kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2006
Bottle: Lovely ruby amber in colour with a short tan head and good lace. Awesome nose of cherries, rotting grapes and wood. Sweetish sugary start with an acidic finish. Body is quite full, though acidity balances it. A little sticky with brown sugary bits. Nice, but smells better than it tastes.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2006
Dark brown pour with a thin offwhite head. Aroma of sour cherries and oak. The flavor also has sour cherries and oak. The body has a light to medium thickness with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. Very akin to other Verhaeghe Flemish Sours where the oak is very present, it’s good.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2007 Pours a very dark red almost brown. Small but persistent off-white head. Intense sour nose. Stong fruity (mainly cherry) sour taste. A bit vinous with some caramel notes. Oak/barrel presence is moderate. If find the Queue de Charrue a bit too sweet. Kind of a Duchesse de Bourgogne (the reference for the style) diluted with one of those commercial cooler drink. Flavour of berries nose-to-nose with cherries. Wants very hard to be a Duchess but is barely a Baroness.

rederic (3213) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2006
Reddish mahogany color, with a tan-colored head, nice nose of oakiness, wineyness, with a caramel note, black cherries fruitiness, with a chocolatey hint in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet and sour cherry fruitiness, oaky character, with a slightly note of tartness and iron, malty touch, leading towards a fruity acidic finish. A good beer, but not as good as the duchesse de bourgogne.

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 (3668) - 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 (2148) - 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 (5131) - 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 (4691) - 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.
