BBB63 (5741) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2003
1999 - Thank to Hopsrus for bringing this to the RBSG 2003. Ruby hue with nice head and good lacing, medium to full-bodied. Vinous aroma with hints of citrus, wood, and spices. Very sour initial taste but lessened as it warmed up on my palate. Tart finish. Clean. Oily and soft mouthfeel. Very enjoyable, but you must be a fan of this style to have recommended.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2003
Light lactic nose. Deep burgandy red with a much lighter lactic characer and flavour than the grand cru. This beer is more designed for large consumption. Very drinkable.

Frank (2384) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Pours a nice dark brown. Tan head is thick and foamy. Intricate webs of lacing. Nose is spicy and vinous with a hint of tart apple. Definitely tart with some lemon juice overtones. Notes of grapes, apples, and wine. Dry finish. Very refreshing.

JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Red, but very, very dark. Sour and acidic. Dry, and slightly cherry at the end. Overall very woody and "sour-bourbon-like". The Grand Cru is far superior.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2003
Some may like the sour overtones. I do not. Obviously an acquired taste. Low hop and no body. A beer by definition only.

Racegoer (351) - Indiana, Indiana, USA - JUN 12, 2003
Oak and malty and refreshing,fruity rounds with the oak flavours and is easy to drink.

RichardGretton (4176) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2003
Black beer with a soft frothy head and a sour malted nose. The flavour is mildly sour, which makes for a very drinkable beer.

haukur (1201) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - MAY 17, 2003
UPDATED: APR 18, 2005 red brown in color, strange fruity smell. Taste was very vinegary, but very nice.

Eirikur (362) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - MAY 16, 2003
This is a very vinegary and sour beer. I found it a bit soury for my taste, but overall it is a fine beer.
