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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Stone’s Sour Festival, July 2007. poured brown (or bruin, en vlaams) with a deent beige head. Malty aroma with some sour funk. And intersting mix of sour, sweet, malt and spicy, but not all together great. An interesting brew, but no the best that Belgium has to offer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 330ml. A dark brown colour with a good head. Aroma of brown sugar, blackcurrant, caramel and hops. Taste has roasted malt, blackcurrant, a little oak, citric hops and cocoa. A little sourness in the finish. An interesting and enjoyable brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Basic reddish-brown bubbly tan headed beer with moderately obvious wooded cherry aromas combining with balsamic and some mustiness. Flavour doesn’t carry forth and is not nearly complex enough for my liking - there is a bit of soft sour cherry but overall it feels a little uninspired.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy brown color, half-inch head that didn't lace the glass. Not much aroma, a little yeast and fruit (I think it was served too cold). Initial sour, malt flavor with some blackberriy hints. As the beer warmed, chocolate and dried cherry flavors emerged. Medium body with a sour, dry finish. This was my first sour ale and I thought it was quite good.

3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown but filter clear. Little to no head. Nose is very faint. Can’t pick anything up on it. Malt comes through with some deep fruit flavors (plum/prune). Slight oak flavor and slightly sour. Finishes extra dry. Nice beer, but I would have liked it to be slightly more sour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Healthy-looking deep brown. Unusual aroma is difficult to break down, with hints of chocolate, lemon and steel layered over a sour malt body. Tight, fizzy palate could use more malt to flesh things out. Sour chocolate flavour is nuanced by a herbaceous/celery element. Slight bitter finish. Different and worth trying again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy reddish brown with persistant beige head. Aroma of oak, cherry, balsamic vinegar, yeast. Medium mouthfeel with sweetish finish. Not bad at all.
