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.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 bottle @ de hems. Brown with thin tan head. Sour berry, vinegar and cherry aroma. Taste to match with the addition of malts and oak. Finish of sour strawberry - very similar to sour straw candy. Fantastic pucker, really sharp. A good sour ale, but really too acidic.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 21, 2007
In the 750 mL bottel from Beertopia. Pours dark reddish brown. Clear with a medium dark beige head. Aroma of vinegar and raisins. At warming, the oakiness emerges to the scent. Flavor is less acidic than most and drinkable in spite of the style. I like the pronounced oak flavors in this one making it more than a glass of vinegar.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - APR 15, 2007
UPDATED: APR 16, 2007 Bottle. Pours nice red/chesnut with a beige head. Aroma is sour cherries, tart apple, oak, as well as sweet malty notes. Flavor is mostly the same, the sides of the tongue catch the strong sour notes, while the sweet oaky vanilla hits the front, and a somewhat bitter finish lingers at the back. This beer is just as deep and complex as any wine.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 6, 2007
750ml bottle. My first Flemish Sour. Pours a red brown color with a big bubbly head. Aroma is tart, sour, buffalo chicken sandwich. Taste is tart and sour as well. The level of sourness is just right, not overdone. Interesting for sure.

Pours a rich mahogany with a modest head. Nose of sour cherries and yeast. Taste is crisp, tart and complex. It tingles the senses as it rolls through the mouth.

paco (527) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 1, 2007
Sweet aroma. Pomegranate. Very fruity nose. Red color. Nice head. Cherry flavor, pomegranate, sour and cranberries. Sweet yet still sour. Long finish. Too much carbonation. makes me pucker. Think of sour candy.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 8oz serving in a tulip glass. Dark amber/brown in color with very small head and no lacing. Very rich, vinous aroma. Flavor was much like wine, sweet, with a strong fruity/cherry flavor. I wasn’t sure what to expect, it was my first Flemish sour ale, but good overall.
