Transfer from BA review on 8-16-12 -
Served on tap in a snifter glass
Appearance – Served a deep ruby color with a small off white head. The head faded relatively fast to leave only a very light level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma was of a heavy sour grape and cherry aroma with some green apple and vinegar smells.
Taste – The taste begins of a fruity sourness. A puckering cherry and grape are most noticeable in the beginning. As the taste advances however a apple cider vinegar taste comes to the tongue and blasts the taste buds with a sour flavor. These take the taste to the end where a light yeasty flavor comes to the tongue along with a lighter dark fruit sweetness which ever so lightly mellow out the very vinegary taste.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is light and a little prickly with the carbonation level being above average. Both do a wonderful job with the very sour nature of the beer and make it quite drinkable.
Overall – While not really my favorite beer style, this is a nice and sour Flemish with a good flavor profile. It is classic for a reason.

Deep mahogany with a small head. Aroma is cherry , cherry bonbons, chocolate. Body is medium, texture thin, carbon well. Taste is sour. Palate with sour tones like a mixture of different cherries, but also oak wood and some medicine. B@H

THE supreme sour beer, not too sweet. not too sour. Not as complex as when the bottles were wrapped in paper but still good nonetheless.

Decent brew, but sourness feels bit dull. Nice berries, fruity, bit oak, light malty, spices. Too sharp sourness and acidic. Drinkable, worth to try, but not second time

pours a chestnut colored brown with hints and highlights of ruby. When poured vigorously, a nice 1’’ head was produced. A dense foamy head that fades quickly.
The aroma is that of tart and cidery with hints of church pews.
Tastes tart and cidery. Hints of a good wine too. A touch of oak barrels.
Light lactic tartness is refreshing. Some fruity tones are evident.
A refreshing, thirst quenching beer.
