11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Bottle from EDA. Brown in color with just the barest hints of red. Head is fleeting and no real lacing is left. Aroma is quite pleasant with cherry, wood and light malt with some sour smells. Lighter side of medium bodied, carbonation level is just fine. Flavor comes across as cherry and wood and then suddenly just disappears. Good, but the lack of flavor after the first second or two is a letdown.

Brown with a creamy head. Aroma from red wine, grapes, juniperberry and some cherry. Cherry and citrus in flavor, vinous, sweet and sour. Quite dry finish.

Amber, small but lasting offwhite head. Fruity aroma with red wine, sour grapes, cherry, juniper betty and with woody notes. Vinous flavor, fruity, grapes, jjuniper berries, cheery and citrus. Quite nice...

TheBeerGod (5230) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2005
Bottle. Pours ruby with tan foam littered about on the surface. Nose is balsamic vinegar, wood, sour cherries and light sugary notes. Taste is sour fruit, more wood, but less balsamic than expected. Light sugar coated black cherry flavor as well. The body is light and minimally carbonated. Then comes the "finish". The feel is very dry but it completely drops off at one point and becomes bland, believe it or not. Light wood, sour fruit, thinned vinegary notes and mild cherry tartness. Stick with the Alexander.

Rastacouere (6126) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2005
Lasting laced beige head, clearish brown. Sweet oaky nose, light cherry presence, but dominant acetic and syrupy notes. Light apple and pear juice sweetness. Woody palate has a very watery feel, carbonation is close to absent despite a small creaminess. This is wood juice with a dash of vinegar, nowhere near the grand cru in complexity, slight breadiness and overwhelming syrupy sweetness. Bleh.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 23, 2005
25 cl bottle, brought back from Belgium. Pours beautiful, clear, reddish brown with a minimal off-white head. Sweet-sour aroma, tart cherries, mince meat, brown sugar and spice, a little funk and some alcohol presence. Flavor features tart fruits, pie cherries, green apples and tart berries, red wine vinegar and an astringent finish. Light to medium body and gentle carbonation.

willblake (2652) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2005
07.16.05 Tap at BCTC. Brownish red with lasting thin head. Awful sulfur aroma, feet, and wood. Flavor is so much better than aroma. Much less sour than grand cru, light and tart.

CapFlu (4502) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2005
(Draught) Sampled at Clark’s Ale House in Syracuse, NY. Nose of sour cherries with a sweet balance. Flavour is nore like a child’s grape drink - too sweet yet watery. Absolutely fantastic look - a foamy beige with a deep copper. I’d happily drink this by the gallon if it was free but it lacks all the complexity of its big brother!

On tap at the Brickskellar. Sour aroma, sour flavor. Smelled and tasted like grape juice. Not very carbonated, but not flat either.
