Expensive and unusual, this is not for anyone not appreciating tartness. White head on a golden body. Strong aromas, wine and cherry and wood. Complex taste of wine, cherry, wood. Balanced by malt, and while sour is not aggressive on the palate as I wouod expect. A sipper. Up there with the Cantillons but a top beer because of its similarity to wine?

3L bottle shared by drewbeerme at his wedding shower. Pours a clear glowing amber with a beige head. Nose of sour grapes, apples, oak, and brett. Whew that’s more sour than i expected. Grapes, pears, earthy, all around tart and oaky. The acidity is a little too much at times but this is a great beer. Big thanks to andrew for sharing this.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 Bottle from Capones, thanks Stegosaurus. I don’t like flemish sours and this one doesn’t change my mind. Too bitter for my taste. It’s just not for me. I wont totally kill the ratings. Updated 1/3/14 Tastes have changed considerably. 3.3 original on 2007. 3.8 in 2014

3 litre bottle, batch 2. Drewbeerme (also known as stripey) shared at his wedding shower. Red-orange with nice white head. Aroma was heavy brett, apple, citrus. Flavor was green apple, tart, a little acidic. Med body. F’n awesome. I loved this beer and thought it was pretty fantastic there was basically a never ending supply of it.

Bottle shared with Blankboy, biegaman, and Hogtown Harry, Harry’s bottle. Thanks for letting me crash your little tasting guys! Neat orange rust pour - thin slick white head. Love that colour! Really strong aroma - sour, cherry, cherry skin, vanilla, leather - complex and stunning. Taste is sour, acidic, almost a little wine like. Very quenching. No alcohol. Complex. Maybe just a tad too acidic after a while. A pretty stunning beer.

Gushed...Cloudy orange/brown with a rocky tan head. Musty nose with some oxidized red wine notes. Flavor had just the right sour/funk balance. Finished like a freshly opened Chianti. Lovin’ the sours!!

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & biegaman -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Batch 002. Pours a cloudy ruby-orange with tiny floaties and a small diminishing white head. Amazing aroma is funky and yeasty along with spices, oak and cherries -- nice and complex. Flavour of tart cherries, yeast, some oak, spices and more -- wow, this is so easy to drink! Medium to full bodied. One of the best versions of the style I’ve had.

Bottle (375ml - batch 02). Shared with blankboy, biegaman and tupalev - my bottle via my buddy Austin. Hazy orange with a frothy off-white head, floaties, awesome. Malty fruity aroma, lemon juice, funky yeast, oak resin, sugar and soft spice - really smooth and balanced. Taste - lemon, yeast, funk, sourness, melanged and blended - excellent. Pretty thick acidic body, medium finish - another solid RR.
