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.

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 (4549) - 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!

GoldenSpunky (120) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2005
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 (2471) - 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.

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!
