Christian (12622) - 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.

bu11zeye (12616) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2008
(Bottle, 2004 vintage) Pours a clear golden body with a spare white quickly diminishing head. Aroma of horse blanket, sour apple, oak, cork, white grapes, apple cider vinegar, and some sherry. Flavor of sour green apples, citric, vinous, and brett with a dry oak finish. Alcohol is there, but nice hidden in the flavor and aroma. Excellent!

bierkoning (12188) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2008
Bottle, bought expensively in the Cracked Kettle. pale orange color. Vinous aroma with muscat grapes, oak and sherry notes. Sour flavors, woody, citric and vinous. Sharp on the edges. Not a sign of the promised 10% ABV. Almost flat. An aftertaste that seems to linger on forever. Without any doubt a classic, I wish I had a crate of this, I would store it for many more years.

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.

BeerandBlues2 (11971) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 23, 2012
2004 Bottle received via trade with Alen. Pours mostly clear with essentially no head, just a few tiny bubbles sitting on top. Aroma is acetic acid, light date notes, cellar, and straw malt. Some alcohol notes permeate late with stale hops and cork notes. Flavor is acetic fruit (pears, grapes, apricot) and a substantial malt body, lightly sweet with a dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

Scopey (11969) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2011
2004 bottle (number 017505) at the Delirium cafe, Brussels. It pours reddish amber with pretty much no head or carbonation. The nose is sweet strawberry, raspberry, vinous, malt vinegar and orange. The taste is juicy strawberry, wood, tangy cherry, tart lemon, some malt vinegar (but not nearly as much as Grand Cru), wine-like, brandy and alcohol warmth in the finish. It is initially full of sweet fruit, but has a tart finish. It is very well balanced and so drinkable at this strength. Amazing stuff.

Pinball (11896) - 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.
