Bottle at Sharp Edge. Reddish brown body, creamy and lasting off-white head. Aroma has sour concord grapes (light), watered down oak and cherries. Flavor has light watered down sour cherry juice with some alcohol oak notes. Pleasant crisp sourness that is light and well-balanced.

Taste is subjective...and while this is my very favorite beer in the world, it may not be yours. Try it and decide for yourself. I discovered this beer at the Sunset Grill and Tap in Allston, Ma. Iíve also encountered at at the Publick House in Brookline, MA. As far as bottled, Iíve found it at the Martyís Liquors in both Newtonville, MA and Allson, MA.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - OCT 12, 2006
First try at this style, but not my last hopefully. Pours a cloudy brownish in color with a small white head. Slightly sour vinous aroma. Softly sour malty flavor with a very light finish. Very similar to the guezes Iíve had. Tart, but refreshingly so. Nice.

Fin (9314) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2006
Bottle at Zuideterras, Antwerp 05-10-06. I hadnít initially picked this Loz had, but after a couple of mouthfuls she decided that it really wasnít her thing at all. Colour was reddy/brown, with a fruity quite sour almost vinegary like aroma, this beer also tasted quite sour and sharp I didnít instantly warm to it but like with the Guezeís after a few mouthfuls I began to appreciate it some more, certainly should try it again.

GregClow (3100) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2006
Bottle sample at Union Beer Trade Tasting, NYC. Ruddy ruby-brown with a moderate sized biege head. Mellow funk & sour woodiness in the aroma. Flavour is soft and mellow, with some tartness alongside a nice maltiness, and some vinous character in the finish. The Rodenbach Grand Cru is one of my absolute favourite beers, so it was nice to give this a try - itís obviously less complex than the G.C., but itís definately cut from the same cloth.

PorterPounder (7068) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Liquors - 750 ml bottle. Nice, sparkling copper pour, with a soft off-white head that leaves a fair bit of lacing. Aroma is very faint- hints of spices - not much else. Flavor is noticeably bland. Slight vinegary sourness, but not to the degree of puckerness that I expected. Hints of sour citrusy fruit in the front end and as it warms, detect a bit of nuttiness which improves it a bit. Decently thick mouthfeel.

Pours out a nice red color with a huge tan head. Aroma is very fruity, sweet and sour. Flavor mirrored the aroma very well.
