3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated 8/4/07. Dark reddish purple coloring. Medium sized white head that settles to a thin film. Leaves behind a spotty lacing. Aroma is of sour apple cider, sweet caramel malts, pear juice, and yeast. The smell is really quite appealing. The flavor is sweet and sour, with sweet caramel malts melding with tart apple cider. Body gets a bit syrupy as it warms, which combined with the carbonation level makes it almost soda-like. Everything is fairly appealing and well done, its just a bit too sweet for me. Would make for a good desert beverage, though.

Tap at Falling Rock. Pours red/brown with thin white head. Smells of cherry. Tastes again of cherry with thin roasted malt sweetness. Good balance with the sour. Finishes with long cherry.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Eulogy: This one pours a very dark, ruby red color. There was almost no head or lacing on mine. Nice sour aroma. Hints of cherries to it. The taste is quite good. It has a mainly sour malty taste, with some residual sweetness. Sour cherries and apples are prevalent, but not overpowering. Very Good!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice tart aroma, with hints of oak and a touch of cherry in it. Pours a dark ruby color with a thin tan head that as it receded, left sheets of lacing on the side of the glass. Hmm... where was all of that tartness in the flavor. The beer comes across mainly sweet with just a touch of sourness in it. Just a touch of oak and cherries survive the sweet vanilla onslaught. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Overall, not something I’ll pick up again. There are much better Flemish Sours out there in my opinion.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a amber colour with a medium tan head. Aroma is tart, fruity, and strong notes of cherry. Initial taste is sour cherry, plum, and dark fruits. Finishing tart and lasting cherry palate. Great lacing of the glass, great head retention, soft carbonation. Everything was perfectly balanced. This stuff rocks!

A liberal sample given to the wife at THall on tap. A sharp hard tart aroma of fruit. A flovor of tart furit cherries mostly I think. A tad of bitter fruit as well. Smooth carbonation and solid mouthfeel. A very good beer overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2007 Pours a deep ruby red with a medium, light tan head. Very nice looking beer. Aroma of tart cherries, vinegar, sour, and mroe fruit. Flavor is much less sour. Sweet instead of sour, fruit, some cherry. Finishes sweet with a light touch of tart cherry (finally!). Clean, crisp body. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2008 25cL bottle. Pours dark with a tan color head. Definite hints of red wine present, but does not detract from the taste. Interesting and likeable bier.
