Reminded me of a flemish brown, nice, but a bit divergent in tastes. Better than the Douchesse (and Iím sure i didnít spell that one right), but still a bit lax on the tongue concerning individual tastes.

I have a hard time with sour ales but this one is the best of them. The aroma is sour, with fruit like raspberries and grapes, acid, and basement smells. The appearance is red brown with a foamy head. The flavor is acidic and sour with vinegar and fruit. The palate is somewhat thin.

Draught at Redbones 7/26/06. Pours a dark red color with a small off white head. Nose is raspberry jam with some light sour hints. Palate is syrupy and flat. Flavor is more of the sourness with some light jam notes, seems kinda thick and sugary with some light fruit notes that are not overly pleasant.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2009 Bottled. Dark brown with a reddish hue and a small beige head. Sweet and acidic aroma with some cellar. The flavor is much the same, but with berries. Medium body with some astringency. Feels a bit fizzy in the mouth, but not in a negative way. Long sour finish. It was pleasant with my mussels. Rating: 6-3-6-4-13-3.2. 060714

Bottle, 25cl. A finger-worth of dense beige head sits on top a reddish, muddy brown body. For most people I guess it looks bad, I like the looks of this one. Vinous, vinegary nose with a good fruityness, cherries and dark berries layering up. A note of cellar and prunes also shows up. Itís quite astringent, well carbonated, smooth and palate-cleansing. Thereís also a sweetish impression, even though itís quite dry. Vinous and vinegar-ish flavor with cherries, blackberry, prune notes, hints of cellar and lemon. Thereís also a sugary sweet touch to the beer, maybe a bit more than I would prefer. Overall a very nice beer, packed in an ugly labelled bottle. 091103

Sample at Indy tasting Dickís 96th - Aroma of dark cherry, sweet and sour sauce, oak, and malt. Pours hazy brown red with small head and good lacing. Flavor is dissapointing but still tart. More cardboard than oak and all the fruit is gone. Palate is tart and fizzy. I like sours, but not this one.

Bottle. Deep deep burgundy red colour, vinous, slightly sour aroma, flavour is tart. Not as tart as geuze though, but definitely sour, appetizing. Interesting.

Definitley a sour ale. Has a nice, deep red color and spicy aroma. Tart, sour taste that is a lot better than it sounds. A rather interesting brew.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2007 Pours nice burgundy with long lasting head. Has a sweet aroma, maybe some sour white grapes, raspberries. Has a tart flavor. Sour fruitiness, maybe a hint of sour raspberry. Has a nice mouth feel, an abrupt sour flavor and a really quick, clean finish. This was my first sour ale, which needs to be revisited.

750 ml bottle corked and caged. Deep dark orange-brown beer, thin yellowish head. Great aroma, oak, light acetic notes as well. Much sweeter maltiness than is evident in the Grand Cru. Fruity plums and a strong woodiness. Lightly metallic. Flavour is also quite sweet with strong plumminess and light brown sugar as well. Faint sourness. Quite restrained in terms of sourness and complexity. Texture is quite bready and yet refreshing. It grows on you.
