Meilleure sour que j'ai bu dans ma vie ! Au nez, on sent le baril de pinot, les cerises et les levures sauvages! Le goût est parfaitement balancé entre acidité, fruité et alcoolisé. La finale est enrobante, moyennement soutenue et acidulée. Je suis sous le choc! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle into a tulip: Pours brown with a tiny bit of red tint with a thin tanish head. Aroma of cherries, barnyard funk, grass, saison yeast, apples, and tartness. Flavor is awesome, probably the best sour I’ve ever had. Lots of cherry and tart flavor, a little sweetness but not overwhelming, funk, and no yeast bitterness on the back end. Medium body, dry smooth mouthfeel. Fantastic beer.

MrFecesious (903) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle share. Batch 007. Pours a hazy burnt orange. Aroma of sour cherry, apple jolly rancher, red wine, grassy funk. Taste is so tart! It’s exactly what you hope the taste to be. Delightfully tannic/astringent. Dry, crispy and clean finish.

Plovmand (6301) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours amber with a creamy beige head. The aroma has dusty cellar notes with some ripe fruity and ripe berry notes. Cherry, almond and ripe berries in the flavor. The acid is subdued but balances this beer very well. It’s great but I’ve had better cherry lambics.

Well no doubt this is a sour but nowhere near the intensity (of course) but a reasonable interpretation of a Flemish. Sour citrus fruits are very broad albeit not deep nor long.
