the flavor. Other aromas of malts and fruits - cherries, raspberries... Tastes of a brown ale - malts, oak, slightly sour and more oak than I expected. With the tart aroma, I expected a more pronounced sour flavor, but it’s quite demure with just slight undertones. Very enjoyable, drinkable, and tasty.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours red with off-white foam head.
Aromas: kirsh, oak, hint of acetic.
This oud bruin is vinous, not tart nor too acetic, some oaky notes, red fruits. Surprisingly pleasant (I do not like sour ales).
A very good example to learn about sour beers and try your first one.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at beerbistro. Brown, slightly sour, but also sweet. I’m not sure I was a fan of the sweet ending in a sour beer, usually the sour aftertaste is what I crave. Was not a bad beer, but not really my thing.

pours a rich brown with small white head. aroma is tart and malty with some dark fruits in there. carbonation is nicely done making this fairly light. drinks with tart black cherries and oak with a sweet caramel malt body and a light fruity finish. tartness is nice and makes you want another drink but isnt too puckering. pretty well done.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2010 Bottle to flute. Hazy brown with minimal white head, sticky. Nose is acetic, soy. Starts with tartness, moves to wood, sour doesn’t stick around long. A bit thin and watery on the finish. Decent.
