Bosskie (530) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2007 25cl 5.2% bought in Belgium. Red-brown and clear but very dark, with a small head. The aroma is pretty interesting: burnt sugar, coffee, cardamom, curry, soy sauce, smell - it smells like a Chinese dish! Bitter-sweet flavour with a liquorice, burnt sugar, apple syrup taste. Overal an interesting beer, but a bit too sweet for me.

Dark color with thin off white fizzy head. Refreshing tartness with light fruitiness. Medium body and carbonation. Easy to drink. Very good.

OJB (39) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 27, 2007
The colour was deep reddish brown, with a creamy brownish head. There was a strong sour berry cinnamon spice aroma. The taste showed fruity berry and light malt, it was sour acidic, and there was a short light oak finish. This is a distinctive style with quite a lot of complexity, moderate body, and is quite refreshing.

The 750ML bottle poured a beautiful, clear, reddish amber beverage with a moderately sized frothy off-white head that was fully lasting, turning creamy as it matured and it left wonderful lacing on the glass. The aroma was pungent with sour and fruity aromas mingling to produce an almost brandy-like character. The body was medium-light with lively carbonation and a slightly watery texture. The flavor was quite tart and sour at the start. It does mellow quickly as it ages on the palate but still retains just a hint of sourness through the medium-long finish.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Earthy, the sour mixes well with the body of this beer. So easy to drink, finishes dry with a strong dark fruit prescense that balances it out so well. A great brew whos quality shines through.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Body is brown, with a thin light tan head. Aroma is pretty tart light sour cherries, some alcohol, and captain morgan like spiciness. Taste is fairly tart, light caramel, dried fruit, light sour cherry. Pretty good.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Pours a hazy reddish-orange with a medium, white head. The aroma is slightly acidic with a nice sour cherry component as well. Taste is smooth, with sour cherry notes, as well as some fruity notes. Nice sour ale.

750ml. Hazy burnt orange color with a medium head. Funky sour aroma; cherries and balsamic vinegar. Tasted some oak and fruity sweetness. Light to medium body. Very good.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Poured from a 330cl bottle into a tulip. This sour ale poured a dark brown color with a big light grayish tan head that slowly faded. The aroma was that of sour cherries. The flavor was sweet and sour dark fruit with some hints of oak. The mouthfeel was light-bodied with heavy carbonation. Almost champagne like. Very refreshing and drinkable.
