Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Very good looking, a crystal clear, deep brown with strong red highlights that makes it attractive despite the thin white head. The nose is teeming with a fruity tartness, a bit of caramel, and cobwebs. Thin bodied, it delivers flavors of tart cherries and plums, a light malty sweetness, and rust, finishing on a mildly sour note. Nice.

rauchbier (3652) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2006
Bottle conditioned, at the old Bier Circus, Brussel March 2005. Bronze red, thin off white head and moderate condition. Pleasant vinous frruity tarness and hints of caramel in the nose, full bodied sweet fruitiness in the mouth with a balance of metallic tartness, gentle lingering sweet and tinny finish.

Dorqui (2127) - Brescia, ITALY - DEC 27, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Bottled. Bubbly and friable foam. Reddish dark color, much somber and racy, optimal fizz. Pleasant and balanced aroma; notes of must, red grape, raspberries and cherry cake. Crisp and balsamic taste; moderate and balanced malty rumors, good acidity and alcoholic perception. Long and persistent sour end. Not too watery, not too alcoholic, not too soupy... excellent.

thebeertourist (5073) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2005
Reddish brown with a fair creamy tan head that leaves lacing. Sour aroma with hints of vanilla. Flavour is sweeter with lots of caramel, but balanced by acidity. An out-of-the-ordinary thirst quencher.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2005
(Bottled) Slightly hazy, dark reddish amber color with a small head. Sweet and tart aroma with toffee and wood, even hints of port. Sweet, fruity flavor with caramel, some dried fruit, cherries and the typical Verhaeghe tartness. Medium-bodied, sweet-sour palate with quite low carbonation. Quite sweet, but still enjoyable, tart dessert brew.

henrik (41) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2005
Amber with a nice thick but rather quickly disappearing head. Slightly sour malty very special aroma. Good filling mouthfeel and a long refreshing aftertaste. Very drinkable indeed.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Dark brown, filtered and clear with a creamy head. Sweet at first, but then some dry metallic notes take over with a tart finish. Lovely. 040899

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2005
Bouteille à consommer de préférence avant Juin 2006. Couleur rouge aux reflets bruns, apparence semi opaque. Abondante mousse beige adhérant bien à la paroi du verre. Arômes de vinaigre balsamique, de vieux cuir, de fruits rouges et de bois humide. En bouche, les cerises sont davantage évidentes, impression légèrement sucrée donnant ensuite vedette au côté tartrique s’amplifiant graduellement en finale. Vinaigré, aigre, fluoro aux cerises, un brin de méta de détectable en finale. Corps d’épaisseur moyenne, douce carbonatation. Bouteille Bieropholie, Mars 2004.

Hansen (7351) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2005
Sort of funny beer, sour, notes of lactic acid. Colour is dark brown, head medium. Perhaps there is a bit wood in the flavor.
