KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2008
Dark amber with medium head. Sweet and sour aroma with ripe fruits and roasted malt notes. Sweet and sour flavor that holds wood, balsamic and roasted malt. Would be nice if more sour.

BelgiskOlklub (894) - Viby J, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2008
Bottle. Small creamy white head, that’s mostly diminishing. Good lacing. Clear red-brown body. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, cask wood and a fruity cherry background. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. The flavor is well balanced between a moderate sweetness and a moderate acidic, dry, sour finish.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2008
25 cl bottle, via jbrus. Pours a clear amber body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is sweet and sour, vinous, and showing a little brett. The flavor is rather sweet, with a little tinge of sour funkiness on the finish. Cherry skins and pie filling abound. While the sweetness is pretty heavy, it does trail off in the finish making it quite drinkable. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky with moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall, a nice authentic Flemish Sour.

Dedollewaitor (13803) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2008
25 cl bottle @ Plan-B, Copenhagen: BB 04/07. Pours amber/copper with a sprinkly fading head. Aroma is very sweet & vinous, reminds me of danish gløg. Red wine, fruity sour & soft bodied. Sweet and sticky also. A bit dusty/woody - very matured & old feel, but just good all around. So sippable & nice!

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2008
Bottled. Amber colour with small beige head, which quite fastly vanishes almost completely. Aroma is wood, nectar and really sour fruity notes. Flavour is malts, sour fruits, spices and some vanilla. Once it warms up it gets quite rasp- and strawberries.

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2008
Bottle @ Plan B. BBE 20-04-07. Pours a hazy amber with no head at first. There are lots of bubbles reaching for the surface, slowly generating a soft, milky head. As the bubbles surge towards air, the head stays for quite some time. Aroma is sweetish, slight strawberries, wood, tart brett character. Okay mouthfeel. Flavour is rather tart, but with quite a balancing sticky sweetness. Light spiciness with wood and that sense of strawberries. Very soft and easy to drink.

DruncanVeasey (7142) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2008 Aha! Didn’t realise this was made by Verhaeghe. Red amber pour with a white halo. Intensely heady, mouldering apple aroma, wth fruit juice sweetness, vinegar and barrelwood. Brine, apple juice and iron. Sweet-sour, but leaning towards sweet, with caramel and more yeasty pear/apple humming fruit booziness. Bit too syrupy and a bit synthetic, but a pleasantly odd commercial sour ale.
