Pours clear dark amber with big fizzy off-white head. Yeasty and malty sweet aroma. Some berry feelings as well. Quite spritzy. It has a sweet taste though with caramel and a clear oak-like flavour at the dry end.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2006
250 ml Bottle: Pours ruby-brown with quite a bit of odd bubble lacing and a thin off-white head. Aroma is very busy and quite interesting; raisins, plums, molasses, oak are all present in heavy amounts. Flavour was decidedly underwhelming based on my post-aroma expectations, this is a carbonation-heavy mild brew with very little flavour when it’s cold. When I allowed it time to warm I could pick out a distinct red wine and fruity sweetness, but it was still a bit of a stretch. I’d hoped for better.

Bottle. Vinegar and sour cherry aroma. Dark reddish brown color with moderate head. Lightly sour cherry/raisin malt flavor. Light mouthfeel. Metallic aftertaste. Okay but not great.

Bottle. Brown-red appearance. More sweet than sour. BUt does have a slight woody, bretty sourness towards the finish. Some sweet caramelly notes, and as i said a woody sourness to finish. Quite light/soft.

Lubiere (9747) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2007
A dark clear mahogany brown with a thick receeding moka head. A nice aroma of ground cherries, light caramel, and light lactic notes. In mouth, a rather light oud bruin, with light sourish notes, some lemon juice, cherries, very short in mout. 250 mL bottle from a gift pack LCBO 2005, BB 16-06-06.

this was my intro to the flemish sour style. I didnt do much research on the beer before trying it, and man i weas thrown back by the sourness. Its tame compared to other sour beers, but its nice, and subtle. You can still get alot fo the malt, and a tad of the hops, and the balance is really nice.

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...

BelgiskOlklub (887) - Viby J, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2007
Bottle, 33 cl. Brown, sparkling, tan foam. Aroma of oak, malt and candy sugar. The flavor is sweet and only slightly hoppy or sour. Thin/medium body and thin sweet finish. I miss the sourness that used to be a trademark!

flatmatt (1051) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 21, 2009
330 mL bottle. Pours red brown with a sizeable light tan head. Sour and sweet aromas of green apple, some dark fruit and caramel. Flavor is much weaker than the aroma, with some dark fruit, apple, and a bit of earthiness, but just not very much of anything there. Maybe even tastes a bit dusty, if that makes sense. Nothing offensive, but this is just disappointing in its lack of flavor.
