bhensonb (11512) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 25, 2010
Bottle from Bier Temple in Brussels. Pours medium amber/cognac with no head. Sour aroma with oak. Rather thin in body. Not much carbonation. Flavor is quite oaky and moderately sour. There’s a thread of mild fruit. The sour mellows with time. It finishes oaky and mildly astringent. It’s a bit vinous throughout. Heat is not at all annoying. It’s very good indeed.

Bottle, thanks to larsniclas. Reddish/orange/amber color, no head. Vinegar aroma, cork, woody, sourish, fruity, woody notes. Fklavor first brings vinegar and rather sour notes, then turns alittle moer fruity. Sour finish with some fruits and citrus.

Christian (11276) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2008
Light amber colour with no head. It has that unique fruity, funky, fresh Rodenbach aroma, with a little caramel and malt. Tart, yet rather sweet. Fruity like a chardonnay. Has a powerful fel to it, yet doesn’t show the 10% alcohol. Finishes sour and refreshing.

Bottle. [thank you, skortila/caesar]
bottle# 4677
Pour is very fizzy, settles as a beautiful, orange brass-like golden colour with absolutely no head. A few bubbles swim slowly upwards. Stunningly complex aroma. Lots of wood, some cherries, apples, honey, light ginger, vanilla, toffee and lots of tartness. Fine, oily mouthfeel with next-to-no carbonation. Flavour is pleasantly tart, some fruitiness, light lemons, good caramel and a clear, dry, woody note. The aftertaste is simply stunning with so much woodiness that I might go lick the nearest oak tree. The 10 % are nowhere to be found.

Pinball (10926) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2009
bottle 37.5cl at home. wrapped in paper, from ølbutikken. cask 132. numbered 004796 purs a clear golden orange witha few bubbels on top. very nice sour and slightly acid aroma with a littele leather in it too. also faint alc. flavor is a mixed experience. flavor is extremely dry, as a dry white wine. i get grapes, wineous notes, slight citrus, lots of dryness, cider apple, wood. i’d say the flavor resembles champagne or white wine more than sour beer. well balanced, lots of notes to taste, flavors are well blended. quite an experience, not quite like the other sour ales i’ve had.
