Grovlam (4189) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2007
Bottle. Head was spare and slightly creamy and light off-white. Color was ruby red. Aroma was very fruity, with notes of apple, grape, cherry. Other notes being leather, caramel and some vinegar. Light to medium bodied with a sticky texture and a soft carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor, with light notes of acidic. Note much bitterness here. Light fresh and average finish. God beginners Flemish Sour I thought, but still enjoyed this one.

jrob21 (3163) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Reddish/brown color with a minimal offwhite head. Very bubbly and carbonated. Slight sour aroma with some yeast. Sour on the front end of the taste, slightly crisp, fruity back end. Would like some more meat/malt backbone.

beeranarchist (231) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2007
Bottle. Redbrown with a nice compact offwhite head. Leather, a little caramel and vinegar in the nose, Flavour is a little dissappointing compared the lovely aroma; Sour, sweet and a little watery. Although still a nice one.

Dark color very small head. Smelt like vinegar and tasted like vinegar. This bottle had to be skunked.

deep reddish brown body with medium head...aroma of grape wine, vinegar, wood, and sour funk...flavor of grape, plum, vinegar, sweet and sour notes, and a heavy yeast profile...quite nice...palate was a tad thin

I was really looking forward to cracking open this classic, and was not disappointed. If you like sour (as I do!), then this is the beer for you! Appearance was reddish with fairly little white head, and appealing. Aroma is sour, sour, sour, as is the flavor. Taste was a bit like good vinegar, and distinctly sour. As it warmed, it was very wine-y, like a chardonnay. Mouthfeel and drinkability were both good. Thus far, the highlight of my beer drinking day.
