Pours out a nice red color with a huge tan head. Aroma is very fruity, sweet and sour. Flavor mirrored the aroma very well.

This was a good beer for the style and I really liked the tart flavor. Well worth a try but it is a bit expensive.

This Flemish sours pours a deep reddish brown color from a 330 ml bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and tart cherries. A medium bodied Flemish sour. Tart and sour cheery flavors abound, but without that oak and other complexities of the grand cru. Fruity and tart, crisp and clean. Nice carbonation. It may not be as complex, but it has a freshness that the Grand Cru doesn’t. Nice beer. Perhaps this is a good starter for the style. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sour and tart.

Has all the look and style of the Grand Cru, but comes up light for those not ready to pucker up! It’s a great way to slowly introduce your less adventurous friends.

dwedin (249) - Happy Valley, Oregon, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Decent light brown head with dark brown murky body. Molasses, plum, cherry, wood, smoke and tobacco aromas. Creamy body with livey carbonation. Strong sweetness at first but fades into a balanced sourness and moderate bitter finish. Excellent beer, one of my favorites.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 17, 2006
Vinous, sour-but-sweet aroma... some slight maltiness is detectable. Bright, crisp, acidic (well, sour) flavors... undertones of malty sweetness and white wine. Nice clean and dry finish.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2006
Red-tinged brown with ample tan, finely-laced head. Buttery, fruity (cherry) aroma, slightly acidic with mostly fatty underpinnings. Flavor is more muted - actually not as tart as the aroma implies. Some (baked) pie crust notes in here along with a formidable front of metallicness. Palate/finish is surprisingly thin and wan though you’re left with a pleasant-enough remembrance of cherries and toast, albeit a transient one. A lot more fun to sniff than to taste.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Bottle on 8/10/06. A big beige head sits on a cloudy dark brown our, leaivng some good lace for and impressive looking start. Aroma is decidedly sour with some fruitiness, and almost a little musty characer. Body is light with light carbonation. Some sweet fruity flavors are offset by a distinct tartness that is refreshing.

DocLock (8184) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy ruby/deep coppery color with 1-finger tan head. Aromas of tart cherry, raspberry, earthy oaky malt, merlot. Tastes fruity, with a big tart cherry flavor, backed by some merlot and earthy malty hints. Not overly tart, and notably complex, with a crisp, tart (but not mouth-puckering) finish.

750 bottle all to myself. Served in a flute glass from America Online, engraved “I Survived Y2K!” A fitting celebration of passing the Series 7 Securities License exam for my new job. Clear brown beer with a ruby tint. Nice orange head that fades to a ring. Musty sour aroma. Flavor is sour/tart over malt, and rather dry. Very drinkable. Tasty and enjoyable, kept my interest through the whole bottle. Not very alcoholic, but a satisfying brew. I prefer the Duchesse, however this is an excellent brew nonetheless. A little expensive at $8.59 at ABC in Jacksonville.
