2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark red/brown color with a quickly dissapating head. Nice aroma of caramel, sour red fruits. Mouthfeel is nice and well balanced. Not too bitter. Flavors of red, dark fruits, slight roasty or bready maltiness with a toasted character to it. Slight vanilla. The aroma tells me there’s gonna be tons of sourness, but theres not too much sourness on the palate, really.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep maple syrup brown with little head. Malty aroma of apple, pear, oak, and sour notes. Flavor is a little underwhelming, but what is there is good. Nice sourness and dry finish. A little watery.

Eh, it’s okay. Not really what I was expecting. The color is the best part of this beer. Beautiful dark reddish brown. Looks way better than it tastes. Smells like subtle fruits with a little twang but nothing that’s going to change you. Taste is kind of weird. Not really sure what it is. There is a really hidden tartness that I think would make it a lot better if it would shine through more. It’s not terrible but it just isn’t that stellar.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2006 Malty fruity complex flavour that’s lightly sour. Great beer, the only problem was I only had a 250ml bottle...
Rerate: 2006-02-09 Not nearly as good this time, lighter body and hardly sour at all 13/20.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle code 41022 from Sour Power pack @45° into Zwiesel 14.7oz cognac snifter; pours up a lively but controlled off white head over a mahogony body; aromas and flavors of cinnamon roll filling, apple skin, faint cherry and dusty wood with a mild spike of tartness from a light-medium body; decent, but leaves me looking for more intensity from the fruit, funk, and sour components

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice red/brown colour with a thin light tan head that lasted the duration of the sampling. Aromas of cherries, oak, and belgian yeast. The taste is great. Sour cherries, oak almost red winelike highlights, big carbonation, nice quick finish. Very nice

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very subtle spice and fruit flavors overshadowed by a sour, tart flavor. Not an especially strong flavor. It has almost no head and pretty nice lacing. Also slightly acidic with a carbonated moutfeel. The nose is not very big. Not bad.
