It was way more sour than expected. Thought it was decent though. Would have it again.

jgb9348 (4979) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 10, 2015
Hazy brown coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Aroma of sour grapes, malt, light alcohol and a bit of fresh fruit. Medium-bodied; Assertive sweetness from caster sugar and fruit shows up front with a little sour grape finish on the end, but definitely not a sour flavour initially. Aftertaste shows a hint of sour citric acid additives, some honey and syrupy sweetness and a bit of a bitterness and deep flavour of alcohol. Overall, a rather underwhelming beer with some minute sour notes and only a funky sweetness - but still, for some reason, nice to try given that I never saw this in all of double-digit trips to belgium, but settled for it here in New York. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 25-April-2014 for US$4,00 sampled at home in Washington on 09-April-2015.

Hanuta06 (380) - Washington, USA - APR 4, 2015
Serving: from bottle--purchased at The Beer Junction. Aroma: light cherry aroma. Appearance: small, off-white initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-orange body. Taste: lightly sour cherry initial flavor and lightly sour cardboard finish with short duration. Palate: light body, watery texture and flat carbonation. Overall: not good. Tastes like water and cardboard. Palate was terrible.

Shag (2655) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 21, 2015
A murky reddish brown color with a beige head. The aroma contains some toasted if not burnt bread notes along with some woody and cherry notes. Huh I said woody. The flavor is a bit sour with this kind of this vegetable oddness going along with it. A very oakey flavor with some sour apple and cherry flavors. Some caramel showing up in the background. Overall this a bit of a mess of a flemish sour ale. Its still ok and drinkable but its awkward like an in law showing up to your honeymoon.

OldMrCrow (2079) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Tap at the Watershed.

Brown pour, standard Flemish sour nose, sour cherries, lots of brown sugar leaves quite a strong sweet-tart thing going on. Decent but not special.

unclemike (2444) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Light natural fruity smell. Medium brown color with a small white head. Balanced smooth sour.flavor with some fruitiness like grape and grapefruit and some wood notes like it wss aged del roble. Smooth light cool body amd palate. Nice

radio_nowhere (1018) - Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Wife ordered this draft at Madrone’s in Frederick, MD. Served in a tulip glass, reddish-dark copper color with light tan head. Aroma of brown sugar, dark fruit, light tart cherries and faint vinegar. Taste adds notes of light tart apples, caramel, soda-like sugar sweetness, yeast and light chocolate. Medium-light body, low-moderate carbonation, sticky with minimal tart sweet finish. Kind of a bland fruity sour.

11.2 oz bottle pours brown with a off white head. Aroma of cherries, tart and malts. Taste is tart cherry and some yeast.

nearbeer (4008) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 23, 2015
33 cl. pours a clear dark copper with a lasting spit of foam. Aroma is earthy brown sugar with touches of raisin, tart cherry and just a whiff of vinegar. Tastes of toasted walnut, wood, caramel cola and mildly sour dark cherry. Long finish of lacquered cardboard and toffee with a pinch of salt. Light-medium body is lightly astringent and has medium-high carbonation. Quite the muddle, but not awful.
