3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle via trade I think from Eepiest. Pours ruby brown with a half finger light tan head. Nice light appley sour nose, the nose is present, ominpresent but not so big as Alexander or Grand Cru. The taste is great, simple sour charm with a lot complex notes. I’m really happy to have had this, it is a damn tasty sour, with different characteristics and overall mellower than grand cru and not as complex as Alexander.

Dark brown body with a light tan head. Very fruity aroma, very like apples. Tastes a bit like a hard cider, but with a cleaner taste and a dryer finish.

The interesting sherry taste that managed to go slightly sour in a brown body attracted my attention from the glass. I enjoyed several servings of this to marvel at the taste, which I thought might do well with a cigar.

Quite sour. Murky Brown....wasn’t that a TV show? I freaking love sour beer. I’m glad this isn’t any stronger than it is or I’d be a damn alcoholic. This is better than air. Holycraipshiath.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 14 Sep 2007) Dark reddish brown colour with frothy off-white head. Fruity, sourish, lactic nose with notes of dark fruit. A bit closed. Sourish, slightly fruity taste with dark fruit, wood and bitter-sweet notes of cowberries in a rather dry finish. Rather balanced. Nice beer but far from the Grand Cru.

First rating of this style. Looks like a soda, not much head. Aroma is sour, with fermented fruits and a mild cheery note. Flavor i very nice, fresh acidic, mixed with a more complex tartness.

Night cap for me. Nice and easy drinking sour ale. Could quite possibly have a few of these without getting overpowered by it.
P.s. i love the aroma that these flemish sours are putting out. Very vinegary with the smell, but the taste is so completely different.
