Very nice color. Wonderfully sour. Sweet enough. Rather refreshing, but you must like flemmish sours.

This is is my First Flemish Sour Ale, I’m surprised that it is supposed to be this sour. Hasa taste of tart cherry and Red Wine Vinegar, pour and looks great. The Malts are ncie and clean. The Color is a beauitful Dark Amber Red, has a astrigent bitter after-taste.

Bottle. Poured a deep red with thin pinkish head. Fruity red wine vinegar smell. Flavor was very sour cherry, not to vinegary. the fruityness prevented ti from being too sour. Finish is sour, dry and refreshing. Beer is a bit thin, but at only 5% I could almost make this a session brew. (I like them sour!).

I’m a huge fan of the rodenbach line. Sour cherry smell with just a little vinegar in there. Deep ruby color with white head. I would love if these were served instead of red wine, I think it could stand in very well for those who like drier, tannin heavy reds. THe sourness cleans up the finish so well. The cherry and malty flavor and medium-full body are perfect.

Flemish sours are so good. But not so good when they come as the 37th beer of the night. Still appreciate that sour gumball and winey-fruit taste.

Dark brown in color with a light brown creamy head. Deep malt aroma with sweet bits that tingles the nose. Extreamly bitter alcohol tastes with a malt finish.

Consumed at Lucky Baldwins in Pasadena with my old lady. She took a sip or two and proclaimed that she likes Belgian sytle beers.....she has a nice ass too. Mohagany in color with a medium sized, frothy head. Not too sour and overpowering in the aroma, sharp fruits. Flavor followed suit, wasnt overbearing on the palate, smooth, yet very full.....a bit more alcohol would have been nice as it mellowed more than I would have liked as it warmed......very good though.

(Bottle, 25cl) Dark red with a beige head. Aroma is tart and fruity. The flavor was a good balance of sweet and sour. It tasted a little light, but it was very refreshing.

A difficult beer. Initial aroma was totally Welch’s grape juice and a full glass has the color of a Burmese ruby. Second sniff is of oak and fermented red grape skins while at the end of the glass the color is of an antique oak table, brown not black. As with most sours this has some wine like traits with a tart, fruity taste. Head reduces to nothing with no lacing. Unique, traditional, tasty if not overly great.

Just had a La Folie...let me see.... <P> Aroma is low intensity vinegar with very mild woody notes and some, but less sour cherry notes then I’d expect from what I have heard. Ruby/brown with a thumb thick tan head. Fore is more malty than sour. Furity notes that, oddly, are quite apple-y..sweet..now I get some sour cherry notes. Thinnish palate with a pretty watery finish. Tasty enough, but comes across as a session sour.
