euserphriendly (167) - Holland, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2005
strong red color with plent of yeast in the bottle. A huge head will form due to the yeast giving off gas. The beer is a bit on the dry side with very little flavor.

mixamatt (427) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Tart Cheesy aroma. Cloudy dark amber apearance with white particles and average head. Mild tart apple cider flavor with some bread dough. A mild, well balanced, Flemish sour ale that hides it’s alcohol well.
