3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown and thin beige lace. Licorice, earthy, balsamic, sour. Taste is sharp sour, red wine vinegar, old. Crazy but not nice (any more?). Unique but way too sharp. Thin body. No thanks. (UDRBM)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (330 ml) 2008. Reddish brown with no head and no lacing. Aroma of red fruits, vinegar, ketchup, wood and oxidation notes. Not sure I want to go further... Taste is of red fruits (mostly cherries), caramel, chocolate, vinegar, tart fruits. Mouthfeel is thin and completely flat. This beer is quite complex, but I don’t think that all those flavors get along very well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2008 vintage. 330 mL bottle at Beer Bistro, served in a snifter. Pours clear chestnut with a few bubbles but no head. Nose is oaky, with sour fruit and notes of wine, raisins and flowers. Flavour is moderately sour with fruit, molasses, toasted malt, oak and raisins. The finish is long, sour fruit with raisins and toasted malts. On the palate, it is medium in boy with a smooth, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent oaky-roasty sour with wine, molasses and floral notes. Amazing! 2012-01-25

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big thanks to AuroraCrisis for this one. Dark brown color, almost looks burgundy. Smell is complex oud bruin, a little sourness, spices. The flavor is very good but not your typical oud bruin, this seems more spicy and nuanced and has a sourness on the finish that really pulls at your cheeks like a lemon does. This is a nice beer but a little bit pricey and not easy to get a hold of.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 2008 vintage, 10/29/2012. Pours deep reddish brown, almost no head and thinnest of lacing around the glass. Aroma is raspberry jam, with chocolate, caramel and raisins- balsamic character, subtle brown sugar with vanilla, oak. Taste is fruity balsamic vinegar, berries, molasses and a bit of roast malts- cherries follow, with wood, dry finish. Thick body, vinous. Really great, this vintage seems to be hitting its stride.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle via boutip. Pours a flat dried blood stain red with no head or discernible carbonation. Aromas of red wine, tannins, sour funk. Taste is similar, slightly sour, slightly malty, slightly sweet. Flat as water. Red wine taste is very apparent. Meh... This is not a very good sour... Not by any stretch. Go grab some Russian River if you want some real sours. Even though this was an extra, I would probably would not drink again. Scroll past.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cL bottle at the Brugs Beertje. Black, with little head, in a De Struise glass. Sour, full bodied and spiced. Not the most complex brew, but nice. Cross between Rodenbach and wine.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Color is very dark (black?), at least in contrast to the De Koninck’s in the other tables. Aroma is a mixture of vinegar and wine, detected some coffee at some point; no wonder the bartender warned me that this is something very different. She also said that you can taste something new for the first ten sips, every time. Sadly, I cannot confirm this, but this was still very enjoyable. Taste is both sour and sweet, somehow reminds me of sweet soy sauce (the color isn’t far from that either). Not the kind of sourness you would find in a gueuze, as this heavily offset by sweetness. The bartender said she prefers this cold, but I must say I enjoyed this more as it got warmer. Definitely a sipping beer.
