A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

Dark, red-brown, beige head that disappears rather quickly. The sour aroma spread around the table nad I fearfully let the glass meet my lips, as Iím reassured by the name, that tells me this must be good.... Iím very new to this type of beers... The first sips makes my tongue, palate and lips contract, so I must look pretty much has a henís butt-hole. But after the first sips of cultural chock my mouth gets used to this beer and the vinegar notes are much friendlier... But then what?? Weeeellll, itís a very complex flavour wit many notes. I recognize cherries and fruit, and my thoughts go to a slightly sweet/sour kriek. The finish is refreshing, acidic and gueze like. Itís definitely an exciting beer, and I actually liked it a lot more that I expected, going as far as to say itís really nice!!

Bottle (12oz). Sour cherry and malt aroma - light mustiness. Medium brown color with small film of a head. Tart sourness hits the tongue immediately followed by a musty light cherry flavor.

12 oz bottle ini new glarus flutes. A very brown color with some red and white head. Aroma is cherries, brett, very nice. Delicous tart, cherries, a little alc and green apple. Body is med with a little creamineness. This is fantastic, Iíve had it on tap and in 750 before but for some reason this is the best itís ever been.

0,33 bottle. Brown head was creating itself loudly while I was pouring it slowly into a glass - great carbonation, feel fizzy especially in the back roof of your mouth. Colour is deep brown, quite sexy appearance. Aroma is sour, cherries marzipan and spruce - extremely interesting to me. Texture is slick. Finish is astringent. Flavour really sour. Sour beers are not me type but this one - oh, my! Wonderful!

bottle, from trade with JCapriotti. best by 25/04/08 Good aroma, sour. Cherry,red wine vinegar,green apple. Hazed dark orangy brown color, small head that faded slowly to a ring, then nothing. Sour flavor. Cherry tartness, hint of a sugary sweetness, quick hint of a yeasty funkiness. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, sweet sour finish. Tasty. I really liked the way I got sugar sweet hint in the middle of the flavor. Enjoyed the whole way down.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2009 Original Rating, May 25, 2007. Dark red color with no head. Tart cherry aroma. The cherries really shine through in the taste, but the tartness and sourness fade into almost nothing. Solid, sweet malt base. Very good, but Iíd like my Flemish Sour to be more sour. Re-rating, April 18, 2009. SourFest II. Best By 090807. Tasted April 18, 2009. Cloudy copper color with a large head. Aroma and taste are primarily vinegar. A little sweet and tart fruit is left in the flavor. Malty base is still there. 6/5/7/3/15

From 750ml bottle in generic goblet. Pours beautiful garnet red with lasting ring head. Aroma of sour cherries and wood and yeast. Delightfully tart flavor of wood and sour cherries with a little brown sugar. Medium body and carbonation. Awesome. More, please.

Hazed Rich Brown with Red Hue and Sandy Head. Strong Sour Notes, Some Dried Fruit and Malt As Well on the Nose. The Flavor is Quite Nice. One of the More Balanced Sours Iíve Tried to Date. Wonderful Sour Flavor, Fruit Notes..and a Very Nice Malty Foundation That Keeps This As Balanced As it Is. Very Easy to Drink a Mouthful At a Time. Alcohol Level Means You Can Afford to Be Greedy.
