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.

3.3 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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear brown colour with red reflexes, minimal white head with decent lacing. Aroma is sour cherry, red wine, a bit of wood. Lightly sour. Lively carbonation, light body. It’s a rather simple beer and not aggressive, so I guess it might be good for people with little experience with sour beer. For me - quite ok.

Clear, dark brown, light tan head. Notes of sour berries, some funk, basement odors. Lightly sweet body, touch of sourness. Medium body, fairly chewy, light-to-medium acidity. Fairly short finish. Fine.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured brown with an off white head. Aroma of sour cherries. Flavor started off some sweet fruit, mostly cherries, and finished with a sweet oak texture. Different but nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle, 5.5% A/V
Pours dark dark brown/red with tan head. Nose consits of an incredible red wine smell with some malt and complex bitterness. Tastes fairly grapey, with malt and red wine aspects. An almost grape juice finish which is an interesting departure from almost any beer ive had.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Simplistic compared to Rodenbach GC. Reddish brown in color with a medium, tan colored head that sticks around for the most part. Aroma is sour and sticky sweet at the same time with minor wood notes. Initial taste is sour and fades into a discernable barnyard flavor that is overwhelmed by the fruity sweetness. Creamy through the middle and finish. Not bad at all, but it was not as interesting as I qould’ve liked.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brune foncée avec des reflets rubis, léger col de mousse beige. Nez boisé et cerise léger. Attaque acide et un peu amère, compensée par un peu de sucre, le côté boisé domine largement mais on décèle quelques notes de houblons herbeux. Corps léger, très bonne longueur. Une honnête vieille brune mais on trouve bien meilleur...
