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.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2007
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.

Floback (537) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Emerges cherry-brown with absent head. Dark wood and astringent sourness on the nose. Tastes of oak, mild Pinot Grigio. vinegar, and hints of Granny Smith apple. Doesn’t hit home like the Grand Cru does.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle. Reddish brown in colour with a medium sized off-white head. Refreshing with a hint of sourness and notes of fruit, wood and a bit winous.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Dark red with no head. Oaky, vinuous nose with a sour cherry. Very nice, smooth palate. Cherry, sour malt, and some champagne. Mildly acidic, but not overpowering.

Kirill (277) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2007
fruit and wood, tastes almost like a cross between a cider and a wine, not bad but not quite a beer

thegreenrooster (3432) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Pour is a dark red with a small tan head. Aroma is deffinatly vinegar with some cherry and wood smoke. Flavor is bitter with notes of cherry and oak. Almost like a merlot. A good example of the style for me as this is not so sour it is undrinkable. A good starter beer for this style.

What other beer would I drink on brew day for my own Flemish Sour? Very deep, dark ruby color with almost no head. A little sourness in the aroma along with a very subdued oak profile. Huh... very light sourness in the taste. Decent malt base. A little cherry and sour fruit. Totally not what I expected. A lot less funk than I figured and hoped for. Not bad, but a bit of a letdown.
