Draft at Sharp Edge Creekhouse in Crafton, PA. Thanks to Jeanine (a regular) for buying this for me. Pours muddy red brown with a beige head. Nice aroma of cherries, apple, yeast, and dust. Flavor is not as sour as I was expecting, but nicely blended flavors of oak, yeast, cherry, and fresh apple cider on an earthy malt backgone. A hint of ginger on the finish. Nice beer.

Had on tap at Winking Lizard. Dark brown color with some red mixed in and a light beige head. The first sip was very cold. I noticed the sour cherry flavor right away. There was also a sweet malt. The tart/ sour taste is different, but it’s not bad. It went well with my meal.

Man do I love flemish sour ales. The color was deep amber. The head was creamy an dlight beige. The aroma was fermented wine, grapes, tart, alcohol, some spice, and sour. The flavor was sour, tart, fruit and some hops. The palate was smooth and the finish, clean.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin light tan head. The aroma was very tart and sour, some spice, cherry, glue vapor. The aroma was very sour and tart, a tad harsh, and had some slight cherry flavor. Not as complex as the nose. The palate was very tart and a little harsh while the finish was warm and tart.

Bottle at the winking lizard - Pours dark brown with a short tan head that fades quick but leaves a little lace. Aromas of Cherry, caramel, and chocolate. Falvor is first the quite tart cherries, then the caramel and chocolate flavors give a little sweetness before the sour finish. Well balanced with medium body and a fair mouthfeel.

On tap at the Palm brewery. Oaky and dusty. Sweetness and sourness combined to kame a fine beer. Nice stuff, with very full taste. Not for the novice drinker.

Marko (4263) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 10, 2007
0.25l bottle bought at a store in Split
Poured a lovely darker red colour with almost no head (a tiny ring of which was quite persistent though). The nose is very red wine like, grapes, a touch of tannines and a hint of malt. The taste is very, very subdued compared to the Grand Cru, sourish, cherries, apple, weak blood and maybe wood again, vinuous, hints of yeast and ginger. Some weak bitterness, and a bit dry. Nice, but not as flashy as its big brother.

Although I love this style of beer this is best served with frites. Page 386 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 386 of his Classic 500 Brews to go.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - MAR 7, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2007 No head, deep red colour. Very acetic in the nose, wood hints, red fruit and a bit plastic, perhaps vinylic, to me. Sweet and sour well balanced in mouth, watery.
