On tap at the Brickskellar. Didnt actually order it but tried some of BuckNakeds. Decent sour aroma. Very tart to the lips with a watery head that fizzles away. Cherry tartness, with citrus flavors. Dently drinkable.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2005
Bottle (BBE 20/10/05) (07/07/05). Bready malt and fruity plum and cherry aromas. Refreshing sourness helps to balance the quite sweet but slightly thin body. Interesting with hints of complexity and above all drinkable.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Sourish aroma notes, fruityness, red berries, wooden casks. Very dark ruby red to brown colored body, beautiful dense medium off-white head. Some good fruity sourness, berries, not too overwhelming but quite balanced. Beautiful beer!

Geiserich (3265) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUN 2, 2005
Bottled:
Sourly aroma, some fruitiness and sweetness. Light sourly flor, notes of xherries and a light dry finish. Quite nice, but not very complex.

Bottle. I freaking love this style! Not as good as their Grand Cru, but this is pretty damn good too. Ruby-reddish-brown, small head. Clean smell that reflects well on the taste. Looking fine in my Orval glass. Prominent cherries, oak, brandy. Quite complex and well-balanced. A little bit of effervescence, challenging sourness but not excessively so. One of the better 5% ABV beers I have ever had. Still, I think it could do better with a little more strength. I guess that’s what the Grand Cru is, but dammit, I don’t think they ship it to Japan.

highlandlad (1412) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2005
Classic Flemish sour ale. Poured a rich rummy colour with a moderate lasting head. Heavy aroma of sour cherries, leather and a thick underlay of alcohol. Lively on the tongue, with a puckering sour finish. Initial flavour is acidic cherries but there’s a solid oaky middle before that tart finale. Can’t pretend this is my favourite style but I found this more balanced than the Grand Cru.

TBone (12321) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2005
Bottled 25cl (BB 11/2005)
Red ruby color, small creamy tanned head. Aroma of leather jacket and cherries, some sourness. Sour, tart, quite watery mouthfeel. Carbonated, but flat in the finish. Acidy like one could expect but not so much, quite easy to drink and simple. Beginner’s flemish sour ale.
