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.

fruit and wood, tastes almost like a cross between a cider and a wine, not bad but not quite a beer

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.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 25, 2007
Bottle, a dark brown with a large light brown head. A sour cherry aroma. A sour cherry flavour as well, an enjoyable baby brother of the Grand Cru.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 25, 2007
On Tap. Reddish brown color. Smell of sour apples, cherries, vinergar, sugar, malt and oak. Tastes the same but even better. Cleans the pallet. Very smooth but very enjoyable.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - JUN 23, 2007
Ruby coloured - almost brown - with a nice foamy head. Cherry and some sour in the aroma with a bit of wood. Some more light cherry notes in the flavour rounding itself off with a mild and refreshingly sour finish.

doublebock (535) - California, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Color is brown with a touch of ruby. Frothy thick head. Aroma is that of sweet champagne. Tart sour cherry like taste with lively carbonation on the tongue.
