Bottle, from Julio’s. Ok nose, sour. Lite fruit, cherry, green apple, oak, vinegar. Clean brownish orange color, good beige white fluffy head that faded quickly. Sour flavors, like aromas, with a little pepper. mediom body, lite smooth mouthfeel, sour dry finish. An easy to drink sour ale in my book, thought nose was better when it was cooler.

Just had a bottle last night. IMO, this beer has a lot going for it...texture, aroma, taste, etc. The sour finish is strong so I can see where some would be turned-off.

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 1, 2005
Draft. Served WAY too cold. Would have taken hours to warm. Beautiful beer though. Deep garnet hue. White rosey head. nose is full os lemon zest and tomatos, little bit of bubblegum as things warm up. Smells more and more like twizzlers. Steely tomatos on the palate and a slight sour zest. Dry finish, fruit around the edges. Long finish. Overall not sour enough.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2005
Very tart, earthy, dark cherry aroma that offers notes of tamari, balsamic vinegar and miso. Dark reddish-brown coloured body with good clarity and ruby highlights is topped by a fizzy, tan head that recedes to ring and partial cover. Tart cherries, earthy wood, and a hint of balsamic sweetness are notable amid the barnyard flavour up front that becomes wed to a moderate bitterness and fairly strong acidity. Fizzy but soft carbonation with a very dry texture to the medium body. Flute glass. Allowed to warm from fridge temperature. Bottle (Ølbutikken, Aug-05).

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 27, 2005
Mahogany color with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of white grapes, vinegar and some light notes of brown sugar. Light sweetness initially, followed up by some sour cherries. More watery and less sour than the aroma suggested. Finishes tart and dry with some oaky flavors. Very quaffable.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2005
No#55. Aroma is sweet and sour, with some intresting woody flavours kicking about. Flavour has light cheeryness to it with the same sweet and sourness as the aroma, refreshing with a dry finish, excellent common place beer.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Draught at Tyler’s in Durham, NC. Clear ruby color with thin head that laced the glass. Sour, with cherry, oak, and apple cider undertones. Thin bodied, didn’t do much for my palate.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2005
Bottled. A deep red coloured beer with an off-white head and some good lacing. The aroma is fusty, oaky and fruity. The taste is a little artificial - all the usual suspects are there but it seems a bit manufactured and not full-bodied enough. Neither here nor there.

Clear red-brown with a fine cream coloured head. Grassy vineously sour aroma with some almond. Lactoacidous on the palate. Flavour contain almond and red currant. Refreshing beer.
